The quaintly-named TOPS – a Sun Microsystems Company claims to have sold 100,000 of its network packages and was pitching for the figure to hit 125,000 by the end of last month. The Berkeley, California company also announced a new hardware device that attaches desktop computers and peripherals to low-cost AppleTalk/FlashTalk networks. The new product, called the TOPS TeleConnector, supports FlashTalk, TOPS’ standard for AppleTalk commucations. FlashTalk enables MS-DOS micros on an AppleTalk network to communicate at three times AppleTalk speed and supports MS-DOS-to-Macintosh communications at the standard AppleTalk rate of 236Kbits-per-second. TOPS TeleConnectors are fully compatible with AppleTalk networks and Farallon’s PhoneNet Plus. The TOPS TeleConnect Systems also supports networking software over accessible, twisted pair cabling, such as standard telephone wire. The system is now shipping to US dealers at the suggested retail price of $59.
