by CBR Staff Writer| 09 May 1988

That corporate mouthful, TOPS, A Sun Microsystems Company has a new hardware device that attaches desktop computers and peripherals to low-cost AppleTalk/FlashTalk networks. The Teleconnector supports FlashTalk, TOPS' standard for AppleTalk communications, which 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 System also supports networking software over accessible, twisted pair cabling, such as standard telephone wire. The system is now shipping to US dealers at $59.
