Bay Networks Inc, San Jose has added to its router range, with the release of the BayStack Advanced Remote Node Modular Branch Office Router and the Nautica Corporate LAN Access Module 840. The base configuration of the Advanced Remote Node router provides a single local network interface – Ethernet or Token Ring – with two wide area network adapter module slots and one expansion module slot. It also includes an option for four, eight, 16 or 32Mb memory, a 4Mb or 8Mb Flash PC Card, a console and modem out-of-band management ports with an integral V.34 modem option, a redundant power option and an Ethernet RMON probe option. The Advanced Remote Node will be available next month at a starting price of $1,950. The CLAM 840 provides a singl e Ethernet, single synchronous configuration, with IP and IPX routing, Point-to-Point Protocol support and Frame Relay with RFC 1490 encapsulation. It will be available by the end of the year, with a list price of $1,000. Also newly-announced are a series of new modules. The Model 5393 Remote Annex/Primary Rate Interface Remote Access Server for the System 5000 MSX delivers dial-up access to corporate networks, supporting analog and ISDN calls simultaneously. Hardware Compression Net Modules for the Access Stack Node are claimed to deliver 20% to 50% savings in line costs. Quad Synchronous Net Modules for the Access Stack Node and System 5000 are claimed to double the density of the products’ synchronous interfaces, while the Dual Multichannel T1 Net Module for the Access Stack Node and System 5000 provide two T1 interfaces for ISDN Primary Rate Interface, Frame Relay and DACS communications. A high-capacity redundant power supply unit is also available for the Access Stack Node. The Quad Port Multichannel Link Module for Bay’s Backbone Concentrator Node and Backbone Link Node routers is claimed to provide a high-speed, high-density system for Primary Rate Interface or channelized T1 communications. New Routing Services softw are – BayRS Version 11.0 – includes a range of new features including Dial Optimized Routing and Enhanced Multilink Point-to-Point Protocol. And the next release of Optivity Internetwork is to include ControlCenter, described as shifting the focus from device-level management to a high-level network perspective that enables groups of routers to be managed together.
