Digital's new switching hub
The VNswitch 900 switching hub from Digital's Network Product Business is designed to act as either a stand-alone switch or snap into Digital's DEChub 900 high-speed switching chassis with a firmware upgrade. The new hubs allow simultaneous switching between Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, FDDI and ATM technology. The firmware upgrade also doubles chassis throughput to 5.6Gbit/sec.
The VNswitch family features four models. The VNswitch 900EX has 12 switched Ethernet ports and two Fast Ethernet ports, and carries a tax inclusive price of $14,060. The VNswitch 900EA includes the 12 switched Ethernet ports but features a single ATM port, and has a tax inclusive price of $18,749. The VNswitch replaces the ATM port with an FDDI port and has a tax inclusive price of $20,089, while the VNswitch 900EE features 24 switched ports and has a tax inclusive price of $14,637.
