FDDI to Cisco FDDI

Hello out there,

We are looking at several vendors for a FDDI Switch, that will be
talking to Cisco Workgroup FDDI concentrators and Cisco routers running
FDDI interfaces.  Any one have any problems with other vendor product
used in this fashion.

Thanks for the HELP!!

Dan,

We've installed several 7000's and 4700's with Bay Networks 5000 series FDDI
hub with no problems whatsoever.

Regards,
     Simon...

We are using a Fore Systems PowerHub FDDI Switch connected to a Cisco 4700
and 7505 routers with no problems.  All connections are FDDI.
