Network World review of 5 low-end routers

Network World review of 5 low-end routers

Post by Adam Gaff » Wed, 23 Oct 1996 04:00:00

In this week's issue, Network World reviews branch-office routers from
Bay, Cisco, RAD, RNS and 3Com.

Reviewers Edwin E. Mier, Robert Smithers, Jr. and Roy  Mesker found
that the Bay BayStack Access Node was the the best buy for the dollar,
because it offered the best overall performance, was relatively easy
to configure and had a broad number of connectivity options.

You can read their review on Network World Fusion,  On the main page, enter 2108 in the
DocFinder box.

If you haven't used NWFusion before, you'll have to register first,
but it's free, and once in, you can bookmark any page and not have to
log in again.

1. Network World review of three low-end hubs

Reviewers Kevin Tolly, John Curtis and Elke Passarge take a look at
Intellicom's OFFICEStack  5000 and UB's GeoStax E and T hubs (the
first two are for Ethernet, the latter's a token-ring model). They
found some  powerful features - that were matched by the difficulty in
getting them to work.

You can get the complete review on Network World Fusion
(  After you register (yep, but it's free),
select NetRef, Buyer's Guides and Reviews, then Hubs.  Once in the
review, you'll also find a link to our 4/1 low-end hubs buyer's guide,
which lists detailed product specs, pricing and vendor-contact info
for 61 hubs.
