Gigabit
extends to campus distances


A Hewlett-Packard Co. module for selected models in the HP ProCurve line of switches
can extend Gigabit Ethernet service over campus backbones.


The $1,999 Gigabit-LX module supplies a single-port, long-distance Gigabit Ethernet
connection for the ProCurve 8000M, 4000M and 1600M switches.


It has a range of up to 5 kilometers on 9-micron single-mode fiber, and up to 550
meters on 62.5- or 50-micron multimode fiber.

3Com Corp. has developed a family of voice-access switches for frame relay and IP WANs.
The PathBuilder S200 family lets sites add voice service to their existing router-based
data networks.


The switches have a variety of analog and digital voice interfaces over either frame
relay or IP or both. They grew out of a cooperative relationship with Motorola Inc.’s
Internet and Networking Group and can interoperate with branch office or central site
products.


The Santa Clara, Calif., company prices a starting configuration at $2,795.
