Farallon Communications, Inc. announced an aggressive industry-leading move to eliminate economic barriers for Fast Ethernet migration with significant price reductions and very attractive upgrade programs for its family of Fast Ethernet products.
As part of the upgrade program, Farallon will accept a "trade-in" of any vendor's 10Mbps Ethernet NuBus card for a Farallon Fast Ethernet NuBus Card, or any vendor's LocalTalk or Ethernet hub for one of Farallon's 100Mbps Fast Ethernet hubs or hub/bridge combination products at unbeatable prices. Farallon's goal is to give customers an economic incentive to move to Fast Ethernet. Farallon designed its Fast Ethernet products to be technically easy for customers to migrate from LocalTalk and Ethernet to Fast Ethernet, and with this announcement it is eliminating the economic barrier as well. Farallon's Fast Ethernet family consists of the Fast EtherTX-10/100 PCI and NuBus Cards, the Fast Starlet 100TX/8 Hub, and the Fast Starlet 10/100 Bridge, giving customers a complete family of Fast Ethernet products from which to build their network. "We are leading the way to reduce the overall implementation complexity and cost of Fast Ethernet to customers," said Ken Haase, product manager. "Now Macintosh users in all businesses, especially pre-press graphics shops, can deploy more Fast Ethernet for less."
