A 12-port 100 Base-TX Fast Ethernet Concentrator (£290 + VAT per port) will be available from the end of this month, with a 16-port auto-sensing 10/100 Fast Ethernet switch (£496 + VAT per port) and a 24-port 10Base-T desktop Ethernet switch (£205 + VAT per port) following from December.

Two-port ATM and FDDI high-speed uplinks (£6,600 + VAT per port) will be available from February 1997. A GeoBus backplane is now included in the GeoLan/500 chassis, providing 34.7Gbit bandwidth for 10- and 100Mbits/sec switching.

"The high density and low price-per-port of the Fast Ethernet switch will mean companies will switch to full Ethernet," said Steve Brigden, UK product marketing manager at UB.
