Bay Soups Up System 5000

Bay Networks Inc. this week will show off the 5380 and 5580 routing subsystems for its System 5000 switching hub. The 5380 and 5580 are Ethernet and token-ring modules, respectively, that each support four backplane interfaces and two expansion slots on the front panel for synchronous and ISDN WAN ports, or additional LAN interfaces. Each module routes 50,000 packets-per-second, and as many as four modules can fit into the 5000 chassis. The 5380 and 5580 are priced from US$13,000 to $23,000 and will be available in the second quarter.
