The embeddable version of Novell's Netware will be used in print servers and fax machines following its first port to an eight-bit chip.
H Bollmann Manufacturers (HBM) has ported Netware Embedded Systems Technology (Nest), normally a 16-bit technology, to the Z80 eight-bit processor, which is used in faxes, scanners and print servers. Such office devices will then be able to operate as nodes on Netware and Intranetware networks.
However, this is likely to be a short term market as most US office products are now moving to 16-bit processors, although there is still high demand for eight-bit in Japan. HBM is also developing Nest-enabled products for control of home and office appliances, telecomms equipment and vending machines.
