Bay Networks has announced that, from 26 January, it will be offering a choice of 56Kbps modem technology on its remote access concentrators, making it the first vendor to ship both rival 56K standards.
The company claimed it is now the only vendor to offer a concentrator that can ship with either 56Kflex - the would-be standard from Lucent - or 3Com's challenger X2.
Bay also announced that all its remote access products will henceforth be sold under the new brand name Adapteon.
Equipping the newly renamed Adapteon 5399 Remote Access Concentrator module and the standalone Adapteon 8000 RAC with two 56Kbps modem choices allows Internet service providers to offer Net access to X2 and K56flex users. Both modem technologies can eventually be software upgraded to the forthcoming V.PCM standard (see yesterday's story).
