Boca Research ships new 24-port workgroup hub.

BOCA RATON, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 10, 1995--Boca Research Inc. (NASDAQ:BOCI) ships its newest member of its family of Ethernet solutions for network expansion, the BOCAHUB-24 Plus.

The product enables a network manager to connect users and build a new workgroup or to connect workgroups to an existing local area network (LAN). The BOCAHUB-24 Plus (Product Code BEN240) carries a suggested retail price of $999.


The BOCAHUB-24 Plus provides a cost-effective workgroup solution. At the low cost per port of $42, it provides workstation connectivity for 24 10Base-T ports with RJ-45 connectors, plus one 10Base2 port with a BNC connector and one 10Base5 AUI connector for cascading to existing backbone networks.

Clearly labeled LED indicators confirm status and operation for individual ports as well as hub status at all times. The BOCAHUB-24 Plus complies with the IEEE 802.3 specification and features a highly integrated design which constantly monitors the signal quality ensuring reliable operation.


As an added bonus, an additional port is available via an optional plug-in module which allows direct connection to fiber optic, 10Base2, or 10Base5 cabling. The 10Base2 and AUI modules allow separate backbones to be tied together enabling the unit to function as a network repeater.

Product codes for these optional modules are as follows: Fiber Optic, BENFBR, SRP $259; BNC, BENBNC, SRP $79; AUI, BENAUI, $49.


Boca Research's Director of MIS, Melinda Earley, comments on the BOCAHUB-24 Plus. "The BEN240's fully-featured design enables a user to realize the benefits of ease of use. It makes efficient use of its rack space--it's sleek and small. All of the product's LEDs and ports are clearly labeled in non-technical terms, so installation is easy. If a user has a basic understanding of networking, installation could be completed without ever opening the manual," she concluded.
