KATRON ANNOUNCES SPOKESMAN 2020 ENHANCED HUB WITH MANAGEMENT AND CASCADE SUPPORT AT A NEW LOW COST PER MANAGED PORT

 HOUSTON, Sept. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Katron Computers, Inc. (Houston) announces an advanced 10Base-T Ethernet hub with management, cascade expansion support and much more, all at the industry's best price per managed port. The new Katron Spokesman(TM) 2020 Enhanced Hub is available for $1,295 (all prices suggested US resale at participating Katron resellers; inquiries invited). A Management and Cascade Upgrade to the month-old Spokesman 2000 Hub is available for $595.
 The Spokesman 2020 features an RS232 management port, plus a Netware HMP (High Performance Management Port) connection. It offers single- unit management for DOS PCs or NMS hub service through the RS-232 port. It also offers cascaded-group management for NMS hub service through the HMP port. Katron also offers an HMP card for the server for $195.
 Each Spokesman 2020 rack- or desk-mount hub provides 16 unshielded twisted pair (UTP) RJ-45 ports for 10Base-T, a BNC thin Ethernet port and an AUI port that supports hub-to-hub connections. Its proprietary cascade bus permits stacks and cascades of as many as eight units, which appear to the network as a single hub (one repeater count) with as many as 128 UTP ports, eight BNC ports and eight AUI ports.
 "We want Spokesman to provide Katron's customers with a single solution that grows with them, seamlessly, regardless of how many ports or which management standards they need," says Katron VP Kenneth Huang. Katron will shortly introduce SNMP agents for its Spokesman hubs. Support for other network management standards is possible in the future, Huang says.
