Farallon's 10/100 Starlet Switches
----------------------------------------
Designed to seamlessly integrate into existing networks, Farallon's line of
Starlet Switches are plug-and-play solutions for optimizing Ethernet and
Fast Ethernet networks. These cost-effective, high-performance switches can
reliably handle frequent transmissions of extremely large data files over
the network. In addition, customers with large networks benefit from the
Starlet Switches' ability to segment networks into smaller more efficient
workgroups. Farallon's Starlet Switches do not require any major wiring
changes or additional costs at the desktop computers to implement. They are
19" rack mountable, offer full duplex support, feature front panel LEDs for
at-a-glance monitoring and simply work with the network hubs and cards that
already in place.

Farallon's Low-Cost Fast Starlet Hubs
---------------------------------------------
Farallon Fast Starlet Hubs, available in 5-, 8- and 16-port configurations,
combine 100Base-T performance with a surprisingly low entry cost. Included
with every Fast Starlet Hub is Timbuktu Express, Farallon's file
acceleration software optimized for transferring large multimedia and
publishing files over Fast Ethernet. The workgroup hubs are ideal for small
to medium size networks that need the high-performance of Fast Ethernet but
do not have the budget, or the need, for elaborate large-scale networking
solutions.

Dr. Farallon's FREE Network Performance Clinic
-------------------------------------------------
In line with Farallon's tradition of providing customer support, Dr.
Farallon's Network Performance Clinic offers FREE telephone network
performance consultation to anyone seeking help with designing their
network for optimal performance, no matter what their budget. Mark Weston
of Mountain Ridge Dataworks who recently sought consultation from Dr.
Farallon expresses, "Contacting the Dr. Farallon Clinic for recommendations
on how to improve network performance was one of the best moves I could
have made. The Dr. Farallon Technician was friendly and very knowledgeable.
We work with many vendors and never quite get the opportunity to have a
specialist help in this way. The consultation was really successful - We'll
be back!" For more information on the Dr. Farallon program call
