VICOM Internet Gateway supports first Macintosh T1 Card
T1 Internet Access for Macintosh now available
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., June 18, 1998 – Vicom Technology today announced
that its VICOM Internet Gateway now gives Macintosh users direct T1 access
to the Internet when used in conjunction with the Keyspan SMART SERIAL 6 –
T1 Edition Card.
The VICOM Internet Gateway is Vicom Technology’s unique TCP/IP software
router for MacOS. When used on a high performance Power Macintosh G3
System, the VICOM Internet Gateway and Keyspan card give full T1 throughput
of up to 2Mb/sec providing fast and industrial strength connection to the
Internet for an entire LAN. The other computers on the network (LAN
clients) gaining access to the Internet through the VICOM Internet Gateway
can be of any type including Windows 3.x/95/98/NT, MacOS or UNIX. With the
ability to support up to 1,024 LAN clients, the Gateway also includes
advanced functions such as NAT / Proxy (sharing of one IP address for an
entire network), DHCP (automatic allocation of IP configuration
information), PPP server for remote access support and Firewall security.
“Previously people using a server to gain T1 LAN access to the Internet
were limited to NT, NetWare or UNIX servers” noted Brian Morris, Vicom
Technology’s President. “The new Macintosh G3 computers are fast powerful
computers and make an excellent platform to provide high speed T1 Internet
access. The combination of MacOS and our VICOM Internet Gateway software
together with Keyspan’s card make this solution both less expensive and far
easier to use than other server or hardware router alternatives”.
Both the VICOM Internet Gateway and Keyspan SMART SERIAL 6 – T1 Edition
Card are available now.
The price of Keyspan SMART SERIAL 6 – T1 Edition Card is $699 and prices
for the VICOM Internet Gateway prices are from $295.
