The Century 2000 line is being targeted at workgroups and sites with relatively slow traffic. They are fixed-port remote access servers based on the Motorola 25-MHz 68360 processor with 2MB of flash RAM and 2MB of DRAM. The line is available in 4, 8, and 16 port versions with support for the V.34 protocol and ISDN devices.
The Century 9000, which Hayes says it will offer in three different chassis designs, are for use in branch or remote offices, large central sites like a corporate intranet, or even ISP hubs. The 9000 Series access servers are based on the Motorola 68360 processor running at 33 MHz with 2MB of flash RAM and 2MB of DRAM.
The Century 9200 includes 6 module slots, the Century 9400 chassis has 8 module slots, and the Century 9800 chassis includes 12 module slots. Access device modules will be available in the following types: V.34 analog modems, digital modems, T1, El, ISDN BRI and PRI, frame relay, and asynchronous serial, Hayes said.
Both lines of servers will rely on Windows management software for installation, configuration, security, and management from either local or remote locations.
The Century 2000 series will be priced from $2,174 to $3,713 and ship by the end of this month. The company hasn't yet set prices for the Century 9000 series, which will begin shipping in the first quarter of next year.
