Short Take: Bay adds module

Bay Networks announced a new module for its System 5000 switching platform that ties mainframe systems to networks based on IP. The new module, due to ship in November for $11,995, serves as a gateway to mainframes that do not support TCP/IP connections. The module fills two slots in a 5000 chassis and includes support for Token Ring, Ethernet, and FDDI LAN connections. Coinciding with the hardware launch, the company will deliver a software suite that allows users to access mainframe applications through a Web browser.
