Short: UB Networks to license MAC technology

UB Networks is one of several vendors angling to meet the demand for Gigabit Ethernet products by partnering with a start-up. UB will license Packet Engines Media Access Controller technology so it can offer an uplink module for its GeoLAN/500 switching hub. The uplink will be available by mid-1997 at prices starting at under $6,000. Analysts expect similar moves by every networking vendor over the next few months.
