Gadzoox adds low-end FC hub
Interoperable with the company`s 12-port Gibraltar GS Fibre Channel hub, Gadzoox Networks` 6-port Gibraltar GL hub offers the same feature set as the 12-port version, according to company officials. Targeted at storage area network configurations, particularly those based on Windows NT, the Gibraltar GL is a managed hub with copper and optical gigabit interface converter (GBIC) options. Like the GS, the Gibraltar GL includes Gadzoox` PerfectPort feature for data reliability, and can be managed via the company`s Ventana Management applications.
The Gibraltar GL base price is $3,995, or $666 per port, unpopulated (e.g., without GBIC converters). Copper GBICs are priced at $60; shortwave optical GBICs at $250. An IMM-Management Module costs $695 per network. www.gadzoox.com.
