VCL Host (No Longer Available)

Harness the Power of Datakit II VCS or BNS-2000 VCS with Your Sun Solaris Systems

If you're using Lucent Technologies' Datakit II VCS or BNS-2000 VCS data networking products and Sun Solaris systems (Ultra, SPARC or X86), then you need PACLABS VCL Host to get the most out of your investment. PACLABS VCL (Virtual Circuit LAN) Host is used in mission-critical environments worldwide, providing all the features necessary to optimize the use of the network. With all the benefits of CommKit, plus TCP/IP, Telnet, and printer support, PACLABS VCL Host can help integrate your LANs with your Datakit II or BNS-2000 network.

Power, Performance and Reliability

PACLABS VCL Host is a fully integrated hardware/software package that creates a high-speed, fiber optic link from Sun Solaris systems to Datakit II or BNS-2000 switches.

The latest release adds the power and performance of PCI-based systems to the existing SBus and ISA products. So now you can match the Solaris system to the application, or migrate existing applications to the latest hardware platforms.
