The IBM 42H1698 Nways Token Ring Stackable Hub brings many of the functions of large, chassis-based hubs to a cost-effective, stackable unit
The 42H1698 kit includes manuals, cables, & rack mount kit
The 42H1698 allows you to install only the number of local area network (LAN) ports needed, and allows you to easily increase capacity as required, from a minimum of 16 to a maximum of 128 active or passive ports.
Each hub unit supports 16 ports. This capability makes it perfect for work groups and remote sites.
The stack consists of a management base and up to seven expansion units. These units are connected with IntraStack cables, giving the stack a single-system appearance. Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is used to manage the network. Three levels of management support -- Bronze, Silver, and Gold -- allow you to select the management capabilities that meet your needs. Network administrators can avoid problems, easily isolate problems that do occur, and quickly initiate repairs. Network managers will be in full control when using the IBM Intelligent Hub Management Program DOS Entry Version 2 and the IBM Nways Manager for Windows.
The IBM 42H1698 is an Active Media model that provides Gold level of network management: SNMP, Status, Fault Reporting per port, and Ring Traffic support plus Per Port Monitoring and eight Groups of RMON plus all 13 RMON groups and Event Logging.
