You young kids today...back in my day we had Token Ring...4Mb rings, 'cause
we were too poor for 16Mb rings...none of this fancy-smancy ethernet...and
we *liked* it...
I assure you, there was tons of Wellfleet gear that went out the door
without a whiff of ethernet. I installed no small amount myself. Indeed,
Wellfleet made routers at a time when it wasn't clear that Ethernet was
going to take over the world as it did, and many shops, especially big ones,
had opted for TR & FDDI.
By the time Bay came into being, things were different, though...
