A forthcoming line of stackable switches from Cisco
could provide IT managers with the acceleration they
need to merge token ring onto the high-speed
networking throughways.

Cisco's Catalyst 3290 token ring switch, to be
released later this spring, will dovetail with the
vendor's proprietary inter-switch link (ISL)
and enable managers to lash their token ring
deployments with high-speed switched Ethernet
through a virtual LAN.
