"ImageStream Internet Solutions has unveiled four new Linux-based multiprotocol routers that deliver high performance, high port density, and high availability at prices up to 40% less than competing routers."

"ImageStream routers include the "Enterprise Linux(TM)" distribution which enables network administrators to quickly and easily install and deploy high-speed LAN and WAN connections."

"J.C. Utter, Director of Marketing and Sales at ImageStream says, "No one expects to get a Lincoln for the price of a Chevy. But that's what ImageStream is doing. At the high end, ImageStream's Enterprise Router(TM) can do what other high-end routers do and it costs about half the price. At the entry level, you get a modular router for the price of a SOHO product."

"Utter says that ImageStream will be shaking up the marketplace by giving network engineers a real choice when it comes to router products. Utter says "When it comes to price, performance, port density, and high-end capabilities, ImageStream has all the big boys beat."
