Summary
  • Xircom CEO Dirk Gates founded the company in 1988, along with Chmn J. Kirk Mathews, with the goal of connecting networks and portable computers. The company pioneered the use of the parallel port to connect portable computers to Ethernet and Token Ring LANs; its LAN adapter attaches notebook computers to networks in minutes. Gates describes Xircom as a mobile networking company; it now provides four different types of solutions for portable-to-LAN communications, including wireless local and wired remote solutions. The company's core products continue to be LAN connectors for Ethernet and Token Ring networks; its product mix is split about evenly between PCMCIA card-based adapters and Pocket parallel-port adapters, although it is moving more toward PCMCIA. Gates does not believe wireless LANs will replace wired LANs; he says a wireless LAN is more a LAN extension than a wire replacement.
