There are at least two ways to buy and install a system of work stations: you can buy individual computers and other equipment and install it or have it installed, or you can buy systems from suppliers of such systems, who have designs readily to your needs. Some of the companies who offer these ready-made design and systems are computer manufacturers, while others are not, and some are well-known firms (well known to the general public, that is), while others are not. For example, among those offering systems are Apple Computer Co., A.B. Dick Co., and TRW. But the list also includes such lesser-known names as Bridge Communications, Inc., American Photonics, Inc., and The Braegen Corporation, among many others.
