Actually the product tree looks a little different.

The original Netstar product came in two versions. Both
had a 16 slot chassis with an external RMS control unit.
The difference was in the later version the RMS was 
a rack mount unit.  This product is now called the GR II.
The GRF 400 is a 4 slot unit and all of the control function
have been internalized. The GRF 1600 is a 16 slot box
with completely internalized control functions.

Hope that helps.
