AT&T ANNOUNCES HIGH-POWER ALL-DIGITAL CORDLESS PHONE

 LAS VEGAS, Nev., Jan. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- AT&T (NYSE: T) today announced a high-power, all-digital cordless phone with four times the range of today's conventional cordless telephones.
 The AT&T Extended Range Cordless Telephone 9530 operates in the 900 MHz frequency range at up to one watt of power with spread-spectrum, frequency-hopping technology over 173 channels, providing virtually interference-free conversations with consistent sound quality up to one mile from the base.
 "Our customers expect innovative, easy-to-use technology that enhances their personal communications," said Nicholas C. Stevens, vice president and general manager, cordless telephones, AT&T Consumer Products. "As the market leader, we have 'raised the bar' for cordless in range, sound quality and privacy."
 The AT&T 9530 uses full digital transmission to encode speech onto a radio signal, much like music is encoded onto a CD, and to provide clearer sound over a longer range than cordless phones operating in the 46/49 MHz frequency.
 AT&T's spread-spectrum, frequency-hopping architecture, which is patent-pending, actually avoids interference by "hopping" the radio signal among 50 of the available 173 channels during a conversation. If any of the channels experience interference, the 9530 automatically swaps it for a new, clearer channel.
 Because it operates over a different frequency, the AT&T 9530 is unaffected by forms of interference common to 46/49 MHz cordless phones, such as garage door openers, baby monitors and radio intercoms. It also performs well in environments typically difficult for conventional cordless, such as high-rise apartment and multi-level buildings.
 The 9530 also gives users an enhanced level of call privacy in a cordless telephone. The random selection of 50 of 173 channels, along with digital speech encoding, make it nearly impossible to eavesdrop on conversations.
 "The 9530 represents a breakthrough for residential cordless telephones," said Jim Wilson, AT&T product manager. "The unique way in which we've applied our technology to the 900 MHz frequency band gives our customers these unprecedented benefits."
 The 9530 also provides other features common in the highest-quality cordless phones currently available from AT&T, including two-way page and intercom, speed dialing, receiver and ringer volume controls, and last-number redial.
 The AT&T 9530 was designed and developed by AT&T Bell Laboratories, employing advanced integrated circuit technology developed jointly with AT&T Microelectronics. It will be manufactured at the AT&T Consumer Products' plant in Singapore.
 The AT&T Extended Range Cordless Telephone 9530 will be available in late spring at AT&T Phone Centers nationwide for $449.99. For more information, call 1-800-222-3111.
