AT&T PARADYNE ANNOUNCES DEVELOPMENT OF NEW MODEM

    LAS VEGAS, Nov. 16 ~PRNewswire~ -- AT&T Paradyne continued its modem technology leadership by announcing today it has developed a modem that achieves the world's fastest transmission speeds of 28,800 bps over standard telephone lines.
    Designed by AT&T Paradyne's development teams in Largo and at AT&T Bell Laboratories, this breakthrough will allow customers to plan their future network applications based on efficiency and cost-saving benefits of the newest speed.  The new speed is twice as fast as the current 14,400 bps transmission rates.
    The company is the first to provide 28,800 bps modem test results to the CCITT V.fast standards committee.  The only other 28,800 bps test results were achieved by companies using simulated modem modulations, rather than with actual modems.  Expected availability of the new products is set for the second half of 1993.
    "We're excited about the new modulation scheme," said AT&T Paradyne's vice president and general manager of Advanced Dial Technologies, Jean-Claude Vrignaud.  "It's also important to note that we are providing test data to the CCITT for 28,800 bps using an actual product.
    AT&T Paradyne also announced a migration plan for its COMSPHERE 3800 modem customers.  The plan will allow customers to upgrade their existing modems to the new V.fast standard once it is approved by the CCITT.  The new V.fast upgrades will cost $350.
    Headquartered in Largo, Fla., AT&T Paradyne develops, manufactures and markets global data communications products.  The AT&T subsidiary also licenses high-bandwidth transmission transceiver technologies to worldwide telecommunications suppliers.
