 U.S. TOTAL ARMY PERSONNEL COMMAND (PERSCOM)
 TO HOST SHOWCASE OPEN HOUSE DURING ISDN PROJECT 1992
 ALEXANDRIA, Va., Nov. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Total Army Personnel Command (PERSCOM) will join more than 70 government and civilian organizations throughout the country who are participating in the TRanscontinental ISDN Project 1992 (TRIP '92) during the week of Nov. 16-20. TRIP '92 is a nationwide celebration that will launch the beginning of the National Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN).
 The PERSCOM showcase open house will include a presentation and demonstration of how it is using ISDN to address its imaging, voice and networking requirements. Presentations will be held from 12:30- 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 17, through Friday, Nov. 20, at PERSCOM Headquarters in the Hoffman Complex, 200 Stovall St., Alexandra. Persons interested in attending should call 703-325-0676 to register for the presentation. Guests will be required to sign in at the Eisenhower Avenue entrance to Hoffman Building No. 1. An escort will arrive promptly at 12:30 p.m. to guide participants to the presentation area. The presentation will last approximately one hour. The Hoffman Complex is located directly across the street from the Yellow Line Eisenhower Avenue Metro Station. Participants arriving by car must register for parking. For more information on temporary parking, call 703-325-5119. Parking is not free in the Hoffman Complex, and cars without parking stickers are towed.
 Kicking off TRIP '92 on Monday, Nov. 16, the first call will be made over the National ISDN network from the TRIP '92 headquarters in Reston, Va., just outside of Washington, to sites in Chicago, Huntsville, Ala., and Pasadena, Calif. At the same time, more than 70 ISDN user companies and organizations -- with approximately 150 locations in 26 states, four Canadian provinces, parts of Europe, Asia and Australia -- will open their doors to the public to showcase their ISDN applications. TRIP '92 is being sponsored jointly by the North American ISDN Users Forum and the Corporation for Open Systems.
 The U.S. Total Army Personnel Command is a member of the North American ISDN Users Forum, an organization established in 1988 under the auspices of the National Institute for Standards and Technology. The forum provides users of ISDN technology the opportunity to influence developing ISDN technology to reflect their needs. The Corporation for Open Systems, through its ISDN Executive Council, is working to accelerate the implementation, deployment and usage of ISDN products and services. Its members represent ISDN users, computer and telephone equipment manufacturers, telephone service providers and manufacturers of telecommunications switches.
 ISDN technology offers simultaneous voice, video, data, graphics and signaling over a single telephone line. Although the service has been available locally in many areas, with the advent of National ISDN, customers in some areas will now be able to connect over the long distance network.
