Business Editors, High Tech Writers



New version of widely-deployed product adds Ethernet switch ports,

analog monitoring, and increased connectivity options

Applied Innovation Inc. (Nasdaq:AINN) announced the release today at the Supercomm show in the Georgia World Congress Center, Atlanta, Georgia of AIscout-2, a second generation mediation and concentration device for data communications networks. AIscout-2 brings increased connectivity and functionality to the popular AIscout(TM) with the addition of Ethernet switch ports, analog monitoring, and dual WAN connections.

The AIscout was introduced in 1999 to provide an economical connectivity solution for local loop data communication. It combines concentration and mediation in a single device and has been widely deployed in small central offices, controlled environment vaults and co-location sites. The AIscout transports operation, administration, maintenance, and provisioning data between network elements and operational support systems.

The addition of Ethernet switch ports in the AIscout-2 allows the device to be used to segment ports by utilizing port-based VLANs, reducing traffic and congestion. New analog monitoring capabilities expand the unit's functionality and versatility by allowing monitoring of variables such as temperatures, voltages and pressures. The addition of dual fiber connections provides redundancy for SONET ring applications. The unit can also be configured with dual T1 or E1 connections, or combinations of fiber, T1 and E1.

"The AIscout has been widely accepted because it reduces the number of circuits required for monitoring and maintenance, which provides more circuits for subscriber revenue," said Robert L. Smialek, President and CEO of Applied Innovation. "The AIscout-2 enhances the value of this proven solution by opening new applications and expanding connectivity options."
