DELTA AIR LINES SELECTS U.S. ROBOTICS' COURIER V.32bis FAX AS CORPORATE STANDARD 14.4 Kbps MODEM

 SKOKIE, Ill., Feb. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. Robotics, Inc., (NASDAQ: USRX), today announced that Delta Air Lines Inc., (NYSE: DAL) selected the U.S. Robotics Courier V.32bis Fax Modem as the corporate standard for 14.4 Kbps modems. The Courier V.32bis Fax will be used for standard end user, asynchronous dial-up communication, and will be recommended in any future installations at all Delta offices both domestically and worldwide where asynchronous communication becomes a requirement.
 Atlanta-based Delta, one of the world's largest airlines, evaluated many 14.4 Kbps modems and chose the CCITT compliant Courier V.32bis Fax. "We selected the U.S. Robotics' modem for a number of reasons," said Rick Wood, manager in Delta Air Lines Information Technologies Dept. "Most significant is that U.S. Robotics modems are certified in a number of countries throughout the world. Since Delta serves 34 countries and has approximately 65 international offices, this was a serious consideration."
 Wood added that the courier's remote configuration feature was important to the Information Technology Dept.'s efficiency. Having the ability to configure the modems by dialing in rather than trying to talk the end user through the process obviously saves a lot of time.
 "Being selected by Delta Air Lines continues our commitment to provide the world's leading data communication users with products of the highest quality, performance and reliability," said Jon Zakin, U.S. Robotics executive vice president, sales and marketing. "U.S. Robotics is equally dedicated to protecting these same users' investment by having the option of upgradability."
 The high-speed courier modems provide the most cost-effective upgrade path to the forthcoming CCITT 28.8 Kbps standard. Field upgrades will be available when the CCITT 28.8 Kbps recommendation is completed. Official approval of the standard is not expected until January 1994.
 U.S. Robotics Inc., is a leading designer, manufacturer and marketer of data communications systems and products. Both corporate headquarters and manufacturing operations are based in Skokie,Ill. U.S. Robotics owns and operates U.S. Robotics Ltd., Slough, England, and U.S. Robotics, s.a., Lille, France. The company markets its products to business, industry, government agencies and original equipment manufacturers.
