EFFICIENT NETWORKS AND CONEXANT TO REDUCE SDSL CONNECT TIMES AND PROVIDE EXPANDED INTEROPERABILITY.

Efficient Networks (Nasdaq:EFNT) has announced that the next release of its SpeedStream(R) 5851 symmetric digital subscriber line (SDSL) router and SpeedStream 7451 integrated access device (IAD) will support AutoBaud operation, a technology developed by Conexant Systems Inc. (Nasdaq:CNXT) to speed SDSL service deployments and interoperability.

By incorporating Conexant's ZipWire SDSL solution, Efficient Networks offers customers faster connect times, quicker recovery from circuit changes, freedom from time-consuming pre-provisioning and greatly expanded interoperability with a wide range of central-office systems.

The SpeedStream 7451 next-generation IAD is designed for small businesses, remote and branch offices, home offices and telecommuters requiring telephone and fax features, as well as high-speed Internet and corporate access. It is optimized for high-bandwidth business applications such as Web-based research or transport of large e-mail attachments.

Conexant's AutoBaud technology is designed to enhance the connection set-up process between SDSL equipment operating at any one of the line rates that SDSL technology supports, and to reduce time-consuming, manual-line qualification. AutoBaud allows carriers to automatically qualify and determine the maximum data rate supported by the line, alleviating the need for sending a service technician.

In addition, AutoBaud enhances interoperability by allowing the premises device to sense central office equipment in use, thus enabling it to load the appropriate Layer 2 protocols prior to the connection being established.?
