FRECOM SHIPPING NEW 1-LINER(TM) FAX/MODEM
FRECOM SHIPPING NEW 1-LINER(TM) FAX/MODEM FREMONT, Calif., Nov. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Frecom Communications has
redesigned its one-of-a-kind 1-Liner 9600 bps fax board for the PC, adding both a 2400 bps modem and processor to it. The 1-Liner Fax/Modem, unlike any other fax boards on the market, works with the user's answering machine and distinguishes between voice, fax, and data calls and answers each appropriately with no human intervention-- all on a single telephone line.
Frecom Communications Co. today began shipping its new 1-Liner(tm) Fax/Modem, the only fax board on the market designed to work on a single telephone line with a phone and answering machine. Recently shown to dealers at COMDEX/Fall, the Frecom 1-Liner marks the first time that the PC user can have a modem, fax and answering machine all on the same telephone line and never miss a call. The Frecom 1-Liner Fax/Modem can tell the difference between incoming voice, data and fax calls and answer each incoming call without human intervention. No additional external hardware is needed, which means a savings of at least $100 over street prices of standalone fax switch boxes. The 1-Liner also promises great savings over the annual costs of $300-$1,000 required for a second phone line dedicated to facsimile and/or data traffic. The user can configure The 1-Liner in any of four ways to handle 1) voice and fax, 2) voice and data, 3) fax and data or 4) voice, fax, and data. The 1-Liner listens in on the phone line and determines whether the call is fax, voice, or data without blasting a modem tone into the caller's ear. The new The 1-LinerModem has an on-board microprocessor that lets send and receive faxes in the background under DOS or Windows 3.0. Sending and receiving procedures share system resources in a way that makes these operations practically invisible to the user. The 1-Liner Fax/Modem and the included Frecom software let the user fax fully formatted documents either from DOS or Windows. Also included are unique software capabilities etching faxes and files from afar, and tools for the accessing the telecommunications resources of the world. FarFetchFax(tm) is software that allows the user to call his or her office from some other location and retrieve faxes that have been received since the last call. FarFetchFiles(tm) allows users to log on to their computer and retrieve files from another modem-equipped computer. Price and Availability The 1-Liner Fax/Modem from Frecom is available at computer dealers and superstores throughout the United States. It has a suggested retail price of $199 for the DOS version and $239 with The Fax Window software. The original 1-Liner (fax only) is available in the same outlets at a suggested retail price of $169.
