GENERAL DATACOMM SPEEDS UP PURSUIT OF PC LAN MARKET; NEW MODEM FAMILY USES V.FAST TECHNOLOGY FOR HIGH-SPEED DIAL-UP ACCESS TO CORPORATE LANS

 MIDDLEBURY, Conn., Jan. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- General DataComm, Inc. (NYSE: GDC) announced a new generation of multi-functional, switched network products that will bring more cost effective LAN access to users in remote locations. Using V. fast technology, these new products will allow users to run their applications at very rapid speeds over ordinary phone lines, cutting line costs significantly. Burgeoning bandwidth needed for activities like large file transfers and graphic- intensive applications make V.fast transmission throughput (up to 128kps, asynchronous) highly desirable for users who must communicate with corporate headquarters. The first version will be shown at the upcoming COMNET '93 trade show in Washington, D.C. early next month.
 The series rests upon an entirely new technology platform developed by GDC to accommodate a number of planned internetworking products. This unrestricted platform is, of course, available in the Company's familiar packaging options, to ensure conformity with GDC's large installed base of DeskTop, DataComm and SpectraComm product families.
 The new series will support V.fast characteristics, using proprietary techniques, until the proposed standard is ratified by the International Telegraph and Telephone Consultative Committee. Thereafter, a simple firmware download will endow GDC's V.fast modems with any changed or new characteristics required to fully comply with the standard. No field engineering visit is required, thus minimizing service interruptions.
 Subsequent product releases will include a Dial Management System modem, controlled from a Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) workstation.
 The first product in the series, the DeskTop V.fast, will be available in June 1993. Pricing will be finalized by early February 1993.
 General DataComm, Inc. is a leading provider of multimedia networks and telecommunications equipment worldwide. Based in Connecticut, GDC serves corporate customers and telephone operating companies throughout the Americas, Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Australia/New Zealand.
