GENERAL DATACOMM TO UNVEIL ITS OFFICE COMMUNICATIONS MANAGER; TCA ATTENDEES WILL WITNESS WORKINGS OF NEW NETWORK PLATFORM

 GENERAL DATACOMM TO UNVEIL ITS OFFICE COMMUNICATIONS MANAGER;
 TCA ATTENDEES WILL WITNESS WORKINGS OF NEW NETWORK PLATFORM
 MIDDLEBURY, Conn., Sept. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- General DataComm, Inc. (NYSE: GDC) announced today that it will debut its new Office Communications Manager(A)Transport Management System (OCM(A)TMS) at the upcoming Tele-Communications Association annual trade show and conference in San Diego.
 Designed to interconnect small, remote locations onto high capacity corporate backbone networks, the OCM(A)TMS integrates LAN, voice, FAX, data and video applications over common digital facilities for significant network transport savings.
 The OCM(A)TMS allows users to take full advantage of a wide variety of carrier N X 64 Kbps digital service offerings like fractional T1/E1. These services let users acquire bandwidth in smaller increments more closely matched to actual needs. Substantial savings can be realized for companies with remote locations needing access to the corporate backbone network.
 Applications ranging from traditional voice and data transport, to videoconferencing, medical imaging and high resolution graphics internetworking can be consolidated onto a common digital access facility through the OCM(A)TMS. Going beyond the mixed computing application environments of the 1990s, however, it also meets the need to link dispersed local area networks, many of which are developed independent of one another, but must now share information.
 The OCM(A)TMS can support full LAN interconnectivity across the backbone network, even if the LANs employ different architectures, such as Ethernet or Token Ring. Integrated with General DataComm's LAN(A)TMS, the OCM(A)TMS adds the functionality of a bridge/router, thereby turning the node into an intelligent hub.
 The OCM(A)TMS can create up to 4 subaggregates within either of the dual outbound physical T1/E1 aggregate(s). Diverse routing options are thus permitted as the subaggregates be routed through the public network Digital Cross-connect System, (DCS) to different TMS destinations. Moreover, separate physical links to multiple remote locations may be replaced by a single link at the central site into the digital cross connect network, resulting in line cost savings.
 The OCM(A)TMS is fully channel-compatible with GDC's high-end internetworking platform., the Transport Management System (TMS). Network management functions like configuration, monitoring, diagnostics, and software upgrades are all accessed from a TMS Controller. In concert with the TMS, the OCM(A)TMS permits routing patterns to be changed in real time by a network operator from a TMS Controller, or automatically in response to changing network conditions. Network reliability is further strengthened by the combination of the dual network interfaces and the TMS intelligent alternate routing.
 Priced starting at under $4,000, the OCM(A)TMS is available now,. in both standalone and rackmount versions.
 The TCA demonstration will highlight the consolidated access for remote devices operating in a traditional data and voice environment.
