MICROCOM EXPANDS V.32BIS MODEM FAMILY WITH TOP-OF-THE-LINE QX/4232BIS+

MICROCOM EXPANDS V.32BIS MODEM FAMILY WITH TOP-OF-THE-LINE QX/4232BIS+
 WASHINGTON, Jan. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Microcom, Inc. (NASDAQ: MNPI) (Norwood, Mass.) developer of the Microcom Networking Protocol (MNP), the de facto modem standard, today announced the QX/4232bis+, the newest member of its V.32bis modem family. The QX/4232bis+ is ideally suited for users of high-power PCs and larger systems requiring very high throughput, solid security and error-free transmission over dial-up or leased lines.
 Enabling users to transfer data at speeds up to 57,600 bps, the QX/4232bis+ eliminates performance bottlenecks that frequently occur when running complex applications with slower modems. The high-speed QX/4232bis+ also provides the throughput users require for data-intensive applications running on midrange, mainframe and supercomputers.
 "We designed the QX/4232bis+ for specialized applications requiring high-speed communications," says Jay Bazzinotti, Microcom modem product manager. "With the emerging trend toward high-performance modem use, the QX/4232bis+ may easily become the standard for users of general applications as well."
 In addition to 2-wire dial-up operation, the QX/4232bis+ supports 4-wire leased lines. This preserves users' modem investments as the QX/4232bis+ is compatible with most 4-wire modems.
 If the leased line connection is disrupted, the QX/4232bis+ automatically switches to a 2-wire dial backup. While in backup mode, the modem continually monitors the leased line and switches back to 4-wire operation when the line is restored. Throughout the backup process, the QX/4232bis+ maintains complete data integrity.
 Since many large computer systems are installed in banks, financial institutions and Fortune 1000 corporations, Microcom designed the QX/4232bis+ with multiple security modes to protect sensitive financial and technical data. Sophisticated security features enables users to program a security database for up to 20 users, selecting fixed dial-back, variable dial-back or passthrough security, depending upon the user's needs. Other security features are also provided.
 For both synchronous and asynchronous operation, the QX/4232bis+ provides CCITT V.25bis dialing commands. This feature is particularly valuable to users of IBM AS/400 systems, which commonly support V.25bis dialing.
 Following its strategy of providing high-performance capabilities in its modems, Microcom also includes MNP 10 in the QX/4232bis+. MNP 10 provides users with an effective solution for communicating data over cellular networks and other adverse channels such as noisy land lines. MNP 10 enhances modem connectability and adjusts packet size and modem speed to optimize performance of the QX/4232bis+.
 Other features provided in the QX/4232bis+ include:
 -- Auto Logon -- Multiple Configurations
 -- PCS Security -- UUCP/Kermit Spoofing
 -- Remote Access -- Auto Dial-back on Loss of Carrier


Microcom will ship the QX/4232bis+ to authorized dealers in mid-February. The modem will have a list price of $1,099.
 Microcom's other V.32bis modems include the QX/4232bis desktop model and the recently announced MicroPorte 4232bis portable modem. Both include MNP 10 and provide speeds up to 38,400 bps.
 Microcom is a PC connectivity company headquartered in Norwood, Mass., with offices in Danbury, Conn.; Wilmington, Del.; Durham, N.C.; Caguas, Puerto Rico; and international offices in France, Hong Kong, Singapore and the United Kingdom.
