MOTOROLA AIDS DSL DELIVERY WITH MULTIPLE PROTOCOL SUPPORT.

Service providers saddled with legacy DSL systems can now jump start their DSL deployment thanks to multiple protocol support in Motorola's CopperGold Lite (XS143462SK1) solution. Motorola (NYSE: MOT) has added software designed to extend the chipset's ability to be compatible with a spectrum of DSL protocols, which now includes ANSI T1.413, in addition to G.lite (G.992.2) and ITU full-rate (G.992.1). The support of these protocols makes Motorola's DSL chipset a flexible solution for service providers, PC OEMs and modem manufacturers.

"In order to be compatible with existing DSL deployed today, Motorola has added this additional protocol support," said Matt Nelson, product manager for the Networking and Computing Systems Division of Motorola Semiconductor Products Sector. "Through this addition, Motorola has created a simple solution at no additional cost to help service providers tap into the existing DSL marketplace now as their systems evolve to support the G.lite and ITU full-rate specifications over time."

The CopperGold family of ADSL products, built on Motorola's strength in communications processors, includes the innovative lite solution and the highly integrated multi-rate solution. Motorola's interoperable CopperGold Lite chipset powers next generation modems by providing V.90 analog and ADSL G.lite connectivity with an easy transition from 56 Kbps to 1.5 Mbps. The chipset consists of a DSL AFE, 24-bit DSP with integrated PCI 2.2 compliant interface, and the required software for multiple-protocol functionality, supporting ITU full-rate (G.992.1), G.lite (G.992.2) and ANSI T1.413 specifications.

Availability

The enhanced CopperGold Lite solution is currently in full production and is available in volume today. For more information, contact your local Motorola sales office or distributor or visit the Company's Web site at http://www.motorola.com/coppergold.

(NASDAQ:TROY) has announced that its subsidiary, TROY XCD will develop the technology to apply the Bluetooth wireless standard to JetSend, a device-to-device communication protocol developed by HP. The combination of JetSend and Bluetooth will allow a wide range of mobile electronic devices to communicate with each other without the need for cables or special device drivers.

Bluetooth (www.bluetooth.com) is a rapidly emerging new technology specification that provides low-cost, short-range radio links among mobile devices such as laptop PCs, PDAs and cellular phones, and stationary devices such as printers, fax machines and computer networks. The Bluetooth specification has been endorsed by many of the market leaders in the telecommunications and computing industries, including Nokia, Ericsson, Intel, Toshiba, IBM, Motorola, Lucent, 3Com and Microsoft. International Data Corporation forecasts that over 100 million devices in the US and approximately 450 million devices worldwide will be Bluetooth-enabled by 2004.

"The excitement surrounding the Bluetooth specification is unprecedented," said Patrick J. Dirk, TROY Group's chairman and CEO. "The ability to enable Bluetooth wireless communication utilizing JetSend and TROY technology is an enormous opportunity."

JetSend is an open communication protocol that allows for ad-hoc exchange of meaningful information between devices without the need of a PC or specific device drivers. JetSend is well suited for Bluetooth applications because it intelligently negotiates the best possible communication between the devices without requiring any user intervention. For example, a Bluetooth laptop user could print a document on an HP LaserJet printer and later print that same document on an Epson inkjet printer without any need for PC printer drivers. In contrast, traditional printing methods typically require the user to install a new driver each time he wants to use a different printer. In addition to printing over Bluetooth, JetSend is specifically designed to allow a wide range of devices to communicate with each other over a variety of data transport technologies, including infrared, radio frequency and TCP/IP. For example, the user of a JetSend-enabled digital camera could send photos to a range of devices via Bluetooth connections, regardless of the transport mechanism, without having to `translate' the communication based upon the characteristics of its destination devices.

HP and TROY will co-develop an integrated wireless communication solution featuring the JetSend communications protocol running over the Bluetooth transport. The first working prototypes are expected to be demonstrated at the Bluetooth Congress 2000 on June 14-16 at the Centre de Congres in Monte Carlo. TROY will be introducing Bluetooth-enabled devices beginning in Fall 2000.
