PROCESSOR UPGRADE GIVES TELEMATICS PCP CUSTOMERS THREE TIMES GREATER PERFORMANCE: MEMORY UPGRADE ADDS UP TO 64 MB RAM

 FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla., Aug. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Telematics International Inc. (NASDAQ-NMS: TMAX) today announced that its customers can upgrade the power and memory capacity of their multi-processor PCPs and get credit for their previous purchases under a new program called The Great Exchange.
 Investment Protected
 The program is designed to protect investments that customers have made in Telematics equipment, while letting them bring new technology to their existing network equipment.
 "Telematics is committed to providing customers with an economical upgrade path to higher performance," says Matt Laws, director, product marketing and management for Telematics. "We believe customers should be able to take advantage of technological advances, using their existing equipment."
 With an installed base in excess of 45,000 packet and frame relay nodes, Telematics estimates that more than 20,000 nodes worldwide will be eligible for upgrade.
 040s Replace Existing Processor
 Customers can replace their existing processors with new High Performance 68040 Processors and receive a credit when they are returned to Telematics. The 68040-based processors offer up to three times greater performance compared with 68020 processors. This provides support for:
 -- High-speed packet and frame relay services.
 -- Full utilization of T1/E1 packet services.
 -- Enhanced call set-up rates.
 -- Decreased nodal transit delays.
 -- Improved PCP software application performance.
 -- Switching performance up to 6,000 packets per second.
 Memory Expansion
 Customers can expand memory capacity, swapping 4-megabyte MAM memory modules for 16-megabyte High Capacity Memory Modules (HMM). Total memory can be increased up to 64 megabytes supporting:
 -- Increased number of sessions (logical/virtual circuits).
 -- Expanded quantity of application and services.
 -- Significant increases in the number of network nodes managed by a single Network Control Center
 Two For One
 For each 6040 ordered, a maximum of two 68020 processors can be exchanges for a credit of $2,500 each. For each 16-megabyte ordered, a maximum of two 4-megabyte modules can be exchanged for $2,500 each.
 "The credit is applied after a customer's regular discount," said David Moxey, NET25 product line manager. "This can result in significant savings compared with the regular list price when the discount and the credits are applied."
 The offer lasts through Dec. 10, 1993.
