SPECTRUM INFORMATION TECHNOLOGIES, INC. ANNOUNCES BREAKTHROUGH IN DATA TRANSMISSION ON CELLULAR SYSTEM, COMPANY FILES FOR PATENT

 MANHASSET, N.Y., Jan. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- In a move to extend its patent holdings within the cellular industry, Spectrum Information Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ-NMS: SPCL) ("Spectrum") announced today that it is applying to the U.S. Patent Office for a patent for its new technology that discriminates between voice and data transmission.
 Patent approval would not only generate Spectrum license and royalty fees but would allow the company to charge a usage fee from data communications over cellular networks. "Given the proliferation of wireless modems, computers and Personal Digital Assistants, this new technology could unlock a gold mine for both Spectrum and the cellular service providers," said Mark Plakias, president of Strategic Telemedia, a New York City-based telecommunications research and consulting firm.
 Presently a cellular service provider cannot discern the difference between voice and data transmissions, therefore billing cannot be differentiated for data communications, such as faxes or electronic mail. Spectrum's technology is software based in the cellular switch.
 "This technology is one more step in Spectrum's drive to dominate the cellular data transmission industry with state-of-the-art technology and protective patents," said Peter Caserta, chief executive officer, Spectrum.
 Spectrum, recognized as a pioneer in the basic technology required to allow reliable transmission over cellular radio telephones, holds eight patents, 200 patent claims and an additional 70 patent claims pending. Spectrum's patent rights gained substantial credibility with an Aug. 18, 1992 U.S. Patent Office reissue of this cellular modem/SPCL protocol patent.
 Spectrum is a leader in developing, marketing and supporting integrated wireless data communications systems using patented technology and proprietary methods to enhance productivity and effectiveness among mobile executive and field forces.
