TELEMATICS INTERNATIONAL ANNOUNCES NEW LAN STRATEGY FOR MULTI-PROTOCOL ACCESS; COMPLETE SUITE OF LAN SOLUTIONS FOR ALL TCP/IP APPLICATIONS

 FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Aug. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Telematics International Inc. (NASDAQ-NMS: TMAX) today announced its new LAN strategy, providing complete integration of LAN/WAN capabilities, centralized network management and cost-effective use of bandwidth.
 As part of this strategy, Telematics is launching a family of TCP/IP interconnection products with packet switching and frame relay support.
 Complete System Integration
 In keeping with its multi-protocol access philosophy, Telematics' LAN strategy provides complete system integration, interconnecting LANs across WANs and supporting application migration within existing IT systems.
 The cornerstone of Telematics' new strategy is to address customer needs of integrating multiple heterogeneous systems, regardless of protocol variations.
 With the integration of numerous user access devices into a single system, Telematics is able to offer its customers maximum bandwidth with minimum investment in infrastructure. This is particularly relevant for network service providers who are responsible for providing a broad range of applications and interfaces while also maintaining defined levels of service to discrete users.
 Remote LAN Access Capabilities
 One of the key benefits of Telematics' LAN strategy is its ability to provide remote LAN access capabilities, enabling remote LAN access to a central office system on an as-required basis, as specified in a customer's service level agreement. By connecting users of a remote LAN across the WAN, and subsequently disconnecting from the WAN-based on- traffic demand, Telematics is able to offer substantial cost savings in the operation of the customer's network.
 New Suite of Products
 As part of its LAN strategy, Telematics is launching a new suite of compatible products, enabling many different classes of users to take advantage of the wide area network. Available from September 1993, this product suite includes:
 -- ACP ELX designed as branch or customer premise equipment which enables integration of multiple data streams.
 -- PCP IP-XS which supports multiple LANs alongside high speed packet and frame relay switching capabilities.
 "Telematics has always adopted a strategy which recognizes the need to integrate multiple systems, regardless of whether they are standard, de facto or proprietary protocol, such as SNA, X.25, BSC and so on," said Lawrence Cattell, Telematics senior vice president of marketing.
 "We see LAN access as an important part of migration in IT systems, providing access to new technology that is being used in some applications, but which must run alongside the existing IT systems.
 "As a WAN company, we understand the requirement to make efficient use of trunk bandwidth. We have therefore built intelligent handling of protocols into all our products -- whether they are LAN or WAN protocols -- to make the most efficient use of bandwidth for user data, not network overheads."
 Telematics designs, manufactures and markets computer systems and software products for voice and data communication applications and networks. It provides a full range of frame relay products under the NFX brand name, including frame relay switches, frame relay concentrators and frame relay access devices called FRADs. Telematics' NET25(R), SmartNet(R) and Digital Wideband Networks include a complete line of wide area networking products designed specifically for voice and data communications applications and networks. This includes a full range of programmable packet switching systems, frame relay systems, access communications processors and T1/E1 networking multiplexers. Telematics is also developing an extensive ATM-based product family under the NCX product line. Telematics, headquartered in Fort Lauderdale, has approximately 380 employees worldwide with facilities in five U.S. locations, Basingstoke, England, Frankfurt, Germany and Paris.
