TELULAR INTRODUCES INDUSTRY'S FIRST WORKING SYSTEM FOR MULTI-LOCATION, SINGLE-NUMBER COMMUNICATIONS

-- Compact PCS One' Unit Uses Existing Cellular Service;
 Transforms Hand-Held into Private Phone Line' --
 DALLAS, March 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Telular Systems, the international leader of fixed cellular technology, has pioneered another technological breakthrough with the introduction of PCS One, an advanced new telecommunications system that enables end users to place and receive calls from multiple locations through a single telephone number.
 PCS One, introduced at the 1993 Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association (CTIA) conference, combines Telular's most advanced generation of fixed cellular technology with the proven reliability of existing cellular service.
 Telular's PCS One transforms a hand-held cellular telephone into an independent telephone line to which standard telephones, fax machines, computers and any other line-based telephone equipment can be attached.
 When the hand-held phone is placed in the special PCS One charging unit, all standard telephone equipment linked to its standard RJ11 port is instantly activated for use on that cellular line. Through the use of multiple PCS One units, a single hand-held phone can activate the same cellular address in unlimited numbers of locations.
 There are still questions as to what format true personal communications systems will take in the next two to five years,'' said Jim Phillips, president
of Memphis-based Telular Systems. In the meantime, the international telecommunications industry has tremendous equity in our 100-year-old wired infrastructure, and the younger cellular infrastructure, which is growing much more rapidly and seemingly without boundaries.
 What we have done is create a working system that enables all the equipment from the wired half of our infrastructure to operate on the efficient new cellular side. This same system gives end users the flexibility of accessing the complete spectrum of both technologies using a single telephone number. And we have designed the new PCS One so that it can be further adapted to any format that becomes the future standard for PCS in the U.S. and internationally,'' he said.
 Phillips explained that the executive who uses the systems's hand held on the road during the day can drop it into a PCS One unit at the office, which then creates his or her private cellular line, accessible through the company's telephone system. At the end of the day, the same hand-held phone can be placed in a PCS One unit at home, and every phone in the house will immediately be operable on that cellular line. The same executive also can have PCS One units at a vacation home, boat and other locations so that complete voice and data service are always available without the ongoing cost of maintaining separate telephone lines.
 Internationally, the PCS One solution is even more in demand right now,''
Phillips said. Given the direction of cellular networks outside of the U.S., we anticipate that our greatest immediate demand for this system will be in South America, parts of Europe and other overseas markets.''
 Phillips added that Telular's PCS One also will likely serve as the primary telephone service for a large number of current and future end users in the U.S.
 The major cellular operators in this country are well prepared for the introduction of PCS; many already offer pricing plans that are quite
competitive with standard telephone service,'' Phillips said. With the introduction of PCS One, end users can immediately take advantage of these cellular network savings currently available in Rural Service Areas, and in dense Metropolitan Areas.
 As cellular charges continue to decline, Telular's PCS One will be more and more in demand as a basic telecommunications service in the U.S.,'' he said.
 The PCS One system currently operates with the new Blaupunkt model TC-132 hand-held cellular phone, which features a full 1.2 watts of power, and the new Blaupunkt TC-123, which operates on .6 watts for hand-held communications and is boosted to the full 1.2 watts when placed in its PCS One unit. Telular will soon introduce PCS One units that operate with hand-held phones from larger than a standard charger unit. PCS One is completely programmable with the hand-held phone, and requires no programming skills or special training to operate.
 Telular is currently discussing distribution plans with leading cellular operators and telephone companies throughout the U.S.
 Telular's PCS One will be available to end users in April of this year, and is expected to be priced for retail sale at approximately $395 per unit; the suggested retail price for the Blaupunkt TC-132 and TC-123 hand-held cellular phones is $899.95 each.
 Founded in 1986, Telular has developed and patented telecommunications interface technology that greatly expands upon the traditional applications of cellular voice and data communications. Telular technology instantly converts any phone system, fax or computer to available cellular service. Telular products provide wireless service when traditional telephone service is more expensive, or is too costly to install or maintain, unavailable on a timely basis, or of poor quality. And Telular offers one of the fastest growing, most flexible technologies for data monitoring and telemetry. Telular products also provide efficient back-up communications when regular service is interrupted. Telular is the worldwide standard for fixed cellular voice and data communications -- the one true bridge between wire and wireless.
 The line of fixed cellular products developed and marketed by Telular include the compact PhoneCell(TM) 1, PhoneCell(TM) 4, PhoneCell(TM) 24, and modular PhoneCell CPX(TM); and the new Telular PCS One(TM), an advanced new telecommunications system that enables end users to place and receive calls from multiple locations through a single telephone number. Other Telular products include the TelGuard(TM) wireless security and fire alarm system, the T-Fax(TM) mobile facsimile and Telular's line of wireless cellular pay phones for off-shore and marine use, mass transit and literally anywhere land lines can't go.
