U.S. ROBOTICS ANNOUNCES FAX SERVERS;SHARED ACCESS NETWORK FAX PRODUCTS PROVIDE INTEGRATED SOLUTION

 SKOKIE, Ill., Nov. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. Robotics (NASDAQ: USRX) today announced the addition of two fax servers to its Shared Access line of network communications products. The Shared Access Fax Servers, available for both Ethernet and Token Ring networks, are send-and- receive fax solutions including all necessary hardware and software. Both products will ship in the first calendar quarter.
 "Network fax products represent a new market opportunity for our Shared Access line," said Jonathan Zakin, U.S. Robotics executive vice president, sales and marketing. "These new products allow us to capitalize on the growing fax server market, combining our expertise in the fax modem arena with our experience in network communications products."
 The LAN fax server market is rapidly expanding. The market will roughly double in size from 1993 to 1994; the domestic market alone for fax server products will reach a half-billion dollars by 1997 (source: BIS Strategic


Decisions).
 "Networked fax capability has been the most requested feature from our Shared Access customers," added Zakin. "The products we've introduced have all the powerful features our customers need for a complete, integrated hardware/software solution."
 The Shared Access Fax Server Ethernet and Shared Access Fax Server Token-Ring provide send-and-receive fax capabilities for any size LAN. They include several methods of routing of inbound faxes, as well as complete logging and management capabilities. The Shared Access Fax Servers are based on U.S. Robotics' proven DSP-based fax modem technology, incorporating the ITU-T V.17 standard for fax speeds up to 14,400 bps.
 U.S. Robotics' Shared Access products provide dial-in and dial-out access for any size LAN. The Shared Access Fax Server Ethernet and Shared Access Fax Server Token-Ring are companion products to the company's Communication Server 386 and LAN modem, which provide dial-out data transmission and remote LAN access via remote control and remote node. The company has not announced pricing for the Shared Access Fax Servers; however, they will be priced in line with U.S. Robotics' other low-cost Shared Access products.
