U.S. ROBOTICS INTRODUCES THE 56K USB FAXMODEM.

U.S. Robotics now enables users to access the Internet faster and easier by combining the convenience of a Universal Serial Bus (USB) connection with the advantages of V.92 technology. The U.S. Robotics 56K USB Faxmodem installs in three easy steps and delivers quick, reliable Internet connections without the need for an external power supply.

The 56K USB Faxmodem can be plugged into the USB port of any PC without having to turn the computer off. The device's V.92 technology allows e-mail and attachments to be sent up to 50 percent faster than with a V.90 modem. U.S. Robotics' exclusive Internet Call Notification (ICN) application eliminates the need for a second phone line. It alerts users to incoming calls and allows them to choose to disconnect from the Internet to take the call or ignore the call waiting signal and remain online. Moreover, users can screen calls and accept an incoming call while online.

According to Amy Hansen, analog product line manager for U.S. Robotics, "The 56K USB Faxmodem offers the power and speed to establish an Internet connection quickly, so users spend less time dialing up and more time online. It's a high-speed, inexpensive Internet access device that delivers the benefits of V.92 technology and is perfect for users looking to simplify the cabling in their home or office workspace." Hansen added, "U.S. Robotics is recognized for providing customers with quality products. Our desktop and portable analog modems consistently outperform the competition, a fact that is recognized and appreciated by our customers. Indeed, U.S. Robotics continues to hold the number one position in retail analog modem sales."

U.S. Robotics offers a full line of analog modems with a variety of features that meet a wide range of customer needs. The U.S. Robotics analog modem family includes controller-based, contollerless and softmodems in external, internal and laptop form factors. Designed, developed and tested by U.S. Robotics' experienced engineering and quality assurance teams, U.S. Robotics analog modems are simple to install, easy to use and are available through all major distribution channels including retail, e-tail, catalog and resellers.

The U.S. Robotics 56K USB Faxmodem comes standard with fax and communications software and is compatible with both V.92 and V.90 standards. Currently available for purchase through all major distribution channels, it carries a two-year warranty and sells at a manufacturer's suggested retail price of $59.99.
