U.S. ROBOTICS SUPPORTS ROCKWELL'S V.FAST CLASS MODULATION

 SKOKIE, Ill., Nov. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. Robotics, Inc. (NASDAQ: USRX) today announced it has recently signed an agreement with Rockwell International Corporation (NYSE: ROK) to incorporate Rockwell's V.Fast Class (V.FC) technology for high-speed data modem transmission into selected U.S. Robotics products.
 "It is important to help our customers increase throughput and maintain compatibility as the final pieces of the ITU-T V.34 standard are put in place," said Jonathan Zakin, U.S. Robotics executive vice president, sales and marketing. "Our customers rely on products that provide the widest range of connectivity options and the highest speeds available. Our support of non-ITU-T technologies such as V.FC assures that our products meet these needs."
 V.FC technology uses line probing techniques that permit adapting to symbol rates which optimize the configuration of the modem to achieve the maximum throughput supported by the telephone networks. This technology uses the wider bandwidth available on today's telephone networks, making it significantly more immune to noise and other telephone line impairments than V.32 bis technology.
 "U.S. Robotics has a well-recognized position in the industry as a leading modem supplier. We are pleased with their selection of Rockwell's V.Fast Class as an implementation choice for pre-V.34 modem products," said Armando Geday, Rockwell International's business director, modem systems.
 Rockwell's Telecommunications Business Segment includes three principal businesses: the Digital Communications Division (DCD), the Switching Systems Division (SSD) and the Microelectronics Technology Center (MTC). DCD, headquartered in Newport Beach, Calif., has been a pioneer in modem technology for more than 30 years. Today it is a world leaders in fax and data modem components.
 Rockwell International is a multi-industry company applying advanced technology to a wide range of products in its electronics, aerospace, automotive, and graphics businesses.
 U.S. Robotics, Inc. is a leading designer, manufacturer and marketer of data communications systems products. Both corporate headquarters and manufacturing operations are based in Skokie, Ill. U.S. Robotics owns and operates U.S. Robotics Ltd. in Slough, England, U.S. Robotics, s.a. in Lille, France and P.N.B. s.a., based in Suresnes, France. The company markets its products to business, industry, government agencies and original equipment manufacturers, and to end-users through the personal computer distribution channel.
