ZoomAir Wireless LAN Products Earn Wi-Fi Wireless Fidelity Certification from WECA

Boston, MA, April 17, 2000 - Zoom Telephonics Inc., (NASDAQ: ZOOM), today announced that its first two tested 11 Mbps wireless LAN products have passed the Wireless Ethernet Compatibility Alliance (WECA) test suite. The tested products were the ZoomAir Wireless Network Interface Card (NIC) and ZoomAir Access Point Software.

The ZoomAir products successfully interoperated with a wide range of IEEE 802.11b 11 Mbps wireless networking products from a number of manufacturers. The approved Zoom products will display the Wi-Fi logo to certify interoperability. In the words of WECA, the Wi-Fi logo "represents proven technology and offers wireless connectivity at speeds up to 11 Mbps. It is ideally suited for wireless networking applications in the home or office."

"Zoom is proud to have products certified in the first wave of WECA's Wi-Fi testing," said Frank Manning, president of Zoom Telephonics. "Standards and interoperability drive high volume because they assure customers of a wide range of competitive solutions. Zoom is committed to having a broad line of Wi-Fi products, including a range of NICS, antenna options, hardware and software access points, and building-to-building bridges. Zoom is uniquely able to integrate these products into a broadband strategy. No other company is as focused on the issue of distributing broadband Internet access through advanced networking products, including wireless."

The successful testing of the ZoomAir products was conducted at the Silicon Valley Network Labs (SVNL) in San Jose, California, an independent testing facility contracted by WECA.
