Hayes DSL Gateways and Bridge Modem Begin Shipment
Products Feature Low Cost, Easy Installation, and Advanced Networking

Boston, MA, August 16, 2004 — Zoom Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZOOM) announced today that it has begun shipping two new ADSL gateways and an ADSL bridge modem under the company’s Hayes brand.

The gateways combine an ADSL modem with an integrated local area network router to share a high-speed ADSL connection with up to 253 computers on a network. The gateways also provide advanced firewall security to protect the attached computers from hackers. The Hayes Model 15805 gateway includes an Ethernet port for connection to a computer, hub, or wireless access point. The Hayes Model 15810 gateway adds a USB port for connection to a computer’s USB port, and provides concurrent operation of the USB port and Ethernet port.

The products’ setup uses a Web browser, simplifying setup for an end-user, a network administrator, or an Internet Service Provider. Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) allows remote maintenance by network administrators.

The gateways’ security features include Network Address Translation (NAT) and Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI). The NAT firewall hides computers connected to the Hayes gateways from uninvited access through the Internet. SPI analyzes the protocol and packet addresses being received to determine if the information received from the Internet should be passed through the firewall to the connected computers.

The new Hayes Model 15820 is an ADSL bridge modem, bridging between an ADSL connection and an Ethernet interface on a computer or network. The Model 15820 installs automatically in most situations, and reduces the need for technical support by eliminating router and firewall functions.

The new Hayes products support data downloads at speeds up to 8 Mbps. The gateways include documentation in Dutch, English, French, German, Greek, Portuguese , Spanish, and Turkish. The bridge modem documentation is in English. The products are backed by a two year warranty, U.S. and European multi-lingual support teams, and Zoom’s twenty-seven years of experience designing and producing communication products for small offices and homes.
