Zoom/PCMCIA V.34C FaxModem

Boston, MA., Oct. 4, 1995 - Zoom Telephonics, Inc., one of the highest-volume producers of modems and faxmodems in the world, has begun shipping its new Zoom/PCMCIA faxmodem. The Model 520 Zoom/PCMCIA FaxModem V.34C is a state-of-the-art faxmodem card that can be used in the office and on the road as both a landline and cellular send-and-receive fax device and V.34 28,800 bps data modem.

"The V.34C is the perfect traveling companion for professionals on the go," said Frank Manning, President and CEO of Zoom Telephonics, Inc. "It's a highly integrated V.34 PCMCIA card with a feature package you can't find anywhere else. It offers both landline and cellular capability, MNP 10EC Enhanced Cellular technology, and the ability to work with over 30 cellular phones, including Motorola flip phones," he said. "In addition, it has a built-in DAA, flash memory, battery-conserving circuitry, and comes with super software. We're very proud of PC Card-Guard, Zoom's proprietary circuitry for protecting the card against destruction if it is accidentally plugged into a digital PBX system. The V.34C complements the well-received Zoom/PCMCIA FaxModem 14.4C and is a bargain at a street price of about $269."

The Zoom/PCMCIA FaxModem V.34C is a fully Hayes-compatible 28,800 bps V.34 modem and 14,400 bps send/receive fax device. It is fully compatible with all other ITU standards, including V.Fast Class and V.32bis. It is ready to run with desktop and laptop computers and PDAs equipped with a Type II or III PCMCIA slot. The V.34, like all Zoom PCMCIA FaxModems, is equipped with Flash memory to enable software-based firmware upgrades.

The PCMCIA FaxModem V.34C provides "wired" communications when connected to a standard telephone line jack, and "wireless" communications when connected to a cellular telephone. Its advanced MNP 10EC Enhanced Cellular technology assures high connectivity and data transfer rates even in challenging cellular environments. The PCMCIA FaxModem V.34C is cellular-ready, with all required cellular circuitry on-board. No bulky cords or special adapters are required. A Zoom cellular activation kit, which contains appropriate software and a slim, telephone-specific lightweight cord, is required for cellular communications.

The PCMCIA FaxModem V.34C is equipped with PC Card-Guard, a special feature that fully protects the modem's circuitry if it is accidentally connected to a digital PBX phone system like those found in many hotel and office environments. PC Card-Guard senses and diverts excessive current before it can damage the faxmodem.

A sleep mode option conserves power when the PCMCIA FaxModem V.34C is running on a computer's battery. When the faxmodem is in sleep mode, it "wakes up" when it senses activity, such as a modem command or an incoming call.

Zoom/PCMCIA FaxModems come complete with a memory-saving Enabler and Phoenix PCM+ software. PCM+ lets you hot-swap PCMCIA cards on the fly, and use your computer with other PCMCIA cards without reconfiguring software. That means you can swap your Zoom faxmodem for your PCMCIA hard drive or other PCMCIA card without shutting down your computer or worrying about compatibility. It's a big plus and a lot different from most other PCMCIA faxmodems.

The Zoom/PCMCIA FaxModem V.34C is made in the USA by Zoom Telephonics, Inc., an industry leader in telecommunications since 1977.
