Zoom Telephonics®Hardware Safe For Year 2000

Boston, MA, JANUARY 12, 1998: - Zoom Telephonics, a leading producer of computer telecommunications products including faxmodems, ISDN terminal adapters, dialers, and remote access routers, today announced that its hardware is safe for the transition to the year 2000.

Zoom faxmodems, TAs, and dialers do not contain any date-specific operating instructions, and will not be affected by the year 2000 problem.

Zoom's remote access routers, the Zoom/Access 2™ and Zoom/Access 8, use a date field for tasks such as event logging and session timeout. The year component is four bytes wide, so that year names 1999 and 2000 are fully supported as four-digit values. These devices have been tested to assure they function as intended when the stored date transitions from 1999 to 2000.

Many Zoom products come bundled with various types of application software. Zoom does not alter this software in any way related to the date. While it is possible that some of this software may be adversely affected by the year 2000, Zoom is not aware of any bundled software having this problem. Zoom does not make any representations that this software is year 2000 compliant. Interested parties should contact the manufacturers of the software directly for further information.

"Our internal information systems are also in excellent shape to handle Year 2000 issues," said Dean Panagopoulos, Zoom's VP-Information systems. "Our company-wide Enterprise Resource Planning System from DataWorks® is completely Y2000 compliant. In addition, we conduct business with major customers and other trading partners using Electronic Data Interchange, and are ready to implement the ANSI Y2000 compliance standards in conformance with our EDI trading partners' timetables."

Zoom Telephonics designs, produces, and markets faxmodems, ISDN products, and other products that link people and their personal computers through the world's largest network, the international telephone network, and connected networks including the Internet and corporate local area networks. Zoom Telephonics is publicly traded on Nasdaq (NASDAQ: ZOOM). Zoom products are produced in Boston, Massachusetts and sold worldwide.
