Jun 29, 2000, 13:08 (8 Talkback[s])

"Zoom Telephonics (NASDAQ: ZOOM) is now shipping the Zoom/FaxModem 56K PCI Plus. The new Model 2920 is a controller-based PCI-bus internal modem for desktop Windows and Linux PCs. The Zoom/FaxModem 56K PCI Plus is designed for applications requiring maximum processing power and easy system integration."

"A processor on the Zoom/FaxModem 56K PCI Plus controls the Hayes AT commands and data compression, unlike Windows-only PCI modems which rely on the same central processor that runs Windows on the host computer. The Model 2920's on-board controller and on-board digital signal processor result in a more stable system and simplified system integration. The Model 2920 is ideal for use on servers and gaming computers, or anywhere system stability and processing power must be maximized."

"The Zoom/FaxModem 56K PCI Plus supports Windows 95, 98, 2000, NT 4.0, and Linux. "This is an excellent product for the growing Linux market," said Terry Manning, Zoom's Vice-President of Sales and Marketing. "The Model 2920 also provides enhanced system performance for system integrators, Value Added Resellers, and on-line gamers."
