"RockSolid Enterprises, a provider of innovative Information Appliances including routers, Internet Access Devices and Business / Residential Gateways, will demonstrate the first of its RockSolid Box line of Internet Access Devices (IADs) in Atlanta during the week of September 26 at the Networld+Interop / Linux Business Expo 2000 trade shows."

"RockSolid Box IADs are powerful and secure, yet easily managed through innovative Web-based and console-based interfaces. The devices combine multiple features that were formerly only attainable by linking sets of high-end routers, firewalls, and VPN devices. What's more, RockSolid Enterprises breaks the barriers for usage by providing local and remote management features that are both straightforward for beginning users and highly customizable for expert users and IT professionals."

"As small businesses and home consumers increasingly switch from PC Based dial-up accounts to xDSL and Cable Broadband access to the Internet, we believe the demand for small business and home-based LANs will increase dramatically", said Stephen C. Nodvin, Ph.D., the President of RockSolid Enterprises. "Users will need and want powerful and easy-to-use Internet Access Devices, like our RockSolid Boxes, to securely interface their local LANs to their new Broadband Internet connections and to interface to their organizations' VPNs." Nodvin cited studies that project the home networking equipment & residential gateway market to grow to over $5.7 billion by 2004."
