"Company's novel "Value Added ISP Program" enables providers to offer small business an out-of-the-box "big business connectivity" solution, while facilitating DSL access upon availability."

"BASCOM Global Internet Services, pioneering developers of thin server productivity solutions for small business, today announces its "Instant-On" technology, designed to give small business secure, high-performance Internet access-immediately-whi le they wait for their Digital Subscriber Lines (DSL) to be turned-on. "Instant-On" is integrated into BASCOM's flagship connectivity solution, IQ2 NetConnect, which provides universal Internet access (from dial-up to broadband), a pre-configured firewall and a Web cache system for optimum performance. IQ2 NetConnect is remotely administered and upgraded, making it a hassle-free "drop-in, turn-on" solution ideal for small business. Now, through "Instant-On," IQ2 NetConnect offers both immediate productivity benefits and an easy migration path to DSL."

"To the extent that high-speed Internet access levels the playing field for small and big business, DSL represents a real opportunity to aggressive, dynamic companies looking for a competitive advantage. As the DSL roll-out continues erratically, our "Instant-On" technology gives small business bigger bang for their existing bandwidth, while providing them with the infrastructure to immediately leverage the benefits of DSL as soon as it becomes available," said BASCOM President Peter Cirasole. "From an ISPs standpoint, the IQ2's "Instant-On" feature delivers value as soon as it's plugged in. Our Value Added ISP program enables ISPs to evolve their business models by broadening their service offerings and customer base, while increasing the value of their company."
