Summary
  • Microcom Inc introduces its $599 TravelCard Fast 28.8 PCMCIA modem. The product operates at 28.8 Kbps over ordinary dial-up lines. It targets users who access LAN databases or work with Windows-based applications remotely. Previously, users could only choose between clumsy 'portable' 28.8-Kbps modems or 14.4-Kbps V.32bis PCMCIA-compliant devices. BellSouth Corp has been beta testing the new TravelCard Fast 28.8 modem, and an executive explains that the phone company's sales force is engaged in a project that generates 1MB to 5MB of data each day for each mobile employee. Transmitting data at 14.4 Kbps would require more than 30 minutes for each salesperson, which is not acceptable. The TravelCard's higher transmission speed brings the time down to within a 15 to 20 minute maximum threshold.
