Electronic Frontier Ltd (EFL) have announced the release of a new ISDN Terminal Adapter featuring an LCD display and a built-in V.90/56K high-speed modem. The ZyXEL LCD+M offers home users and Small to Medium Enterprises (SMEs) unprecedented value - priced at £239 (excl. VAT) it offers outstanding features and performance for the price of many standard terminal adaptors. It will be available from February 1999.

Designed for fast Internet and Intranet access; The LCD+M is ideal for high speed web browsing and fast downloading of multimedia files, e-mail and other data over ISDN. With the integrated V.90/56K modem, it can also communicate with other analogue modems to receive and send data via the ISDN line. The combination of these features makes the LCD+M a formidable communications tool for the SoHo and SME marketplaces.

High performance - with great ease of use:
The LCD+M can be installed easily within minutes, with the help of ZyXEL's ISDN TA Configuration Manager. The suite of ISDN Application software (RCS-COM Lite) provides powerful features for complete communications management. The LCD+M’s Basic Rate ISDN Interface provides 2 channels of 64kbps which can be used separately or combined using MultiLink-PPP to form a 128Kbps 'pipe'. It also offers two analogue ports, which allow simultaneous use of two analogue devices such as telephones, modems and fax machines. For example, users may send e-mail while talking on the phone or browse the web while sending a fax. This makes the combination of a ZyXEL LCD+M and an ISDN line a highly cost-effective alternative to installing two analogue lines. Features include a 460.8kbps DTE serial port, which removes bottlenecks and allows users to make full use of the STAC Data Compression which typically compresses text data at a ratio of 5:1. An LCD display enables users to see the number of the incoming caller, monitor the call progress and check the call history.

Bandwidth On Demand automatically manages traffic by adding or dropping the second channel as needed. The LCD+M also incorporates an auto answer facility, call bumping, caller ID and offers three levels of dial back security to protect information. A Multi - Auto answer feature automatically detects and accepts incoming calls for PPP, V120 and V110, freeing users from manual protocol set up.

Users set to benefit as ISDN market grows:
Commenting on the release of the LCD+M Gary Stevens, Sales Manager for EFL said "the release of the LCD+M is very significant in terms of price vs. performance. ZyXEL have produced a unit which offers two powerful devices in one box and, at a price of £239, which means that users can now really benefit from the technology available today".

With regard to the development of the ISDN market in the UK Stevens commented "In light of BT's installation charges having been reduced from £199 to £99, we believe that ISDN is becoming the standard method for business communication. With the release of products such as the LCD+M we foresee this trend continuing, especially in the home user and SME markets"

The LCD+M is available from selected retail outlets and off the page resellers. Contact EFL on 0118 981 0600 for details of nearest stockist.
