Voice Europe ‘99, Stand 351, Grand Hall, Olympia, London, UK, 3 November, 1999 - Brooktrout
Technology today announced support for the Linux operating system on their TR114 Series
intelligent fax and voice boards. Developers who have chosen Linux as their development
platform now have the option of developing on Brooktrout Technology’s platforms to build
enhanced fax and messaging applications.

"Our support for Linux is proof of Brooktrout Technology’s commitment to addressing the needs
of the rapidly growing Linux community, which is taking hold in both the service provider and
enterprise marketplaces," said Jeff Sieloff, vice president of Marketing, IP & Fax Division,
Brooktrout Technology. "By providing continuing support for a variety of operating systems,
Brooktrout Technology allows developers to choose the best operating system for their
application requirements."

TR114 Series

Approved in more than 30 countries worldwide, Brooktrout Technology’s TR114 intelligent fax
boards reduce fax transmission expenses up to 60 percent versus Class 1 and Class 2 modems.
This is achieved through advanced features, including MMR compression, T.434 binary file
transfer capability, on board fax processing and high speed transmission. Brooktrout
Technology intelligent fax boards also have superior interoperability with fax machines
globally. Due to a robust implementation of the T.30 protocol, a Brooktrout Technology-based
LAN fax server will easily connect and transmit to a much wider variety of fax machines than
competitive solutions.


For the TR114, Linux support will be available in September 1999 via Brooktrout Technology’s
BFV API 4.2. Brooktrout Technology plans to add Linux support in the near future to
additional products including its Netaccess intelligent WAN Access cards, TR1000 boards, and
selected legacy voice cards such as RDSP Series products. For more information, contact
