APTOS, Calif., May 1, 1997 -- Engage Communication ships the Advanced IP*Express*56/64, a TCP/IP WAN Router that supports Frame Relay or PPP connections and comes equipped with an integrated 56/64K CSU/DSU. The Advanced IP*Express*56/64 is a very cost effective solution for connecting organizations to the Internet or for Branch Office internetworking.

"The integration of the 56/64K CSU/DSU into the Advanced IP*Express product is primarily due to demand from Internet Service Providers that are connecting businesses to the Internet via Frame Relay with 64K DDS circuits." says Tom Ver Ploeg, Engage Vice President. "ISPs especially appreciate the ease of installation, reliability and support of our complete LAN to WAN solutions."

"The IP*Express*56/64 is one of the most cost-effective way that I have found to get a customer connected to the Internet with our 64k Frame Relay service." says Lorn Olsen, President mich.com Michigan 2nd largest private ISP. "Also, the ability to easily upgrade to a T1 connection provides us with a solution that grows with our customer's bandwidth demands."
