and a T1/FT1 DSU/CSU in one package
APTOS, Calif., October 16, 1996 -- Engage
Communication ships the Advanced IP*Express-56/T1 The Advanced IP*Express-56/T1
is a TCP/IP WAN Router that combines a 56K DSU/CSU and a T1/FT1
DSU/CSU in one package. This products makes upgrading from a 56kbps
line to a T1 or Fractional T1 line a matter of cabling and software
reconfiguration of the router to the T1 interface.
"This product makes it possible for
our customers to start out with a 56k line and have the built-in
support for T1 there for the inevitible demand for increased bandwidth."
says Engage Vice President Tom Ver Ploeg "Since the majority
of the configuration involves IP addressing, reconfiguration for
T1/FT1 can be done in minutes with Telnet or EngageView."
Engage has two WAN product offerings: the
Advanced IP*Express and the Advanced ExpressRouter. The Advanced
ExpressRouter routes TCP/IP, IPX, and AppleTalk. The Advanced IP*Express
only routes TCP/IP. Both products have auto-sensing 10 BaseT and
Thinnet Ethernet interfaces and support Frame Relay, Point to Point
Protocol, SNMP and Telnet.
Each product ships with EngageView management software for Windows
3.x/95, and MacOS. Telnet templates, that provide for edit and paste
configuration of the most common configurations, are also included.

56k and T1/FracT1 DSU/CSUs has a list price of $1,995.-- The Advanced
ExpressRouter-56/T1 with a single integrated T1/FracT1 DSU/CSU has
