Eicon Networks Announces V.34 Fax Broadcaster Program

Fast V.34 Speeds Available to Fax Broadcasters With Special Discounts on Diva Server V.34 Digital Fax Cards Through Alliance Systems

MONTREAL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 30, 2005 -- Eicon Networks Corporation ("Eicon"), a global leader in providing high quality communication products for networked business applications, announced today its new Diva Server Fax Broadcaster Program through Alliance Systems (www.alliancesystems.com), a leading value added distributor and systems integrator. The program is targeted towards fax broadcasters who wish to upgrade their infrastructure to take advantage of a 66% increase in speed of sending faxes using V.34, resulting in faster fax transmissions, increased server capacity, and higher profitability. Most fax broadcasters can achieve an ROI in less then seven months by upgrading their PC server and fax card infrastructure by choosing Eicon's Diva Server.

Today, over 25% of the fax market uses V.34 fax machines and this is increasing daily as new fax machines will provide full support for V.34. The fax market has been running with the V.17 standard which provides 14.4 kbps speed, where the V.34 standard provides for 33.6 kbps. Diva Server allows fax broadcasters to place 8 T1 boards into a server machine which reduces expensive server footprint and provides increased savings on purchasing new servers.

Ease of installation is assured as all Diva Server adapters conform to plug-and-play standards, eliminating the need to manually configure your server. Diva Server adapters can be used with all state-of-the-art operating systems, offering drivers for both Microsoft Windows and Linux. Diva Server drivers for Windows are officially certified by the Windows Hardware Quality Labs (WHQL).

Handling millions of faxes per day, the Diva Server 24M is market tested and proven for fax broadcasters. The Diva Server Fax Broadcaster program provides special pricing for fax broadcasters who purchase 25 or more and even deeper discounts for those broadcasters purchasing over 200 Diva Server adapters.
