RSA Highlights 56Kbps Soft Modem Technology

Employing advanced RISC processors, NMT eliminates the need for modem hardware in small environments.
"Once the V.90 standard is officially ratified--currently expected this fall--we will release an upgrade for NMT with full V.90 support," said Munther Qubain, president and CEO of RSA Communications. "We are firm supporters of standards-based modem technology, and intend to support all relevant communications standards for our NMT solution."
Currently there are two competing 56Kbps standards: Rockwell Semiconductor's K56flex and 3Com's x2 technology. The International Telecommunications Union (ITU) issued the draft V.90 standard for 56K communications in January.
At the Windows CE Conference, RSA is using Hitachi's SH-3 RISC engine to demonstrate NMT's 56Kbps capabilities.
