Pulsecom Pumps Out Multiple Destination DSL Service

Looking to meet the growing needs of the digital subscriber line (DSL) customer base, Pulsecom Inc. Tuesday began offering Dynamic Connect, a DSL service that can connect a user to multiple destinations.

Dynamic Connect is a software-based, user-initiated solution designed to access multiple service destinations including Internet service providers, online content providers and corporate networks. The strategy behind the technology is to make DSL service as easy to use as dial-up services.

Subscribers need not contact their ADSL provider each time they want to change destinations. Using Dynamic Connect's Web-based PC interface, they can point and click to switch among a variety of providers and networks.

Allowing subscribers to select their own service will add to the productivity of Pulscom's customers--content service providers, said Sassan Babaie, Pulsecom's vice president of marketing.

"The most important requirement for end users today is obtaining high-speed access to multiple providers and networks simultaneously without having to significantly change their PC or LAN environment," Babaie said.

"Dynamic Connect. . .delivers an interoperable, standards-based solution, something that is important to both Pulsecom's customer base of service and access providers and subscribers."

The software is part of the WavePacer Broadband DSL Solution, a complete end-to end ADSL system. It supports both full-rate ADSL and DSL Lite.

A single license supporting an unlimited number of end users is shipped at no additional charge with the WavePacer ADSL-8000 Modem, which is currently priced at $479.
