Memorylink Unveils Flanger(TM) Real-Time Wireless T1 Line Alternative

ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill., Feb. 24, 2004 - MemoryLink, Corp., a wireless broadband technology innovator, today introduced Flanger(TM), a truly low-cost, highly reliable alternative to traditional T1 data transmission lines.

Flanger's public introduction, made at Broadband Wireless World 2004 in San Diego, means that Wi-Fi service providers, broadband carriers, enterprises and organizations with campus-like environments seeking advanced wireless bandwidth solutions now have a reliable yet low-cost remedy that enables point-to-point tunneling of T1 and E1 traffic across dedicated, point-to-point wireless Ethernet devices such as the Canopy(TM) Wireless Broadband platform from Motorola.

"Flanger provides the critical link in the foundation makeup of high-speed wireless networks," said Thomas A. Freeburg, MemoryLink chief operations officer. "With Flanger the delivery of all types of digital content - from data, voice and CD-quality audio to full-motion, high-quality video - is now possible in real time," Freeburg added.

MemoryLink designed Flanger with an array of cost reduction and reliability attributes that include:
· Dramatically reducing monthly multiple T1 and E1 leased line costs;
· Providing a path to unparalleled point-to-point T1 and E1 line reliability - all day, every day;
· Connecting PBX systems in remote office and campus environments;
· Replacing T1 or E1 connections to cellular towers, thereby improving reliability and eliminating monthly leased landline charges;
· Ensuring backward compatibility for maximum protection of legacy equipment investments;
· Reducing costs when used as a backhaul for digital cellular networks;
· Providing an ideal remedy for remote emergency/disaster recovery or special events that require an immediate bank of phones for portable cellular base stations.

Shapeware, MemoryLink's response to competitors' planned obsolescence, is an exclusive built-in design feature that can permit on-site reprogramming of Flanger and other MemoryLink products - giving users more control, more scalability, more flexibility and more value. A remote reprogramming capability will be added soon, offering users of MemoryLink's Flanger even greater savings as time - and technologies - advance.

Shapeware is the basic concept underlying the Malachi(TM) architecture, MemoryLink's exclusive approach to product innovation. With the Malachi architecture, hardware becomes mallable and is shaped to fit the problem. It is a shared understanding between hardware and software making it entirely reconfigurable so that each product can modify itself when the problem so demands. This means scalability with much greater dimensionality resulting in agile, interactive systems that shift the power from product to user. Like people growing wiser from age, education and experience, the Malachi architecture supports products that actually become "smarter" over time.

Since 1998, MemoryLink has excelled in technology development, video compression technologies, manufacturing and wireless communications, helping to connect people where they are and where they want to be as they discover the unbounded possibilities that wireless broadband offers for visual, audio and tactile communications. To this end, MemoryLink develops the most advanced integrated technology solutions for the transmission of high-quality, low-latency digital.
