SAMSUNG Introduces the Industry's First Complete Line of True Dual-Speed Ethernet Products

DALLAS, USA - March 3, 1998 - The Networks division of Samsung Telecommunications America (STA) today introduced their SmartEther 10/100Mbps product line, the industry's first complete line of true dual-speed Ethernet NWay products. The SmartEther 10/100Mbps line of stackable, scalable products offers customers flexible operation, effortless migration, and ease-of-use at a value unprecedented in the industry.

Samsung's new product line, which includes dual-speed hubs, switches, and adapters, provides a cost-effective way for users with 10Mbps Ethernet and 100Mbps Fast Ethernet bandwidth needs to co-exist within the same workgroup.

Samsung is the first in the industry to introduce such a variety of 10/100Mbps shared, stackable hubs -- 4, 8, 16, and 24 ports -- to accommodate the needs of virtually any size network. In the past, only those that could afford switches could gain the benefits of dual-speed products. The cost-effectiveness of Samsung's 10/100Mbps hubs now makes dual-speed technology accessible to almost any budget.

"For the past ten years, 10Mbps Ethernet has been the undisputed industry standard. Now that Samsung has introduced a full line of true 10/100Mbps products, network managers at any size business can make an easy and affordable transition to Fast Ethernet,7quot; said Mark Stubbe, vice president of the Networks division. "Our new dual-speed products provide auto-negotiation features on all ports, making it easy for businesses to future-proof their networks." The complete line of SmartEther 10/100Mbps products can now be purchased from resellers and distributors worldwide. In selected markets, Samsung will back up this dual-speed line with a 90-day satisfaction guarantee policy, as well as a lifetime warranty on adapters and a three-year warranty on hubs and switches.
