SAMSUNG Sends MagicLAN to the US

Samsung America Corporation, headquartered in Seoul, South Korea has teamed up with LanPAL AKOM Corporation of Bethel, CT to form a strategic alliance in the emerging WLAN market. Marketing activities in the US will begin on May 20, 1999. Samsung plans a full complement of IEEE 802.11 compliant products within its MagicLAN product group that will utilize Direct Sequencing Spread Spectrum (DSSS) modulation.
Samsung's MagicLAN technology does not require FCC licensing because it operates in the unlicensed bandwidth of 2.4 GHz. MagicLAN incorporates the Harris PRISMa radio chip set in its cards demonstrating Samsung's commitment to leading technology. The MagicLAN radio cards can be used to access corporate wired LANs or they can provide "instant" wireless networks between other computers that are using the radio cards. This completely wireless peer-to-peer setup also fulfils many of the SOHO market requirements.

MagicLAN is an ideal arrangement for computers to share modems and phone lines in the home or small office.

Wireless networking is now acknowledged as the networking technology designed to offer portability and increased accessibility to corporate networks and the internet. MagicLAN provides businesses, educational institutions, government agencies and other organizations a convenient, reliable and cost effective way to enhance or extend existing LAN's as well as the ability to create completely wireless LANs. Adherence to the IEEE 802.11 standard insures interoperability between compliant vendors.

MagicLAN will be marketed through a nationwide network of authorized dealers with the dealers being supported out of Samsung's Eastern/Western marketing offices, respectively (see below). Dealers are being recruited nationwide. Experienced LAN dealers and VARs are encouraged to make contact at one of the numbers below. End-users should also call for a dealer nearest them.
