Zoom Begins Shipping the V3, Zoom’s Second Major VoIP Product

November 12, 2004


V3 provides VoIP and Data Networking to Cable and ADSL Modem Users

Zoom Technologies, Inc’s (NASDAQ: ZOOM) new V3 connects to the Ethernet port of a cable modem or ADSL modem, and includes a router, firewall with stateful packet inspection, 4-port switching hub, and TelePort VoIP port, which lets users make conventional telephone calls or VoIP calls from the same phone.

This provides a second phone line while allowing conventional phone service for 911 emergency dialing, toll-free number dialing, or in the event of a power failure, thus addressing the difficulty many consumers have with parting from their traditional, reliable and familiar telephone service.

The Zoom V3 allows users to use their own VoIP phone service, or can come bundled with Zoom’s Global Village phone service, which allows free VoIP calls over the Internet, and low cost calls to any phone on the conventional telephone network with both pay-per-call and unlimited-in-the-US calling plans.

Other features of the Zoom V3 include:

• Integrated Firewall with Stateful Packet Inspection and NAT (Network Address Translation)

• Integration of the voice processing with the firewall in the router, to ensure reliability of VoIP calls and reduce service provider support requirements

• SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) support, for VoIP calling and other communications over the Internet

• A browser-based graphic user interface

• Compatibility with any operating system that supports an Internet browser and Javascript, including Windows, Macintosh and Linux

• A 4-port Ethernet switching hub and a USB port, allowing up to five computers to plug directly into the V3

• Flash memory for easy firmware updates

• Multi-national, multi-lingual sales and support.

Zoom has been providing communications products since 1977, under the Zoom, Hayes and Global Village brands. Today it designs and produces VoIP products, ADSL modems, cable modems, dial-up modems, Bluetooth and other communications products in over forty countries, and provides multi-lingual support from its offices in Massachusetts, Florida, and the UK.
