Aliso Viejo, CA - The Wireless & Broadband Division of Smith Micro Software, Inc., a developer and marketer of a wide range of software and service solutions for the Internet market, today announced the introduction of QuickLink Fax 2000, the company's new wireless software program that allows cellular phone users to easily use their phone to send and receive faxes. The launch of QuickLink Fax 2000 is initially targeted at OEM cellular phone and accessory manufacturers as well as service providers. This innovative new wireless technology, in conjunction with the previously announced QuickLink Mobile 2000, eliminates the need for a PC modem and allows seamless fax communications directly from any cellular phone. The product is now commercially available and initial customer interest and response is encouraging.
"QuickLink Fax 2000 was developed as a companion to QuickLink Mobile 2000 to satisfy the ever increasing mobility requirements demanded by cellular phone users," said Rick Wyand, General Manager of Smith Micro Software's Wireless & Broadband Division. "We designed QuickLink Fax 2000 as an easy-to-use solution to extend mobile office functionality for cellular phone users."
QuickLink Fax 2000 installs on the PC with an easy-to-use wizard program and, when used, automatically detects the digital cellular phone being used as a modem as well as the wireless connection. QuickLink Fax 2000 also automatically optimizes the fax transmission for cellular protocols. To use QuickLink Fax 2000, users simply connect a cellular telephone to their laptop computer, dial the recipient's fax number from their laptop computer and the QuickLink Fax 2000 software transmits the document once the wireless connection is made. "We believe this simple but useful functionality will be particularly attractive to business users during meetings and to commuters wishing to transmit or receive documents while onboard trains or in automobiles," remarked Mr. Wyand.
"The combination of QuickLink Fax 2000 and our previously released QuickLink Mobile 2000 offers cellular phone users a powerful mobile platform that we are very excited about. Our goal is to continue to offer solutions that extend the freedom and convenience of wireless connectivity to PC users," said William W. Smith Jr., Smith Micro Software's President and Chief Executive Officer. "This new product expands our reach into the important wireless markets and extends Smith Micro Software's wireless technology focus. QuickLink Fax 2000 again brings the Smith Micro Software tradition of enhancing the customer's 'out-of-box experience' that is so critical to OEM manufacturers of wireless communications," concluded Smith.
