[NPL] SkyLINE Wireless PC Card

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Macworld NY, Booth #1637

Farallon Announces SkyLINE(tm) Wireless PC Card for Cross-Platform
Networking; 802.11 Wireless Connectivity for Macintosh PowerBooks &
PC Notebooks

Macworld NY, Booth #1637, July 21st, 1999 - Farallon Communications,
Inc., developer of reliable, plug-and-play networking solutions for
Macs and PCs, introduces SkyLINE Wireless PC Card for portable
computers. Farallon's SkyLINE Wireless PC Card provides both
Macintosh PowerBook and PC notebook users 2Mbps access to network
resources such as file servers, email, printers and the Internet.

"SkyLINE eliminates the requirement to deploy structured wiring
everywhere," states Ken Haase, Director of Marketing, Farallon.
"Additionally, for roaming computer users such as on college campuses
where students go from building to building, wireless connectivity
means anytime, anywhere access to network resources."

Through IEEE 802.11 DSSS compatible access points from manufactures
such as Nokia (formerly InTalk), Lucent, Maxtech and Zoom, SkyLINE
users can connect to a wired Ethernet network. Additionally, SkyLINE
users can create an ad-hoc network between two or more portable
computers. A robust Control Panel provides a real-time signal
strength meter (Macintosh version), network statistics as well as
dynamic configuration, omitting the need to restart.

"I'm thrilled to see Farallon's entry into the wireless networking
market with both Apple PowerBook and Windows Notebook compatibility,"
exclaims Jason O'Grady of O'Grady's PowerPage. "As PowerBook users
are especially passionate and like to use them everywhere they go, I
expect wireless connectivity will revolutionize mobile computing."
