Dialout's SccIP Network Instantly IP-Enables Modem-Based Applications

Dialout.Net, Inc. announced the SccIP Network for modem-based communications. The SccIP (Serial Communications Convergence to Internet Protocol) Network and SccIP software modems replace costly fax/data hardware modems and telephone lines for a wide range of mission-critical business applications. By seamlessly migrating serial communications to software modems and Internet transport, the SccIP Network offers enterprises a future-proof solution for dial-out modem requirements.

"Virtually every industry segment still relies on modems for applications from credit card authorization to controlling pipelines," said Bill Flanagan, Principal Analyst for the Burton Group. "SccIP software modems allow a server to handle many times the number of hardware modems possible. And the SccIP Network brings the convenience and economics of the Internet to serial communications."

The SccIP Network transparently replaces desktop modems, modem pools, multi-modem adapters, intelligent fax modem boards - and immediately eliminates associated telephone lines. Examples of modem-based applications already using the SccIP Network include financial transactions, X.25 dial-up, data collection, remote PC control, out-of-band management, text messaging, desktop faxing, and fax broadcasting.

"The SccIP Network allows our global agents to avoid X.25 dial-up modem costs when conducting secure Internet-based money transfers using our modem-based applications," said David Albright, chief information officer at Travelers Express / MoneyGram. "SccIP modems solve the cost and reliability problems associated with conventional X.25 dial-up, especially in international locations. Using the SccIP Network for X.25 bypass has helped Travelers Express / MoneyGram move into countries where we might not have been able to otherwise compete effectively or profitably."

As an overlay on the public Internet, the SccIP Network securely carries serial data and fax communications without the need for customer-premise equipment or telephone services. Connections using the SccIP Network are available on demand and in effectively unlimited quantities. SccIP Network services are inherently more reliable than conventional modem solutions and come with superior web-based management and reporting capabilities.

"As businesses analyze their current network infrastructure in an effort to streamline costs, support new applications or take advantage of more efficient technologies, they should consider using SccIP Network services," said Ethan Allen, CEO of Dialout.Net, Inc., a SccIP Network service provider. "The SccIP Network offers compelling economic and functional advantages that quickly justify moving away from traditional hardware modem solutions to a software-based approach."
