Telebit/Cisco Agreement

As you may know, Telebit recently entered into an exciting new venture. Telebit Corporation will become a new, privately-held company, in conjunction with the acquisition by Cisco Systems, Inc. Under this agreement, Cisco will acquire Telebit's Modem ISDN Channel Aggregation (MICA) technology, and Telebit's management will buy out the company's remaining assets to form a new company. The agreement also includes a strategic technology alliance, by which Telebit will license MICA technology from Cisco for future product development.


It's important to note that although Cisco will acquire MICA, Telebit will still have the rights to use the technology in current and future products. Therefore, this means:

MicaBlazer and the MICA Granite Card for the NetBlazer are the first in a series of Telebit products to be based on MICA digital modem technology. In February, we plan to ship MICA for NetWare. Development efforts are also underway for MICA for NT, slated for shipment in Q3. Telebit will continue to develop MICA-based LAN server products as part of our WAN Interface Card (WIC) strategy. These Telebit products will be available through our traditional distribution and reseller channels. The newly-formed Telebit will expand its market presence in other areas of technology and continue its legacy as a technical innovator.

Telebit is very excited about the market opportunities that will arise from the MICA technology and the strategic relationship with Cisco, the largest internetworking company in the industry. In addition to providing us with access to MICA technology, this alliance provides Telebit with the best-of-breed engineering resources in future product development. We'll reap tremendous benefits by leveraging Cisco's MICA development efforts.
