Rim Semiconductor is developing semiconductor technology that allows
data to be transmitted at greater speeds over longer distances
using regular copper telephone wire.  This technology dramatically
increases the capacity
of the existing telephone network,
allowing telecommunications carriers around the globe to provide
enhanced voice, data, and video services over today's copper
infrastructure.  With this strategy, carriers can reduce or eliminate
the need to install fiber optic technology, reduce operating costs,
and increase revenue per line.
