Rockwell International Corp’s Seal Beach, California-based telecommunications division has launched the Integrated Communications System (Integrated Computer). It is made up of a data/fax/voice/audio modem and integrated communications software, and the company says that Integrated Computer has been designed to raise the level of personal computer modem productivity by providing a bridge between the desktop personal computer and the mobile communications user. The Windows-based system provides end-users with integrated data, facsimile, speech and business audio capabilities in a single application. According to Rockwell, Integrated Computer incorporates features of a digital telephone answering machine with automation via a personal computer; message forwarding; automated voice response; and business audio, with record and playback voice annotations in Windows applications. Rockwell has won the support of 20 communications hardware, software and service providers: the aim of the alliance, says Rockwell, is to bring together the technological and marketing powers of the supporting members and establish a minimum standard of performance as the emerging technologies of voice and audio communications converge with traditional personal computer communications. To date, members of the support group include America OnLine Inc; Antex Electronics Corp; Askey Computer Corp; Aspen Peripherals Inc; Best Data Products Inc; BIT Software Inc; Boca Research Inc; Cardinal Technologies Inc; Computer Peripherals Inc; Delrina Corp; First Byte Corp; Future Soft Engineering Inc; GVC Corp; MobileComm; Nuvo Corp of America; Practical Peripherals Inc; Smith Micro Software Inc; Tapmon Inc; Well Communications Corp; and Zoom Telephonics. With Integrated Computer, mobile professionals can keep in touch with their personal computer through any telephone system, and be automatically notified of incoming phone messages and faxes, says Rockwell. The system is available immediately, but there is no word yet on pricing.
