Short Take: PC-Tel boosts DSL modems

PC-Tel is offering software-based DSL modems that support the upcoming G.Lite standard for consumer friendly DSL modems in addition to regular 56kbps dial-up service. LiteSpeed modems rely on the PC's main processor to enable communications capabilities. One version will be completely software based, while another will use an "accelerator" chip for use with low-end PCs. Samples will be available in late Q3 1999, with production scheduled for Q4.
