WAM!VAN Hits the Highway, Hauling Digital Connectivity
Beyond the hype of the big purple truck—which was hard to miss and even harder to visit with crowds packing it solid throughout the show—WAM!NET announced an entry-level ISDN enabler, ISDN On-Ramp, designed to unite 4-Sight and WAM!NET users—as promised when the two companies became one in March.
WAM!NET also announced a special promotional offer called Send Free in 99, which lets customers who sign an annual contract with WAM!NET by Dec. 31, 1998, send unlimited megabytes anywhere in the United States and Canada in 1999 via the WAM!NET network.
Also gaining attention at the show was WAM!NET's Transmission Manager software, which is based on 4-Sight's iSDN Manager. Transmission Manager, the application used for all WAM!NET digital connections, allows the user to send or receive files with the click of a mouse.
As for the WAM!VAN, the hulking purple semitrailer is WAM!NET's traveling exhibit, hitting the streets throughout North America to carry live demonstrations of digital connectivity, digital workflows and remote proofing applications, such as WAM!PROOF, to interested parties. If you see it on the highways, honk. You can't miss it.
