CeBIT 2002: FRITZ! in New Version 3.03 - FRITZ! Increases ISDN Convenience and Security: AVM Software with Dialing Blacklist and Fax-to-Mail
Berlin/Hanover (ots) - The new Version 3.03 of AVM's ISDN software
FRITZ! makes its debut at this year's CeBIT fair. FRITZ! now opens up
new dimensions in the use of ISDN services with fax-to-mail and
voice-to-mail capabilities. Convenient functions such as FRITZ!web's
time schedule for Internet provider dial-up and automatic number
configuration simplify both system configuration and day-to-day use
of the software. In the new version AVM also responds to the demand
for more control and security with an integrated dialing blacklist
for the PC. The German version FRITZ! 3.03 will be available to all
registered customers as a free download during the second quarter of
2002. International versions will follow. The new version can be seen
for the first time at AVM's CeBIT exhibit, Hall 13, Stand C48.
Receive Communications Everywhere with Fax-to-Mail and
Everyone knows the problem: you're on vacation, but you don't want
to miss an important fax or phone call at home. The new Version 3.03
of the FRITZ! ISDN software now provides the solution: fax-to-mail
and voice-to-mail allow users to check from any Internet access
whether important communications have arrived. Faxes or voice
messages received on the PC at home can be automatically forwarded to
any e-mail address desired, and picked up from any Internet café.
FRITZ! simply converts the fax or voice files into e-mail attachments
and sends them to the specified address.
ISDN Still More Simple and Convenient
The ISDN connection monitor contained in the FRITZ! software has
been further developed into an important building block of simple
ISDN use. Now all the ISDN programs installed can be launched quickly
and conveniently from the ISDNWatch icon. Furthermore, the program
automatically detects the multiple subscriber numbers assigned to the
ISDN line by the network operator. This makes installation simple,
even for newcomers to ISDN. In the new version, individual software
settings are gathered together in a central location. This option
provides not only a clearer command of the current configuration, but
also simplifies the adjustment of custom settings. With BlueFRITZ! or
FRITZ!Card DSL, ISDNWatch also provides information on the quality of
the Bluetooth or DSL connection.
Dialing Blacklist for More Security
The new FRITZ! version fulfills a wish expressed by many users:
specified incoming and outgoing numbers can now be blocked. Users can
thus be automatically prohibited from dialing and from receiving
calls from individual numbers and whole number blocks. This feature
can be used for example to block overseas, long-distance or
premium-rate service numbers. In this way FRITZ! now provides
extensive protection against premium-rate dialers that use Windows
Dial-Up Networking to call expensive services, driving phone bills
sky-high. These settings can also be password-protected so that they
cannot be changed or deactivated by unauthorized persons.
Just Surf - Economically with FRITZ!web
FRITZ!web is the PC's quick and simple connection to the Internet.
In the new version, Internet access can now be controlled by a time
schedule. Create a type schedule by specifying the most economical
Internet provider for any time of day and day of the week. ISDN users
can then enjoy economical surfing with complete simplicity. AVM
recommends choosing providers who support Fast Internet over ISDN.
Enabled at the provider end, this ISDN data compression technique can
increase the throughput rate to as much as 240 kbit/s. For a
selection of providers supporting Fast Internet over ISDN, see AVM's
web page at www.avm.de/FastInternet.
