MAX Internet Communications and NEC USA, Inc. Form Strategic Alliance to Offer Secure Solution for Multimedia Applications

Apr 11, 2001, 01:00 ET from MAX Internet Communications Inc. and NEC USA, Inc.

    DALLAS, April 11 /PRNewswire/ -- MAX Internet Communications
 (OTC Bulletin Board:   MXIP), a provider of solutions for accelerated video
 communications over the Internet, and NEC USA, Inc. (NEC) recognized as a
 leader in high technology, announced today a strategic alliance for the
 purpose of offering a secure, affordable solution for streaming media,
 videoconferencing, and multicast applications.  NEC's e-Border software,
 offered by its Networking Systems Laboratory, offers a unique, high level
 security software product that works with firewalls to protect a network as it
 evolves and allows secure communication across an intranet, extranet and the
 Internet.  When utilized in conjunction with the enhanced interactive video
 applications offered by MAX Internet, network users have easy access to
 multimedia applications with complete network security.
     The Internet has opened powerful avenues of multimedia communications
 between any organization or business and its employees, partners, vendors and
 customers worldwide.  However, unless a company has access to its own private
 digital network, these exciting audio and video applications cannot be used
 with privacy and security.  Traditional security appliances, such as Firewalls
 and Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) fail to meet the needs for existing and
 emerging Internet applications.
     NEC's e-Border software enables instant, seamless deployment for Internet
 technologies and multimedia applications, such as those offered by MAX
 Internet Communications, across secure networks.  Together, corporate and
 enterprise users can take advantage of the tremendous opportunities and cost
 savings associated with advanced video applications without sacrificing
 privacy and security.
     "Through its alliance with MAX Internet, NEC looks forward to integrating
 e-Border security solutions with MAX Internet's applications to make secure
 multimedia communications over any IP network environment a reality," stated
 Dr.Takao Hoshi, Senior Vice President, NEC USA Networking Systems Laboratory.
 "NEC's e-Border software provides security unmatched by existing firewall and
 VPN security technologies."
