I don't want the chip, but I'd like to know a few things.
1. How much of a secure telephone does it contain?
a. voice A/D/A?
b. modem A/D/A DSP?
c. Keyboard multiplex?
d. control microprocessor?
e. Encryption section?
2. Is there any indication that NT+T has worked with any other
manufacturers to design some sort of inter-telephone negotiation standard,
one that would allow the kind of inter-compatibility that modems have today?
