The 8088 Smart DeskPhone is ideal for hospitality applications where the open APIs can be used to create customized capabilities and services like room automation and video concierge services.
The new 8088 Smart DeskPhone delivers the business case to boost video adoption in enterprises with its affordable price for small-to-medium and large businesses, its centralized IT management capabilities, and its integration into the Enterprise communications environment.
In the original PC the hardware used memory addresses that were 20 bits long.(3) Again, using 20 binary digits (bits) allowed the 8088 chip a grand total of 1,048,576 unique addresses.
While it is true that the new generation of microprocessors have removed the hardware restrictions that limited the 8088 to addressing 1 megabyte of RAM, the new chips still use software designed to be compatible with the 8088 chip.
Since we want our software to run on everything from a Pentium to an 8088, DOS and everything that runs under it must be written so that it remains compatible with all of these different microprocessors.
Of course, Windows 4.0 will not be compatible with any PC microprocessors that cannot use 32-bit addressing; consequently, the new version of Windows will not run on any 8088 or 80286 PCs.
Application programs designed to run under DOS were written in such a way that they could use only 640K of memory and not the 1 megabyte of RAM that the old 8088 chip could address.
For a start, extended memory cannot be used with the old 8088 or 8086 microprocessors.
