N.E.T. Promina ATM Access Certified By Deutsche Telekom For ATM Services


FREMONT, Calif., March 29, 1999 - N.E.T. (NYSE: NWK) today announced that the N.E.T.™ Promina™ 800 Series Multiservice Access Platform has been certified for ATM internetworking by Deutsche Telekom AG. N.E.T. is one of the first vendors to have customer premise equipment certified for use with Deutsche Telekom's T-NET ATM services offered throughout Germany.

Deutsche Telekom currently offers managed network services to numerous clients using more than 150 N.E.T. multiservice access systems throughout Germany. The certification of the N.E.T. CellXpress™ adds flexibility to the decision-making process for clients and prospects of Deutsche Telekom.

N.E.T. customers can now take advantage of the N.E.T. CellXpress ATM access module for E3 (34Mbit/s) and E1 (2 Mbit/s) connections to T-NET ATM services offered by Deutsche Telekom. This means that N.E.T. Promina 800 Series customers selecting the internal CellXpress module will have the option to send voice, data and video over Deutsche Telekom T-NET ATM services. The result is flexibility in planning for growth, changes in network configurations and selection of applications.

Deutsche Telekom has performed extensive testing with the Promina 800 CellXpress module at Deutsche Telekom's ROLAND lab in Wiesbaden, Germany. The ROLAND lab is at the moment the only European testlab that performs testing against Standards defined by the ATM Forum, ITU-T and ISO in accordance to Deutsche Telekom T-Net ATM.

"Conforming to ATM standards and adhering to them is the key issue in the ROLAND Lab," said Dipl.-Ing. Kurt Grosse, managing director, Development Group, ROLAND Lab. "As the certification center for Deutsche Telekom, we believe that it is in the best interests of Deutsche Telekom customers and vendors alike."

"Deutsche Telekom has an excellent ATM network capability and we are pleased that the N.E.T. Promina multiservice line has been certified by Deutsche Telekom for immediate use," said Craig Forbes, director, Multiservice Access Platforms, N.E.T. "The Promina 800 line is an excellent match with Deutsche Telekom's T-NET ATM service. Promina network managers can leverage value-added services of Promina 800 Series networks such as PrimeVoice™ voice compression, ISDN signaling and PanaVue™ network management by tunneling traffic through the Deutsche Telekom T-NET ATM network for the combined benefit of cost-effective and flexible services."

The Promina 800 Series family of Multiservice Access Platforms equipped with the internal CellXpress ATM module performs ATM adaptation and aggregation. The Promina systems also provide frame relay to ATM interworking based on Frame Relay Forum standards, and support for constant bit rate and variable bit rate (CBR/VBR) traffic with Class of Service support.. When used in conjunction with the Deutsche Telekom ATM service, traffic from the Promina network can be transported over the ATM network and deposited on another portion of the Promina network while retaining the advanced functionality supported by Promina networks.

(N.E.T.), headquartered in Fremont, Calif., is a leading worldwide supplier of multiservice wide area networks used by enterprises, government organizations and carriers in more than 75 countries.
