AMERITECH TO INSTALL SIEMENS STROMBERG-CARLSON EWSD IN METRO CHICAGO

 BOCA RATON, Fla., April 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Siemens Stromberg-Carlson today announced it has reached agreement with Ameritech Network Services to install a 63,000-line EWSD(R) digital switching system at its Dorchester central office in metropolitan Chicago to serve the area around the University of Chicago.
 The Dorchester switch is the first Siemens Stromberg-Carlson central office switching system to be installed serving a major Ameritech metropolitan area, and will replace an analog system currently in place. Service is planned for the third quarter of 1993.
 The Siemens Stromberg-Carlson EWSD system will be equipped with the latest software releases, including National ISDN-1(A) and National ISDN-2, to provide businesses and residents served by the Dorchester central office with the most advanced voice and data services. The EWSD system will provide a full complement of advanced business telephone services, such as ISDN Centrex, which easily and flexibly links multiple locations and integrates features such as calling number identification.
 "Businesses and residents served by the Dorchester central office will now have access to a wide array of sophisticated telephone services that enhance the way they communicate and do business," said Daryl Eigen, regional vice president for Siemens Stromberg-Carlson. "Combined with our new line of customer premises equipment, the EWSD switch will enable metro Chicago businesses to enjoy the productivity benefits available from the very latest in telecommunications technology."
 Eigen said the Dorchester central office will also be equipped with AIN 0.1 capabilities and ISDN ACD, which will open up an even greater array of possible services.
 The Siemens Stromberg-Carlson EWSD is designed for modular growth and metropolitan switch applications, according to Eigen, so that it can easily expand to serve communication-intensive customers in densely populated metropolitan areas. The 63,000-line Dorchester switch will be the largest EWSD system installed in Ameritech territory.
 Siemens Stromberg-Carlson is the third-leading supplier of advanced telecommunications switching equipment to the Bell Operating Companies, designing, developing and manufacturing digital central office switching systems, broadband switching systems, packet switching systems and transmission equipment. Based in Boca Raton, the company has manufacturing and other functional groups in Lake Mary, Fla. It is part of the Siemens U.S. group of companies which had combined sales of $4.9 billion in fiscal year 91/92, with 35,000 employees at almost 400 sales and service locations and 70 manufacturing, assembly and engineering locations.
