FORE SYSTEMS LOWERS PRICES ON ITS SBA-100 SUN ADAPTERS AGAIN

 PITTSBURGH, Aug. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- In an effort to continually offer lower cost ATM solutions to the broader market, Fore Systems, Inc., the worldwide market leader in ATM LAN products, today announced that effective immediately, prices of the ForeRunner(TM) SBA-100 ATM adapters for Sun SPARCstations have been reduced again.
 The latest price cuts offer customers the lowest priced fiber adapters in the industry -- including FDDI adapters. In March of 1993, the SBA-100 unit price was cut from $3,995 to $1,995 (U.S.) in quantities of six. The latest price reduction offers the adapters for $1,295 (U.S.) per adapter in quantities of 12.
 "Over the past 12 months," commented Mark Juliano, director of product marketing, "Fore has reduced the cost of ATM connectivity over 60 percent in its continuing efforts to offer ATM solutions to the broad market."
 Price reductions represent continuing cost reductions experienced by Fore as a result of large volume shipments as well as engineering cost reductions. To date, Fore has sold in excess of 900 ATM adapters to its customer base.
 This announcement comes on the heels of a price reduction on the ForeRunner ASX-100 16-port ATM switch made in June of this year. At that time, prices were reduced to $2,995/port (U.S.). Pricing on the 64-port ASX-100 SwitchCluster is currently $2,495/port (U.S.).
 Headquartered in Pittsburgh, Fore Systems is the worldwide ATM LAN market leader. Fore Systems develops, manufactures and markets ATM (Asynchronous Transfer Mode) LAN products that enable information-intensive organizations to build and manage networks for high-speed data and multimedia applications. To date, Fore Systems has shipped ATM solutions to over 125 customers worldwide, including Fortune 500 companies, computer and communications equipment suppliers, the U.S. government, major universities and domestic and international telecommunications service providers.
 Fore Systems' ATM products include the ForeRunner ASX-100 ATM LAN switch family and a full line of ATM workstation adapter cards for Sun, DEC, IBM, Silicon Graphics, Hewlett-Packard, NeXT, EISAbus and VMEbus computers.
