HARRIS CORPORATION AND AT&T ANNOUNCE NEW DIGITAL MICROWAVE RADIO

 MELBOURNE, Fla., July 8 /PRNewswire/ -- AT&T (NYSE: T) and Harris Corporation (NYSE: HRS) today announced a joint product development and marketing agreement for a new, high-capacity digital microwave radio system called MEGASTAR-2000.
 The marketing agreement allows Harris Farinon and AT&T Network Systems to jointly sell the MEGASTAR-2000 in North American markets.
 MEGASTAR-2000 will meet the evolving telecommunication needs of cellular telephone company and dedicated network customers, providing a combination of Harris Farinon's advanced, digital microwave radio transmission capabilities and AT&T's DDM-2000 network multiplexer SONET transmission technology. Because it incorporates lightwave transmission equipment that meets the SONET (synchronous optical network) industry- standard bandwidth specifications, MEGASTAR-2000 provides a high level of network survivability beyond that of current radio products.
 MEGASTAR-2000, which will be available in the fall of 1994, is a powerful 155 Mb/s radio. It is the newest, highest-capacity member of Harris Farinon's digital microwave radio systems and is an important addition to AT&T's DDM-2000 product family. MEGASTAR-2000 supports mixed fiber/radio networks as well as all-radio networks. Using AT&T's SONET technology, MEGASTAR-2000 is able to transport both North American asynchronous signals and/or SONET synchronous signals. This enables customers to extend existing networks or create new networks based on the standard of their choice.
 AT&T Network Systems is one of the world's largest manufacturers and providers of network telecommunications equipment. It offers communications service providers virtually everything they need to build and operate their networks. The Transmission Systems Business Unit of AT&T Network Systems was last year's winner of the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award, the nation's highest award for quality.
 Harris Farinon, headquartered in San Carlos, Calif., is part of Harris' Communications Sector. The division is the leading microwave supplier to the private, dedicated network market. It designs, manufactures, installs and services a broad range of analog and digital microwave radios and multiplex equipment for world markets. Its products provide communication networks for telephone and cellular companies; utilities and railroads; financial, industrial, and construction firms; military and government agencies; and broadcast stations.
 Harris Corporation, with worldwide sales of more than $3 billion, is focused on four major businesses: electronic systems, semiconductors, communications, and Lanier Worldwide office equipment.
