HARRIS CORPORATION AND SHENZHEN TELECOM FORM JOINT VENTURE TO EXPAND PRESENCE IN CHINA'S TELECOMMUNICATIONS MARKET

 MELBOURNE, Fla./SHENZHEN, China, March 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Harris Corporation (NYSE: HRS) and Shenzhen Telecom Equipment Company (TEC) of the People's Republic of China have formed a joint venture to expand their presence in China's fast-growing telecommunications market.
 At a press conference today in Shenzhen, China, officials from Harris Farinon Division and TEC announced that they have established Shenzhen Harris Telecom Company Ltd. in an industrial park near the center of Shenzhen, located northwest of Hong Kong. The new company will include a manufacturing facility, together with sales and service support operations.
 Company officials said the joint venture will produce and sell Harris' low- and medium-capacity family of digital microwave radios and integrate them with other systems to provide complete telecommunication solutions.
 Harris Farinon radio systems are already in use in more than 100 countries throughout the world with extensive installations in China. The systems consist of microwave radio frequency transmitters and receivers that carry digitized voice, data and video via networks. These networks may span a few miles or extend over an entire country by using repeater sites.
 "China is embarking on a major modernization program to enhance its communications infrastructure and expand its reach beyond the major cities and into outlying areas," said Ricardo Diaz, vice president and general manager of Harris Farinon Division. "The new joint venture combines Harris' and TEC's technologies, capabilities, and resources to provide comprehensive solutions to China's unique telecommunication needs."
 Communication solutions involving laying miles of fiber or copper cable often prove difficult and expensive to implement in China due to the country's massive size and rough terrain. Microwave radios, such as those from Harris Farinon Division, have major appeal because they are cost-effective, easier to install, and offer high reliability.
 TEC is a Chinese, Shenzhen government-owned enterprise that designs, installs and services intelligent telecommunication networks using third-party equipment as well as its own manufactured products.
 Harris Farinon, headquartered in San Carlos, California, 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 main businesses: electronic systems, semiconductors, communications, and Lanier Worldwide office equipment.
