NEWBRIDGE TO SUPPLY NETWORKING PRODUCTS FOR FNA INTERNATIONAL NETWORK

 OTTAWA, March 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Newbridge Networks (NASDAQ-NMS: NNCXF) announced today that the company has been selected by FNA, a financial network association, to supply products to allow the construction and network management of the FNA global financial network. FNA, a strategic alliance of 12 of the world's leading telecommunications companies, was created to provide unified communications services between the major financial centers of the world.
 "It is a significant achievement that Newbridge, a Canadian developer of networking products, has been chosen to supply the network hardware and network management products to manage the prestigious international FNA network", commented Terry Matthews, Newbridge chairman. "The network management capabilities of the Newbridge 4602 Mainstream(R) software will allow FNA member companies to provide unique international service offerings to financial institutions around the world. I am also pleased that a number of telephone administrations will become new users of MainStreet products as a result of their participation in this network."
 "The FNA network, being global in scope, is extensive and complex", commented David Bland, FNA General Manager. "The MainStreet portfolio of products is distinguished in the marketplace for its ability to manage this level of complexity elegantly and with a high standard of performance. The 4602 MainStreet network manager allows centralized global management and independent territorial management to occur simultaneously. The Newbridge products, in short, offer the best solution to our exacting and unique specifications."
 The Newbridge 3600 MainStreet Bandwidth Manager family of products and the 4602 MainStreet network management software are already widely utilized by some FNA member companies in their networks around the world while others have newly adopted MainStreet products for FNA services. The 4602 MainStreet Intelligent NetworkStation (TM) was chosen as the network manager for this strategic financial network because of its proven capability to effectively manage large strategic networks on a global scale. Newbridge MainStreet products are ideally suited to the FNA network because they conform to all international standards and provide centralized network management capabilities.
 Network construction and testing is expected to be completed by June of this year, with customer trials and service to follow. The master network database will be maintained at the Stentor National Data Network Control center in Ottawa while additional 4602 MainStreet Intelligent NetworkStation products, from which the entire network can be viewed and controlled, will be located in the country of each member company. This will allow an FNA member to organize services for a customer between any or all FNA network countries. Only the Newbridge 4602 MainStreet network management software offers this ability.
 Newbridge Networks is an international company which designs, manufactures, markets and services multimedia, standards-based networking products for global LAN and WAN applications, all manageable by a single, graphically rich network management system. Facilities are located in Canada, the United States, Europe and Asia.
