PROTEON BEGINS SHIPPING CNX 600, NEXT GENERATION HEADQUARTERS ROUTER

 WESTBOROUGH, Mass., May 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Proteon, Inc. (NASDAQ: PTON), today announced it has begun shipping the Corporate Network eXchange (CNX) 600, its newest high-end, dual-processor RISC- based router. The CNX 600 is designed to provide the advanced performance, high reliability, high capacity and sophisticated features essential for building and expanding advanced enterprise-wide networks.
 According to Dale Whitney, president of NetImage, a major New England-based systems integrator, "Our Fortune 200 customers demand solutions that combine advanced manageability and control with the power and performance to drive mission-critical, large-scale networks. The CNX 600 is generating quite a bit of excitement in these end user environments, both for its sophistication and practicality."
 The CNX 600 rounds out Proteon's internetworking product line, which also includes the CNX 500 router for regional and smaller corporate sites, the award-winning DNX 300 router, the ProNET BOSS (Branch Office SolutionS) remote site hub, and the p4100 router.
 The CNX 600 is shipping with Release 13 software, which includes Proteon's internetworking Traffic Management (PITM). PITM is a breakthrough in software technology that guarantees availability for mission-critical SNA traffic in networks mixing IBM and non-IBM traffic.
 PITM delivers significant advantages over the SNA prioritization schemes common to the internetworking industry because for the first time it enables the allocation of WAN bandwidth for specific traffic types, as well as specific protocol prioritization or applications from the central headquarters site. PITM becomes essential in highly- congested networks because it provides in-band manageability during times when it's needed most.
 The CNX 600 also delivers a range of powerful features that enable users to tie large networks together with centralized management capabilities, including:
 -- Expansion for a second RISC processor that provides a nearly two- fold increase over the single processor speed of 45,000 packets-per- second, and higher redundancy;
 -- Support for up to 20 networks with Quad WAN and LAN cards;
 -- Support for expanded network capacity through migration to
 emerging networking technologies such as ISDN, ATM, and T3/HSSI;
 -- Integrated Boot Device (IBD) utilizing credit card size Flash
 memory for cost-effective remote and regional-site software
 maintenance;
 -- Internal modem for central site MIS departments to obtain
 diagnostics and other information out-of-band.
 Patrick Courtin, Proteon president and chief executive officer, said, "The wide-scale market acceptance of the CNX 600 reinforces Proteon's ability to deliver the most advanced, affordable and practical internetworking solutions."
 Proteon delivers networking and internetworking solutions that provide customers with reliable networks for diverse, multi-protocol mixed IBM and non-IBM computing environments. Spanning the enterprise, Proteon's products are specifically designed to meet the needs of headquarters, remote-site and wide area networks. Proteon's product family includes multi-protocol bridging routers, Token Ring and Ethernet intelligent hubs, Token Ring network adapters and integrated network management.
