PROTEON RECEIVES X.25 CERTIFICATION FROM SPRINT; FOUR ROUTERS PASS RIGID NETWORK TEST SUITE FOR WAN TRAFFIC LINKS

 WESTBOROUGH, Mass., June 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Proteon, Inc., (NASDAQ: PTON), a leading provider of networking and internetworking solutions, today announced it has received X.25 certification from Sprint (NYSE: FON) for Proteon's complete line of routers.
 Granted after a rigid test regimen, the certification means all Proteon routers meet the technical specifications to route traffic over the widely used X.25 data communications standard. Sprint provides X.25 lines to major organizations across North America.
 Paul Toldalagi, vice president and general manager of Proteon's Internet Systems Division, said the certification assures users that router WAN links from Proteon address a wide range of X.25 characteristics such as link access procedure, framing, packet format, call establishment, maximum virtual circuits, default packet size, and default window size.
 "Many of Sprint's X.25 links carry an organization's mission- critical data," said Toldalagi. "From a user standpoint, it is vital that the routers they install in their networks meet all the necessary technical specifications. Proteon routers clearly meet these criteria."
 Sprint certified interface products include Proteon's Quad WAN X.25 card for the CNX 600 bridging router, a high-density, high-performance solution for headquarters connectivity with remote site management; the Quad WAN and Dual WAN X.25 cards for the CNX 500, a RISC-based, high performance 16Mbps backbone router with the industry's best price/performance point; and Dual WAN X.25 card for the DNX 300, a "plug 'n' play" bridging router for remote site connectivity. Certification is in process for Proteon's p4100+ bridging router. Proteon routers also support a wide range of other WAN standards including Frame Relay and speeds up to T1/E1.
