SCIENTIFIC-ATLANTA'S NETWORK SYSTEMS GROUP-ATLANTA RECEIVES ISO 9001 INTERNATIONAL QUALITY CERTIFICATION

 ATLANTA, June 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Scientific-Atlanta, Inc. (NYSE: SFA) today announced that its Network Systems Group-Atlanta (NSG) has received formal certification to the international quality standard ISO 9001 by the British Standards Institution (BSI).
 NSG-Atlanta includes both the Satellite Communications Division and Mobile Satellite Systems business unit.
 ISO 9001 is the emerging worldwide total quality standard set by the International Organization for Standardization, headquartered in Geneva. The standard, which has been adopted by more than 40 countries, establishes requirements for design, manufacture, installation and service activities. ISO 9001 has become an effective foundation for the Total Quality Management systems being established by many leading U.S. companies.
 "We have chosen to employ ISO standards throughout Scientific- Atlanta to achieve and maintain the highest quality products and services possible," said Scientific-Atlanta Chairman and CEO James V. Napier. "As a result, our customers can be confident that Scientific- Atlanta's products and business processes are based on continuous, quality-driven methods."
 Added Raymond D. Lucas, president of the Network Systems Group: "In addition to ISO certification demonstrating the quality of our products and services to our customers, it has also fostered internal teamwork among all departments. This team approach has resulted in the continuous improvement of workflow efficiency and employee cooperation."
 Network Systems Group-Atlanta received official registration through the Department of Trade and Industry in the United Kingdom. NSG-Atlanta is now recognized by the European Community, the European Free Trade Act countries and dozens of other countries throughout the world for its quality systems. Periodic audits will be conducted over the next three years by the BSI to ensure continued compliance with ISO 9001.
 NSG-Atlanta is the second group within Scientific-Atlanta to successfully meet the 20 elements of the ISO 9001 standard. The Electronic Systems Division (ESD), a unit of the company's Instrumentation Group, recently received official certification. ESD was certified by Det norske Veritas, a certification authority based in Holland.
 Scientific-Atlanta designs, engineers, manufactures, installs, tests and maintains satellite communications and cable television systems, and has provided 45,000 earth station systems to more than 135 countries. In the past 40 years, Scientific-Atlanta's technical leadership and extensive international expertise have earned the company a reputation as a premier turnkey satellite communications systems supplier.
 Scientific-Atlanta, Inc. is a world leader in broadband communications systems, cable television electronics, satellite-based communications networks, and instrumentation for industrial, government and telecommunications applications.
