 SIEMENS STROMBERG-CARLSON, BELL ATLANTIC TO DEMONSTRATE
 LIVE EWSM CELL SWITCHING SYSTEM
 BOCA RATON, Fla., May 18 /PRNewswire/ -- The first live Switched Multimegabit Data Service (SMDS) offering will be demonstrated by Bell Atlantic via the Siemens Stromberg-Carlson EWSM Cell Switching System during INTEROP '92 Spring. The show will be held May 18-22, 1992, in Washington, D.C.
 According to John Seazholtz, Bell Atlantic vice president of Network Technologies, "This is the company's first use of high-speed switched data services to meet the real application needs of an on- line customer.
 The Siemens Stromberg-Carlson EWSM is a high-performance cell switching system capable of switching data at speeds of up to 140 Mb/s today, with upgrade capability of 155 Mb/s in the near future. Operating over Bell Atlantic's network, it enables customers to use graphic imaging services. Network management and control of the EWSM system will be handled from a Bell of PA facility in Philadelphia.
 A number of other SMDS applications will also be demonstrated in the BA booth during INTEROP '92 Spring, including Siemens Medical Systems' LiteBox, a medical imaging workstation, Novell Local Area Network, and IBM SNA Network, as well as text, graphics and image document applications that show multi-vendor interoperability. Applications demonstrated at the show will include interactive document preparation and publishing, high-resolution transport of medical images, and other high-speed data communications services.
 "What this hookup really demonstrates," said Fred Fromm, Siemens Stromberg-Carlson senior vice president of sales, "is the ease and efficiency with which the EWSM system can be deployed as witnessed by Bell Atlantic's establishment of live connections between the show in Washington, D.C. and real customers in Philadelphia." Long-distance and Local Exchange Carriers can just as easily respond to the needs of a customer by offering either frame relay service or SMDS over the EWSM cell switching backbone.
 Siemens Stromberg-Carlson EWSM systems are in operation or in field trial with several carriers, including both long-distance and local service providers.
 Bell Atlantic Corporation, based in Philadelphia, is the parent company of New Jersey Bell, Bell of Pennsylvania, Diamond State Telephone (Delaware), and the Chesapeake and Potomac Telephone Companies of Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, and Washington, D.C.
 Siemens Stromberg-Carlson provides telephone operating companies with advanced, high-quality public telecommunications networks. The company designs, develops and manufactures central office digital switching systems, packet switching systems and transmission equipment. Based in Boca Raton, the company has manufacturing and other functional groups in Lake Mary, Fla. and Albuquerque, N.M.
