Teleglobe International deploys Larscom's NxE1 ATM inverse multiplexer.

SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 13, 1997--Larscom Inc. (NASDAQ:LARS) today announced that Teleglobe International Corp., the global carrier unit of Teleglobe Inc. (NYSE:TGO), has selected and deployed Larscom's Orion 4000 broadband access platform with Larscom's NxE1 ATM inverse multiplexer module (IMUX/E1-A45) in its network backbone.

Having successfully beta tested Larscom's new ATM imux, Teleglobe is able to offer its customers a cost-effective, worldwide ATM service for voice, data and video traffic.

Deborah Soon, president and chief executive officer of Larscom, commented, "Our customers, especially the network service providers, were looking for a way to link ATM islands across geographical areas where ATM service is not available or is too expensive. The IMUX/E1-A45 ATM inverse multiplexer should present multinational NSPs with greater opportunities in foreign markets."

"Larscom's NxE1 ATM imux provides us with the solution we need to transport ATM traffic between the U.S. and Europe," commented Stephen Lee, manager of Broadband Development for Teleglobe International Corp.

"Because using E3 circuits to connect the U.S., Canada, and several European countries is cost-prohibitive, we were looking for a way of inverse multiplexing ATM traffic across multiple E1 lines between cities, and Larscom's Orion 4000 serves as an ideal solution. "We have deployed the IMUX/E1-A45 between London and New York, and as the network grows and customer requirements dictate, other cities and locations will be added."

The IMUX/E1-A45 connects to any standard ATM DS3 UNI on a switch, router or other ATM device, and transports the ATM cellstream over up to eight E1 lines, providing an effective alternative to unavailable or cost-prohibitive E3 circuits. The IMUX/E1-A45 is ideal for interconnecting ATM islands and extending ATM trunks trans-ocean or trans-continent. It supports all traffic classes and Qualities of Service, including CBR, VBR, UBR, ABR, and AAL1-AAL5.

Larscom's Orion 4000 broadband access platform is based on a unique bus architecture that handles both cell (ATM) and circuit (TDM) traffic simultaneously, making it ideal for hybrid networking environments or migration from one architecture to another.

The product's inverse multiplexing capability enables customers to join multiple, inexpensive T1/E1 lines to provide fractional T3/E3 or ATM bandwidth, making it a cost-effective solution for broadband networking. The contract with Teleglobe International was initiated and managed by Canadian distributors Wandel & Goltermann Inc.
