CABLE & WIRELESS ANNOUNCES HIGH-SPEED X.25 PORT SERVICE

 /ADVANCE/ VIENNA, Va., March 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Cable & Wireless Communications, Inc. (CWC) has announced it will offer high-speed X.25 ports operating at 128, 192 and 258 Kbps as a new feature of its Managed Data Service beginning in June.
 According to Gabe Battista, CWC's chief operating officer, the new service was developed in response to growing demand for LAN interconnect customers who require faster speeds than the typical 56 Kbps X.25 port. The service will provide a migration path to LAN Connect frame relay service for X.25 customers.
 "Some internetworking users with requirements to connect to X.25 public databases have had difficulty accessing these databases from frame relay networks," said Battista. "High-speed X.25 ports will allow these customers to interconnect LANs at higher speeds and simultaneously access public X.25 databases without passing through a network gateway."
 Customers who use high-speed X.25 ports will be able to access CWC's network through T1 loops. These loops can be used for integrated voice and data applications through CWC's Uni-T access service.
 Cable & Wireless Communications, Inc., is a subsidiary of Cable & Wireless plc (NYSE: CWP), a multinational telecommunications organization with operations in 51 countries. The company provides a comprehensive range of switched, private line and managed data communications services via an all-digital fiber optic network which stretches from coast to coast.
