CENTRAL SOYA SELECTS PROTEON AS TOKEN RING SOLUTIONS PROVIDER

 CENTRAL SOYA SELECTS PROTEON AS TOKEN RING SOLUTIONS PROVIDER
 WESTBOROUGH, Mass., May 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Proteon, Inc. (NASDAQ: PTON) today announced a major sales contract with Central Soya Company, Inc., one of the world's largest suppliers of soybean products. Proteon will supply Series 90 Intelligent Network Concentrators, Series 70 Intelligent Wire Centers, OneVIEW Infrastructure Manager and CNX 500 bridging routers. Proteon completed this contract with national value-added reseller, Information Decisions, Inc.
 Under the terms of the agreement, Proteon will supply connectivity solutions for their current facility and new facility. Later in 1992, Proteon will replace Central Soya's SNA network with token ring WANs. This is expected to achieve LAN to LAN to mainframe connectivity for corporate, group and plant locations.
 "We needed a vendor who could provide us with an integrated token ring solution," said Bernard Baker, telecommunications manager at Central Soya. "Proteon was able to address many of our connectivity needs -- from building our infrastructure in our new facility to seamlessly connecting our remote sites and managing it all from a single station."
 "Proteon is pleased to be working with Central Soya in connecting their corporate facilities," said Patrick Courtin, president and chief executive officer at Proteon, Inc. "Proteon offers its customers a complete, tightly integrated solution to help build the network infrastructure and the most competitive price/performance."
 Initially Central Soya's application called for the installation of fiber extended token rings with Series 70 intelligent Wire Centers at five plant locations. In their corporate facility, Proteon will connect the three main locations with token ring WAN connections over T1 lines using Proteon's RISC-based CNX 500 multi-protocol bridging routers and wiring with Series 90 Intelligent Network Concentrators over shielded twisted pair cable. The second phase of Central Soya's new connectivity strategy will entail linking locations with remote token ring WANs. OneVIEW infrastructure manager will enable Central Soya to manage headquarters and their remote sites from a single station.
 Central Soya, a Ferruzzi/Montedison company, is a leading international agribusiness concern marketing products to customers in more than 65 countries. The company's major businesses include soybean and canola processing, vegetable oil refining, the manufacture of soy proteins and lecithin, feed manufacturing and grain merchandising.

 Headquartered in Westborough, Mass., Proteon's blend of token ring and internetworking expertise enables the company to provide tightly integrated, high-performance physical network infrastructures.
