Correcting...Retransmission Business Booms for Airtime Following New Gandalf Resale Agreement.

NEPEAN, ONTARIO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 4, 1997--GANDALF TECHNOLOGIES (NASDAQ GANDF, TSE GAN ) A recent agreement to resell Gandalf Digital Communications Ltd. hardware has boosted sales for thriving Internet Service Provider (ISP) Airtime Resources Ltd.

Airtime, based in Blackburn, UK, elected to offer a complete turnkey package to its business customers, including the latest Gandalf edge devices. The total solution offered by Airtime can include account access, domain registration, e-mail provision, web site development and even full PC networks.

Brian Welsby, managing director, Airtime, commented, "We've definitely noticed a growth in business since we started using and reselling Gandalf products - it's given us a high quality, reliable system. As a result, sales have flourished with new customers and also in developments with existing customers. Airtime has a customer base of around 600 businesses and now predicts a further 250 customers by the end of 1997."

"Following a review of our former supplier US Robotics, we chose to replace them with Gandalf. Their products are well-designed and robust, the back-up support and finally the company's history of providing quality service led us to this decision," Brian Welsby continued.

Airtime takes its backbone feed from Pipex and uses Gandalf's Xpressway Central 11 chassis with dual Primary Rate Interface (PRI) sockets, 30 Modem Resource Modules (MRM) and 60 ISDN channels, which has the ability to be quadrupled in capacity.

Paul Brandwood, Gandalf's director of sales for service providers (EMEA), commented, "It is clearly a new and lucrative direction that Airtime has adopted, and Gandalf is at the forefront of changes within the Internet Service Provision sector and develops its products accordingly. We were confident that the Gandalf systems would perform favorably, and Airtime has confirmed this. Gandalf invests heavily in customer service, which is an important consideration for Internet Service Providers specializing in business customers."

Gandalf's vision is to provide people with access to information through technology. Gandalf provides leading solutions in network infrastructure by connecting remote locations to central resources and designing and supplying high-speed backbones for data, video and voice transmission. These offerings provide customers significant strategic advantage in today's competitive world.

Gandalf markets its range of communications solutions in 75 countries through four distinct operational groups: North America Group; Asia Pacific Group; Europe, Middle East and Africa Group; and Northern Europe Group. Subsidiaries of Gandalf Technologies Inc. include Gandalf Canada Ltd.; Gandalf Systems Corporation in the US; Gandalf Digital Communications Limited in the UK; Gandalf Nederland BV; Gandalf SA in France; and Gandalf International Limited.
