 NOVELL'S NEW MESSAGING SYSTEM SOFTWARE
 EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn., May 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Digi International Inc.'s (NASDAQ: DGII) DigiBoard division has introduced support for Novell's recently announced NetWare Global Messaging server, a messaging integration platform implemented on the NetWare 3.11 network operating system. The DigiBoard connectivity solution is a combination of software and a DigiCHANNEL asynchronous communication board, both of which reside on a Novell NetWare file server.
 The DigiBoard solution can provide a single NetWare file server with multiple connections for modems or printers. With the DigiBoard solution, a NetWare Global Messaging server can support up to eight asynchronous connections. The printers and modems can also share two or more Novell products, assuming those products utilize Novell's Asynchronous Input/Output (AIO) specification. This provides the NetWare environment with a single point of control through which all asynchronous communication services can be accessed. By "pooling" all ports on the file server, the cost of supporting multiple asynchronous applications on a network is dramatically reduced.
 "By supporting our new NetWare Global Messaging system, DigiBoard is providing NetWare customers with large numbers of users the best price/performance asynchronous communication adapter yet for their asynchronous network communications needs," said Carey Heckman, director of Messaging Product Marketing for Novell, Inc., Sunnyvale, Calif. According to IDC (International Data Corp.), network messaging is the fastest growing segment of the messaging market. With a compound annual growth of 219 percent, network messaging users will number 36.2 million by 1994 (a).
 "As the leader in providing asynchronous communication boards with a reputation for compatibility and reliability, we have worked closely with Novell and can provide leading edge performance to this rapidly growing market," said Mike Moroz, president and chief executive officer of Digi International.
 Headquartered in suburban Minneapolis, Digi International Inc. is a leading provider of data communications hardware and software products that permit microcomputers to function as multiuser systems in a variety of operating system environments. The company produces these communications subsystems under the DigiBoard and Arnet trade names for the rapidly growing multiuser microcomputer connectivity market.
