DIGI INTERNATIONAL SUBSIDIARY RECEIVES TENNESSEE QUALITY AWARD

 MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Arnet Corporation, Nashville, a wholly owned subsidiary of Digi International (NASDAQ: DGII) has been awarded one of Tennessee's first Quality Awards. The Tennessee Quality Awards are designed as a service provided to Tennessee businesses, organizations and institutions--large and small--who wish to dedicate their efforts to improving the quality of the services and goods they deliver. The award was presented by Gov. Ned McWherter and the board of directors of the Tennessee Quality Awards Committee at a ceremony in Nashville.
 The Tennessee Quality Awards are designed to recognize organizational achievement in three separate stages. Applications submitted by public or privately held organizations in the state of Tennessee were reviewed by a team of examiners against a set of standard criteria. Applications addressed seven examination categories including Leadership; Information and Analysis; Strategic Quality Planning; Human Resource Development; Management of Process Quality; Quality and Operational Results; and Customer Focus and Satisfaction. While consistent in form to the Malcolm Baldridge National Quality Award, the state criteria were simplified and described in steps of less complexity to promote greater participation.
 Arnet Corporation manufactures and markets a broad line of highly reliable communications solutions for multiuser systems, local area networks (LANs) and wide area networks (WANs). It markets its products through an international network of major distributors and directly to OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers), master VARs (value added resellers), systems integrators and VARs.
 Digi International is a leading provider of data communications hardware and software products. The company produces these communications subsystems under the DigiBoard, Arnet and Star Gate tradenames for the microcomputer-based multiuser and networked systems market. Digi International has recently been ranked on the best small companies lists by Forbes and Business Week magazines.
