 INTERPHASE REDUCES PRICE FOR MARKET LEADING FDDI CONTROLLER AND
 ANNOUNCES LOWER COST CABLE OPTIONS FOR FDDI PRODUCT LINE
 DALLAS, Aug. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Interphase Corporation (NASDAQ-NMS: INPH), the world leader in FDDI (100 Megabit per second Fiber Distributed Data Interface networking) controller installations with 42 percent of the market, today announced price reductions for its top selling FDDI networking controller, and plans to introduce new lower cost copper cabling options for the company's full FDDI product line. With these announcements, Interphase builds on its efforts with other industry leaders to make high speed networking even more affordable for more users.
 With an immediate 20 percent list price reduction, the Interphase V/FDDI 4211 Peregrine networking controller for VMEbus systems is available at $8,795 for dual attachment and $6,995 for single attachment.
 Further, the Peregrine, and the full Interphase line of high performance FDDI controllers and fiberHUB FDDI concentrators will be available with the latest technology for transmission over copper wiring, both shielded and unshielded twisted pair.
 The original FDDI standard developed by ANSI specified only fiber optic cable as the media for data transmission in FDDI networking. However, many users voiced concerns that the cost of implementing fiber to the desktop was too expensive. In response, FDDI suppliers have been working to support the technology over alternate media.
 For transmission over shielded twisted pair, Interphase supports the "SDDI" implementation proposed in May by a group of companies headed by IBM. "Interphase was a pioneer in implementing FDDI over shielded twisted pair, and we demonstrated that capability in partnership with SynOptics at the Interop '90 trade show," said Vick Cox, Interphase FDDI Marketing Manager. "We're pleased that with SDDI, the technology has evolved further to a more widely accepted standard." SDDI-compliant interfaces are available for Interphase FDDI network controllers and concentrators.
 Transmission over unshielded data grade copper will conform to the MLT-3 encoding method, which was recently approved by the ANSI FDDI standard subcommittee. "As a member of the ANSI FDDI standards committees, Interphase backed MLT-3, and sees its approval as a positive step towards a standard for high speed networking over copper to the desktop," Cox said. "Interphase FDDI products have been designed so that they can support media other than fiber as the technologies become available."
 Interphase Corporation, based in Dallas, is a leading supplier of high performance open systems networking and mass storage controllers, software and standalone networking products. The company sells to computer OEMs, systems integrators, Value Added Resellers and end users through a worldwide sales network.
