LOCATE TO INSTALL EWSD(R) IN LOWER MANHATTAN; COMPANY PROVIDES LOCAL TELEPHONE SERVICE IN NEW YORK'S FINANCIAL DISTRICT

 BOCA RATON, Fla., May 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Siemens Stromberg-Carlson today announced it has installed an EWSD digital switching system at LOCATE (Local Area Telecommunications, Inc.), a New York-based Competitive Access Provider.
 The EWSD switch, set to go into service later this month, is equipped with Siemens Stromberg-Carlson's Release 10.5 software, which provides centrex, National ISDN-1 compatibility as well as a broad range of custom calling services.
 "The growing trend toward competition in the local loop has been encouraged in New York by the state's Public Service Commission," said Kukie Chawla, vice president, Carrier Sales, Siemens Stromberg-Carlson. "In this growing and dynamic market for alternate access, we are pleased that LOCATE is the first Competitive Access Provider to install our EWSD system for enhanced switched services."
 The primary service area for the Siemens Stromberg-Carlson switch will be metropolitan New York City. LOCATE will market services primarily to business customers.
 "The cutover of the EWSD switch will allow us to offer a total service concept to our customers," said Hal Carey, senior vice president and general manager of LOCATE. "We already list many Fortune 500 and other major corporations among our customers for microwave service, and we can now offer them, as well as new customers, a competitive alternative for service in the local exchange."
 LOCATE, with headquarters in New York City, is the nation's leader in digital microwave service, providing high capacity, local distribution facilities for private networks and alternate access to interexchange carriers throughout the United States, as well as a full scope of microwave services (survey, design, installation, monitor, maintenance and service) to clients of all sizes. The company's Personal Communications Network Services of New York (PCNS-NY) subsidiary was one of the first companies to receive an experimental PCS license from the FCC. LOCATE has entered into a contract to purchase Metromedia Paging Services from Southwestern Bell Corp. The sale is expected to close later this year.
