MEGASYS COMPUTER TECHNOLOGIES SUPPLIES ALPHA AXP-BASED SOLUTIONS FOR TELECOMMUNICATIONS COMPANIES

 MAYNARD, Mass., Jan. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- MegaSys Computer Technologies of Calgary, Alberta, Canada has placed an initial order for more than two dozen DEC 3000 Model 400 and Model 500 AXP workstations to supply its process control solutions to the telecommunications industry.
 MegaSys' systems currently are being installed and will be used to monitor the telecommunications networks of US Sprint, a major U.S. telecommunications company, and Hyperion, a Pennsylvania-based nationwide competitive access provider. The MegaSys Alpha AXP workstation-based systems ensure that millions of phone calls get successfully routed through fiber optic networks across North America. The MegaDac software monitors voice quality and the operational status of a varied array of telecommunications equipment and configurations.
 MegaSys is a software engineering firm committed to the design of customized data management solutions including high-resolutiongraphics, real-time alarming systems, and high-speed database access. MegaSys designed its MegaDac solution as a powerful, flexible customized monitoring system for telecommunications companies that need rapid access to network alarm information. Using the X Window graphical user interface, MegaDac gives clients the power to graphically monitor and control alarms coming from field equipment for more efficient and effective network trouble-shooting.
 Porting MegaDac -- an OpenVMS-based application -- from a VAX platform to the Alpha AXP platform took only 60 man-hours to complete.
 "Network mo speed is everything," said MegaSys President Dave Woronuk. MegaSys selected the Alpha AXP architecture because of its performance and anticipated 25-year design life. "These factors, combined with the portability of our software design, will put us at least one year ahead of our competition," said Woronuk. "The fact that the Alpha AXP architecture can support the DEC OSF/1 operating system also is important, since most telecommunications companies have UNIX-based applications," he said.
 Digital Equipment Corporation, headquartered in Maynard, Mass., is the leading worldwide supplier of networked computer systems, software and services. Digital pioneered and leads the industry in interactive, distributed and multivendor computing. Digital and its business partners deliver the power to use the best integrated solutions - from desktop to data center - in open information environments.
