           NEC CORPORATION BEGINS OPERATION OF ITS NEW OPEN
            SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGY CENTER IN THE UNITED STATES
    NEW YORK, Nov. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- After establishing the NEC Systems Laboratory's Open Systems Technology Center (OSTC) in Princeton, N.J. on April 5, NEC (NASDAQ: NIPNY) announced that it will begin regular business operations at the center today.
    At the new technology center, NEC will: 1) Participate in the codevelopment of future operating systems with UNIX System Laboratories, Inc. (USL), as well as the development of distributed computing technology; 2) Cooperate with software houses in the United States and provision of technical support to promote NEC's adoption of UNIX application software available in the United States for NEC's Workstation EWS4800 Series, Server Computer UP4800 and Fault Tolerant Computer FT20, and 3) Participate in organizations in the United States such as X/Open, X Consortium and Object Management Group (OMG) for the adoption of their standards by NEC products.
    "With the development of new trends in multivendoring and downsizing, the Open System will become even more important," says Akira Kobayashi, executive vice president of NEC Corporation.  "Established to examine the technology, market and standardization aspects of open systems, the Open Systems Technology Center will help NEC provide Open System based products to customers in a timely fashion.  For the time being, UNIX will be at the center of OSTC activities.  NEC believes the OSTC will become of strategic importance in the company's UNIX based computer business."
    There are 15 employees at the center and NEC plans to hire more staff locally.  The total number of employees will increase to about 50 by 1993.
    NEC Corporation established its subsidiary, NEC Systems Laboratory, Inc. in Boxborough, Massachusetts in 1977 to conduct research on computer systems.
    To meet current demands for open systematization, NEC believes it is important to gain the technological improvement of software for open systems such as UNIX and distributed computing systems.  Therefore, NEC has established the Open Systems Technology Center under NEC Systems Laboratory's umbrella to work closely with various organizations and software houses in the United States where technologies are far advanced.
    NEC established the center in Princeton, N.J. because there are many excellent software engineers in the area.  It is also near the headquarters of UNIX System Laboratories, Inc. and UNIX International.
    NEC believes that the activities of the Open System Technology Center will contribute to technology exchange between the United States and Japan.  Therefore, NEC plans for the gradual expansion of the center.
