 NETWORK SYSTEMS' VITALINK ANNOUNCES HIPPI INTERFACE FOR DX ROUTERS
 SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- At the INTEROP Fall Conference here, Network Systems Corporation (NASDAQ-NMS: NSCO) and its subsidiary Vitalink announced an interface for its Data Exchange (DX) routers that provides a connection to the ANSI standard High Performance Parallel Interface (HIPPI), which defines an 800 Mbps channel. The interface, the PCHPI, can be used in a DX unit that also contains interfaces for Ethernet, FDDI and WANs up to T3/E3 speeds. This is the first time an internetworking vendor has included a HIPPI interface in a bridge-router.
 When used in conjunction with Network Systems' PS32 switch, the PCHPI interface and DX architecture permit high-performance resource and information sharing among disparate and widely separated environments. For example, up to 96 FDDI rings can be backboned on a PS32, or 96 T3 connections, using the PCHPI interface.
 Warren Pillsbury, vice president of Marketing for Network Systems, said that "This world-first capability now added to the DX-based routers extends our ability to integrate Ethernet, Token Ring and FDDI LANs into gigabit per second networks, enhancing the usefulness of all the connected systems. Users with visualization and RAID mass storage applications will benefit immediately from this capability."
 The PCHPI interface is available now. The price is $24,500.
 Network Systems, based in Minneapolis, is an industry leader in high-performance data communications systems.
