NETWORK SYSTEMS RECOMMENDED FOR ISO 9001 REGISTRATION

 MINNEAPOLIS, Dec. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Network Systems(R) Corporation (NASDAQ: NSCO) announced today that it has been recommended for registration to the ISO 9001 standard, the most stringent of the quality system standards of the International Organization for Standardization.
 The ISO 9001 standard is used to assess a company's quality system independent of the products or services it delivers. A team of assessors from the British Standards Institute (BSI) performed a four- day inspection of Network Systems' entire quality system, including documentation, organization structure, internal audit reports, design specifications and practices, manufacturing methods, service operations, and selected processes and procedures throughout the company. The assessors also interviewed individual employees ranging from assemblers to engineers to executives about the processes and procedures they use to assure quality.
 "The inspection focused on how we design, manufacture and service our products," said Lyle Altman, chairman of Network Systems. "Achieving ISO 9001 registration means that we have integrated quality awareness throughout the company. It is an integral part of the way we do business."
 David Huyink, director of quality systems for Network Systems, noted that "while other companies have chosen to register to the less stringent ISO 9002 standard, we chose ISO 9001 so that our engineering and service functions were included. ISO 9001 is not an end goal for Network Systems, but it is an important milestone on our path of continuous quality improvement, and it gives customers confidence in our ability to meet their requirements."
 Network Systems, founded in 1974 and based in Minneapolis, provides industry-leading networking solutions that integrate the host-based and LAN-based worlds of computing. Network Systems had annual revenues in 1992 of $219 million. The company, which has installed systems in more than 4,000 customer sites around the world, develops, manufactures, markets, and supports bridge-routers, channel extenders, CPU networking devices, host-LAN interconnect controllers, network-attached storage and backup solutions, and high-speed switches.
