    KANATA, Ontario, Dec. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Newbridge Networks (NASDAQ: NNCXF) and Dynatech Communications, Inc. today announced that the Newbridge Fast(TM) Frame Relay Switch and the Newbridge 8230 MainStreet(R) Ethernet Bridge have been successfully tested for Frame Relay interoperability with the Dynatech CPX-10/CPX-20 high performance Packet Switches.
    The Newbridge and Dynatech products conform to the Frame Relay Forum standards which are evolving to ANSI and CCITT standards.
    The Newbridge FAST Frame Relay Switch operates in the 3600 MainStreet and 3645 MainStreet T-1/T-3 Bandwidth Managers.  It provides Frame Relay services for telephone companies or private networks.  The Newbridge 8230 MainStreet Ethernet Bridge is a compact, high-performance stand-alone learning bridge for Ethernet LANs.  It provides high-speed filtering and forwarding for local and remote Ethernet LAN-to-LAN connections.
    The Dynatech CPX-10/20 Packet Switches can be software configured to provide Frame Relay concentration or mixed Frame Relay and x.25 operation.
    The CPX Frame Relay products offer the highest performance in their class.  The high performance CPX-10/20 Frame Relay products can support line speeds up to 2.048 Mbit/s; the throughput exceeds 3000 packets per second with nodal delays of less than 1 millisecond.
    The CPX-10/20 Packet Switches are part of the Dynatech Packet Switching product family of PADs and Packet Switches; Frame Relay speed and functionality can be provided to existing customers through a simple software upgrade.  New customers benefit from the field-proven high performance CPX hardware platform.
