NEWBRIDGE INSTALLS INTERNATIONAL NETWORK FOR APPLIED BIOSYSTEMS

 NEWBRIDGE INSTALLS INTERNATIONAL NETWORK FOR APPLIED BIOSYSTEMS
 HERNDON, Va., Sept. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Newbridge Networks announced today that the company has completed installation of an international network for Applied Biosystems (NASDAQ-NMS: ABIO) of Foster City, Calif. The wide area network will carry voice, ethernet, async data and group 3 Fax traffic, and utilizes Newbridge 3600 MainStreet Bandwidth Manager and 3612 MainStreet Narrow Band Multiplexer products. The network is managed by a Newbridge 4602 MainStreet Intelligent NetworkStation in the United States and a Newbridge 4601A MainStreet network manager in the United Kingdom.
 In addition to the increased performance and cost savings for transporting data, the network has been so effective in providing substantial savings on voice traffic to Europe that plans are already being considered to increase the number of voice circuits. The network has also been successful in expanding the Applied Biosystems local area network (LAN) to all of its main international sites. Employees can now share LAN resources (electronic mail, printing, file server access) between countries.
 The domestic portion of the network is centered in Foster City, south of San Francisco, and connects to San Jose, Calif. The European gateway is at Warrington in the United Kingdom and extends the network into France, Germany and Holland. The second phase has been completed and adds a connection between Foster City and Tokyo. A third phase, just approved and scheduled for November this year, will link the Toronto office with Foster City, and the network will then be completed with the addition of a node in Milan, Italy, in March 1993.
 "We are extremely pleased with the expanded capabilities provided by this new network," commented Nick Warhol, head of MIS Computer Operations at Applied Biosystems. "We are particularly impressed with the level of service we received throughout the installation in Europe from both Newbridge and their international distributors. We look forward to a continued productive relationship with Newbridge."
 "Applied Biosystems is a model network and we are happy for the opportunity to demonstrate, once again, our international networking capabilities," commented Mike Pascoe, Newbridge U.S. president.
