NEWBRIDGE LEAPS INTO NUMBER 1 SLOT IN WORLDWIDE T1/E1 MULTIPLEXER MARKET

 KANATA, Ontario, Nov. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Newbridge Networks Corporation (NASDAQ-NMS: NNCXF; TSE: NNC) announced today that the Company has been identified by Vertical Systems Group as the number one vendor in the 1993 worldwide T1 multiplexer market. Vertical Systems Group is a leading market research organization based in Dedham, Mass. The recently released figures show that Newbridge has captured 27 percent of the $817 million T1/E1 market, outdistancing its nearest competitor who is at 16.4 percent.
 "Our research shows that the Newbridge T1/E1 market penetration grew by 45 percent in 1993, while the entire market grew by only 8 percent," commented Rick Malone, principal at Vertical Systems Group.
 The Newbridge success has been attributed to the Company's early identification and exploitation of the trend for organizations to turn their networking requirements over to carriers. Newbridge has consistently demonstrated the ability to capture this emerging hybrid market with the development of a standards-based product line. This market now accounts for more than 65 percent of Newbridge networking revenues and many analysts believe that this sector will represent more than 50 percent of the overall market during the next three years. Last week the Company reported its tenth consecutive quarter of increasing revenues and earnings. These continued successes and growth demonstrate the deep mutual commitment between Newbridge and its carrier customers and the recognition by customers worldwide of the truly synergistic potential of this powerful combination.
 "We are pleased that the market has recognized the strategic importance of overlay networking and the role Newbridge is playing in pioneering this technology," commented Terry Matthews, Newbridge Chairman.
 Newbridge Networks is an international company which designs, manufactures, markets and services multimedia, standards-based networking products for global LAN and WAN applications, all manageable by a single, graphically rich network management system.
