 NYNEX AND FUJITSU COMPLETE INSTALLATION OF WORLD'S FIRST
 SWITCHING SYSTEM WITH BOTH NARROWBAND AND ATM BROADBAND FABRICS
 RALEIGH, N.C., June 8 /PRNewswire/ -- NYNEX Science and Technology, Inc., and Fujitsu Network Switching of America have installed the world's first switching system capable of providing both broadband and narrowband services, the companies announced today. The switching system, which is capable of providing switched services from narrowband at 64 kilobits per second through a full range of broadband services up to 622 megabits per second, has been installed as part of a joint trial to be conducted by NYNEX and Fujitsu.
 Composed of both narrowband and ATM broadband switching fabrics and common processing technology, the switching system forms a single, multi-service platform for providing POTS, ISDN, Frame Relay, SMDS, and Broadband ISDN. It can switch voice communications, video exchanges and supercomputer data all at the same time.
 NYNEX Science & Technology has begun testing this most advanced version to date of Fujitsu's FETEX-150 All Bandwidth Switching System at the NYNEX applications development lab in Cambridge, Mass. Initially, broadband applications will be tested with the FETEX-150 system in the lab, using some of the applications developed by NYNEX Science & Technology over the past two years. The work will then be extended to applications trials using Fujitsu's newly available public network-grade switching equipment.
 "This is a significant milestone in our pioneering work to broaden our offerings of new, network-based services," said Tom Super, vice president-research & development of NYNEX Science and Technology.
 "End-users exposed to broadband applications developed through our lab work are unanimous in their endorsement of these new capabilities," Super said. "Trials using the FETEX-150 will allow us to demonstrate the potential that these applications hold for the public network at large."
 "NYNEX is leading the industry in showing end-users the benefits of broadband communications," said Fujitsu Network Switching of America Senior Vice President Ken Hovaldt. "Fujitsu is pleased to provide its leading technology to this effort joining network provider, technology provider and end-user together to achieve a common goal making the best possible services available to users over the public network."
 NYNEX Science & Technology plans to test voice, data, video, and high resolution image communications within the lab environment initially. These applications are being developed for use in the fields of medicine, manufacturing, engineering, advertising, video productions, and real estate.
 Fujitsu Network Switching of America is a subsidiary of Fujitsu Limited, a $25 billion global leader in integrated telecommunications systems, computers, and semiconductors. The FETEX-150 system, an advanced digital central office switching system with over 11 million lines in service or on order in 21 countries, is now prepared for U.S. network use providing a full range of narrowband and broadband services.
 NYNEX Science & Technology, Inc., is the research and development arm of NYNEX Corporation (NYSE: NYN), a leader in helping people communicate using information networks and services. Through New England Telephone, New York Telephone and NYNEX Mobile Communications, NYNEX provides telecommunications services to approximately 12 million customers.
