 PROTEON UNVEILS HUB-BASED JITTERBUSTER DESIGN


FOR MAXIMUM PERFORMANCE, ECONOMY IN IEEE 802.5 TOKEN RING NETWORKS
 SANTA CLARA, Calif., Jan. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Proteon, Inc. (NASDAQ: PTON) today published a concentrator-based jitter reduction technology design that can provide both robust and cost-effective 16 megabit per second (Mbps) IEEE 802.5 token ring networking over unshielded twisted pair (UTP) wiring. The design, which incorporates JitterBuster technology in concentrators such as the Proteon series 90 token ring/Ethernet, FDDI smart hub, economically provides new levels of signalling stability for the IEEE 802.5 token ring standard.
 The design reconditions and regenerates signals in IEEE 802.5 token ring networks to provide greater reliability and design flexibility. This design enables standards-based UTP networks that cost-effectively support the full 250-node capacity specified by the standard, and effective network segmentation, or "firewalling," for mixed-media environments. Because it efficiently deploys state-of-the-art circuitry, the design can be economically incorporated in standards-compliant concentrators.
 "This standards-based technology is designed to cost-effectively provide every IEEE 802.5 token ring network -- including noisy and complex environments -- with access to the benefits of high-speed UTP networking: reliability, design flexibility and economy," according to Nate Kalowski, Proteon vice president of marketing.
 Proteon's JitterBuster technology stems from more than a decade's experience in providing the market with high-performance token ring and internetworking infrastructures designed for maximum network availability. The company is internationally recognized for its technical innovation and leadership in the development of key standards such as the IEEE 802.5 token ring standard and the ANSI X3T9.5 FDDI standard.
