PROTEON WINS THREE TOP NETWORKING INDUSTRY AWARDS; TOKEN RING NETWORK INTERFACE CARDS, BRIDGING ROUTERS, FDDI BACKBONE TECHNOLOGY CITED

 WESTBOROUGH, Mass., Feb. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Proteon, Inc. (NASDAQ-NMS: PTON), a leading provider of networking and internetworking solutions for the entire business enterprise, has recently captured three significant industry product performance awards. They include:
 -- A "Tester's Choice" award from Data Communications magazine for Proteon's p1982 Token Ring Network Interface Cards (NICs) for the IBM PS/2 MicroChannel Architecture (MCA);
 -- A "Readers Choice" award from LAN Times magazine for the company's FDDI/backbone technology;
 -- An internetworking "Hot Products" award from Data Communications magazine for Proteon's DNX 300m Bridging Router.
 Proteon's Network Interface Card was the top performer among eight competitors in a test to determine how well the latest 16-Mbit/s token ring adapters can deliver the throughput needed by today's high- performance enterprise applications.
 Instead of using the standard "bit-blaster" approach (counting how quickly adapters can blast short frames of data onto a network), the test was based on a new benchmark that included LU6.2 (IBM's peer-to- peer protocol), OS/2 2.0 with Version 1.0 of Extended Services. A total of 50 Mbytes of data were shunted between applications running on a pair of 486-based PCs. The trials were conducted by InterLAB of Sea Girt, N.J., a highly respected independent testing facility.
 The LAN times magazine survey was conducted among the magazine's 128,300 subscribers. The award cited Proteon's outstanding FDDI architecture in its RISC-based CNX 500 bridging router that delivers the industry's most compact high-performance backbones. Proteon released the industry's first FDDI ANSI X3T9.5-compliant router back in 1991.
 The DNX 300m Bridging Router was selected best among more than a dozen routers that have recently been introduced to connect small, remote offices to the corporate backbone. In building the test category, Data Communications specified products that were developed with remote sites in mind, particularly since these satellite offices lack the technical expertise found at headquarters. The test regimen also focused on products with plug-and-play characteristics. The DNX 300 supports Token Ring or Ethernet and can be configured for both local and remote routing. It can be used standalone or integrated with Proteon's Series 90 Intelligent Network Concentrator.
 "We believe these awards are significant because product integrity, reliability and functionality are the critical elements in any network," said Patrick Courtin, president and chief executive officer. "Customers want and should expect products that meet their mission critical needs every hour of every day."
 From large corporate headquarters' sites to smaller more remote locations, Proteon delivers scalable, flexible and highly-available enterprise-wide network solutions.
 At the desktop, its ProNET 4/16 family of Token Ring Adapter cards guarantees interoperability for all LAN environments. Its powerful CNX- RISC-base router and Series 90 Token Ring/Ethernet Smart Hubs help enterprises build reliable, high-performance headquarters networks.
 Proteon's ProNET BOSS hub/router and award winning DNX 300 family of bridging routers provide the industry's most cost-effective, easy to maintain branch office connectivity. Finally, the entire network can be easily and comprehensively managed from a single workstation via Proteon's SNMP-based OneVIEW Network Management system. The system can also manage third-party SNMP device as well.
