 SPRINT/PREMIER INTRODUCE NEW WAVE OF WIRELESS PHONES
 INTO THE MARKETPLACE
 KANSAS CITY, Mo., May 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Sprint (NYSE: FON) today ushers in a new generation of phone systems for companies with business strategies that depend on accessibility and mobility.
 Premier Microcel, the first digital wireless key telephone system, is a business communications solution designed to break through the barriers to a more productive and mobile work environment.
 Microcel's state-of-the-art digital radio technology offers high- quality wireless communication that is both secure and reliable. It functions as a wireless key system and can operate as a stand-alone system or behind a PBX or Centrex -- providing communications capabilities that are fully integrated with other internal and external telecommunications facilities. The portable handsets are easy to use, and offer multi-line access, a liquid crystal display and the most popular business phone features, such as conferencing, paging, redialing, and speed dialing.
 The system is a technically advanced product which incorporates innovations in several areas. Patents have been awarded on key portions of the radio design, the digital format and the encrypted security scheme.
 "Blending digital and wireless technology is a first in this industry segment," explained Steve McMahon, president of Premier, "and its results for business customers will be far-reaching -- from increased productivity to decreased expense and more flexibility for growing businesses.
 "In addition, Microcel provides superb digital audio, unmatched by cordless or cellular phones. It has no exposed antennas, it's secured from unauthorized access, and it's modular, upgradeable, and installable by the user. Because it's wireless, it's fully portable and can go anywhere in the office with the user, and office moves are easier, with no phone wiring to change."
 Sprint offers Premier Microcel exclusively through North Supply, a Sprint complementary business and the nation's largest distributor of telecommunications products. Premier Telecom Products, Inc., a North Supply subsidiary, develops telecommunications products which are available through the market channels served by North Supply.
 Sprint is a diversified international telecommunications company with $8.8 billion in annual revenues and the United States' only nationwide all-digital, fiber-optic network. Its divisions provide global long distance voice, data and video products and services, and local telephone services to more than 4 million subscriber lines in 17 states.
