TELCO SYSTEMS UNVEILS PLANS FOR HYPERNET FAMILY OF HIGH-PERFORMANCE PRODUCTS FOR THE LOCAL LOOP

 TELCO SYSTEMS UNVEILS PLANS FOR HYPERNET FAMILY
 OF HIGH-PERFORMANCE PRODUCTS FOR THE LOCAL LOOP
 NORWOOD, Mass., June 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Telco Systems' (NASDAQ: TELC) Fiber Optics Division today unveiled plans for HyperNet(tm), a world-class family of high-performance modular products that promise unparalleled flexibility for fiber optic transport and distribution of telecommunications traffic in the local loop.
 As part of the HyperNet product line, Telco Systems is developing HyperLynx(tm), next-generation multiplexers that combine Time Division Multiplexing (TDM) and Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) under a Synchronous Optical Network (SONET) umbrella. HyperLynx will enable provisioning of bandwidth to users in chunks of any size, from 1.544MB to 600MB, through plug-in application modules on one shelf. Along with other HyperNet products, it will enable consolidation of both ATM and TDM traffic into a moderate rate signal, then further consolidation into higher-rate signals for transport to the central office.
 "This is the first public announcement in the industry of a SONET product utilizing a high-speed bus architecture optimized for provisioning today's DS1 and DS3 as well as tomorrow's High Speed Frame Relay and ATM services in the local loop environment," said Paul D. Lazay, Ph.D., president and chief executive officer at Telco Systems, Inc. "HyperNet products will revolutionize the way local exchange carriers and organizations with large private networks handle transport and distribution of telecommunications traffic. These products will be the first in the local loop to enable carriers to provide customers with exactly the bandwidth they need when they need it, without laying a large 'pipe' to each user's doorstep. They have the potential of heralding in a whole new era of flexible tariffs."
 HyperNet products, scheduled to roll out within the next 18 months, will provide Telco Systems' customers with a clear migration path to ATM, Lazay said, and a way to upgrade their network cost-efficiently to provide such future services.
 "We're suggesting that customers take a long, hard look at what they're doing in their move to SONET and maybe not move quite so aggressively," Lazay said. "If they act too quickly, they could be ripping out existing SONET installations in a year or two or installing auxiliary shelves and doing workarounds to meet changing end-user needs. This will translate to wasted capital and unnecessary work. Both can be avoided with a product family like HyperNet." HyperNet's Modularity Key
 The modularity of HyperNet products will make them unlike any others in the local loop and will enable them to easily reconfigured and expanded as end-user requirements shift. HyperNet products will work side-by-side with previous-generation technologies in the local loop and handle narrowband, wideband and broadband applications through modules plugged into one shelf.
 Companies will be able to select various HyperNet high-speed modules to support OC-3 (150Mbps), OC-12 (622Mbps) or OC-48 (2.4Gbps) transport. They also will have the flexibility to change service interfaces to support any combination of low- and high-speed services from T1 and DS3 to future ATM-based multimedia applications.
 "A hallmark of Telco Systems is its ability to develop high-quality, flexible products that cope effectively with sudden unexpected network demands," Lazay said. "Traditionally, our technology has led the market for fiber optic products in the loop. Other vendors are just now introducing products that address applications we pioneered four years ago. This tradition of innovation is continuing with HyperNet." Third-Party Relationships
 Telco Systems is developing strategic alliances with third-party vendors who will build specialized applications modules for HyperNet to complement the core functionality Telco will introduce.
 These modules will support services such as next-generation DLC (Digital Loop Carrier) interfaces, video codecs for distance-learning applications of broadcast or near-broadcast quality, and high-speed data interfaces for FDDI, Ethernet and HSSI.
 Also, part of Telco Systems' longer-term objective is to incorporate support for Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH), the international standard equivalent of SONET.
 Telco Systems is headquartered in Norwood. The company has two operating divisions: Telco Systems Fiber Optics Division in Norwood and Telco Systems Network Access Division in Fremont, Calif. The Norwood- based division provides fiber optic transmission equipment to Bell operating companies, independent telephone companies, specialized common carriers and private network suppliers. The Fremont-based division manufactures and markets T1 access multiplexer systems to companies who use T1 services and those who offer T1 services: T1 backbone suppliers, distributors and service carriers.
