 SPECTRUM ONE NETWORK FOR WIRELESS DATA COLLECTION
 BOHEMIA, N.Y., Aug. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Symbol Technologies, Inc (NYSE: SBL), the world leader in bar code-based data capture systems, today announced it is supplying its Spectrum One wireless data communications network with its Laser Radio Terminal (LRT 3800) to Toys 'R' Us (NYSE: TOY), the world's largest toy retailer.
 LRT 3800 units and Spectrum One networks are being installed in 54 of the 497 U.S. Toys 'R' Us stores. The LRT 3800 combines Symbol's Spectrum One wireless spread spectrum radio frequency data communications technology with the company's bar code scanning and portable computer capabilities in a single, integrated hand-held unit.
 Toys 'R' Us initially is using the LRT 3800 and Spectrum One network for shelf tag labeling. Store managers access store computer price look- up files with the LRT 3800 by scanning an item's bar code and communicating with the store host computer via the Spectrum One radio to verify or change item pricing.
 "We are working closely with Toys 'R' Us to implement this robust radio frequency technology which enhances productivity and customer service through real-time data transaction capabilities," Raymond Martino, president, Symbol Technologies, said. "Our relationship with Toys 'R' Us dates back to 1987 and we're happy to be part of the long- term Toys 'R' Us commitment to quality service through technology."
 Toys 'R Us is the world's largest toy specialty retailing chain currently operating 497 store in the United States, 131 international toys stores and 203 Kids 'R' Us children's clothing stores.
 Symbol Technologies is the world leader in bar code based data capture systems with nearly two million scanners and terminals installed. The company designs, manufactures and markets bar code reading equipment, portable data terminals and radio frequency data communications products which are used as strategic building blocks in technology systems for retail, manufacturing, package and parcel delivery, warehousing and distribution, health care and other industries.
