draw attendees to ComNet/DC

WASHINGTON, DC, FEB. 8, 1999 Reinforcing its reputation as the show
for enterprise networking communications, this year's ComNet/DC 99
saw the launch of more than 300 new products, served as a platform
for first-of-its kind conference programs and hosted keynote speakers
presenting the Internet and its role in the changing face of
telecommunications.

Nearly 50,000 attendees flooded ComNet/DC held Jan. 25 28 at the
Washington, DC Convention Center and Washington, DC Renaissance
Hotel. ComNet annually brings together leading edge companies from
the rapidly converging networking and communications industries.

And as it does every year, the show provided a platform to showcase
cutting edge technologies that promise to remake the communications
and networking landscapes. Of the 420 companies that exhibited at
ComNet/DC more than 300 introduced new products and services. More
than a third of the exhibitors participated in the prestigious New

Communications, with a new product, MetroFusion Network.

"Not only is ComNet the showcase for new and emerging technologies in
enterprise networking communications, it is also the place for
industry representatives to get in-depth training on the technology
behind the products and services," said Debra Hart, ComNet show
director for IDG Expo Management Company, producers of the show.
"This year, we introduced to great acclaim a new conference program
designed specifically for senior executives who increasingly rely on
enterprise networking communications to drive their business. And we
were proud that our conference attendees could earn Continuing
Education Credits through a unique relationship with George
Washington University."

"ComNet was a GREAT show. We continue to have more success at ComNet
than any other event we attend as an exhibitor. " said Maureen Walsh,
mar com specialist, of Baltimore- based IRE. "The quality of
attendees is very high and we always come back with more leads than
any other show." Among the other highlights of this year's show:
