Apr 24, 2001, 01:00 ET from Telseon

    MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., April 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Telseon, the leading
 provider of instantly scalable optical networks, today announced that its
 service promotion is successfully driving adoption of GigE services and
 populating metropolitan IP networks.  The "Connect Your World" promotion
 offers businesses a typical savings of $20,000* with a complimentary
 connection of up to 10 Mbps of bandwidth per month -- equivalent to 6 T1 lines
 -- through December 31, 2001.
     More than 40 new customers, ranging from applications service providers
 and multi-media content distributors to storage solutions experts and web
 hosting giants, have joined Telseon's network since the promotion began on
 March 12th. The new customers joining Telseon's established customer portfolio
 of more than 60 businesses include Coradiant, Core Fuzion, Listen.com,
 Internet Business Services and Senterprise.
     "We understand that in today's economy companies are cautiously
 approaching new technologies. Our promotion provides businesses with a
 risk-free opportunity to migrate to a GigE network," said Vesna Swartz, vice
 president of marketing at Telseon.  "Once on the Telseon network, customers
 will quickly realize lower bandwidth costs, shorter time-to-market, expanded
 customer reach and access to dozens of new revenue streams from other Telseon
 customers and partners."
     Telseon's GigE network is enabling businesses to create their own
 Ecosystem where they can quickly extend B2B connections to other businesses
 and share value-added services such as outsourced storage, video streaming, IP
 transport and voice over IP.  As more businesses with varied service offerings
 enter the ecosystem, its value grows exponentially to create a scalable
 network that is ideal for the delivery and exchange of bandwidth-intensive
 applications.
     "As one of the GigE service leaders, Telseon is showing that speed and
 simplicity of deployment are possible in the metro optical network.  That
 should be encouraging to service providers who need to extend their data
 networks. Telseon's current promotion should also encourage these SPs to
 exploit the 'network effect' created by connecting their businesses as well,"
 said George Peabody, Aberdeen Group, Vice President and Practice Manager,
 Communications Infrastructure and Services.  "Given the cost, it is a low-risk
 way to evaluate the ROI."
     "The Telseon network allows Coradiant and its customers to access the
 widest choice of bandwidth, storage, and site operation services within a
 metropolitan area, making it an important part of our growth as a leading
 managed service provider," said Alistair. A. Croll, CEO of Coradiant Inc.
     By using the utility of the Telseon GigE network, customers are able to
 take advantage of Telseon's web-based self-provisioning, bandwidth-on-demand
 and leak-proof security.  These technologies are designed to place network
 control in the hands of the customer.
     Businesses can view Telseon's Ecosystem participants via a Web directory
 categorizing all members by type of provider or type of service.  The
 easy-to-use search index provides vendor profiles, service descriptions,
 connection requirements, information request forms and contact information.
