Apr 16, 2001, 01:00 ET from Telseon

    DENVER, April 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Telseon, the leading provider of
 instantly scalable optical networks, announced today its inclusion in the
 Red Herring 100, the top 100 public and private companies selected by the
 editors of Red Herring, the leading magazine of business technology and
 innovation.
     The Red Herring 100 recognizes companies whose services, business models
 and products define business innovation.  It represents leaders of tomorrow in
 more than a dozen sectors, including software, biotechnology, wireless,
 communications services, and business and financial services.
     "This award validates that we are leading the industry in solving the
 metropolitan bandwidth bottleneck and offering our customers measurable value
 through our Gigabit Ethernet services," said John Kane, chief executive
 officer at Telseon.  "We are honored to receive this recognition from a
 prestigious group that has been carefully reporting on the Internet since its
 inception."
     In its fifth year, the Red Herring 100 has become the most sought-after
 list of its kind.  The editors of Red Herring compile the list from subjective
 and metrical data favored by venture capitalists and investment
 bankers--insights that predict a company's ability to overturn existing
 markets or create entirely new ones.
     The list, featured in the May 2001 issue and on Red Herring's website
 www.redherring.com, includes highly relevant information including the
 company's strategy, execution, products and services, brand, finances and
 competition.  Joining the world's most influential thought leaders in finance,
 technology and business innovation, the Red Herring 100 will be recognized at
 Venture 2001, Red Herring's annual invitation-only summit to be held
 April 29 through May 1, 2001 at the Resort at Squaw Creek, Lake Tahoe, CA.
