Apr 18, 2001, 01:00 ET from Zolo Technologies, Inc.

    LOUISVILLE, Colo., April 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Zolo Technologies, Inc., an
 optical networking sub-systems developer and manufacturer, today announced the
 promotions of Dr. Pei Huang to director of focused research and development
 and Robert Harr to director of product development.  Dr. Huang and Harr are
 responsible for the successful development of Zolo's(TM) recently introduced
 Zmux(TM) multiplexer/demultiplexer products.  Both professionals will play
 strategic roles in the development of Zolo's next-generation integrated
 products, incorporating the company's proprietary Dense Wavelength Division
 Multiplexing (DWDM) free-space optics and grating technology.
     "Both Dr. Pei Huang and Robert Harr are highly talented individuals.
 They've been instrumental in getting Zolo's Zmux products adequately prepared
 to capture a large percentage of the mux/demux market when volume delivery
 begins this summer," said Ed Barbera, CEO and co-founder of Zolo Technologies.
 "We're now delivering on our promise to expand the Zmux product line and feel
 that Bob and Pei are the most qualified individuals to guide this expansion."
     Dr. Pei Huang, formerly principal optical engineer and scientist at Zolo,
 holds a doctorate degree from the University of California at San Diego.  He
 spent two years as a post-doctorate researcher at the Institute of Pure and
 Applied Physical Sciences in La Jolla.  He then served as a physicist working
 on precision frequency standards at the prestigious National Institute of
 Standards and Technology.  He also served as principal engineer at Colorado
 MedTech, developing optical readers for DNA and gene mapping. Dr. Huang has
 authored numerous technical journal articles and conference proceedings, and
 he currently has four patents pending.
     Robert Harr, formerly the lead project director for Zolo's Zmux product
 line, graduated with a degree in mechanical engineering from the Colorado
 School of Mines.  He has extensive experience as an engineer in high-volume
 manufacturing, as well as with the Department of Defense as principal engineer
 on the Sea Wolf submarine project.  Most recently, Harr spent seven years as
 the director of product development for a highly successful sporting goods
 company.  He holds seven patents, and he currently has four patents pending.
 Harr's leadership in the unique mechanical design of the Zmux
 multiplexer/demultiplexer has been instrumental in enabling the product to
 pass the optical networking industry's stringent environmental and vibration
 requirements.
