    MILPITAS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 19, 1999-- Larscom
    Incorporated (Nasdaq:LARS - news) today
    announced that the

    signed a comprehensive contract
    with the company to

    Larscom's cost-effective,

    efficiency and expanded services to state agencies.


    The two-year agreement (group award number

    upgrades,
    maintenance, training, and consulting, all of which is
    available to all New York state agencies,
    governments
    and authorities including universities, hospitals,
    police departments, libraries, and local school
    systems.
    Larscom has chosen Annese & Associates of Herkimer, New
    York to administer the contract exclusively.


    ``This contract advances our efforts to provide New York
    State agencies with the best quality products
    and
    services at the lowest possible cost,'' said Wendy Gibson,
    OGS Director of Public Affairs. ``It is essential
    that
    state agencies have accessible and reliable high-speed
    Internet capabilities, ensuring they can meet
    the
    growing demands for their services.''

    ``We are
    pleased to move ahead with Larscom to support the State
    of New York's expanding needs,'' said
    Domenick
    Petucci, VP Ops, Annese. ``Larscom's solid reputation as a
    leader in network access equipment
    compliments
    Annese's strong presence in the northeast territories.''


    ``Larscom is delighted to have won this contract with NY
    State OGS,'' said Melissa Egusa, Larscom's
    channel
    marketing manager. ``We are looking forward to supplying
    the State agencies, their partners, and
    users
    superior connectivity to the Internet, access to uniform
    grades of service, improved regional networking,
    better
    connectivity to other regional networks, and a platform for
    fielding future global services based on
    Internet
    technology.

    ``We selected Annese to distribute
    Larscom products and manage this contract because the
    company has
    built a solid reputation and customer base
    among NY State agencies.''
