    LU has a great backplane supplier

    Robinson Nugent, Inc. Wins Multimillion-Dollar
    Contract for Lucent Backplane Connector
    Ind.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 14, 2000--Robinson Nugent, Inc.
    (Nasdaq:RNIC - news), a high technology connector manufacturer
    announced today that they have been awarded the contract
    for the backplane connector for the newly released
    MAX TNT switch. The MAX TNT is a multiprotocol WAN
    access switch that enables carriers, ISPs, corporations
    and major network providers to offer a variety of
    access services such as analog, ISDN, leased T1/E1 and
    Frame Relay. Because the MAX TNT is the highest-density
    product in its class, it dramatically reduces rack space
    requirements while driving down the price per port.

    According to Ray Wandell, Vice President Sales, North
    America, the Robinson Nugent connector system chosen was
    the METPAKTM2 Inverse System that has gained wide
    acceptance in the network service industry. ``It has been
    selected by many of our customers who participate in the
    Internet service providers marketplace,'' says Mr.
