Network Equipment Technologies to Provide Maintenance of Hardware and Software Used by DISA, Under Subcontract From CACI

FREMONT, CA--(Marketwire - February 22, 2011) - NET Federal, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Network Equipment Technologies, Inc. ("NET") (NASDAQ: NWK), announced today that it has received a contract award in excess of $3 million of maintenance services, provided on a subcontract basis, for the Defense Information Services Agency (DISA) of the Department of Defense. Under the subcontract agreement with CACI, Inc., which NET had been anticipating since the beginning of calendar 2011, NET will deliver 24x7 Technical Assistance Center (TAC) support for NET hardware and software to DISA over the period from January 3, 2011 to January 2, 2012.

"We are very pleased to receive this order, which is the first significant order for NET Federal services since we returned to providing these services fully in-house in mid-December 2010," said John Winters, Vice President of NET Federal. "This order represents a new phase in our relationship with CACI, and we look forward to a continuing affiliation with CACI as one of our channels for the sale of services on NET products." As a result of NET's return to providing these services independently, the company has removed an external burden on service costs, which will benefit the company's service gross margin.
