Network Equipment Technologies to Exhibit at the AFCEA West Conference

NET Federal to Showcase Its VX, NX and UX Series for Government Customers Seeking Secure Voice and Data Applications

DULLES, VA--(Marketwire - Jan 23, 2012) - NET Federal, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Network Equipment Technologies, Inc. ("NET") (NASDAQ: NWK), announced today that it will exhibit at the AFCEA West show, January 23-26, 2012 in booth 1624. Co-sponsored by AFCEA International and the U.S. Naval Institute, West 2012 is the largest event on the West Coast for communications, electronics, intelligence, and information systems. NET Federal will showcase the company's voice and data product solutions from its VX, NX and UX Series products.

VX Series Product Family
NET's VX Series delivers features necessary for government customers to move to software enabled voice solutions while maintaining the strict security and reliability that the Department of Defense (DoD) requires in its voice systems. Optimized for government use, the VX Series supports advanced frame packing for bandwidth optimization as well as MLPP and advanced security features. It also has a robust implementation of V.150 Universal Modem Relay that communicates between secure IP phones. NET's VX Series is JITC-certified as a Deployed Network Element (D-NE).

Features such as Assured Services - SIP (AS-SIP), V.150 Universal Modem Relay, and advanced frame packing techniques offered in the VX Series are critical components in the government's migration to next-generation, software enabled, unified capabilities platforms. Proven by use in DoD and NATO, NET's VX Series is the clear choice for government entities looking to achieve the advantages of next generation voice systems while assuring adherence to the DoD standards for security and reliability.

NX Series Product Family
NET's NX Series high-performance networking platforms provide high-grade data transfer between storage area networks (SANs) and WANs and enable secure grid computing. NET will be demonstrating its NX1000, an IP-enabled platform with an on-board IP trunk module, which provides a flexible, cost-effective IP aggregation solution that facilitates migration of legacy traffic to IP. NET's NX1000 is a new generation of Intelligent Bandwidth Manager. The NX1000 works with the Promina family of bandwidth managers and it adds to Promina's extensive capabilities. Housed in a small (4RU), energy efficient chassis, the NX1000 offers the bandwidth of a Promina 800 and incorporates an IP Trunk module for connecting TDM traffic, both serial and voice, over an IP transport. The NX1000 will separate the TDM traffic over IP into Direct Virtual Trunks (DVTs), allowing a single IP aggregate to communicate with up to 16 other NX1000s over the IP transport. It can also utilize the IP Trunk to transport standard SATOP traffic from the NX1000 to any other device capable of receiving SATOP circuits. The NX1000 supports all Promina expansion shelf cards as well as the new High Density Data Modules (4 RS530 Serial Ports) and PVS-EM Voice Modules (4 T1/E1, Echo and Compression). The NX1000 is fully manageable through netMS, NET's network management system for Promina.

UX2000 Session Mediation Controller
The UX2000 is a modular 1U system that has been purpose-built for unified communications, enterprise border controller and multi-service business gateway applications. The UX2000 comes equipped with up to six high performance DSPs and two telecom card slots with a choice of 2, 4, or 8 port DS1 cards, offering the industry's best mediation processing for IP-to-TDM, IP-to-IP, or TDM-to-TDM solutions. An optional, high-performance, server-class application solutions module (ASM) based on a 2.53Ghz Intel Core i7 processor can also be added for third-party application support. In contrast to media gateways, which can have severely degraded call capacities during high complexity media processing operations, the UX2000 can support up to 600 simultaneous transcoded and encrypted calls. As a session mediation platform, UX Series products reduce both capital and operational expenses by eliminating the need to purchase separate infrastructure components such as a PSTN gateway, session border controller, and application server. The UX Series is qualified as a Survivable Branch Appliance for Microsoft® Lync™ 2010.
