Qwest Extends ONI Gear Deployment

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- ONI Systems(TM) Corp. (Nasdaq:ONIS - news), a leading provider of optical telecommunications systems for the metropolitan and regional markets, today announced that during the first quarter of 2001 Qwest Communications International Inc. continued to deploy ONI's ONLINE(TM) transport platforms in several additional U.S. cities. Qwest Local Broadband Division, which initially purchased ONI equipment in Q2 2000, is leveraging ONI's ONLINE(TM) transport platform to now deliver OC-192 (10 gigabit per second) services to its metro customers, providing an optical foundation for next generation wavelength services.

Bob Jandro, executive vice president of Global Sales and Services for ONI, said, "Qwest is a customer that pushes us to rapidly deliver high quality products. In this case, Qwest started with a foundation of ONI platforms running up to OC-48 speeds. They then upgraded to OC-192 as customer demands grew. ONI is proud of our numerous, successful deployments with Qwest - and now their implementation of our latest metro technology."
