NSGDatacom Announces Alex Dobson Joins the Team as VP of ASC Product Sales

HERNDON, VA - August 14, 2002 - NSGDatacom (NSG) announces that Alex Dobson has joined the NSG team as Vice President of ASC Product Sales. Dobson will report directly to Rich Yalen, the CEO.

NSG recently acquired substantially all of the assets of Advanced Switching Communications (ASC) with the plan to sell, support and manufacture the products going forward.

Yalen said, "I am excited about Alex joining us. While at ASC, as VP of Worldwide Sales, he built the sales organization from initial product availability to over $35 million in annual revenue. With Alex's experience, and with NSG's support of the product, I am confident that Alex will continue with the successful track record that he established at ASC."

Dobson said, "I am very pleased that NSG now owns the assets and IP of ASC. I have always believed in the ASC products and their value proposition for Carrier and Enterprise customers. Those who have ASC products installed have been pleased with their long-term performance and reliability and are now glad to have support."

With the state of the telecom market today, ASC's flexible software-based support of ATM, FR, n X T1/E1 and TDM in a small box is even more compelling. By combining these now more aggressively priced products with NSG's solid financial position, customer focus and long-term support strategy, including ASC's best System and Support Engineers, NSG has a solution that is right for today's market.

Dobson has over 15 years of sales and executive sales management experience with large and start-up vendors of networking and communications equipment, selling to large enterprises and service providers worldwide. Companies include Motorola, USRobotics/3Com and, most recently, ASC.

NSG is a privately owned telecommunications company that manufactures, sells and supports a wide range of industry leading voice and data communications products for access, concentration, routing and switching in critical carrier and enterprise applications. NSG completed the acquisition of the products and intellectual property of Nx Networks and Advanced Switching Communications in March 2002 and July 2002, respectively.
