SALEM, N.H., March 14, 2013

SALEM, N.H., March 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Enterasys Networks, a Siemens
Enterprise Communications Company, has been recognized with three 2013
Manufacturing Leadership 100 Awards (ML100 Awards). For 2013, Enterasys is in
elite company being only one of four companies to win three ML100 awards.
Other triple winners are IBM, Lexmark International and Lockheed-Martin.

The recognition is a testament to Enterasys' pursuit of continuous
improvement, rapid product development and implementing novel process
improvements to bring high quality/high value products to enterprise
customers. The winning developments include:

  oRobotic Optical Inspection – To prevent mechanical assembly defects,
    Enterasys manufactured an automated robotic optical inspection system,
    called NaDIA, which performs real-time analysis to identify assembly
    mistakes or damage of manufactured products – a system unique in the
    electronics assembly industry.
  o3D Printing & Prototyping – The Mechanical Engineering and Design Services
    team implemented a rapid prototype system to test concept design form and
    fit. The 3D prototype printer sped up the turn-around time of early
    concept models and helped to compress overall new product introduction
    cycle time.
  oSmartSheet – SmartSheet is a "state of the art," cloud-based collaboration
    technology adopted by Enterasys to enhance business processes (displacing
    existing tools MS SharePoint, MS Project, Excel, etc.). This
    collaboration across world time zones has led to more timely communication
    with suppliers with real-time project management status enabling teams to
    make better decisions.

Now in their ninth year, the Manufacturing Leadership 100 Awards honor
companies and individuals that are shaping the future of global
manufacturing. These awards recognize the most innovative and
forward-thinking companies across 11 categories spanning all global
enterprises. The winners of the 2013 ML100 awards represent nine different
countries on three continents, with winners hailing from the United States,
Canada, China, Germany, India, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, and
Switzerland.

"We are honored to receive three Manufacturing Leadership 100 Awards for 2013
as we constantly strive to excel in product manufacturing and innovation
leadership," said Brad Martin, Vice President, Engineering Operations and
Quality, Enterasys. "We collaborate with customers and partners to deliver
real-time visibility into critical business operations and our advanced
product technologies are manufactured to ensure the highest quality and top
notch customer service."

Enterasys will be honored and presented with the awards at the Manufacturing
Leadership Summit Awards Gala, taking place May 13-15 at The Breakers in West
Palm Beach, FL.
