Tandem Computers Inc. agreed to sell its computer networking equipment unit, UB Networks, to Newbridge Networks Corp. of Canada for an undisclosed amount. The sale, expected to close in 30 days, will help Tandem concentrate on its fault-tolerant computer business and will help Newbridge Networks, a computer networking equipment maker, expand its product lines, the companies said. UB Networks lost $17.3 million on revenue of $377 million in the fiscal year ended Sept. 30.

Steven Spielberg's Starbright Foundation said Tuesday that it plans to develop an on-line computer network that aims to link seriously ill children in hospitals worldwide. A pilot program involving several U.S. hospitals is set to be launched this summer. Using high-speed telecommunications equipment and mobile computer workstations, the children will be able to dial into the network from their beds and talk to other kids logged into a three-dimensional "virtual playspace."
