Country-Wide Deployment of WiMAX Continuing Momentum

Boca Raton, FL -- Airspan Networks, Inc., a leading worldwide provider of WiMAX and Wi-Fi based broadband wireless access networks, today announced expansion orders received from DBD Deutsche Breitband Dienste GmbH ("DBD") of Germany, for the deployment of Airspan's WiMAX products. DBD has placed orders for over 500 additional base stations and a significant number of subscriber terminals.
DBD, Germany's first and largest WiMAX operator, provides broadband access services using Airspan's WiMAX technology in the 3.5GHz band, for both residential and enterprise customers. DBD has now rolled out services in more than forty networks, the largest deployment being in Berlin, where subscribers enjoy the freedom of wireless Internet access at highly competitive prices.

In addition, DBD is one of the first operators to deploy Airspan's VoiceMAX technology on a WiMAX network. VoiceMAX gives operators the ability to deliver carrier-grade VoIP services through a software suite that provides VoIP admission control, which monitors the user experience of voice calls over WiMAX networks. VoiceMAX enables wireless operators to prevent network congestion and prevents data traffic from degrading voice quality as the network is loaded with IP traffic. With VoiceMAX, DBD can guarantee high quality and consistent voice services to its subscribers at any time.

"This additional commitment from DBD demonstrates Airspan's leading position in delivering voice and data WiMAX solutions that are reliable and easily deployable. Airspan's WiMAX products have allowed DBD to strengthen its leadership in rolling out WiMAX broadband infrastructure in Germany," said Eric Stonestrom, Airspan's president and chief executive officer.

Commenting on the transaction, Fabio Zoffi, founder and chief executive officer of DBD, said "Airspan has delivered proven quality WiMAX products to DBD that have allowed our network and our subscriber base to grow extremely fast. With the recent introduction of a bundled service including high quality voice services (VoIP), we expect even more customers to enjoy the freedom offered by wireless, all IP, communication over our WiMAX networks."
