InfiNet Wireless Introduces a New Class of Application Aware Broadband Wireless Access Networks

First to Provide a Total Triple Play BWA Solution Ready for Advanced Services

CAMBRIDGE, UNITED KINGDOM -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 14, 2005 -- InfiNet Wireless, a global provider of Broadband Wireless Access (BWA) and pre-WiMAX equipment for last mile connectivity and private and public networks, has moved to the next level in delivering service-oriented broadband wireless networks designed from the ground up. Using its world leading, IP-aware broadband wireless router platform as a starting point, InfiNet Wireless now allows customers to deliver enhanced VoIP applications with a new range of VoIP products designed for wireless Triple Play.

InfiNet's new VoIP products include the Signaling Gateway Controller (SGC), Media Gateway Controller (MGC), Session Border Controller (SBC) and a range of IP-phones and DECT stations. This full array of VoIP solutions will complement both pre-WiMAX and WiMAX networks, and use load balancing and gateway clustering to scale while allowing the entry-level system to be deployed inside an InfiNet Wireless router. Real Time Protocol (RTP) traffic is optimized to improve VoIP voice quality and manage traffic to minimize uplink congestion.

"We studied the problem of wireless service delivery carefully and used operational InfiNet broadband wireless access networks to come up with an architecture that relieves many of the problems involved in implementing VoIP networks," states Igor Akulov, CTO of InfiNet Wireless. "With this new technology, InfiNet Wireless is the only supplier to provide a total triple play broadband wireless access solution that is ready today for advanced services."

The new range of gateways provide load balance signaling and real time protocol streams across stackable units, with no moving parts, that are environmentally ruggedized. Additionally, sharing of DSP load across units optimize functions such as codec compression, echo cancellation and Interactive Voice Response (IVR). Distribution of RTP streams across the network allows service providers to overcome NAT/Firewall issues using RTP proxy and optimize traffic flow so that the BWA network is not saturated with unnecessary data transfer.

Because the whole solution is based on the InfiNet Wireless WanFlex operating system, features available in one device can be accessed across the whole network. InfiNet Wireless BWA radio routers can also share some of the VoIP features available in the gateways and signaling systems, so a truly cost-effective solution can be found.

InfiNet Wireless VoIP BWA products provide:

--  Customer premises equipment - WiMAX and Pre-WiMAX BWA router CPEs,
    VoIP handsets, multi-channel VoIP DECT base stations and VoIP gateways;
--  Access Network - WiMAX and Pre-WiMAX BWA router BSes, VoIP PSTN
    gateways (MG-IP & MG-E1/T1), signaling gateways (SGC), RTP proxies and
    Session Border Controllers (SBC);
