NextPhase Submits Application to FCC to Register First Licensed WiMAX Base Station in Anaheim, CA

ANAHEIM, CA--(Marketwire - August 4, 2008) - NextPhase Wireless (OTCBB: NPHS), a nationwide developer of WiMAX networks and provider of advanced broadband solutions, today announced that it has submitted its first application to the FCC to register a licensed WiMAX base station in Anaheim, CA. NextPhase Wireless is a service provider based in Southern California, building a nationwide WiMAX network in the 3.65 GHz band.

In May, NextPhase first announced its plan to blanket Orange County, CA with WiMAX this year. That announcement followed successful field testing of the technology at the company's Southern California headquarters.

"We were extremely pleased with the results of our WiMAX testing this spring, and are ready now for our Phase 1 launch within the time frame we committed to earlier this year," said Tom Hemingway, CEO of NextPhase Wireless.

"Our testing has proven the technology meets all of the industry's expectations, and we are excited to bring a licensed WiMAX offering capable of supporting mission critical data applications as well as voice and data services with at least the same and often greater reliability than that provided by fiber and copper last-mile solutions," Hemingway added.

The NextPhase Wireless portfolio delivers a cost-effectively triple-play service -- voice, data and video -- over wide areas. NextPhase is one of the first WiMAX solutions that includes base stations, interoperability with products from major customer premises equipment (CPE) chipset vendors and outdoor-mounted CPE, as well as monitoring and control systems. The NextPhase Wireless Integration Platform includes portals for authentication, subscriber management and back-end services. The solution is capable of supporting a number of applications such as last-mile broadband connections, wireless services, voice over Internet protocol (VoIP), hotspot and backhaul, and high-speed enterprise connectivity for small, midsized and home-based businesses.
