SANTA CLARA, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 25, 2006 -- Sohoware, a pioneer in Wireless LAN technology and an emerging leader in integrated networking, announces a joint partnership with Ortega InfoSystems, a leader in software for Web-enabled IP Video, to offer wireless Mesh enabled video surveillance solutions to municipal and corporate security markets. The partnership combines technology leadership that creates exceptional value for VARs and Service Providers whose customers seek a turnkey solution for premier surveillance monitoring and facility control.

Sohoware's AeroMesh, a highly innovative Layer 3 Mesh routing system, will be launched in September 2006, and the integration of Ortega's software technology highlights the commitment Sohoware is making to further solidify the value proposition of AeroMesh to its channel Partners. "Today's wireless Mesh must excel at the integration of both voice and video support.
