Unity Wireless Receives Patent for CDMA Base Station Enhancement Technology

Reduced Dropped & Failed Calls -- Better Indoor & Outdoor Coverage -- Higher Data Rates

TEL AVIV, ISRAEL and BELLINGHAM, WA--(Marketwire - September 27, 2007) - Unity Wireless Corporation (OTCBB: UTYW) is pleased to announce that it has been granted US Patent No. 7,236,801 B1 for its CDMA base station transmit diversity technology.

Unity's Senior Technology Advisor, Dr. Shmuel Miller, said, "Unity's new TDA (transmit diversity augmented) technology was implemented in trials with two of the largest wireless carriers in the United States, one of the largest carriers in Mexico, and one of China's largest cellular operators. Measurable performance enhancements included a reduction in dropped calls, fewer call attempt failures, improved coverage, better indoor penetration, and higher data rates on 1xRTT, including forward and reverse links." Dr. Miller continued, "Although TDA technology is well suited to operate with 1xRTT, it would not enhance high data-rate (EVDO) performance."

Nissim Atias, Unity's President and COO, commented, "We are very please to receive this patent on a technology that we believe adds advantages to our products and services."
