Unity Wireless Receives Purchase Order From Mexican Wireless Network Operator for CDMA Repeaters Worth US$186,000

BURNABY, BC -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 29, 2006 -- Unity Wireless Corporation (OTCBB: UTYW), a developer of wireless systems and coverage-enhancement solutions, has received a new purchase order worth approximately US$186,000 from an existing wireless network operator customer in Mexico for the immediate supply of two types of 20 Watt CDMA repeaters.

Repeaters are used by operators of wireless networks to fill-in gaps in their coverage areas where the cost to install an entire base station and its related infrastructure is prohibitive. Unity Wireless offers a full range of repeaters in multiple configurations serving operators of CDMA, GSM and WCDMA (UMTS) networks in 800, 900, 1800, 1900 and 2100 MHz bands.

Once the service frequency and output power is determined to provide the desired coverage, the operator can choose from a variety of options available to get the voice and data traffic to and from the repeater site, a term known as backhaul. These options include non-conventional methods such as licensed and unlicensed microwave links, frequency translating links and free space optics (FSO) links in addition to conventional methods such as off-air, fiber-fed and frequency translating versions.

The ability to offer so many backhaul options to a customer is one of the unique advantages Unity Wireless now has as a result of its recent acquisitions and puts the customer in greater control of their options to enhance their wireless network coverage.
