Airspan to Introduce New 4G LTE Products at Mobile World Congress

Addressing Carriers and Vertical Market 4G Connectivity Needs

BOCA RATON, FL--(Marketwire - February 10, 2011) - Airspan Networks Inc., a leading provider of broadband wireless access networks will emerge at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next week with new products that address 4G multi-platform network infrastructure needs in an age of exploding data traffic demands.

The Company will be announcing its newest fleet of 4G products, all of which incorporate its newest innovations for 4G LTE. The three products, namely AirSynergy, Air4G and AirHarmony, complement each other to meet the growing requirements of 4G network carriers and operators as well as a variety of vertical markets such as Smart Grids, Public Safety and Transportation.

Mobile World Congress takes place in Barcelona, Spain from February 14-17. Airspan will demonstrate its new products at their booth in Hall 1, #B56.

The new products offer Radio Access Network (RAN) solutions and are all designed for low-cost operation, quick deployment and maximized capacity and coverage. Each of the products combines a number of connectivity platforms including WiMAX, 4G LTE and in the case of AirHarmony GSM as well.

Airspan has adopted a new products strategy by introducing 4G LTE technology and has realigned its focus to target vertical markets in addition to the traditional carrier/Telco operator market.

"We are very excited to be announcing our new products and technologies to the industry," commented Paul Senior, Chief Technical Officer at Airspan Networks. "Our new products offer first-ever solutions to address connectivity gaps in 4G networks as well as offer increased range and capacity. Anyone looking for a cost-effective, affordable and reliable 4G network infrastructure solution should visit Airspan at the show."

Amit Ancikovsky, President of Sales and Products, added, "We are adjusting our strategy to align ourselves with the market needs and industry trends. Telecom operators are no longer the only entities requiring 4G connectivity. More and more we see the growing needs for Utilities to make their energy grids more automated and efficient by overlaying a communications network to the grid, for Public Safety and Border Control agencies where surveillance is a necessity as well as inter-agency communication and for any organization that depends on bandwidth demanding applications. Airspan has the product set to meet all their needs."
