AirTegrity and Proximetry Announce General Availability of Integrated Solution for Performance-Critical Wireless Networks

Delivering Carrier-Class Broadband Connectivity for Voice, Video and Data

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 28, 2007 -- Proximetry, Inc., a leading provider of wireless performance management solutions, and AirTegrity Wireless, a developer of industry-leading broadband wireless communication solutions, today announced general availability of their integrated, easy-to-manage, WiFi and WiMAX broadband connectivity solution for metro-area wireless networks.

The integrated solution enables WiMAX connectivity for secure access to business-critical data and applications in enterprise and municipal environments where wireless broadband represents a cost-effective "last mile" option for connectivity. The solution provides significant improvements in TCO (total cost of ownership) for delivery, deployment and management of voice, video and data services over a WiMAX network with a single infrastructure management toolset that maximizes the efficiency and reliability of wireless technology deployment and network resources. The solution combines a secure wireless broadband platform with device management, provisioning, and performance optimization capabilities across multi-protocol (WiMAX, WiFi, and select wireline) topologies.

"WiMAX offers enormous potential for enterprises and emerging carriers seeking to provide high-performance, high-bandwidth wireless access to the Internet," said Greg Phillips, CEO/CTO, AirTegrity. "The combination of AirTegrity's WiMAX-in-a-Box™ system and Proximetry's AirSync software platform can help to seamlessly integrate WiMAX into campus and metro-area network environments as part of an overall high-performance, high-bandwidth access technology."

"There's a significant gap facing service providers and enterprises deploying emerging wireless broadband solutions," said Tracy Trent, president and CEO, Proximetry. "By integrating Proximetry's wireless performance management solution, for highly distributed, multi-protocol wireless networks to work with AirTegrity's secure wireless broadband solutions, we enable efficient operations of a broadband multimedia delivery service that meet the most stringent performance requirements."

Proximetry's AirSync solution provides device management, provisioning and performance optimization capabilities to support AirTegrity's WiMAX wireless broadband infrastructure equipment. The integrated solution provides IT management with the ability to easily control and manage wireless connections and high-bandwidth applications for voice, video and data communications. Service provider customers can efficiently install, configure, and manage WiMAX into enterprise network infrastructure while enabling secure connectivity and consistent high performance for end-users.

General availability builds upon 18 months of field testing which has adapted AirTegrity's wireless technologies into a variety of environments such as public safety, energy, and transportation settings where access to performance-critical applications such as voice, video, and telemetry services are crucial to business continuity. The integrated solution complements service provider solutions for high-speed Internet access while enabling the opportunity to offer "carrier-class" services for enterprise clients and environments.
