ARC Wireless' Wireless Communications Solutions Division Now Shipping New Wi-Fi® and WiMAX™ Dual-Polarized MIMO Antennas

WHEAT RIDGE, CO--(Marketwire - July 14, 2008) - ARC Wireless Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: ARCW) today announced the shipment of its new line of Wi-Fi® and WiMAX™ dual-polarized antennas by its Wireless Communications Solutions Division ("ARC"). Two versions of Wi-Fi® dual-polarized antennas are currently available: 2.4GHz 16dBi and 5.8GHz 20dBi. A 5.8GHz 23dBi dual-polarized model is projected to be available near the end of August of this year. For WiMAX™ applications ARC is currently offering 14dBi and 16dBi gain antennas in the 2.5GHz band and 14dBi and 18dBi gain antennas in the 3.5GHz band. These ARC dual-polarized antennas are compatible with the ARC IES™ product line which provides an antenna/enclosure solution well-suited for PTMP (point-to-multi-point) and PTP (point-to-point) applications.

All of ARC's dual-polarized antennas are compatible with MIMO (Multiple-In/Multiple-Out) and non-MIMO applications. MIMO technology increases distance between communications devices and also increases data throughput without the need for more bandwidth. This is accomplished by using multiple antenna inputs to the receiver and multiple antenna outputs to the transmitter of the radio. The multiple outputs and inputs are connected to an antenna solution with multiple ports such as ARC's dual-polarized antennas. When used in Wi-Fi® or WiMAX™ applications, the results are a higher performing and more efficient wireless network.

ARC's dual-polarized antennas provide high port-to-port isolation which, for MIMO applications, allows optimum processing gain and performance. For non-MIMO applications, high port-to-port isolation can help reject unwanted signals to enter the receiver which improves system capacity and performance.

"Dual-polarized antennas combined with MIMO radio technology can provide our customers with increased system performance while reducing overall operating costs," said Steven Olson, President and CTO of ARC Wireless Communications Solutions Division. "We feel our MIMO ready antenna products combined with our ARC IES™ offering will provide both our Wi-Fi® and WiMAX™ customers even more options through the use of ARC Wireless' unique and patented technologies."

The ARC IES™ line of products includes a fully integrated IP-67 enclosure solution designed to facilitate various antenna and radio combinations. The enclosure is compatible with all ARC integrated antennas, ranging from 900MHz to 5.8GHz, including embedded, bolt-on and external stand-alone antennas. For customers who want a unique product look, the ARC IES™ solution design allows color differentiation for brand recognition.
