Infrax Systems (IFXY) Announces the Availability of New 1.4-1.6 GHz Upgradeable WiMAX / LTE Base Station for Utilities & Rural Broadband Networks

Infrax Creates Path to the Future With 4G Based Long Term Evolution (LTE)

ST. PETERSBURG, FL--(Marketwire - Apr 12, 2011) - Infrax Systems, Inc. (OTCBB: IFXY), a global provider of unified Smart Grid-related products and services for the Energy and Utility industries, today announced the availability of a new upgradeable WiMAX/LTE base station. This new base station option allows network operators and service providers to utilize the desirable 1.4-1.6 GHz frequencies. The addition of these new base stations will provide operators of rural broadband networks better range than the typical 2.5 or 3.5 GHz WiMAX. These new base stations also have the capability of being upgraded from WiMAX (802.16e) to Long Term Evolution (LTE) via firmware. These modular 4G base stations can even provide the ability to change to a different frequency by changing radio modules to provide more longevity of the platform and protect network operator's investments.

The American Reinvestment and Recovery Act appropriated $7.2 billion for the Department of Agriculture's Rural Utilities Service (RUS) and the Department of Commerce's National Telecommunications Information Administration (NTIA) to expand broadband access and adoption in communities across the U.S., which will increase jobs, spur investments in technology and infrastructure, and provide long-term economic benefits.

Infrax's wireless communications products are also a core component of Automated Metering and Substation Automation projects for Utilities. By enabling advanced, reliable communications in a variety of frequency ranges, the products have a broad application range. These new WiMAX / LTE base stations can now be used in different frequency ranges, such as 2.3-2.6 GHz, 3.3-3.8 GHz as well the 1.4-1.6 GHz.

Gone are the days where network operators had to compromise when selecting their technology. In the battle between WiMAX and LTE, Infrax is uniquely positioned to provide not only either solution, but to allow clients to upgrade their existing WiMAX base stations to full LTE capability simply and cost effectively. As the wireless industry continues to pit WiMAX against LTE in an epic battle for 4G supremacy, with Infrax the 4G future is not an either/or proposition.

As utilities and wireless service providers roll out applications requiring greater throughput and increased reliability, this modular and scalable product line provides high performance, efficient, broadband wireless networks with the lowest OPEX and CAPEX in the industry.
