Tellemachus Selects Airspan for 4G Public Safety Application

Enabling CCTV Surveillance Operation for Mission-Critical, Ad-Hoc and Rapidly Deployable Network (RDN) Applications

BOCA RATON, FL--(Marketwire - Feb 28, 2012) - Airspan Networks Inc., a leading provider of 4G broadband wireless access networks, announced today that Tellemachus, an innovative public safety integrator, has selected its 4G Pico base station, AirSynergy, for several applications including RDN, CCTV surveillance and mobile workforce connectivity in the United Kingdom.

AirSynergy is extremely compact, self-contained, all-outdoor, light and easy to deploy. Tellemachus is deploying the base stations to provide reliable, secure, wireless broadband 4G connectivity in remote areas, or when an RDN system is needed to establish communication where infrastructure either does not exist or has been compromised. The network supports fully mobile or fixed user connections, while enabling data-demanding, uplink-centric applications such as CCTV camera surveillance.

The units will operate a secure radio system over licensed spectrum delivering secure, real-time mission-critical voice, video and data communications.

"Airspan's innovative AirSynergy pico base station is a great fit for our overall portfolio," commented Peter Wood, Commercial Director at Tellemachus. "The system will help us meet the challenging demands of the public safety industry, providing secure connectivity, mobility and surveillance wherever needed, while helping to protect our citizens."

AirSynergy is an all-in-one pico base station which supports a wide range of broadband wireless interfaces serving operators and industrial 4G applications. AirSynergy supports 4G access and non-line-of-sight high capacity wireless backhaul from the same network node.

"This project is just another example of our growth in the industrial 4G vertical markets," commented Paul Senior, Chief Technical Officer for Airspan. "Our solutions can be tailored for uplink-centric operation which is essential for public safety applications used by typical Tellemachus customers."

Airspan will be displaying its comprehensive product portfolio, including the AirSynergy, at the Mobile World Congress exhibition in Barcelona, February 27 through March 1, Booth #1C53.

Airspan products include Macro, Pico and Micro base stations, a wide variety of user devices, and advanced core network products, providing 4G LTE and WiMAX connectivity solutions operating in the 700 MHz up to 5.9 GHz bands.
