Tranzeo Wireless to Equip Mexico's Largest Home Builder With Wireless Communications System

Canadian company to be exclusive supplier of broadband wireless mesh equipment for 40 communities under construction

PITT MEADOWS, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - May 13, 2008) - Tranzeo Wireless Technologies Inc. (TSX:TZT), a leading producer of high-performance wireless broadband and WiMAX communication systems, will be the exclusive supplier of wireless mesh network equipment to Desarrolladora Homex (NYSE:HXM), Mexico's leading homebuilder.

Through PacificNet, a Tranzeo distributor, Tranzeo's mesh radios will be installed on more than 40 of Homex's construction sites across Mexico. The sites are located in areas with no other wireless connectivity and where wire line connectivity is not financially feasible. Through this partnership, each of Homex's 1,100 engineers will be equipped with Wi-Fi enabled PDA's linking them directly to corporate headquarters via Tranzeo's wireless mesh Wi-Fi radios.

The Tranzeo mesh system communicates with the PDA's using its 802.11b radio and communicates between devices using a dedicated 802.11a backhaul radio. Because of their mesh network topology, the Tranzeo devices automatically network themselves with other mesh radios within range and self-heal the network if a mesh node loses connectivity, so no formal configuration and maintenance is required by IT professionals once the radios are installed.

All work completed by Homex employees can be completed online from the work site, so there will be no need for engineers go back to the office from a construction site to complete paperwork, increasing productivity and saving time and money during construction.

"Tranzeo's high-performance wireless network equipment is designed to be used in situations such as this. As the exclusive wireless supplier to Homex, Tranzeo equipment is affecting positive change for Mexico's leading homebuilder, their employees, and ultimately their customers who benefit from the savings," said Tranzeo President and CEO Jim Tocher.

"To remain at the forefront of the home building industry, it is our intent to be on the leading edge of IT and software development. We believe that by installing Tranzeo's wireless infrastructure on all of our construction sites it will help lower costs and enable us to become more efficient," said Victor Lopez, Vice President IT Systems of Homex.
