Unity Wireless Receives US$400,000 Purchase Order for GSM Repeaters From a Turkish Wireless Network Operator

BURNABY, BC -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 21, 2006 -- Unity Wireless Corporation (OTCBB: UTYW), a supplier of wireless systems and coverage-enhancement solutions, has received a US$400,000 purchase order for a variety of the Company's GSM Repeaters from a wireless network operator in Turkey. The order is scheduled to be delivered in the current quarter.

Ilan Kenig, President and CEO of Unity Wireless commented, "We are pleased to see that following our recent acquisitions our repeater product line is gaining recognition in new territories and with new clients around the world. Unity is now positioned as a global-based company with physical operations in several countries around the world, including the USA, Canada, Israel, China, South America, India, the UK, and Taiwan. Our increased ability to support our clients is expected to positively impact our top and bottom lines this year."

Mr. Kenig added, "We are focused intently on driving our sales higher, maximizing product line opportunities and channel partner relationships. With the broader product offering we now have, we expect orders such as this one will become a very frequent event."

Each of these repeaters provide exceptional coverage due to their low noise figures and high gain, while having minimal impact on the donor cell, using wide range gain control for performance optimization. Hermetically sealed enclosures, integrated electronics and built-in test and recovery capabilities also make these repeaters extremely reliable. Additional features include auto level control for power overload protection and an SMS-based NMS (Network Management System) tool that can allow network operators to monitor and control the repeaters remotely through an internal wireless modem.

"The global sales team and distribution network we now have as a result of our recent acquisitions are directly responsible for this order," said David Orton, Vice President, Sales - Coverage Solutions. "After bidding in an open tender to supply this new customer we expect that this will likely be the first of many substantial orders that we will receive this year."

Repeaters are used by operators of wireless networks to fill-in gaps in their coverage areas where the cost to install an entire base station and its related infrastructure is prohibitive. Unity Wireless offers a full range of repeaters in multiple configurations, serving operators of CDMA, GSM and WCDMA (UMTS) networks in 800, 900, 1800, 1900 and 2100 MHz bands. The Company intends to offer additional product lines to support the deployment of WiMax networks using OFDM modulation.
