Wes-Tex Telecommunications Selects Airspan for Rural Texas WiMAX Network

3/12/09 - Airspan Networks Inc. (NASDAQ: AIRN), a leading provider of broadband wireless access networks, announced that Wes-Tex Telecommunications, a division of Wes-Tex Telephone Cooperative, Inc., working with systems integrator Stutler Technologies, selected Airspan advanced WiMAX solutions for a city-wide deployment in Big Spring, Texas.

Wes-Tex, a rural local exchange carrier, has previously served customers through traditional leased wired lines. Due to rising costs, the company began looking for alternatives to better serve its customer base. After some research, Wes-Tex decided that Airspan's WiMAX solution would best meet its needs in delivering high-speed Internet as well as quality voice services.

Using Airspan's HiperMAX base station equipment in the 3.65 GHz band, the network has full city coverage with multiple base stations communicating with hundreds of outdoor units placed at the customer premises. This mobile WiMAX compliant platform was selected to allow for future mobile applications if desired. Airspan's advanced WiMAX technology offers next-generation frequency efficiency software, quality of service (QoS) and network management.

"Airspan and Stutler were able to devise a solution that allows us not only to continue serving our current customers with voice, but also to expand our customer base with added services such as high-speed Internet," commented Wes-Tex General Manager, J.R. "Bob" Wilson. "We were also able to plan, develop and deploy the network very quickly and at a low cost."

Declan Byrne, Chief Marketing Officer for Airspan, added, "We are very pleased to add Wes-Tex to our long list of rural U.S. customers. This network further expands our leadership position in the United States and, more specifically, in the 3.65 GHz frequency band. Our partnership with Stutler Technologies continues to thrive as we work together to supply broadband across the United States."

Stutler Technologies will continue to maintain the VLAN and QoS for the Wes-Tex 3.65 GHz network.
