MARINA DEL REY, Calif. -- 5G Wireless Solutions, Inc., an emerging leader in the wireless broadband industry and a wholly-owned subsidiary of 5G Wireless Communications, Inc. (OTCBB: FGWC), announced today that Carl J. Weisman has joined the company as a full-time Sr. Engineer.

Mr. Weisman began his training in 1980, earning a BSEE from Pennsylvania State University. He started his career at Hughes Aircraft Company as a design engineer working on radar for fighter aircraft. During his nine-year service there, he was awarded the Hughes Fellowship, which enabled him to pursue an MSEE from the University of Southern California. He also received an MBA from Loyola Marymount University.

He then spent eight years working in sales and marketing of RF and wireless hardware for several companies, including Avantek-Hewlett Packard and M/A-COM-AMP. During this period, he spent a great deal of time conducting product training for non-technical sales people, which served as the inspiration for his book, “The Essential Guide to RF and Wireless” (Prentice Hall, 2002). The book is now in its second edition, and is becoming one of the industry’s standard texts. He has also used his expertise to provide sales training for several other technology companies, including Avnet/Penstock, Richardson Electronics, Sertek, TTI, and Insight Electronics.

“Carl offers the right mix of engineering and business savvy to convey our value proposition to sales prospects,” stated Jerry Dix, 5G Wireless Communications CEO. “And his extensive experience in communicating with non-technical people about RF will provide us a real competitive edge. He’ll be out in the field, assisting our sales force with site surveys and helping to close deals.”
