MARINA DEL REY, Calif. -- 5G Wireless Communications, Inc. (OTCBB:FGWC), an emerging leader in the wireless broadband industry, announced today that it has been selected by the City of Pleasanton, CA to provide wireless broadband networking equipment for municipal traffic operations.

"We believe Pleasanton's choice represents further confirmation that the 5G solution is the right product at the right time for municipal governments looking to upgrade their infrastructures," stated Jerry Dix, 5G Wireless CEO. "Delivering superior range and speed at some of the lowest price points in the country is a critical value proposition for local governments on tight budgets."

"Our customized application connects key traffic signal video camera feeds to Pleasanton traffic central operations, and this improves the overall public safety profile for a rapidly growing community," added Tom Spies, VP Business Development for Northern Pacific Wireless, the Value Added Reseller (VAR) who brokered the deal for 5G. "The installation allows the city to implement a secure, high-speed broadband network while reducing the costs associated with a traditional fiber optics, thereby allowing for future expansion."

"5G Wireless has provided us the ability to communicate with our remote traffic signal locations and transmit our video images back to our Traffic Operations Center so we can see live images of the intersection," said Mike Tassano, City of Pleasanton's Senior Traffic Engineer. "Operating on a tight budget limits our ability to install interconnect to many of our traffic signals. With 5G's wireless technology, the gaps in our communications infrastructure can now be bridged. We're already looking to expand the system to include the rest of our traffic signals and are considering making this hardware standard equipment for new signal installations."
