BOCA RATON, Fla. -- Airspan Networks Inc. (Nasdaq: AIRN), a leading provider of WiMAX broadband wireless access networks, announced today that wi-tribe limited Jordan has contracted for additional WiMAX equipment to expand their network across the country.

wi-tribe limited Jordan is a subsidiary of wi-tribe, a joint venture between The Qtel Group (Qatar Telecom) and the A.A. Turki Group of Companies (ATCO) together with a proactive partnership with Clearwire (Nasdaq: CLWR), originally selected Airspan as their preferred supplier in January of 2008.

wi-tribe Jordan has deployed Airspan’s 3.6-GHz HiperMAX solution which today allows a carrier the choice of fixed or mobile WiMAX on a single hardware platform. Airspan’s HiperMAX base station with advanced radio technologies has enabled wi-tribe to minimize the number of base stations required for indoor coverage.

wi-tribe recently launched commercial service on their network and are now in the expansion phase of their successful deployment. Similar to other Airspan customers, wi-tribe is growing their HiperMAX network with the confidence that it will be compatible with any future WiMAX roadmap.

Anders Rendahl, Airspan’s Senior Vice President and General Manager of EMEA, commented, “We’re very happy to see wi-tribe’s success and to be the partner for their expansion. wi-tribe is an innovative carrier in a market which has excellent opportunities for broadband growth.”
