RICHARDSON, Texas and MADRID, Spain -- Codium Networks announced at the 3GSM World Congress in Barcelona, a ground breaking broadband wireless network in South Eastern Spain, using equipment from Navini Networks.

The network will give service to thousands of subscribers for the alternative telco Voz y Datos, SL. Voz y Datos is the no.1 alternative telco service provider in the region with many years of experience in the wireless field.

"Making a Broadband Wireless Access network profitable is all about avoiding both the elevated costs of professional subscriber terminal installation and the excruciatingly slow market penetration rate that such an install process entails," said Kiriako Vergos, chief executive officer of Codium Networks. "With our technology and network design formula, we are finally permitting small to medium-sized operators, such as Voz y Datos, to develop their own broadband access infrastructure not only affordably, but more importantly, in a profit-guaranteeing manner."

Navini's products provide portable, non-line-of-sight high-speed Internet access with plug-and-play activation and retail friendly distribution that delivers personal broadband to consumers. Navini's Ripwave(TM) provides the access technology with the backhaul being supplied by InfiNet Wireless Radio Router P-P solution.

"We have tried line-of-sight or near line-of-site BWA systems from various vendors but now we see our sales truly taking off because we have a network infrastructure that does not put a brake on our sales momentum," said Jesus Fernandez, chief executive officer of Voz y Datos. "Our customers are extremely excited by the idea that they can pick-up a subscriber terminal from a local retailer or from our direct sales and in minutes, have a high-speed broadband connection up and running!"

"This is a significant step forward for Southern Europe as the economics of a Smart Beamforming system are realized," said Roger Dorf, president and chief executive officer, Navini Networks. "And of course, with the forward movement of the mobile WiMAX 802.16e standard and the fact that Navini's equipment already provides 802.16e-like capabilities, Voz y Datos can continue to drive the market in Spain."
