HERNDON, Va. -- GigaBeam Corporation announces that it has entered into an agreement with WiFi Projects, Ltd. for the distribution of WiFiber(TM) products in Ireland. This agreement follows up on the recent issuance of a trial license by Ireland's Commission for Communications Regulation (ComReg), the first such authorization in Europe, for the implementation of GigaBeam's WiFiber technology. WiFi Projects is a leading provider of wireless products and services in Ireland.

Allan Brennan, WiFi Projects' Managing Director and founder stated, "WiFi Projects is thrilled to be working with GigaBeam in penetrating the Irish market. We have received enthusiastic support from the Irish communications regulator, ComReg, which has given us approval for a number of test and trial installations already and expects WiFiber technology to be widely deployed."

Louis Slaughter, Chairman and CEO of GigaBeam stated, "We are extremely excited about ComReg's authorization for WiFiber in Ireland and look forward to working closely with WiFi Projects in deploying WiFiber in Ireland. Ireland is our first initiative in developing market acceptance for WiFiber in Europe and other international markets. We believe that there is a significant market for WiFiber technology in these markets."

GigaBeam WiFiber operates in the 71-76 GHz and 81-86 GHz radio spectrum bands. This portion of the radio frequency spectrum has been authorized by the Federal Communications Commission for wireless point-to-point commercial use. Use of these frequency bands for commercial use was pioneered by GigaBeam's founders.
