SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Today at Demo 2003, Navini Networks, Inc., the leading provider of zero-install(TM) nomadic wireless broadband technology, launched and demonstrated its new PCMCIA wide area wireless broadband card. In another industry first, Navini's PCMCIA card will enable mobile data users the ultimate in uninterrupted broadband access anywhere in the coverage area. "The Navini PCMCIA card will offer laptop users, and eventually PDA fans, true mobility," said Alastair Westgarth, president and chief executive of Navini. "This is broadband speed without wires and a tremendous range -- no longer do you have to be tethered to a desk or an office environment to have broadband access. Our customers will be able to enjoy a user-friendly experience of high speed Internet access wherever they are -- just as we enjoy using our cell phones today wherever we are." "Navini's WAN PCMCIA card is the equivalent of cellular 3G or a WiFi PCMCIA card on steroids. We are transforming the high speed Internet experience from the matter of a couple of hundred feet from an access point to miles from a base station," he added. While the current Navini Ripwave(TM) system includes small, lightweight desktop modems, the new Navini PCMCIA card further extends mobility and ease- of-use functionality. The current Navini Ripwave CPE, made commercially available in early 2002, operates in the 2.3 GHz WCS, 2.4 GHz ISM, 2.5/2.6 GHz MMDS spectrum, and 3.5 GHz WLL spectrums, and is already used by thousands of people around the world. The new PCMCIA card is one more step in Navini's product roadmap and takes the company closer toward its vision of fully mobile wide area broadband and seamless wireless Internet access. Navini will begin shipping the wide area PCMCIA modem card to customers in the first half of 2003. Navini Networks Inc.
