MONTREAL -- SR Telecom(TM) Inc. (TSX: SRX - News; Nasdaq: SRXA - News) today announced that it has received purchase orders for its angel(TM) broadband fixed wireless access product from Globalcom Data Services Company (GDS), a public wireless access network provider in Lebanon. This is the first of a multi-phase project that will eventually see GDS deploy the angel product in eight major cites throughout the country.

GDS will initially deploy three 3.5 GHz angel base stations and 300 CPEs (Customer Premises Equipment) to deliver data services to the small and medium- sized business community. Over the next two years, GDS expects to extend its angel network with the addition of five to seven base stations and over 10,000 CPEs as they deliver broadband Internet services to residential customers in and around eight Lebanese cities. Deliveries and installations are expected to commence in the fourth quarter of 2003.

"The angel solution continues to open up exciting new markets for us," said Claude Giguere, SR Telecom's Senior Vice-President, Sales. "We are delighted that GDS has selected angel over several competing technologies. angel is a rapidly deployed wireless platform that enables GDS to deliver maximum value to its customers, who can in turn offer the end-user simultaneous access to voice and broadband data services."
