For Immediate Release

IWICS Announces Release of PARROT Fixed Wireless Network Products

(05/15/2005 - Bothell, Washington, USA)

IWICS announced that it has formally released its PARROT family of Fixed Wireless Network products. PARROT devices are based on IWICS' patented ODMA™ (Opportunity Driven Multiple Access™) technology to enable high-speed wireless data communication with better coverage and lower cost than conventional wireless technologies. PARROT products can operate independently or be deployed in concert with other wireless technologies (such as WiMAX or 802.11a devices) depending on the specific needs for customer deployments.

The PARROT family of products consists of the PARROT 1000, a customer premise device that acts as the ethernet interface to the subscribers PC/Handheld/VOIP-Phone from the ODMA network. The PARROT 2100 is referred to as an outdoor "seed" in ODMA parlance because it helps to establish (or seed) an ODMA network with wireless relay points to provide sufficient relay opportunities until the network organically grows to provide continuous coverage among subscribers. The PARROT 3200 is the ODMA Gateway device that connects an ODMA network to outside networks using TCP/IP communications. PARROT 3200s also support ODMA-Over-Wire to allow for extension of native ODMA network communications over wired links.

"We are pleased to be able to offer the PARROT line of fixed wireless communications products to the user community for implementing high-speed, low-cost, reliable wireless networks" said James Larsen, President/CEO of IWICS. "We believe that ODMA technology like our PARROT products will enable many wireless communication solutions that were previously thought to be technically infeasible or cost prohibitive."
