SPEAKING ENGAGEMENT: AXERRA NETWORKS TO PARTICIPATE IN “NEXT GEN BACKHAUL: 3G, 4G AND BEYOND” CONFERENCE

-- All-Day Conference Presented by Telecommunications Magazine and
Infonetics Research at CTIA Wireless 2008 in Las Vegas, Nevada --

Boca Raton, FL – March 31, 2008 – Axerra Networks, “The Pseudo-Wire Company®” and the leading provider of circuit emulation and service emulation solutions for mobile backhaul, will be participating in the “Next Gen Backhaul: 3G, 4G and Beyond” Conference taking place on Wednesday, April 2, 2008 at CTIA Wireless 2008 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

This one-day conference explores the latest technologies, products, business cases, strategies, and early mobile operator experiences with next gen backhaul solutions as well as long-term operator strategies for mobile backhaul. Haim Volinsky, Axerra’s VP Marketing, will be speaking on the topic of “All-IP Mobile Backhaul Business Cases and Timeframes” at 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday, April 2, 2008.

The IP RAN era has begun as the first early base stations and NodeBs with Ethernet/IP interfaces are being deployed, with Ethernet for backhaul – but there are 3 million mobile backhaul connections that are not IP yet. The “All-IP Mobile Backhaul Business Cases and Timeframes” session, moderated by Michael Howard, Principal Analyst and Co-Founder of Infonetics Research, will discuss the deployment scenarios that give the greatest payback and operational efficiencies as mobile operators and transport providers move closer to All-IP backhaul.

“Axerra Networks has extensive experience in enabling mobile operators around the world to backhaul all generations of voice and data services while they move towards an All-IP network,” said Haim Volinsky, Axerra’s VP Marketing. “I’m pleased to participate in this session and share the knowledge gained from our involvement in all stages of the decision-making process, including lab trials, field trials and successful deployments.”

Axerra’s scalable AXN Pseudo-Wire solutions, deployed in cell sites and central offices, enable a new era in RAN backhaul that supports the transport of voice and high-speed data over packet access networks. The AXN Pseudo-Wire solutions simultaneously enable operators to significantly reduce recurring costs while catalyzing the deployment of Carrier Ethernet, GPON/EPON, xDSL, HFC, and WiMAX in the RAN. Axerra’s solutions enable the support of all generations of wireless networks, including GSM, GPRS, EDGE, UMTS (with full Iub packetization), and HSxPA, preserve native signaling and features across packet networks, enable bandwidth sharing, and provide the high-precision clock recovery capabilities that are required for reliable mobile services. AXN Pseudo-Wire Gateways and Access Devices™ support circuit emulation and service emulation, including Frame Relay/HDLC, Ethernet, and even ATM services for 2G, 2.5G, 3G, and beyond voice and data aggregation from a single box. AXN Pseudo-Wire platforms control latency, jitter, and packet loss – critical capabilities for reliable mobile applications.

Recently, Axerra Networks and its backhaul solutions have received several prestigious industry awards. In June 2007, Axerra Networks was named the recipient of a NXTcomm Eos Award as a runner-up in the category of Technology Innovative: Access Networking. In February 2007, and for the second year in a row, Axerra was a “commended” finalist in the GSM Association Global Mobile Awards for “best radio access product or service.”

Axerra will be showcasing its award-winning solutions at Booth #3451 at CTIA Wireless 2008 in Las Vegas, NV from April 1 – 3, 2008.
