Vecima and Cybersurf team up for industry leading Canadian WiMAX deployment

Victoria, British Columbia -- Vecima Networks Inc. ("Vecima") (TSX:VCM), the Last Mile Solution(R) for broadband wireless and wired networks, has been selected by Cybersurf Corp. ("Cybersurf") to supply it's VistaMAX(TM) solution of base stations and customer premise equipment (CPE) for deployments. The first phase of the commercial deployment will occur in Edmonton, Alberta. Cybersurf will not only be utilizing Vecima's world class hardware for the deployment but will also be leasing licensed spectrum which is owned by Vecima.
Vecima and its subsidiary YourLink own spectrum in the 3.5GHz and 2.3GHz bands across Canada. As an equipment manufacturer Vecima wants to provide customers with all the tools necessary for a successful deployment and licensed spectrum is often a key to success. "This contract validates Vecima's lead in the WiMAX space providing solutions using our Canadian in-house manufacturing capabilities. This allows us to deliver a wide range of CPE products to suit the needs of our customers," commented Robert Forget, Director of Wireless Sales at Vecima. "I am excited to be working with Canada's largest independent Internet Service Provider to bring another option to the Canadian consumers. Managed Quality of Service (QoS) in the VistaMAX(TM) product line allows us to deploy toll quality voice and broadband data on the same network."

As part of the agreement, Cybersurf will have an option to acquire a portion of Vecima's 3.5 GHz spectrum. "The option would ensure that Cybersurf is able to control the "last-mile" said Marcel Mercia, COO of Cybersurf. "Providing an alternative to traditional DSL and Cable services allows us to compete in an otherwise closed market. This is great for Canadians and also very interesting for us as a company by minimizing our reliance on the Incumbents."

Vecima has recently announced fully deployable commercial WiMAX solutions. A Principal Member of the WiMAX Forum, Vecima currently has shipped WiMAX compliant gear for trial deployments worldwide. Building upon the success of its BWIN(TM) systems, the company is now delivering WiMAX systems for mass market adoption. Vecima's flexible Media Access Control (MAC) allows optimized performance for our rugged WiMAX products in various frequency bands.
