Loea Corporation First to Obtain FCC Certification for 71-76 GHz and 81-86 GHz Gigabit Fixed Wireless Product

SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 25, 2005--Loea Corporation, a provider of fixed wireless communications products, has received the first ever equipment certification in the newly regulated 71.0-76.0 GHz and 81.0-86.0 GHz wireless communication bands. This certification was granted under the authority of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) on July 15, 2005. Loea's product has ultra high availability (99.999% at 1 km) and supports data transport at rates up to 1.25 Gbps, full-duplex, making it a tailor fit for last mile access and infrastructure applications, a critical bottleneck in today's communication systems. Loea was a key architect of the rules and the author of the petition to the FCC for rule making which was submitted on September 10, 2001.

"Achieving equipment certification is a critical milestone for our business; it now opens an enormous market opportunity," said Dr. Daniel Scharre, President and CEO of Loea. "We are pleased that we have achieved another 'first' in this frequency band. Loea was the first to deploy product in this band and has had product in the field since 2002. Loea was the first to obtain equipment certification from the NTIA (National Telecommunications and Information Administration), the regulatory body for Federal Government users who have been actively consuming Loea's technology since 2003. Loea was also the first company in this band to successfully complete evaluation testing by the US Army's Systems Engineering Command at Fort Huachuca in Sierra Vista, Arizona."

Loea's standard products support data payloads of 622 Mbps (OC-12) and 1.25 Gbps (Gigabit Ethernet Standard), all in a full-duplex mode. Loea has an active development program for a 2.5 Gbps (OC-48) product and has a roadmap to 10 Gbps (to support both OC-192 and 10GigE). The product has built-in SNMP device monitoring capabilities and is plug-and-play with standard network equipment.
