Aethera Networks(TM) Continues to Expand Sales Network to Address International Demand



    13 additional distributors scale equipment vendor's sales channels in
Europe, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East, reflecting global demand for
AEGIS-V(TM) multi-service networking products

    MONTREAL, December 4 /CNW/ - Aethera Networks(TM), an established
provider of carrier-grade networking solutions for multi-service business
access, triple play and wireless backhaul applications, announced today it has
expanded sales coverage worldwide with the addition of thirteen value-added
resellers (VARs) in Europe, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East. As
leading telecom distributors in their respective regions, the VARs will
address increasing customer demand for the recently introduced AEGIS-V(TM)
networking platform, in addition to providing premium support services to
Aethera Networks' growing international customer base of over 230 service
providers in 30 countries.

    This increased global sales coverage builds upon Aethera Networks'
successful expansion into Latin America earlier this year, adding five new
VARs in this region: Neotronix SRL in Argentina, Triomhtec, Ltd (Mexico),
Dymeq, Ltd. (Chile), Instrumentacion, Ltd. (Columbia), and Impelsa, Inc.
(Guatemala). In addition, four new distributors have been added in Asia: Thai
Transmission Industry Co., Ltd, SC Telecom Korea, Ltd., Commstar
Communications, Ltd (Hong Kong), and Bluetooth Technologies, Ltd in Malaysia.
Aethera Networks will also be represented in the Middle East by Communications
Test Solutions (CTS) Arabia, Inc., in the United Kingdom by Certacom, Ltd., in
Italy by Advanced Telecom Systems, Inc. and in Africa by Lambda Test
Equipment, Ltd of South Africa.

    "We are pleased to welcome these leading, established distributors to our
global sales network," announced Juan-Felipe Gonzalez, Sr. Vice President of
Sales and Marketing at Aethera Networks. "Their expertise and resources will
ensure Aethera Networks' customers continue to receive responsive, premium
support as they deploy Carrier Ethernet and packet-based services with our
products."

    "We see an enormous potential for Aethera Networks' solutions to address
the transition from TDM to IP networks as ILECs, CLECs, independent telcos and
cooperatives deploy high bandwidth Internet, IPTV, and VoIP", explained
Gustavo Cetera, CEO of Neotronix SRL in Argentina. Stan Marcus, Managing
Member of Lambda in South Africa agreed, "Increased competition from continued
deregulation in South Africa is driving dramatic growth for cost-effective,
scalable network solutions that can carry TDM and packet-based services on
fixed and mobile networks."

    Guillermo Gomez, General Manager of Instrumentacion SA in Columbia added,
"Aethera Networks' products complete our portfolio, offering a competitive
solution to service providers large and small, offering broadband,
multi-service communications in Columbia." Anuchit Vasinonta, AVP of
Engineering for Thai Transmission Industry sees similar value, "Carriers in
Thailand have built high-capacity fiber transport infrastructures, and are now
building access and aggregation networks that will enable the services and
revenue these backbones were designed for. Aethera Networks' robust AEGIS-V
platform, with a compact footprint, high port density, and next-generation SDH
support fits perfectly with these deployments going forward."
