Hopling Technologies Receives Order from the EVD

• Important injection into the telecommunication infrastructure in Eastern Europe.
• Delivery of a complete end-to-end wireless mesh network solution for the realization of six wireless metropolitan networks.

Almere, February 11, 2008 - Hopling Technologies, a manufacturer of state-of-the-art networking equipment for enterprises, operators and service providers, today announced that it has signed a contract for the delivery of citywide wireless solutions in six cities in Eastern Europe.

Under the terms of the contract, Hopling Technologies will deliver a complete end-to-end solution for the realization of six wireless metropolitan networks. The agreement also includes network design by the Hopling European Competence Center in Almere, in-depth technical training provided by the Hopling Education Center in Madrid and project management.

The first phase of the deployment of the designated cities will start in March this year, using the recently announced dual-radio Xnet Viper-M2 high-performance base stations. The Xnet Viper-M2 dual-radio base station offers superior features for network operators and wireless internet service providers. Wireless Mesh changes the way people experience communications and enables freedom in mobile information, social networking, interaction and user-generated content. Hopling Technologies’ standard-based base station technology delivers high-speed voice, data and internet connectivity in the licensed and unlicensed spectrum for mobile applications.

In Eastern Europe, and other digital divide areas, often the capacity of switched lines is not enough to reach the major part of the population. In this particular case the citywide wireless networks function as mass medium for internet. Mesh networks solutions for wireless internet access, based on Hopling Technologies’ flagship product the Xnet Viper series, have proven their merits in providing outdoor coverage in metropolitan areas. Mesh networks entail connecting clusters of base stations providing a seamless –no wires needed- broadband network for laptop and PDA users.

The aspiration of the EVD's Programme Cooperation Emerging Markets (PSOM) is to stimulate education and economic activity, the latter both for Dutch companies as well as abroad. This way PSOM generates a significant boost by the expansion of the telecommunication infrastructure in these cities.

“This agreement is an example of how Hopling Technologies complements the requirements of municipalities and meets the strict objectives of the Dutch government,” said Marinus Koppe, Vice President Channel Sales of Hopling Technologies.

“Hopling Technologies is pleased to have been recognized for its global reach and its commitment to providing flexible, reliable, quality wireless broadband solutions,” said Frank Koopman, Chief Executive Officer of Hopling Technologies. “We look forward to be working with the EVD as we market and deploy wireless metropolitan networks throughout Eastern Europe.”

Through the Agency for International Business and Cooperation (EVD), the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs facilitates and stimulates international activities of companies, governments and organizations (
