MOUGINS, France and BARCELONA, Spain, February 14, 2011 - 3Roam, the innovator in advanced networking solutions for high-capacity
wireless backhaul, today announces AERO, its full-outdoor high-capacity
microwave switch, for Service Providers looking for the rapid and easy
interconnection of remote cell sites.

AERO provides 400 Mbps capacity in a single outdoor equipment in the
licensed bands from 6 to 38 GHz. It supports Ethernet connectivity to e-Node
B, IP base stations, and enables lightweight capacity upgrade for existing
TDM sites through 3Roam's Hybrid-WLS gateway. Integrating both radio and
carrier switching capabilities into a compact top-of-the-mast unit, AERO
removes the need for shelters, air-conditioning and additional switch /
router traditionally needed at cell-site for point-to-point microwave
interconnection, reducing drastically CAPEX and OPEX without performance

AERO further improves cell-site savings and network uptime thanks to the
Industry's highest radio system gain, combined with a zero-downtime Adaptive
Coding and Modulation allowing for smaller antennas and superior link

AERO incorporates 3Roam's latest advanced Ethernet switch to meet
Operators' strong requirements for traffic protection and Quality of Service
management for the transport of voice, data and video and combines with
3Roam's WLS split-mount product line for Gigabit-class traffic aggregation to
the network. "AERO is the additional solution into 3Roam's existing portfolio
for Operators to meet today's requirements for high capacity and low-OPEX
solutions," declares Jean-Paul Deschamps, CEO of 3Roam, "In today's limited
growth and cost-constrained environment, Operators can't afford to be kept
away by traditional vendors from the savings and refinements allowed by
advanced IP solutions."

With a power consumption as low as 40 W, AERO is easily powered with a
small-size solar panel, in regions with no access to the grid and is
therefore ideally suited for deployment in African and Middle-East countries.

3Roam also provides 3View(TM), its Network Management System, providing
support for AERO and WLS systems monitoring and management.

AERO will debut on 3Roam's booth at the Mobile World Congress in
Barcelona, Spain, February 14-17, 2011, Hall 2, French Pavilion 2F49.
