Uniting Indonesia Under One Wireless Broadband Umbrella

JAKARTA, Indonesia, November 23, 2010 - To encourage WiMAX(TM) growth in Indonesia,
ID-WiBB, an industry-led, not-for-profit organization formed to promote
national vision through the compatibility and interoperability of broadband
wireless products in Indonesia, announced today the launch of an Indonesian
broadband roaming facility to serve the many wireless broadband service
providers throughout the region.

This will enable roaming between WiMAX and Wi-Fi and possibly future LTE
operators, creating a unified 4G wireless network across the nation.

"Our goal is to encourage further wireless broadband adoption and growth
of the broadband ecosystem by establishing an automatic networked ID
authorization that will allow anyone - regardless of their service provider -
to tap in to the benefits of wireless broadband from anywhere, at anytime,"
said Kanaka Hidayat, ID-WiBB. "Today's announcement takes us one step closer
to uniting the Indonesian market under one wireless broadband umbrella."

To date, three operators awarded WiMAX derived Wireless Broadband
licenses in Indonesia have signed up to become roaming partners.

Aptilo Networks, the global leader in integrated solutions for control of
billing, user services and access in wireless networks including Wi-Fi, WiMAX
and LTE, has been selected by ID-WIBB to enable this multi-access roaming.

a AAA proxy for the authentication, authorization and accounting of roaming
users between the different WiMAX and Wi-Fi service providers. The Aptilo
solution will keep track of roaming subscribers' consumption of resources
(time and/or data) in any visiting network and provide the required
statistics to allow ID-WiBB to serve as a neutral accounting party. The
addition of LTE support to the Aptilo platform in 2011 will expand
opportunities for ID-WiBB for future revenue streams.
