5G Wireless Solutions Wins Dana Point Harbor, CA Contract with New Cellular-Style Base Station

Marina del Rey, CA – July 28, 2005 – 5G Wireless Solutions, Inc., an emerging leader in the wireless broadband industry and a wholly-owned portfolio company of 5G Wireless Communications, Inc. (OTCBB: FGWC), announced today that Cedarville University in Cedarville, OH has selected its Campus-Wide Area Networking™ (C-WAN) equipment package to provide integrated wireless networking both indoors and out.

“Cedarville will be the first university in the eastern U.S. to adopt our technology,” stated Jerry Dix, 5G Wireless Communications CEO. “For such a prestigious and sophisticated institution to have selected us over the competition is high praise.  Our ’outside/in.’ rooftop Base Stations had to go through a rigorous testing process to win this business, and we’re confident that our cellular approach to Wi-Fi is the best solution for this campus. 

After a thorough competitive evaluation process, the contract was awarded to 5G based upon its ability to provide nearly 100% coverage utilizing only two cellular-style, sectorized Base Stations. Other solutions would have required close to 100 individual Access Points, adding not only to initial capital equipment costs, but, more importantly, to ongoing operational expenses associated with administration and maintenance. An efficient and elegant solution, coupled with one of the lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) per sq. acre measures in the business, has become a hallmark of the 5G approach.

The 175 acre campus is home to over 3000 students and 280 faculty members. Cedarville is a nationally acclaimed Christian university located in southwestern Ohio, and was recently ranked in the top tier of regional colleges for the fourth consecutive year by U.S. News & World Report. The University has had a longstanding commitment to superior campus-wide networking technology, and is a recipient of the CAUSE Networking Award, bestowed by the international Educause educational technology association, in recognition of integration of networking technology into the instructional program of a college or university.  Based on a philosophy of making information ubiquitous, computers are available in every residence hall room and office. The underlying network, known as CedarNet, has been operational since 1992 through a partnership with IBM.

Campus usage studies have shown that over 95% of the faculty and student body use the network every day. Students and faculty have access to over 150 software choices via CedarNet, ranging from general packages like Microsoft Word to specific applications like human anatomy. Students, faculty, and staff use the CedarInfo section of CedarNet about 5,000 times a day for routine operations like registering for classes, checking grades, and signing up for payroll direct deposit.  One of the most popular areas of CedarNet is the library resources section, where students can access the library's on-line catalog, full-text newspapers and journals, periodical indexes, and application-specific databases.

The installation was sourced and is being managed by Springnet, a Dayton, Ohio-based WISP (Wireless Internet Service Provider), one of 5G’s regional channel marketing partners. “We’re already successfully using 5G equipment for other clients and applications here in the East and Midwest, and we’re confident it’s the very best package available for Cedarville’s needs today and in the future,” added Virgil Arnold, Springnet’s CEO.
