Large Medical Center in South Africa Delivers High-Bandwidth Data Using RADWIN's Wireless Network

TEL AVIV, Israel - RADWIN's Links Transfer Massive Amounts of Data & X-rays in Seconds Over Wireless Network

RADWIN (, the global provider of Backhaul and
Broadband Wireless Solutions, today announced that Jackpersad & Partners
Radiology Inc., a state-of-the-art radiology center serving hospitals and
clinics in the KwaZulu-Natal province of South Africa, deployed RADWIN's
wireless links. RADWIN's links create a wireless network for the transfer of
large data files such as X-ray images and patient records between the medical
center's branches and the head office. Fibretronic, RADWIN's distributor in
South Africa and First Technology, a leading system integrator based in South
Africa, were in charge of project implementation.

RADWIN's wireless network covers a geographical distance of over 600 Km
and connects remote medical branches by an extremely long link deployed over
95 Km. Fibretronic Sales, a RADWIN distributor based in South Africa,
together with First Technology, an Authorized RADWIN system integrator,
designed and implemented this privately owned wireless network which
currently runs over 40 RADWIN 2000 and WinLink 1000 radio links.

Dr I Hansrod, the Medical Director at the Jackpersad Radiology Center,
stated: "RADWIN's links have exceeded our expectations in terms of capacity,
security and robustness. The bandwidth provided by the wireless network has
been phenomenal and we are able to transfer massive amounts of data files and
x-ray images in seconds. It is a great setup and the first time that our
application is totally paperless."

Shaun Cothill of Fibretronic stated: "RADWIN's links have performed
flawlessly in both urban locations and remote areas since their installation,
delivering extremely high bandwidth to meet the radiology center's current
and emerging network needs. We are proud to be a part of this project and
have set a precedent for carrier class wireless backhaul."

Clinton Pillay of First Technology stated: "The implementation of
RADWIN's equipment was seamless and there is minimal maintenance and support,
securing a fantastic return on investment. First Technology is honored to be
affiliated with Fibretronic and RADWIN and foresees a long and fruitful
relationship ahead."

Hanoch Maskalchi, RADWIN's General Manager of EMEA, stated: "More and
more organizations today are deploying wireless networks in place of
traditional leased-lines for their connectivity needs. By choosing to go
wireless, organizations can eliminate the high recurring charges of leased
lines and they own and control their network connectivity."
