Sify Launches First-of-its-Kind WiMAX Solution with Mobility Features

Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India

Sify Limited (Nasdaq National Market: SIFY), a leader in consumer Internet and Enterprise Services in India with global delivery capabilities, today launched a first-of-its-kind WiMAX solution with Mobility features, with the deployment of Proxim Wireless Corporation's advanced wireless product.

Sify Limited has chosen and deployed Proxim's Tsunami MP.11 WiMAX product line as the core communications platform for last mile access using the 5.8 GHz frequency band. Sify has deployed over 700 Tsunami MP.11 base stations and 3,500 subscriber units to provide Internet access, voice and video broadband services to enterprise, residential and cybercafe subscribers in over 200 cities throughout India.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Bhaskar S, Chief Technology Officer, Sify Limited, said, "WiMAX is the future of Wireless Internet Communications especially in fast developing countries like India. With this launch, Sify has made a timely and strategic addition to its connectivity solutions portfolio. We are confident that this offering will enhance our customers' experience and help us cater to their fast growing wireless information needs."

Commenting on Sify's partnership with Proxim, Mr. Bhaskar said, "After testing and evaluating products from a number of manufacturers over a period of eight months, we chose Proxim's product line because the company met all our criteria, and its point-to-multipoint products offer the best packet processing capacity for last mile access."

"Sify's deployment is certainly a strong endorsement of our WiMAX technology and product line," said Lionel Chmilewsky, Senior Vice President- International, Proxim Wireless. "As India's premier provider of broadband access services, Sify is setting the standard for delivering the 'triple play' of voice, data and video to subscribers wherever they are located throughout the country. We are pleased and honoured to be their partner in this effort."

Drawing on Proxim's leadership in wireless and WiMAX, the Tsunami MP.11 product family of rugged base stations, indoor and outdoor subscriber units and accessories have been developed as a platform to enable WiMAX capabilities for license-free frequency bands. Awarded a 2006 Product Innovation Award by Frost & Sullivan for "Truly innovative WiMAX solutions", the Tsunami MP.11 Series supports converged video, voice and data transmission in both fixed and mobile applications.

The launch event took place today aboard a catamaran cruising through Mumbai's harbour off the Gateway of India with a live demonstration of a 3.3 Ghz based product of 802.16d WiMAX standard.
