Dubai, November 8, 2006 C Green Packet, a leading global developer of next generation mobile broadband networking solutions, today announced its participation at GULFCOMMS 2006, the Middle East's largest telecommunications technology event. Through the event, Green Packet aims to introduce its innovative, industry leading products and solutions to leading technology adopters in the fast maturing Middle East telecom market.

Green Packet offers an extensive range of flexible and scalable solutions for carriers, mobile enterprises and mobile workgroups through a technology that is integral and critical to the entire wireless value chain. Among the key carrier-grade solutions are SONaccess Unified Mobility Solution and SONmetro Wireless Broadband System.

The SONaccess Unified Mobility Solution enables mobile operators to reduce churn and increase service opportunities through seamless roaming. With a weakening global ARPU (Average Revenue Per User), seamless roaming increases subscriber convenience by simplifying user connection and eliminating the needs to reconnect. With always-on connectivity, service providers can continually push fee-based services to subscribers while they seamlessly move from one network coverage to another.

Puan Chan Cheong, CEO of Green Packet said, The Middle East is a region that holds a lot of promise for Green Packet and is part of our strategic growth plan. Countries in the region are showing very high mobile penetration levels and the user base is also getting increasingly sophisticated, demanding new and innovative offerings and services. We believe this is the right time for service providers to look at adopting our innovative solutions and technologies to attract as well as retain customers more effectively and at the same time grow their business.

On the other hand, revolutionary SONmetro enables the deployment of high performance wireless broadband services across large geographical areas C an ideal solution for service providers to deliver cost effective and high speed broadband wireless services on a metropolitan wide basis.

According to the International Telecommunication Union, broadband subscription in Arab States is merely reaching one percent. Currently, a 256Kbps Internet connection in Saudi Arabia already costs between USD113 to USD144 per user per month and were confident that SONmetro is the right solution to meet the growing demand for this market, Puan added.

Listed on the Malaysian Exchange of Securities Dealing & Automated Quotations (MESDAQ) market of Bursa Malaysia in May 2005, Green Packet is the most profitable and has the largest market capitalization of more than USD 460 millions amongst companies listed on this technology market as of November 2, 2006. Already, it counts several major telecommunication operators, original equipment manufacturers and enterprises within its clientele. These include China Telecom Group, Maxis Communications Bhd, Far EasTone Telecommunications Co Ltd, Chunghwa Telecom Co Ltd, Dell, BenQ, NEC, HP and many others. Green Packet has replicated its successful business model in other regions.
