AirNet Products -- AirNet Penetrates New Market Segment

Melbourne, FL, November 27, 2001 - AirNet® Communications Corporation (NASDAQ: ANCC), the technology leader in software defined base station products for wireless communications, today announced that TECORE Wireless Systems, a wireless communications and global systems integration company, has taken immediate delivery of approximately $1.5M of AirNet products which include the AdaptaCell Broadband, Software Defined base station and related wireless communications equipment. This order is the first step of a broader market penetration strategy for both AirNet and TECORE.

"AirNet's world-class solutions have enabled us to become successful in new markets that are different from our traditional markets," said Jay Salkini, president and CEO of TECORE. "Coupled with our world renowned AirCore switching system, we have found that AirNet's high capacity and cost effective base station solutions are the perfect fit for these markets."

TECORE's focus on networks under 100,000 subscribers has enabled it to become an industry leader in system integration around the world. TECORE's multi-function scalable solutions enable carrier-class, feature-rich communications capabilities that will be deployed as part of the solution for this new market.

"This order, which will be deployed with an end user outside of our traditional customer base, is a realization of our strategy announced during our third quarter conference call to penetrate new markets with our software-defined radio," said Glenn Ehley, president and CEO of AirNet.

The AirNet AdaptaCell is a broadband, software-defined solution that enables wireless operators to easily migrate to GPRS and EDGE using their existing AirNet base stations by simply upgrading software. Such upgrades can be performed remotely from a network control center, dramatically reducing the cost and time of deploying the solution. Moreover, the AirSite Backhaul Free Base Station provides an extremely cost-effective way to expand networks in secondary and low-density areas.
