Harris Stratex Networks Presented Top WiMAX Solutions Provider Award at Tenth Annual Voice&Data V&D100 Awards

Leading India-based telecom industry publication recognizes company's market leadership for second consecutive year

Harris Stratex Networks logoNEW DELHI, Aug. 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Harris Stratex Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ:HSTX) , a leading provider of wireless solutions that enable the evolution of next-generation fixed and mobile broadband networks, announced it was recognized by Voice&Data magazine as the top company in India's WiMAX equipment market at this year's tenth annual V&D100 Awards. According to Voice&Data's fiscal year 2008-2009 industry analysis, Harris Stratex led the WiMAX broadband infrastructure sector in India with an estimated 70 percent market share, maintaining its leadership from the previous year. Raj Kumar, Harris Stratex vice president of Asia, received the prestigious award at a ceremony held at ITC Maurya in New Delhi. Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) Chairman J. S. Sarma was the chief guest at the event.


The V&D100 awards were instituted in 2000 to honor leading players in the burgeoning telecom sector, and are considered the hallmark of the Indian telecom and information technology industry. The company rankings are derived from extensive surveys and market analysis by India's flagship Voice&Data telecommunications publication, and the research findings are published in the annual V&D100 survey. This year's survey covered more than 650 equipment and services companies.

Abrahim Ahmad, group editor for Voice&Data, said, "We congratulate Harris Stratex for their continued excellence and the definitive lead they maintain in the WiMAX space. It is our endeavor to recognize the companies who make the Indian telecom market so dynamic, disruptive and consumer centric. I am glad to note that India's telecom players managed to beat the macroeconomic slowdown -- one of the very few sectors or industries in the world to do so. This is also one of the Indian segments that is matching global standards and beating them on innovation, value, and profitability on incredibly low tariffs."

On accepting the award, Raj Kumar said, "This is a proud moment for us at Harris Stratex to be recognized as the leader in India's WiMAX market by Voice&Data for the second year in a row. We believe India's broadband growth is reaching an inflection point toward the much awaited broadband explosion. We see huge growth potential for this important market, which we entered through our recent acquisition of Telsima Corporation. We are dedicated to playing an instrumental role in the country's broadband revolution, and this award reinforces our commitment to excellence. We dedicate this award to our esteemed customers who have chosen our solutions to offer next-generation technology to Indian consumers and for their continuous support to our march toward innovation and execution."

Harris Stratex' market position in India reflects the company's continued leadership and commitment to critical projects in the country with India's top-ranking service providers, including Tata Communications and Reliance Infocomm. Earlier this month, the company announced it will supply India's first urban mobile WiMAX network providing WiMAX equipment to Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd. (BSNL).
