Green Hills Software DSO Solution Chosen by ArrowSpan to Develop Industry’s First Dual-Radio Wi-Fi Mesh Network Access Point

SANTA BARBARA, CA — June 12, 2006 – Green Hills Software Inc., the technology leader in device software optimization (DSO) and real-time operating systems (RTOS), and ArrowSpan, Inc., a developer and manufacturer of next-generation WiFi wireless mesh network solution, today announced that Arrowspan has chosen the Green Hills MULTI integrated development environment (IDE) and the INTEGRITY real-time operating system (RTOS) to develop highly optimized, ground breaking embedded systems for their MeshAP 2100/1100 Dual-Radio Wi-Fi Mesh Network Access Point. The Green Hills’ solution allowed for the use of less memory and a lower power CPU than the alternative Linux solution, providing scalability to very high volumes with the same HW/SW platform.

ArrowSpan is the first company to provide Dual-Radio 802.11g Wi-Fi Mesh Network Access Point in the market, minimizing the co-channel interference created by single channel design. The Dual-Radio design enables Service Providers to deploy ArrowSpan solution with higher reliability and hop counts, saving tremendous costs and time for deployment. The MeshAP 2100/1100 benefits users with an easy setup that requires no additional software for managing the mesh network. Both products are highly compatible with legacy network devices on existing network infrastructures.

“We are pleased that ArrowSpan has chosen Green Hills for the development of their ground breaking new technology,” commented Dan O’Dowd, founder and chief executive officer of Green Hills Software. “With our industry leading DSO solutions, ArrowSpan has been able to bring their new products faster and with higher quality to market.”

ArrowSpan’s MeshAP 2100/1100 products are used to expand internet hotspots to a hot zone wirelessly. Mesh network can be easily deployed wireless without pulling physical wires, providing excellent infrastructure devices for city-wide wireless internet services, campus-wide data networks, and hospitality Wi-Fi guest services. Typical users include Wireless Internet Service Providers (WISP), Telco Carriers and Network Operators.

“Green Hills Software’s MULTI IDE and INTEGRITY RTOS were instrumental helping our developers achieve highly compact and efficient code for our products,” said Max Lu, president and chief executive officer of ArrowSpan. “A very important factor for our selection of Green Hills Software was their strength in providing the highest security and reliability, which are essential for our mesh network products.”

ArrowSpan’s MeshAP 2100/1100 products were initially announced in January 2006. They are currently under evaluation by several customers. The MeshAP 2100/1100 products are planned for availability through ArrowSpan’s direct sales channel in the second quarter of 2006.
