Company Announces Successful Deployment of ResponSphere Emergency Infrastructure

MARINA DEL REY, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 24, 2006 -- 5G Wireless Communications Inc. (OTCBB: FGWI), a leader in the wireless broadband industry, today announced the successful deployment of ResponSphere, a campus-level experimental IT infrastructure at the University of California, Irvine (UCI) created to test the boundaries of communications technologies in the face of man-made or natural disasters. 5G Wireless is providing the 802.11b/g wireless infrastructure to the project, which includes partners from academia, government, and the private sector.

UCI researchers developed the multidisciplinary ResponSphere to serve as a test bed for researching the ways that communications technologies can improve the productivity, reliability and integrity of first responders in a variety of crisis situations. 5G Wireless is one of several private sector partners. Other participants include AMD (NYSE: AMD), Boeing, Canon (NYSE: CAJ), Microsoft and IBM (NYSE: IBM).

"We were thrilled to be included in this extremely important initiative when we first engaged in the ReponSphere project and we're even more pleased with the results -- we've gotten great feedback from UCI on our equipment's fidelity and we are proud to be part of a project that we believe will produce incredibly helpful research that will ultimately help to save lives in an emergency," says Jerry Dix, CEO.

"ResponSphere provides a platform where we and our many industry partners can test new software and hardware technologies," says Christopher Davison, ResponSphere Technology Manager. "We created Responsphere as an IT infrastructure for the unexpected. It serves as an open systems proving grounds for testing and verification of disruptive technologies."
