February 8, 2008 at 12:00 AM EST

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC, February 8, 2008 – Harris Stratex Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: HSTX), the leading independent supplier of turnkey wireless transmission solutions, will showcase its Eclipse™ Carrier Ethernet over Wireless™ transport solution in Hall 2-0, booth 2F27, at this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, from February 11-14.

At the show, Harris Stratex will highlight its ongoing participation in the multi-vendor Mobile Backhaul Interoperability Test and Showcase, organized by the European Advanced Networking Test Center (EANTC) and supported by both the IP/MPLS Forum and the Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF). Harris Stratex clearly demonstrates the ability of the Eclipse Carrier Ethernet over Wireless™ solution to support the functionality, performance and resilience required for tomorrow’s next-generation backhaul requirements by operating seamlessly within an MPLS, TMPLS and PBBTE network environment.

Eclipse supports side-by-side native transport of both TDM and Carrier Ethernet over the same link. This capability is essential for operators seeking a smooth, cost-effective migration path for existing mobile networks to support next-generation packet-based broadband applications. The Eclipse platform’s Liquid Bandwidth capability allows available capacity to be allocated to either voice or data traffic, purely through software control.

“Our attendance at the Mobile Work Congress underlines our commitment to the European market and our position as the world’s leading supplier of Carrier Ethernet backhaul solutions,” said Guy Campbell, chief executive officer and president, Harris Stratex Networks. “As one of the key events of the year, the show is a great backdrop to meet our customers and showcase the results from our recent participation in the Multi-Vendor Mobile Interoperability Showcase.”

At the show, Paul Kennard, Harris Stratex Networks’ chief technology officer and vice president, International Sales, will join other leading industry figures in a panel discussion to present the case for Carrier Ethernet over Wireless transport as the key solution for mobile network evolution. The panel takes place on Wednesday, February 13, from 11:40 to 13:10 in the Enablers (EN) stream.
