Network-1's patent infringement litigation against D-Link Systems Inc. and

Company's Remote Power Patent is proceeding on a timely basis in the United
States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, Tyler Division. A
Markman hearing will be held on September 19, 2006 and a trial is set for

The Remote Power Patent relates to, among other things, the delivery of
power over Ethernet cables in order to remotely power network connected
devices including, among others, wireless switches, wireless access points,
RFID card readers, VOIP telephones and network cameras. In June 2003, the
Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) approved the IEEE

the rapid adoption of PoE. According to industry analysts, annual revenues for
several of the markets adopting this technology each exceed or are projected
to exceed $1 billion.
