HILLSBORO, Ore. -- February 12, 2013

Radisys^® Corporation (NASDAQ: RSYS), a market leader enabling wireless
infrastructure solutions, and Airspan, a leading provider of broadband
wireless access networks, today announced the development of the world’s first
commercial LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) small cell solution. As subscribers continue
to demand more bandwidth and coverage, LTE-A enables operators to take
advantage of increased aggregate throughput, enhanced cell edge performance,
and better interference mitigation and spectrum reuse. Radisys and Airspan
will be demonstrating the LTE-A small cell solution at Mobile World Congress,
February 25-28 in Barcelona.

Airspan’s LTE-A capable AirSynergy 4G leverages Radisys’ Trillium^®
TOTALeNodeB^™ small cell software, which has been enhanced to include key
LTE-A features. AirSynergy 4G is an all-in-one compact outdoor Pico Base
Station supporting LTE-Advanced. Radisys and Airspan augmented TOTALeNodeB
with key LTE-A features including soft-frequency re-use via distributed eICIC,
Almost Blanking Subframe and range extension.

“Radisys is our long-time, trusted partner as we’ve leveraged the company’s
Trillium software and professional services for our small cell and macrocell
products,” said Paul Senior, CTO, Airspan. “Collaborating on the first
LTE-Advanced small cell solution is a natural extension of this partnership.
Leveraging Trillium TOTALeNodeB for AirSynergy 4G accelerates our ability to
be first to market.”

“Our Trillium TOTALeNodeB solution has won many industry awards, but our
professional services team is just as critical in enabling Airspan’s rapid
market entry,” said Manish Singh, CTO, Radisys. “Our highly skilled team works
with Airspan on feature customization and platform integration and
verification, ensuring state-of-the-art technology solutions. We’re excited to
partner with Airspan on the first commercial LTE-A small cell solution.”

Radisys’ Trillium TOTALeNodeB software includes the necessary Radio Resource
Management (RRM), Self-Organizing Network (SON) and Operations and Maintenance
(O&M) functionality required for rapid deployment, and is built on top of the
proven Trillium LTE protocol stacks. It provides Telecom Equipment
Manufacturers with a complete, integrated LTE eNodeB that is verified across
the leading small cell system on a chip (SoC) platforms from Radisys’ premier
silicon partners.
