HSINCHU, Taiwan, Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Alpha Networks Inc. (TAIEX:
3380), a global leader in the networking DMS industry, is proud to announce
the WHU-FAP10 WCDMA and Wi-Fi Small Cell . This newest small cell product from
Alpha Networks incorporates UltraSON™ self-organizing network technology
provided by Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. and Qualcomm Atheros, Inc.,
subsidiaries of Qualcomm Incorporated. This technology is designed to augment
network capacity and coverage through densification of WCDMA small cells,
thereby enhancing the end-user experience.

With users consuming increasing levels of bandwidth and causing insufficient
network capacity, resulting in weak signals and signal interference, global
telecommunication carriers are actively expanding mobile network
infrastructure to address these growing demands. Using the UltraSON solution,
Alpha Networks delivers the WHU-FAP10 product, which integrates WCDMA and
Wi-Fi into a single Access Point device that provides data off-load from the
macro network to localized small cells. The WHU-FAP10 is ready for operator

UltraSON features a suite of capabilities that support interference and
mobility management. UltraSON power management is designed to allow each
Femtocell to adapt its transmitted power to the RF environment, enabling good
coverage and minimizing signal pollution. UltraSON's resource and interference
management is crucial to the improvement of the user experience by
coordinating with the macro cells, balancing the traffic load and partitioning
the resource among multiple Femtocells.

"We are pleased to enable Alpha Networks with our advanced small cell
technologies," said Dan Rabinovitsj, senior vice president and general
manager, Qualcomm Atheros. "As more wireless operators employ small cells to
ease the strain placed on their stretched cellular networks, we are pleased
that Alpha Networks turned to Qualcomm Atheros and Qualcomm Technologies to
enhance the performance of its new WHU-FAP10 platform."

"In the past decade Alpha Networks has been sharing the in-depth insight from
the global telecoms market, while continuously staying tight with current and
future market trends. It is always the key competitive edge of Alpha to
provide superior software and hardware designs jointly under one roof." -
Harrison Chang, President of Alpha Networks.
