HILLSBORO, Ore. -- March 27, 2013

Radisys^® Corporation (NASDAQ:RSYS), a market leader enabling wireless
infrastructure solutions, and Rivada Networks, a leading public safety
communications company, today announced that Radisys’ complete end-to-end LTE
network solutions and Professional Services have enabled Rivada Networks’
Dynamic Spectrum Arbitrage (DSA) innovation. DSA, developed for the public
safety market, is the first solution to enable the allocation of excess
spectrum resources to other network providers on a real-time basis. For the
standards-based network, Radisys leveraged its award-winning Trillium^®
TOTALeNodeB^™ and Evolved Packet Core (EPC) software, carrier-grade COM
Express platform and Professional Services. Radisys is the only company with
hardware, software and LTE integration expertise all in-house, enabling the
delivery of a pre-integrated solution that reduced Rivada’s integration risk
and time to market significantly.

“Rivada Networks has opened a new chapter in the history of public safety
communications,” said Declan Ganley, CEO, Rivada Networks. “Dynamic Spectrum
Arbitrage unlocks the potential for supply and demand economics to bolster the
quality and coverage of wireless broadband services. The technology is a
market-changing breakthrough with serious potential to improve cellular
communication networks and public safety communications capabilities, and our
collaboration with Radisys has enabled us to bring this exciting technology to
market.”

The U.S. public safety market is evolving rapidly with the introduction of LTE
networks. The industry is transitioning to a combination of private and public
networks, all with available spectrum that often goes unused. Rivada’s DSA
innovation allows unused spectrum to be easily reallocated across networks to
where it’s needed most by combining prioritization of users on the network
with a real-time auctioning process. Deployment of DSA will lead to a new
approach in how network operators use and charge for their network resources.
Operators will be able to apply varying levels of priority to every user on
the network and charge users based on demand, opening up the market for
innovative business models. Radisys is providing the test network to
demonstrate the viability of this industry-first solution.

“We’ve developed a ground-breaking technology that enables operators to loan
out their unused spectrum to other overloaded networks, thereby enabling
efficient spectrum use for the public safety industry,” said Clint Smith, CTO,
Rivada Networks. “We invest significantly in R&D activities annually and DSA
development has been a flagship research project for Rivada. Only Radisys was
able to help us bring this technology to market with its unique ability to
deliver a complete standards-based network and real-world LTE expertise to get
us from DSA theory to a working network on a tight timeline and with minimized
risk.”

Radisys built the network using its field-proven, standards-compliant LTE
solutions and ruggedized COM Express modules. It includes LTE eNodeB, Mobility
Management Entity, Packet Gateway and Serving Gateway, ensuring
interoperability across the network.

“Rivada turned to Radisys because it needed a fast, standards-based solution
to productize its spectrum sharing concept,” said Todd Mersch, senior director
product line management, Software and Solutions, Radisys. “Our Professional
Services team is at the forefront of LTE technology innovation, and was able
to work closely with Rivada Networks’ R&D department, quickly grasping the
concept and delivering an end-to-end LTE network that met all requirements. We
are the only company that has in-house all of the necessary hardware, software
and services to deliver a pre-integrated solution, completely eliminating our
clients’ integration challenges of schedule and cost overruns.”
