LAS VEGAS, Oct. 21, 2013

LAS VEGAS, Oct. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Ubiquiti Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ:
UBNT) ("Ubiquiti") today introduced its next-generation airMAX®, airFiber™ and
EdgeMAX™ products, which will enable wireless Internet service providers
(WISPs) to provide broadband Internet access to millions of homes and
businesses—many for the first time. Ubiquiti also announced the beta release
of the Ubiquiti World Network™, an alliance of WISPs that will help incite
even greater growth for fixed wireless broadband. The announcements were made
at WISPAPALOOZA 2013 held last week in Las Vegas.

With Ubiquiti's next-gen product line up and Ubiquiti World Network™, WISPs
will be able to leverage the company's fixed wireless access technologies to
grow their capacity, reach previously inaccessible geographies, provide
competitive service packages, and reduce installation time.

"We believe fixed wireless access technology is among the most cost effective
and capital-efficient ways to bring Internet connectivity to underserved
communities around the world," said Robert J. Pera, CEO at Ubiquiti Networks.
"With our next-generation infrastructure platform, our WISP customers can tap
into a large, high growth market that is uniquely positioned to help close the
digital divide and create greater social equality."

In a recent study conducted by research firm IDC, Fixed Wireless Access:
Global and Regional Market Opportunity, it was estimated that fixed wireless
access is growing at 21.8% CAGR through 2017, making it one of the
fastest-growing broadband access technologies and the most viable alternative
to cable, DSL, fiber and satellite. This growth represents a projected $5.9B
service revenue opportunity for service providers in 2014.

Ubiquiti's innovative technology and disruptive pricing combine to make fixed
wireless broadband an increasingly attractive technology for Internet
connectivity. Fixed wireless connections have a rapid ROI for operators, do
not require 'last mile' trenching or cabling, and can be deployed in areas
with limited infrastructure.

Ubiquiti's latest cutting-edge advancements include:

airMAX®: A leading platform for point-to-multipoint and point-to-point fixed
wireless access (typically used to provide 'last mile' broadband Internet
access to home and businesses);

Introducing the Ubiquiti World Network

In the recent 'State of Broadband Connectivity' survey conducted by Research
Now and commissioned by Ubiquiti, it was estimated that 61% of US citizens in
rural areas believe there aren't enough broadband providers in their area that
offer wide enough variety of choices for competitive services and price
performance. The report also points to a lack of awareness among subscribers
of emerging alternatives, such as fixed wireless, which only 19% recognize as
an option. While there are thousands of WISPs in the US and tens of thousands
globally, many providers are local/regional and lack the brand awareness of
larger, national providers.

To address these specific findings, Ubiquiti has unveiled the Ubiquiti World
Network™ (beta), a global alliance of individual wireless Internet service
providers working toward a single vision that leverages a unified technology
platform, sales and marketing assets, advertising, and political advocacy to
help foster growth and innovation among WISPs. During the beta phase, WISPs
will be able to join the Ubiquiti World Network™, describe their service plans
and geographical coverage, and access co-branded marketing tools developed by
Ubiquiti. Consumers will be invited to use the Ubiquiti World Network™ to more
easily discover wireless broadband providers in their area. WISPs can sign up
