Westell Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: WSTL), a global leader of intelligent site
and outside plant solutions, will be launching Apple^® iOS and Android^TM
mobile applications for the Kentrox^® Optima Management System^® in January

Field technicians and Network Operations Center (NOC) users need a complete
view and control of their networks from anywhere. The new Optima mobile
applications allow easy access to monitor the functionality of site
infrastructure from virtually any iOS and Android device. Power, security,
communications, and environmental management are critical applications that

improved ease of use and accessibility.

The Optima mobile applications, developed on native iOS and Android operating
systems, feature the following:

  *Access to and a comprehensive view of the entire network and site
    information from virtually anywhere
  *Monitoring of critical fault and performance data including real-time
    status, alarms, and measurements
