OPTION ADDS UNLIMITED CONNECTION TO TELENOR’S MOBILE BROADBAND SERVICE

BARCELONA, Spain – February 11 2008 - Option (Euronext: OPTI; OTC: OPNVY), the wireless technology company, today announced that Telenor has incorporated its Unlimited Connection software in Mobilt Bredbånd, the Norwegian operator’s mobile broadband service.

Unlimited Connection is the mobile-IP seamless handover solution from Option that enables laptops to switch automatically and seamlessly between mobile broadband - whether delivered over HSPA, UMTS or EDGE - and WiFi hot-spots or DSL to deliver the highest possible connection speeds to customers.

Telenor is implementing the Unlimited Connection at group level with the intention of making the advanced mobile broadband service in Norway available to affiliates worldwide, with imminent launches in Sweden and Denmark. From the second quarter of 2008, Telenor will also add Option’s iCON 225 USB wireless modem to its Mobilt Bredbånd range of devices.

Telenor launched mobile broadband over 3G UMTS in June 2007 and upgraded to 3.6 Mbps “Turbo 3G” HSDPA in November. With the help of Unlimited Connection, Mobilt Bredbånd now integrates Telenor’s HSPA, DSL and extensive WiFi hot-spot networks to offer an unrivalled user experience.

Authentication across different access technologies is handled automatically by EAP-SIM, eliminating the need for multiple log-ins. Network handovers are seamless and transparent to any applications being used by the customer. Where physical access is available, Unlimited Connection can also connect over DSL.

Unlimited Connection builds on Option’s ‘simplexity’ philosophy: exploiting software to make high technology simple and accessible. For users, clear and intuitive interfaces eliminate network and technological complexity to deliver easy access to information “anytime, anywhere”. Customisable user-interfaces, languages, profiles and service features empower operators to offer differentiated products and services.

Telenor (Oslo Stock Exchange: TEL) is Norway's largest telecommunications company and one of the fastest growing providers of mobile communications services worldwide. With ownership interests in 12 mobile operators across Europe and Asia, the group was serving 129 million mobile subscribers globally at the end of Q3 2007.

BARCELONA, Spain – February 11 2008 - Option (Euronext: OPTI; OTC: OPNVY), the wireless technology company, unveils three new wireless broadband devices at the Mobile World Congress 2008. The high performance yet easy to use HSPA devices continue Option’s long-standing commitment to ‘simplexity’ – making complex technologies simple and accessible to users.

Built around the four key wireless broadband segments of Home, Embedded, Professional and Consumer Solutions, Option’s booth (Stand 2C54 in Hall 2) demonstrates the company’s vision of ‘Anytime, Anywhere Easy Access to Information”.

The iCON 401, is a high performance and lightweight (only 40g) HSPA USB wireless modem, incorporating a micro SD memory card expansion slot. The stylish and innovative design, in which the antenna has been integrated into a cover that rotates to protect the USB interface, has been recognised in Germany’s prestigious iF Product Design Awards 2008. Additionally, by incorporating the antenna in the protective cover, Option has been able to increase the separation between the antenna and the PC to enhance performance and make the most of the Receive Diversity capability that optimises reception in fringe coverage areas. The full press release of this product announcement can be found at www.option.com/mwc.

The GT EXPRESS 401 data card is the world’s first compact ExpressCard-format data card to combine quad-band HSPA (900, 1900, AWS and 2100) with a fully integrated antenna system delivering professional performance in a slim line design. Built to achieve peak HSDPA download speeds of up to 7.2 Mbps with HSUPA uploads at up to 5.76 Mbps - depending on network and device firmware release – the compact ExpressCard format offers the best upload and download speeds available today. The full press release of this product announcement can be found at www.option.com/mwc .

Highlighting Option’s breadth of experience and expertise, the GTM382 is a new generation wireless broadband embedded module capable of achieving uplink data speeds of 5.76Mbps. This easy-to-integrate module allows manufacturers of computers and consumer electronics (OEMs) to add broadband WAN connectivity as well as an optional voice calling capability to consumer electronic devices, laptops and PDAs. Two leading OEMs - Fujitsu Siemens Computers and Samsung - are already developing new products incorporating the device. The full press release of this product announcement can be found at www.option.com/mwc .

All the new devices, iCON 401 – GT EXPRESS 401 – GTM382, incorporate multi-band HSPA and quad-band EDGE/GPRS to deliver global connectivity and benefit from Receive Diversity and Receive Equalisation. Patented ZeroCD™ technology makes Option’s USB modems and data cards truly plug-and-play: drivers, applications and manuals are automatically installed when the device is used for the first time.

The iCON 401, GT EXPRESS 401 and GTM382 are expected to ship in commercial volumes in the third quarter of 2008.

BARCELONA, Spain – February 11 2008 - Option (Euronext: OPTI; OTC: OPNVY), the wireless technology company, today announced the GT EXPRESS 401 data card, the world’s first compact ExpressCard-format data card to combine quad-band HSPA with a fully internal antenna system.

Designed as the ultimate wireless communication solution for European mobile professionals, the GT EXPRESS 401 operates in the core 2100 MHz 3G band and the 900 MHz spectrum that is beginning to migrate from GSM to 3G. Compatibility with both the 1900 MHz and Advanced Wireless Spectrum (AWS) 3G bands makes the device a powerful connectivity tool for professionals traveling to North America.

Designed to achieve peak HSDPA download speeds of up to 7.2 Mbps with HSUPA uploads at up to 5.76 Mbps - depending on network and device firmware release – the compact ExpressCard format offers the best upload and download speeds available today. Backward compatibility ensures GT EXPRESS 401 operates reliably and at the highest possible speed with earlier network standards: when 3G is not available, quad-band EDGE support ensures the best possible 2G connectivity.

The module’s Type 3 Advanced Receiver Technology (ART) also combines the benefits of Receive Diversity and Receive Equalization across all three HSPA bands to make the most of the module’s HSDPA 7.2 capability while backward compatibility sustains optimum performance when the host device is connecting over a 3.6 or 1.8 Mbps HSDPA, UMTS, EDGE or GPRS network.

Building on Option’s proven design values, the diversity antenna of this next-generation ExpressCard has been fully integrated within the device with no moving parts. Combining equalization with the improved dual antennas delivers Type 3 diversity and boosts receiver sensitivity for the best possible end user experience, especially in fringe coverage areas.

GT EXPRESS 401 is a truly unique Plug ’n Play solution: Option’s Zero-CD™ technology immediately and automatically installs drivers, applications and manuals when the card is inserted into a laptop for the first time. The optional GE005 Cardbus-Express Converter allows the GT EXPRESS 401 to be used in laptops equipped with the wider Cardbus interface.

The GT EXPRESS 401 is expected to ship in commercial volumes in the third quarter of 2008.

BARCELONA, Spain – February 11 2008 - Option (Euronext: OPTI; OTC: OPNVY), the wireless technology company, today announced a new generation embedded wireless module. The GTM382’s triple-band HSPA delivers data rates of up to 7.2 Mbps in the downlink and from 2 Mbps up to 5.76 Mbps in the uplink, creating opportunities for manufacturers of laptops and consumer electronics (OEMs) to develop products with faster uplink requirements such as video surveillance and file uploading. With upgradeable firmware, the GTM382 is the fastest embedded module available with its potential for future up-rating to 5.76 Mbps as networks upgrade.

Two leading OEM’s, Fujitsu Siemens Computers and Samsung, are already developing new products, including the full range of Fujitsu Siemens Computer's ESPRIMO Mobile notebooks, incorporating this new multimode PCI Express MiniCard, the GTM382.

The easy-to-integrate module allows OEMs to add broadband WAN connectivity as well as voice calling capability to consumer electronic devices, laptops and PDAs. Its support for HSDPA, HSUPA, UMTS, EDGE, GPRS and GSM, ensures that devices incorporating the module can be offered for sale in markets worldwide.

The multi-mode module is designed for worldwide markets covering 800-850/1900/2100 bands that allows the broadband performance of devices incorporating the GTM382 to be optimised for the spectrum allocations found in certain parts of the Americas and Japan while retaining the ability to roam on 3G networks across Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Africa.

The module’s Type 3 Advanced Receiver Technology (ART) also combines the benefits of Receive Diversity and Receive Equalization across all three HSPA bands to make the most of the module’s HSDPA 7.2 capability while backward compatibility sustains optimum performance when the host device is connecting over a 3.6 or 1.8 Mbps HSDPA, UMTS, EDGE or GPRS network.

Optional circuit switched voice capability over either GSM or UMTS, Assisted- and Standalone GPS and flexible driver design provide OEMs with a versatile platform for creativity and innovation. The module has been rigorously tested for interoperability with all major infrastructure manufacturers and comes with comprehensive certification.

 

The GTM382 embedded module is expected to ship in commercial volumes in the third quarter of 2008.

BARCELONA, Spain – February 11 2008 - Option (Euronext: OPTI; OTC: OPNVY), the wireless technology company, today unveiled the iCON401, an HSPA USB wireless modem incorporating a micro SD memory card expansion slot. The stylish and innovative design combined with the device’s superior performance have already been recognised by Germany’s prestigious iF Product Design Awards 2008.

Designed to meet the increasingly sophisticated connectivity needs for consumer and business customers alike, the iCON 401 delivers high performance in a sleek, attractive design. This winning combination of speed and performance delivers reliable anytime, anywhere connectivity.

Patent pending design innovations in the compact and lightweight (only 40g) iCON 401 include the incorporation of the antenna in the rotating cover that protects the USB interface, and a micro SD expansion slot.

By incorporating the antenna in the protective cover, Option has been able to increase the separation between the antenna and the PC to enhance performance and make the most of the Receive Diversity capability that optimises reception in fringe coverage areas.

The ability to add up to 8 GB of micro SD memory to the iCON 401 will facilitate the sharing of downloaded content with multimedia players and other consumer electronic devices, simplify the exchange of files between different PCs or the transfer of images between digital cameras and PC.

Incorporating triple-band HSPA and quad-band EDGE/GPRS, the iCON 401 is a flexible and easy-to-use data roaming solution that will allow travellers to access e-mail and the internet virtually anywhere in the world. On HSPA networks, the device offers data rates of up to 7.2 Mbps on the downlink, sufficient to download a typical MP3 music file in just five seconds, and 2 Mbps on the uplink.

The combination of superior performance, global connectivity, patented ZeroCD™ true plug-and-play installation and the flexibility offered by the micro SD expansion slot will appeal to small and medium enterprises, mobile professionals, corporate customers, consumers and vertical markets.

Germany’s iF Product Design awards have recognised outstanding achievements in design for more than fifty years. Entries are rigorously assessed against all facets of design best practice, including design quality, workmanship, material selection, innovation, environmental sustainability, functionality, ergonomics, safety, branding and brand value. The 2008 iF awards attracted 2771 entries in 13 categories: the iCON 401 was recognised in the computing category. As an iF Product Design award winner, the iCON 401 is a nominee for a 2008 iF Gold Award that will be presented on the opening day of CeBIT in Hannover on 4 March 2008.

The iCON 401 is expected to ship in commercial volumes in the third quarter of 2008.

BARCELONA, Spain – February 11 2008 - Option (Euronext: OPTI; OTC: OPNVY), the wireless technology company, today announced that the Company’s wireless devices have been selected by VimpelCom as the Russian operator builds its product portfolio of mobile broadband solutions.

The mobile operator recently introduced the iCON 7.2 USB modem, as well as the GT MAX and GT EXPRESS HSDPA wireless data cards for ‘prosumer’ and professional market segments.

The company operates in 78 regions with an aggregate population of 140 million in the rapidly expanding Russian market and has also been granted national licenses in Kazakhstan, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Georgia and Armenia.

Founded in 1992, VimpelCom deployed the first dual-band GSM900/1800 network in Russia, pioneered pre-pay services and became the first Russian company to list its shares on the New York Stock Exchange. Trading under the Beeline brand, the Group enjoyed customer growth of 18.9 per cent in the year to 30 September 2007,

ending the period with an active subscriber base totalling 50.7 million including 41.8 million in Russia.

BARCELONA, Spanje – 11 februari 2008 - Option (Euronext: OPTI; OTC: OPNVY), de specialist op het vlak van draadloze communicatie, heeft vandaag bekendgemaakt dat de Russische operator VimpelCom de draadloze toestellen van het bedrijf gekozen heeft om zijn productportfolio van mobiele breedbandoplossingen uitbreiden.

De mobiele operator introduceerde onlangs zowel de iCON 7,2 USB-modem, de GT MAX als de GT EXPRESS HSDPA draadloze datakaarten voor de ‘prosumer’- en professionele marktsegmenten. Deze backward compatibele quad-band EDGE-toestellen kunnen datasnelheden tot 274 kbps leveren op de bestaande 2G- netwerken, en laat Russische reizigers in het buitenland profiteren van 3G of HSUPA waar beschikbaar.

De toestellen, de verpakking, de applicatiesoftware en de handleidingen worden aangepast om binnen het Beeline-merk van Vimpelcom te passen en om te voldoen aan de lokale taalbehoeften.

De VimpelCom Groep heeft GSM- en 3G-licenties die een bevolking van ongeveer 250 miljoen mensen dekken. Het bedrijf is actief in 78 regio’s, biedt 140 miljoen mensen uitstekende verbindingen in de snel uitbreidende Russische markt en kreeg ook nationale licenties in Kazakstan, Oekraïne, Oezbekistan, Tadzjikistan, Georgië en Armenië.

VimpelCom werd opgericht in 1992 en activeerde het eerste dual-band GSM900/1800-netwerk in Rusland, bood als eerste voorafbetaalde diensten aan en werd het eerste Russische bedrijf dat zijn aandelen op de New York Stock Exchange noteerde. De groep, die zaken doet onder het Beeline-merk, kende in 2007 (tot 30 september) een klantengroei van 18,9 % in 2007 en sloot deze periode af met een actieve abonneebasis van 50,7 miljoen, inclusief 41,8 miljoen mensen in Rusland.

BARCELONA, Spanje – 11 februari 2008 – Option (Euronext: OPTI; OTC: OPNVY), de specialist op het vlak van draadloze communicatie, maakte vandaag bekend dat Telenor haar Unlimited Connection software geïntegreerd heeft in Mobilt Bredbånd, de mobiele breedbandservice van de Noorse operator.

Unlimited Connection is de naadloze mobiele-IP-overgangsoplossing van Option die ervoor zorgt dat laptops automatisch en probleemloos schakelen tussen mobiele breedbandnetwerken – hetzij geleverd via HSPA, UMTS of EDGE – en WiFi-hotspots of DSL om de klanten zo de hoogst mogelijke verbindingssnelheden te leveren.

Telenor implementeert de Unlimited Connection in de hele groep met de bedoeling de geavanceerde mobiele breedbanddienst die reeds in Noorwegen geïntroduceerd werd, beschikbaar te maken voor alle filialen wereldwijd. Er staan lanceringen op stapel in Zweden en Denemarken. In het tweede kwartaal van 2008 zal Telenor ook de iCON 225 USB-draadloze modem van Option toevoegen aan haar gamma Mobilt Bredband-toestellen.

Telenor lanceerde in juni 2007 mobiele breedband via 3G UMTS en schakelde in november over op 3,6 Mbps “Turbo 3G” HSDPA. Met de hulp van Unlimited Connection, integreert Mobilt Bredbånd nu HSPA, DSL en de uitgebreide WiFi-hotspotnetwerken van Telenor om een ongeëvenaarde gebruikerservaring aan te kunnen bieden.

De authenticatie langs verschillende toegangstechnologieën gebeurt automatisch door EAP-SIM, waardoor verschillende logins overbodig worden. De netwerkovergangen zijn naadloos en transparant voor elke applicatie die gebruikt wordt door de consument. Als er fysieke toegang beschikbaar is, kan Unlimited Connection ook via DSL verbinding maken.

Unlimited Connection is gebaseerd op de ‘simplexity’-filosofie van Option: software gebruiken om hoogwaardige technologie eenvoudig en toegankelijk te maken. Voor de gebruikers elimineren duidelijke en intuïtieve interfaces de netwerk- en technologische complexiteit om gemakkelijk ‘anytime, anywhere’ toegang te bieden tot informatie. De aanpasbare gebruikersinterfaces, talen, profielen en servicekenmerken stellen de operators in staat om gedifferentieerde producten en diensten aan te bieden.

Telenor (Oslo Stock Exchange: TEL) is het grootste telecommunicatiebedrijf in Noorwegen en een van de snelst groeiende leveranciers van mobiele communicatiediensten wereldwijd. Met eigendomsrechten in 12 mobiele operators in Europa en Azië, telde de groep op het einde van het derde kwartaal in 2007 129 miljoen mobiele abonnees over de hele wereld.

BARCELONA, Spanje – 11 februari 2008 - Option (Euronext: OPTI; OTC: OPNVY), de specialist op het vlak van draadloze communicatie, kondigde drie nieuwe draadloze breedbandtoestellen aan op het Mobile World Congress 2008. De hoogwaardige en gebruiksvriendelijke HSPA-toestellen zetten het lang gevestigde engagement van Option voor 'simplexity' voort – complexe technologie gemakkelijk en toegankelijk maken voor gebruikers.

De stand van Option (Stand 2C54 in Hall 2) is gebouwd rond de vier belangrijkste draadloze breedbandsegmenten: Home, Embedded, Professional en Consumer Solutions en demonstreert de visie van het bedrijf, ‘Altijd en overal gemakkelijk toegang tot informatie'.

 

De iCON 401, een lichtgewicht (slechts 40 g) draadloze HSPA USB-modem met superieure prestaties, integreert een expansiepoort voor een microSD-geheugenkaart. Het elegante en innovatieve design, waarbij de antenne geïntegreerd werd in een cover die draait om de USB-interface te beschermen, werd bekroond door de prestigieuze Duitse iF Product Design Awards 2008. Door de antenne in te bouwen in de beschermende cover, kon Option de scheiding tussen de antenne en de pc verhogen om de prestaties te verbeteren en de Receive Diversity capaciteit te verbeteren die de ontvangst op plaatsen waar het bereik moeilijk wordt optimaliseert. Het volledige persbericht van deze productaankondiging vindt u op www.option.com/mwc.

De GT EXPRESS 401 datacard is ‘s werelds eerste datacard in ExpressCard-formaat die quad-band HSPA (900, 1900, AWS en 2100) handig combineert met een volledig ingebouwd antennesysteem dat professionele prestaties levert in een compact design. Ontworpen om maximale HSDPA-downloadsnelheden van 7,2 Mbps te behalen met HSUPA-uploads tot 5.76 Mbps – afhankelijk van het netwerk en de firmwareversie van het toestel – biedt de compacte ExpressCard de beste upload- en downloadsnelheden die vandaag beschikbaar zijn. Het volledige persbericht van deze productaankondiging vindt u op www.option.com/mwc.

De GTM382, die de brede ervaring en knowhow van Option onderstreept, is een nieuwe generatie draadloze breedbandinbouwmodule, die datasnelheden van 5,76 Mbps op de uplink kan leveren. De gemakkelijk te integreren module stelt de fabrikanten van computers en consumentenelektronica (OEM’s) in staat om een WAN-breedbandverbinding en een voice-functie toe te voegen aan laptops, PDA’s en andere consumentenelektronica. Twee toonaangevende OEM’s – Fujitsu Siemens Computers en Samsung – ontwikkelen reeds nieuwe producten die het toestel integreren. Het volledige persbericht van deze productaankondiging vindt u op www.option.com/mwc.

Alle nieuwe producten, iCON 401- GT EXPRESS 401 - GTM 382, integreren multi-band HSPA en quad-band EDGE/GPRS om een universele verbinding te leveren en te profiteren van de Receive Diversity en Receive Equalisation. De gepatenteerde ZeroCD™-technologie maakt van de USB-modems en datakaarten van Option echte Plug-and-Play-installaties: drivers, applicaties en handleidingen worden automatisch geïnstalleerd wanneer het toestel voor de eerste keer gebruikt wordt.

De iCON 401, GT EXPRESS 401 en GTM382 zullen in het derde kwartaal van 2008 in volume op de markt verkrijgbaar zijn.
