Affinegy Previews Digital Home Extensions to InstaLAN at CableLabs(R) Summer Conference 2005.

KEYSTONE, Colo. -- Affinegy, LLC, a software developer of easy and secure wireless and broadband networking solutions headquartered in Austin, Texas, today announced its latest release of InstaLAN(TM) with digital home extensions and is demonstrating a preview version here at the CableLabs(R) Summer Conference 2005

Affinegy's InstaLAN software delivers to broadband service subscribers a truly simple home network setup and management experience. InstaLAN makes it easy for even the most novice end user to self install and configure the required equipment. InstaLAN automatically secures all wireless communication links within the home network so the subscriber's privacy is protected. InstaLAN also provides an ideal solution for professional installers of advanced data services using the same process across multiple adapters, computers and operating systems; reducing training costs, installation time and improving accuracy.

InstaLAN delivers the easiest way to scale advanced home networking deployments -- the whole home network can be set up wirelessly; no new outlets need to be installed; no truck rolls are required. After setup, the subscriber enjoys a robust broadband service experience throughout his house. InstaLAN's network manager automatically connects a subscriber to his home network and features self-repair agents that resolve connection problems and avoid costly service calls.

Affinegy's latest release, InstaLAN Premium extends the InstaLAN product family by adding, among other enhanced features, automatic discovery and configuration of wireless peripherals such as gaming adapters, media receivers, and wireless web cams. In just a few, quick and intuitive steps, subscribers are able to create a secure digital home network that enhances their data network experience to support multi-player online gaming, whole home media sharing, and remote monitoring services.

"InstaLAN Premium enables broadband service providers to profitably deliver a whole new suite of revenue-generating services," said Melissa Simpler, Affinegy's CEO. "These advanced broadband services not only fuel our customer's top line revenue growth, but are the type of services that create loyal customers and lessen the rate of churn in today's highly competitive broadband service market."

InstaLAN is in deployment today by North American cable operators for self-install and professionally installed deployment of home networking services. InstaLAN Premium will be commercially available in the fourth quarter of 2005.
