MAGINET & LUCENT FORM ALLIANCE FOR BROADBAND WIRELESS INTERNET CONNECTIVITY.

MagiNet Corp. and Lucent Technologies announced the formation of an alliance in bringing to market a powerful Wireless Internet access solution enabling laptop users "Internet Anywhere."

The combination of MagiNet Laptop Connect (MLC) Broadband WLAN (Wireless Local Area Network) and Lucent's ORiNOCO suite of products enable international business travelers to benefit from a powerful, high-speed, "plug-and-play" and "always on" network solution. The service will be available in public spaces, including airports, convention centers, and anywhere in a hotel, including the guestroom meeting and conference spaces, the lobby, lounges, even poolside for all those mobile business professionals equipped with 802.1lb-compliant PC cards.

Powered by Lucent's ORiNOCO PC cards, Access Points and Range Extender Antennas, MLC Broadband WLAN will provide access at up to 11Mbps, about 200 times faster than dial-up connectivity services and comparable to corporate wired networks.

Business travelers using Lucent's ORiNOCO Wireless PC Cards and MLC Broadband WLAN will enjoy:

* High-speed data transmission for large files;

* Mobility-based productivity increases;

* A standards-based solution supported by major PC and networking vendors;

* The ability to use standard laptops, browsers and applications;

* Tighter security than with traditional wired networks through the "wired equivalent privacy" (WEP) encryption algorithms and military-invented spread-spectrum radio transmission techniques; and

* Ease of use.
