Globalstar And Jarvinian Successfully Complete Initial Testing Of Terrestrial Low Power Service (TLPS) Using Ruckus Wireless Smart Wi-Fi Technology

COVINGTON, La., June 10, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Globalstar Inc., a leading provider of mobile satellite voice and data services, announced the completion of Jarvinian's testing of TLPS, an innovative wireless broadband technology using new carrier-grade equipment manufactured by Ruckus Wireless, Inc. (NYSE:RKUS), a global supplier of advanced wireless systems for the rapidly expanding mobile Internet infrastructure market.

The Jarvinian tests demonstrate that deploying a managed 802.11-compliant technology over Globalstar's licensed spectrum with adjacent unlicensed ISM spectrum results in a carrier-grade service that vastly exceeds the performance of public Wi-Fi.  All tests were performed over a new 22 MHz channel within the 2.4 GHz band using carrier-grade equipment manufactured by Ruckus Wireless and existing smartphones that were enabled to operate over the new channel via a remote firmware upgrade. These tests also demonstrated how quickly and efficiently TLPS can be deployed to expand the nation's wireless capacity to address the looming exhaustion of existing Wi-Fi spectrum.

All tests were conducted pursuant to experimental licenses issued by the Federal Communications Commission. The Commission is considering Globalstar's November 2012 petition to use its licensed MSS spectrum terrestrially to support mobile broadband applications throughout the United States. "We appreciate the work of the Federal Communications Commission's Office of Engineering and Technology in issuing the experimental licenses that we needed to test and prove the tremendous potential that this service holds for a mobile-driven public," said Jay Monroe, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Globalstar.

"The combination of the Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi equipment and TLPS exceeded our expectations for distance and capacity while not interfering or degrading the existing traffic on traditional Wi-Fi channels," said John Dooley, Jarvinian' s Managing Partner.  "Even in an indoor urban environment made difficult or otherwise unusable by spectral congestion, usable connections were established at 3-5x the distance of public Wi-Fi.  More critically, very high-speed connections were maintained much more uniformly and over significantly longer distances."
