quarter of 2010 in Europe, will be available in the North American market
starting in the fourth quarter of this year. Siklu will also be exhibiting the
EtherHaul at the 4G World conference and expo in Chicago in October.

North America. Operators are challenged to provide sufficient backhaul capacity
to support mobile broadband applications, and nowhere is this challenge more
acute than in congested urban areas,” said Ilan Moshe, head of the North

networking capabilities, will be able to fill operators’ and enterprises’ needs
in urban areas across North America.

international investment funds and private investors, led by Evergreen Venture
Partners, DFJ Tamir Fishman, and Argonaut Private Equity.
