Dallas, TX, August 26, 2010 --( Chris Yenney has joined AirWalk Communications as Vice President of Business Development and Marketing. In 2007, Mr. Yenney led the successful launch of the world’s first commercial CDMA femtocell network at Sprint Nextel.

Mr. Yenney’s appointment is part of AirWalk’s plan for rapid growth, driven by the increasing demand for more efficient data and voice networks.

He will drive AirWalk’s business expansion by positioning its products and technology in the marketplace.

“There are tremendous opportunities ahead for AirWalk, and I am thrilled to be part of the team bringing some of the most ground-breaking wireless products to market,” Mr. Yenney said. “I have admired the talent, the technical expertise and the enthusiasm at AirWalk since they emerged on the femtocell scene a few years ago. I look forward to working together to take AirWalk to the next level.”

Mr. Pequeux said bringing Mr. Yenney to AirWalk is an example of how the company is adding resources to increase the market presence of its robust portfolio of wireless products. Those products include the EdgePoint consumer femtocell and EdgePoint PRO enterprise femtocell, along with macrocells for large-scale cellular networks and picocells for campus, office, and public area environments.

As part of his leadership of the femtocell program at Sprint Nextel, Mr. Yenney was instrumental in driving technological advances and their adoption as well as real-world business opportunities.
