Durham, NC, December 06, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- GigaBeam Corporation (NASDAQ: GGBM), deploying WiFiber® “wireless fiber optics” technology to economic centers across the globe, today announced that it received a Notice of Noncompliance from the NASDAQ on November 30, 2007 indicating the Company is not in compliance with the continued listing standards. This letter was sent in response to the Company’s failure to have a minimum of $2,500,000 in stockholders’ equity or $35,000,000 market value of listed securities or $500,000 of net income from continuing operations for the most recently completed fiscal year or two of the three most recently completed fiscal years, as required by Nasdaq Marketplace Rule 4310(c)(3).
GigaBeam's WiFiber technology is similar to terrestrial fiber in terms of speed and reliability. WiFiber has a substantial advantage over terrestrial fiber because it can be rapidly deployed and costs significantly less to deploy than terrestrial fiber. Terrestrial fiber can take months to deploy and also require significant regulatory and environmental approvals prior to installation.
GigaBeam WiFiber products operate in the 71-76 GHz and 81-86 GHz upper millimeter wave spectrum bands. The Federal Communications Commission and the European Conference of Postal and Telecommunications Administrations (CEPT) and certain other countries have authorized this portion of the spectrum for licensed wireless commercial use.
