Pittsburgh, PA. (January 25, 2010) – Proxicast (www.proxicast.com)

Proxicast announces the immediate availability of a new firmware release for its flagship LAN-Cell 2 3G
cellular router. The Proxicast LAN-Cell 2 is an enterprise-class upgradeable 3G secure cellular router.

The latest LAN-Cell 2 firmware, version 4.02(AQP.6), incorporates many new features to enhance the
LAN-Cell's already extensive complement of connectivity, security, and management functions. Proxicast
has added support for several new 3G cellular modem cards along with an enhanced SNMP (simple
network management protocol) agent and MIB (management information base) with support for the
Proxicast’s soon to be released ProxiVIEW Dashboard centralized device management system.

To keep pace with the latest in 3G wireless technologies and standards, Proxicast has added support for
these additional cellular PC-Card (PCMCIA) and ExpressCard modems:

 Sierra Wireless AirCard 402 (Sprint & Verizon Wireless)

 Novatel Wireless Merlin C777 (Sprint)
 Novatel Wireless Merlin PC770 (Verizon Wireless)

The Sierra Wireless AirCard 402 and Novatel Wireless Merlin PC770 / C777 feature innovative 2-in-1
designs that allow them to function as both full size PC-Card (54 mm) and ExpressCard (34 mm) 3G
cellular modems. They also support high speed EV-DO Rev. A wide area wireless broadband access on
the Sprint PCS and Verizon Wireless cellular networks.

The new LAN-Cell 2 firmware features an enhanced SNMP agent and MIB that includes full 3G & Wi-Fi
parameters, making it easier to manage the LAN-Cell 2 with popular third-party SNMP management tools,
such as HP OpenView (Network Node Manager), IBM Tivoli (NetView) and SolarWinds. Firmware support
has also been added for Proxicast’s own soon to be released hosted central management system called
ProxiVIEW Dashboard.

ProxiVIEW Dashboard centralizes the management of multiple remote LAN-Cell’s into a single web site.
Device status is automatically polled and reported in an easy to use spreadsheet interface. ProxiVIEW
includes a full SYSLOG server so that device log data can be kept indefinitely. It also includes graphing
options to show trends such as cellular signal strength, data traffic usage, and VPN connectivity over
