(CIPNetworks) to deploy a network backbone link between two CIPNetwork data centers based in Southern California.

ANAHEIM, Calif., March 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — NextPhase Wireless, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: NPHS), a nationwide developer of WiMAX-ready networks and provider of advanced wireless broadband solutions, today announced that it has been selected by Convergent IP Networks, Inc. (CIPNetworks) to deploy a network backbone link between two CIPNetwork data centers based in Southern California.

Utilizing licensed fixed wireless spectrum on the 29 GHz band recently acquired by NextPhase, a CIPNetwork data center, co-located in NextPhase's Network Operations Center in Anaheim, will be linked over NextPhase's WiMAX- ready network to a sister CIPNetwork data center based in Santa Fe Springs, providing increased redundancy and enhanced network security that better meets CIPNetwork's increasingly stringent security and bandwidth requirements.

Since 1997, Convergent IP Networks has served as a preferred source of comprehensive IP networking services and solutions to the Southern California business community. "Over the past few years, NextPhase has played an expanding role in our Company's growth strategies," stated Michael Buchanan, CIPNetwork's President and CEO. "Under our guidance, our customers have become increasingly sophisticated and their IP demands have evolved and expanded. CIPNetworks has endeavored to meet those demands with new product offerings that continue to exceed their expectations. Partnering with companies like NextPhase empowers us to provide reliable and scalable solutions to our business customers, regardless of their locations, while continuing to meet their growing security and bandwidth requirements."

Continuing, Buchanan added, "Initiatives such as our Santa Fe Springs Data Center far exceed the average customer requirements. But, because we are providing both Server Virtualization and Off Site Backup Services, our storage needs alone will require multiple Terabytes from the start and will continue to grow. Connectivity speeds provided by NextPhase should readily exceed 100 Mbps and will greatly increase WAN performance while allowing for the multiple levels of encryption that our customers require."

Tom Hemingway, Chairman and COO of NextPhase, noted, "We are very pleased that CIPNetworks has chosen NextPhase for this mission-critical project. It is especially rewarding to be teaming with another company that is as committed as we are to empowering business owners with the same powerful connectivity and networking capabilities previously reserved only for enterprise-class companies."
