CALGARY, CANADA and SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA--(CCNMatthews - June 27, 2005) -

G7 Soft Agrees to Further Develop Libra Mobilis(TM) for Public Transit Applications

Wi-LAN Inc. (TSX:WIN - News) and G7 Soft Co. Ltd. (G7 Soft) announced today an agreement to advance the development of Wi-LAN's Libra Mobilis products for public transit applications. Once it completes further development of the products, G7 Soft will be the exclusive seller of the products in South Korea, and Wi-LAN will retain exclusive rights to sell Libra Mobilis products elsewhere. The agreement includes profit-sharing provisions for product sales.

"Libra Mobilis has demonstrated some very exciting results in field trials with key transportation customers in South Korea," said Mr. Young - Hoon Oh, Chief Executive Officer of G7 Soft. "The products provide a throughput capability that other products cannot achieve, allowing streaming security surveillance videos from inside trains at demonstrated speeds of up to 300 kilometres per hour. The system also has enough bandwidth remaining to provide value-added services such as backhaul of mobile WiFi and video advertising to train customers. We believe this product has a very promising future for improving the security and market appeal of public transit."

"This agreement enables Wi-LAN to focus its research and development efforts on its core WiMAX products, while capitalizing on its previous pioneering development of the Libra Mobilis products for the Intelligent Transportation Systems market," said Bill Dunbar, Chief Executive Officer of Wi-LAN. "G7 Soft has seen strong interest in Libra Mobilis from some key rail transit customers in South Korea, so they are keen to develop the additional features and functionality that these customers desire. Wi-LAN will benefit from their development efforts through profit-sharing of the Libra Mobilis products sold by G7 Soft in South Korea, and through a larger share of the profits on products that we sell elsewhere in the world."

Libra Mobilis features uninterrupted service for mobile mission-critical security applications, and seamless access for transit passengers who wish to catch up on email or browse online news during their commute. It delivers a dynamic link ideal for bandwidth-intensive applications such as streaming video and internet browsing, while delivering low latency, making it suitable as a VoIP solution. Additional development will be based on Wi-LAN's WiMAX system-on-chip technology.
