Digital Broadband Networks Awarded Contract for $9.0 million to Supply Biometric Security Products and EyStar SmartHome Console
Tuesday April 8, 10:12 am ET


FLEMINGTON, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 8, 2003--Digital Broadband Networks, Inc. (OTCBB:DBBD - News) www.dbni.net today announced that its Malaysian subsidiary, Animated Electronic Industries, has been awarded a $9.0 million from Mutual Base Equity for the supply of biometric security products and the EyStar SmartHome Console. The contract duration is over three years with the first delivery expected to commence in the fourth quarter of 2003.
The above contract is in addition to the existing Distribution Agreement signed in January 2002 between Animated Electronic Industries and Mutual Base Equity for the supply of the EyStar SmartHome Console. The Distribution Agreement is expected to generate $17.5 million in revenue over three years.

Today, the only technology that can automatically identify people with any degree of certainty is biometrics. Biometrics uses unique physiological characteristics that are not shared by any other person, such as fingerprints and faces, to positively identify an individual. The combination of both face and fingerprint recognition technologies make it possible to serve enterprises with multiple locations and populations up to 2.5 million. The combined technologies are believed to be extremely reliable, providing a security level equivalent to a DNA test.

The multi-protocol EyStar SmartHome Console is a gateway device that bridges external data networks such as the Internet to internal home networks like Ethernet, telephone line, power line and the 802.11b wireless LAN, eliminating the need for any additional wiring in the home.
