CHIPPEWA VALLEY, WI, January 3, 2006-Small Tree Communications, the leading
provider of unique, state-of-the-art enterprise networking solutions for
Mac OS X, has reached an OEM agreement with Fujitsu for its 10GbE CX-4
switches, enabling Small Tree to offer the first complete 10GbE CX-4 bundle

provided by Small Tree includes a 12 port Fujitsu switch, Intel 10GbE CX-4
Network Interface Cards, Small Tree 10GbE drivers and BlazeFS file sharing
system software.

“Fujitsu has an excellent reputation for providing products with high
performance at attractive price points that are backed by exceptionally
