Software is provided "AS IS" and IWAV makes no warranty that Software operation
will be uninterrupted or error-free in case of misuse or improper installation
by a party other than IWAV or UTStarcom's trained staff. UTStarcom is [***]

greater scope or protection than the warranty (including the limited remedy, 
exclusions, and limitation of liability) set forth in this Section 14 and 
Section 19 below. UTStarcom shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless IWAV 
from any claim or liability arising out of or relating to breach of the

Customer warranty claims are addressed to UTStarcom and not to IWAV. 
UTStarcom shall, promptly upon being given notice by a Customer of a claim 
covered by IWAV's warranty, provide to IWAV written notice of such claim, and 
shall include in that notice sufficient information that IWAV can determine 
the source of the problem. If resolving the problem requires replacement 
parts, then IWAV will provide those replacement parts to UTStarcom and 
UTStarcom will install those parts according to IWAV's instructions. If 
resolving the problem requires modifications to the setup of the Products, 
then UTStarcom shall make such modifications at IWAV's request and according 
to IWAV's instructions. In any event, UTStarcom shall notify IWAV promptly

Agreement; or (iii) any law, decree, or regulation is enacted by the government
of the Territory which would impair or restrict (1) the right of either party to
terminate or elect not to renew this Agreement as herein provided, (2) IWAV's
right, title or interest in the Products or the intellectual property rights
therein, or (3) IWAV's rights to receive the payments under this Agreement.
Without limiting the foregoing, either party may terminate this Agreement
effective upon written notice to the other party stating such party's intention
to terminate, in the event the other party:

              15.2.1 ceases to function as a going concern or to conduct
operations in the normal course of business, or


              15.2.2 has a petition filed by or against it under any state or
federal bankruptcy or insolvency law which petition has not been dismissed or
set aside within [***] of its filing; or

              15.2.3 fails to perform any of its obligations under this
Agreement so as to be in default hereunder and fails to cure such default within
[***] after written notice of such default.

       15.3   PURCHASE ORDERS; NO WAIVER: UTStarcom shall be obligated to accept
deliveries of Products for which purchase orders were accepted by IWAV prior to
the effective date of termination. After any notice of termination has been
delivered by either party hereunder, deliveries of Product from IWAV to
UTStarcom, unless otherwise agreed by IWAV [***], shall require prepayment by
[***] (at [***] option) by UTStarcom to IWAV. The acceptance of any purchase
order from or the sale or license of any Product to UTStarcom after the
termination or expiration of this Agreement shall not be construed as a renewal
or extension of this Agreement nor as a waiver of termination of this Agreement.

       15.4   NO LIABILITY FOR TERMINATION. Except as expressly required by law,
in the event of termination of this Agreement by either party in accordance with
any of the provisions of this Agreement, neither party shall be liable to the
other, because of such termination, for compensation, reimbursement or damages
on account of the loss of prospective profits or anticipated sales or on account
of expenditures, inventory, investments, leases or commitments in connection
with the business or goodwill of IWAV or UTStarcom. Termination shall not,
however, relieve either party of obligations incurred prior to the termination.

       15.5   SURVIVAL. UTStarcom may sell Products existing in its inventory as
of the effective date of termination of this Agreement for a period of [***]
after the effective date of such termination ("Wind-Down Period"). During the
Wind-Down Period, the provisions of Sections 6, 7 


                                      -10-


and 9 shall survive. In addition to the provisions set forth in this Section
15.5, the following provisions shall survive expiration or any termination of
this Agreement: Sections 14, 16, 17, 19, 21 and the last sentence of Section
18.2.

              15.6   RETURN OF MATERIALS. All Products, trademarks, marks, trade
names, patents, copyrights, designs, drawings, formulas or other data,
photographs, samples, literature, and sales and promotional aids of every kind
shall remain the property of IWAV. Within [***] after the effective date of
termination of this Agreement, UTStarcom shall at [***] option destroy all
tangible items bearing, containing, or contained in, any of the foregoing, in
its possession or control and provide written certification of such destruction,
or prepare such tangible items for shipment and ship such items to IWAV or
IWAV's designee, [***] IWAV, at [***] expense. UTStarcom shall not make or
retain any copies of any Confidential Information (as defined in Section 16
below) which may have been entrusted to it.

       16.    CONFIDENTIALITY AND PROPRIETARY RIGHTS

              16.1   CONFIDENTIALITY. Each party hereto acknowledges that by
reason of its relationship to the other party hereunder it will have access to
certain information and materials concerning the other party's business, plans,
Customers, technology, and products that are confidential and of substantial
value to the Parties, which value would be impaired if such information were
disclosed to third parties ("Confidential Information"). Each party agrees that
it will not use in any way for its own account or the account of any third
party, nor disclose to any third party, any Confidential Information revealed to
it by the other party. Each party shall take every reasonable precaution to
protect the confidentiality of Confidential Information. Upon request by either
party, the other party shall advise whether or not it considers any particular
information or materials to be confidential. Neither party shall publish any
technical description of the Products beyond the description authorized by
mutual agreement between the parties. In the event of termination of this
Agreement, there shall be no use or disclosure by either party of any
Confidential Information, and neither party shall manufacture or have
manufactured any devices, components or assemblies utilizing any of the other
party's confidential information. Notwithstanding the provisions of this Section
16.1, the parties hereby consent to the public disclosure of the existence of
this Agreement, and to disclosure of the terms of this Agreement as may be
required by law or governmental decree, including but not limited to any
disclosures which may be required by the United States Securities and Exchange
Commission. Additionally, the parties hereto agree that each party may, after
the signing of this Agreement, publicize the existence of this Agreement by
issuance of a press release describing the general nature of the relationship
envisioned hereby. Prior to the issuance of said press release[s], the releasing
party shall provide the other party with a draft copy of the proposed press
release, and shall gain the other party's approval of the press release prior to
issuance.

              16.2   PROPRIETARY RIGHTS. UTStarcom agrees that IWAV retains all
of its rights, title and interest in and to all patent rights, trademarks, trade
names, inventions, copyrights, know-how and trade secrets relating to the
Products or the product lines that include the Products, and the design,
manufacture, operation or service of the Products. The use by UTStarcom of any
of these property rights is authorized only for the purposes herein set forth
and upon termination of this Agreement for any reason such authorization will
cease. UTStarcom shall not (and shall require that 


                                      -11-


its Customers do not) remove, alter, cover or obfuscate any copyright notices or
other proprietary rights notices placed or embedded by IWAV on or in any
Product.

       17.    PATENT/COPYRIGHT/TRADEMARK INDEMNIFICATION

              17.1   INDEMNITY. UTStarcom agrees that IWAV has the right to
defend, or at its option to settle, and IWAV agrees, at its own expense, to
defend or at its option to settle, any third party claim, suit or proceeding
(collectively, "Action") brought against UTStarcom alleging the Products
infringe any patent, copyright or IWAV Trademark (as defined in Section 18.1) in
existence as of the Effective Date, subject to the limitations hereinafter set
forth. IWAV will have sole control of any such Action or settlement
negotiations, and IWAV agrees to pay, subject to the limitations hereinafter set
forth, any final judgment entered against UTStarcom on such issue in any such
Action defended by IWAV. UTStarcom agrees that IWAV will be relieved of the
foregoing obligations unless UTStarcom notifies IWAV promptly in writing of such
Action, gives IWAV authority to proceed as contemplated herein, and gives IWAV
proper and full information and assistance to settle and/or defend any such
Action. If it is adjudicatively determined, or if IWAV believes, that the
Products, or any part thereof, infringe any patent, copyright or trademark, or
if the sale or use of the Products, or any part thereof, is, as a result,
enjoined, then IWAV may, at its election, option, and expense: (i) procure for
UTStarcom the right under such patent, copyright or trademark to sell or use, as
appropriate, the Products or such part thereof; or (ii) replace the Products, or
part thereof, with other noninfringing suitable Products or parts; or (iii)
suitably modify the Products or part thereof; or (iv) remove the Products, or
part thereof, terminate distribution or sale thereof and refund the payments
paid by UTStarcom for such Products less a reasonable amount for use and damage.
IWAV will not be liable for any costs or expenses incurred without its prior
written authorization, or for any installation costs of any replaced Products.

              17.2   LIMITATIONS. Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 17.1
above, IWAV has no liability to UTStarcom for (i) any infringement of patent or
copyright claims alleging infringement by completed equipment or any assembly,
circuit, combination, method or process in which any of the Products may be used
but not covering the Products standing alone; (ii) any trademark infringements
involving any marking or branding not applied by or requested by IWAV, or
involving any marking or branding applied by IWAV at the request of UTStarcom;
or (iii) the modification of the Products, or any part thereof, unless such
modification was made by IWAV, where such infringement would not have occurred
but for such modifications.

              17.3   DISCLAIMER. IWAV'S LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO
THIS SECTION 17 SHALL NOT EXCEED THE AGGREGATE AMOUNTS PAID BY UTSTARCOM TO IWAV
FOR THE ALLEGEDLY INFRINGING PRODUCTS THAT ARE THE SUBJECT OF THE INFRINGEMENT
CLAIM. THE FOREGOING PROVISIONS OF THIS SECTION 17 STATE THE ENTIRE LIABILITY
AND OBLIGATIONS OF IWAV AND THE EXCLUSIVE REMEDY OF UTSTARCOM AND ITS CUSTOMERS,
WITH RESPECT TO ANY ALLEGED PATENT, COPYRIGHT OR TRADEMARK INFRINGEMENT BY THE
PRODUCTS OR ANY PART THEREOF.

       18.    USE OF TRADEMARKS/TRADE NAMES


                                      -12-


              18.1   TRADEMARKS. During the term of this Agreement, UTStarcom
shall distribute the IWAV Product(s) under the UTStarcom trademark and product
label. The trademarks, marks, trade names and product labels of UTStarcom which
shall be used for distribution of the Product(s) are set forth in EXHIBIT C
("Trademarks"), a copy of which is attached hereto, and incorporated into this
Agreement by reference. UTStarcom shall have the right to indicate to the public
that it is an authorized distributor of IWAV's Products.

              18.2   USE. Except as set forth in this Section 18, nothing
contained in this Agreement shall grant or shall be deemed to grant to UTStarcom
any right, title or interest in or to IWAV's Trademarks. All uses of IWAV's
Trademarks will inure solely to IWAV and UTStarcom shall obtain no rights with
respect to any of IWAV's Trademarks, other than the right to distribute Products
as set forth herein, and UTStarcom irrevocably assigns to IWAV all such right,
title and interest, if any, in any of IWAV's Trademarks. At no time during or
after the term of this Agreement shall UTStarcom challenge or assist others to
challenge IWAV's Trademarks (except to the extent expressly prohibited by
applicable law) or the registration thereof or attempt to register any
trademarks, marks or trade names confusingly similar to those of IWAV.

       19.    LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

       IWAV's liability arising out of or relating to this Agreement shall not
exceed the aggregate amounts paid by UTStarcom to IWAV hereunder. IN NO EVENT
SHALL EITHER PARTY BE LIABLE FOR LOST PROFITS, COST OF PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE
GOODS, OR ANY OTHER SPECIAL, RELIANCE, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES,
HOWEVER CAUSED AND UNDER ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT
(INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), OR OTHERWISE. THE FOREGOING LIMITATIONS SHALL APPLY
REGARDLESS OF WHETHER SUCH PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH
DAMAGES AND NOTWITHSTANDING THE FAILURE OF ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF ANY LIMITED
REMEDY STATED HEREIN.

       20.    COMPLIANCE WITH LAWS

              20.1   EXPORT CONTROL. UTStarcom understands and acknowledges that
IWAV is subject to regulation by agencies of the United States Government,
including, but not limited to, the U.S. Department of Commerce, which prohibit
export or diversion of certain products and technology to certain countries. Any
and all obligations of IWAV to provide the Products, as well as any other
technical information or assistance shall be subject in all respects to such
United States laws and regulations as shall from time to time govern the license
and delivery of technology and products abroad by persons subject to the
jurisdiction of the United States, including the Export Administration Act of
1979, as amended, any successor legislation, and the Export Administration
Regulations issued by the Department of Commerce, Bureau of Export
Administration. UTStarcom agrees to cooperate with IWAV including without
limitation, providing required documentation, in order to assist IWAV in
obtaining export licenses or exemptions therefrom. UTStarcom warrants that it
will comply with the Export Administration Regulations and other United States
laws and regulations governing exports in effect from time to time. UTStarcom
further agrees not to resell Products to any organization, public or private,
which engages in the research or production of 


                                      -13-


military devices, armaments, or any instruments of warfare, including
biological, chemical and nuclear warfare.

              20.2   GOVERNMENTAL APPROVALS. UTStarcom represents and warrants
that it has obtained all required approvals of the government within the
Territory in connection with this Agreement and that the provisions of this
Agreement and the rights and obligations of the parties hereunder, are
enforceable under the laws within the Territory.

              20.3   FOREIGN CORRUPT PRACTICES ACT. In conformity with the
United States Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and with IWAV's established
corporate policies regarding foreign business practices, UTStarcom and its
employees and agents shall not directly or indirectly make any offer, payment,
or promise to pay; authorize payment; nor offer a gift, promise to give, or
authorize the giving of anything of value for the purpose of influencing any act
or decision of an official of any government within the Territory or the United
States Government (including a decision not to act) or inducing such a person to
use his or her influence to affect any such governmental act or decision in
order to assist IWAV in obtaining, retaining or directing any such business.

       21.    MISCELLANEOUS PROVISIONS

              21.1   INDEPENDENT CONTRACTORS. The relationship of IWAV and
UTStarcom established by this Agreement is that of independent contractors, and
neither party is an employee, agent, partner or joint venturer of the other. All
financial obligations associated with UTStarcom's business are the sole
responsibility of UTStarcom. All sales and other agreements between UTStarcom
and its Customers are UTStarcom's exclusive responsibility and will have no
effect on UTStarcom's obligations under this Agreement.

              21.2   ASSIGNMENT. UTStarcom may not transfer or assign its rights
or obligations under this Agreement without the prior written consent of IWAV.
Subject to the foregoing sentence, this Agreement will be binding upon and inure
to the benefit of the parties hereto, their successors and assigns.

              21.3   INDEMNITY. Except for warranty claims for which IWAV is
liable under Section 14 and infringement claims covered by Section 17, UTStarcom
agrees to indemnify and hold IWAV harmless against any cost, loss, liability or
expense (including attorney's fees) arising out of third party claims against
IWAV relating to UTStarcom's use and distribution of the Products.

              21.4   NO IMPLIED WAIVERS. The failure of either party at any time
to require performance by the other of any provision hereof shall not affect the
right of such party to require performance at any time thereafter, nor shall the
waiver of either party of a breach of any provision hereof be taken or held to
be a waiver of a provision itself.

              21.5   SEVERABILITY. If any provision of this Agreement is held to
be invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, then the remaining provisions
will nevertheless remain in full force and effect. The parties agree to
renegotiate in good faith those provisions so held to be invalid to be valid,
enforceable provisions which provisions shall reflect as closely as possible the
original intent of the parties, and further agree to be bound by the mutually
agreed substitute provision.


                                      -14-


              21.6   FORCE MAJEURE. Except for payment of monies, neither party
shall be liable for failure to fulfill its obligations under this Agreement or
any purchase order issued hereunder or for delays in delivery due to causes
beyond its reasonable control, including, but not limited to, acts of God,
man-made or natural disasters, earthquakes, fire, riots, flood, material or
supplier shortages, strikes, delays in transportation or inability to obtain
labor or materials through its regular sources. The time for performance of any
such obligation shall be extended for the time period lost by reason of the
delay.

              21.7   CONFLICTING TERMS. The parties agree that the terms and
conditions of this Agreement shall prevail, notwithstanding contrary or
additional terms, in any purchase order, sales acknowledgment, confirmation or
any other document issued by either party effecting the purchase and/or sale of
Products.

              21.8   HEADINGS. Headings of paragraphs herein are inserted for
convenience of reference only and shall not affect the construction or
interpretation of this Agreement.

              21.9   LIABILITY OF IWAV. The provisions of this Agreement under
which the liability of IWAV is excluded or limited shall not apply to the extent
that such exclusions or limitations are declared illegal or void under the laws
applicable in the Territory in which Products are sold, unless the illegality or
invalidity is cured under the laws of the Territory by the fact that the law of
California governs this Agreement.

              21.10  CURRENCY CONTROL. UTStarcom represents and warrants that,
as of the Effective Date of this Agreement, no currency control laws applicable
in the Territory prevent the payment to IWAV of any sums due under this
Agreement. In the event that any such laws come into effect and the local
government of the Territory does not permit that payment be made in United
States Dollars, UTStarcom will notify IWAV immediately, and if so instructed by
IWAV, deposit all monies due IWAV to the account of IWAV in a local bank of
IWAV's choice in the Territory.

              21.11  NOTICE. Any notice required or permitted to be given under
this Agreement shall be delivered (i) by hand, (ii) by registered or certified
mail, postage prepaid, return receipt requested, to the address of the other
party first set forth above, or to such other address as a party may designate
by written notice in accordance with this Section 21.11, (iii) by overnight
courier, or (iv) by fax with confirming letter mailed under the conditions
described in (ii) above. Notice so given shall be deemed effective when
received, or if not received by reason of fault of addressee, when delivered.

              21.12  ENTIRE AGREEMENT. This Agreement contains the entire
understanding of the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and
supersedes all prior agreements relating thereto, written or oral, between the
parties. Amendments to this Agreement must be in writing, signed by the duly
authorized officers of the parties. The terms of any purchase order are
expressly excluded.

              21.13  GOVERNING LAW. This Agreement shall be governed by and
construed under the law of the State of California, without regard to conflict
of laws principles or the U.N. Convention on Contracts for the International
Sale of Goods.

                                      -15-


              21.14  ARBITRATION. Any dispute or claim arising out of or in
relation to this Agreement, or the interpretation, making, performance, breach
or termination thereof, shall be finally settled by binding arbitration under
the Rules of Conciliation and Arbitration of the International Chamber of
Commerce as presently in force ("Rules") and by 3 arbitrators appointed in
accordance with said Rules. Judgment on the award rendered may be entered in any
court having jurisdiction thereof. The place of arbitration shall be Alameda
County, U.S.A. Any monetary award shall be in U.S. dollars and the arbitration
shall be conducted in the English language. The parties may apply to any court
of competent jurisdiction for temporary or permanent injunctive relief, without
breach of this Section 21.14 and without any abridgment of the powers of the
arbitrator.
