Mitec’s Tower Mounted Amplifier technology to upgrade wireless

    Mitec’s Tower Mounted Amplifiers respond to the growing customer demand
    for improved wireless coverage by significantly extending the range of an
    existing cell site.

    “This is a meaningful milestone for Mitec since it validates the
    Company’s strategy to both compete vigorously in existing markets and pursue
    new opportunities. By re-engineering some of our off-the-shelf technology at
    nominal cost we were able to quickly and directly distribute it to a new
    market,” said Dan Piergentili, Mitec President and CEO. “Our customer, a large
    North American wireless operator, selected Mitec because we have proven and
    robust technology that is engineered to withstand the harshest environments –
    technology that can also be quickly and easily deployed.”

    The Tower Mounted Amplifiers currently being delivered are for both
    Personal Communications (PCS) and Advance Wireless Networks (AWS), following
    last year’s spectrum auction in the United States. Operators are in the
    process of installing the infrastructure to support these networks and it is
    anticipated they will be operational this year. Rugged Tower Mounted
    Amplifiers are manufactured in Mitec’s Suzhou, China factory but the research
    and development that brought this technology to market was conducted in
    Canada.

    “Tower Mounted Amplifiers are considered a preferred solution for
    operators, who are now finding it challenging, either from the landscape or
    regulations, to deploy new cell sites where demand exists for increased range
    and service,” said Piergentili.

    The North American wireless operator named Mitec a preferred technology
    supplier on the strength of products it launched at the CTIA 2007 Wireless
    Trade show in March 2007. Deliveries stemming from this agreement started
    shipping in December 2007 and are expected to continue throughout 2008 and
    2009 across the United States.

    “We are exploring the opportunities for our products with other telecom
    providers to address a similar, emerging need in Canada. The upcoming spectrum
    auction will undoubtedly create the same demand for upgraded wireless
    infrastructure as we have seen in the United States – a demand that Mitec is
    uniquely positioned to satisfy through its Tower Mounted Amplifier
    technology”, said Jeffrey Mandel, director investor and corporate relations.
