Mitec selected to supply point-to-point components to major telecom provider

MONTREAL, Jan. 19 /CNW Telbec/ - Mitec Telecom Inc. ("Mitec") (TSX: MTM), a leading designer and manufacturer of mobile wireless, fixed wireless, broadcast and satellite components has been selected as the lead supplier for diplexers for one of the world's largest telecom equipment providers. Diplexers are a key component used in point-to-point digital radios. The forecasted value of the supply agreement is $3 million over the next twelve months.

Point-to-point radio systems provide both greater speed and capacity transmission solutions to the telecom market and serve the growing demand for increased mobile bandwidth as existing legacy backhaul spectrum becomes more scarce and costly to expand. A point-to-point radio system is a cheaper and more practical solution than traditional, permanent backhaul systems. Point-to-point radio networks are predominant in fast growing regions such as Asia Pacific, driven by India, as well as Europe, China and South America.

"The point-to-point radio market is among the fastest growing markets in telecom since these radios have the capability to satisfy the demand for high capacity bandwidth, such as real-time video", said Dan Piergentili, Mitec's President and CEO. "Mitec identified the point-to-point radio market as one of the key opportunities on which to focus as part of its growth strategy and we are very pleased to have been selected as lead supplier by one of the world's largest and fastest growing telecom equipment providers, further expanding and strengthening our relationship with this customer".
