Mitec Telecom to Unveil Technology From Recently Acquired Keragis at Satellite 2008



    MONTREAL and WASHINGTON, DC, Feb. 26 /CNW Telbec/ - Mitec Telecom Inc.
(TSX: MTM) announced today that it will introduce its next-generation
amplifier solutions developed by Keragis, Mitec's recent acquisition, at this
week's Satellite 2008 Conference and Exhibition in Washington, D.C.
    "I am excited to be exhibiting Keragis' breakthrough technology at
Satellite 2008 as part of the Mitec team, " said Robert Rector, founder of
Keragis and currently Mitec's Chief Technology Officer. "This has proven to be
an ideal match - combining Keragis' revolutionary technology with Mitec's
commercialization expertise, distribution channels and manufacturing
capability. Together, we are pursuing serious business opportunities that we
would otherwise not have."
    Keragis' patent-pending technology enables exceptionally powerful
amplifiers to be used in unusually compact structures. The idea behind the
technology involves the use of a unique shape - a dodecahedron - a 12-sided
sphere that allows for increased volume but remains compact and light as a
result of its design.
    "We are very excited about the potential this technology provides in some
larger initiatives for Mitec," said Daniel Piergentili, Mitec's Chief
Executive Officer. "Mitec will be demonstrating this new technology to
existing and prospective customers including some of the world's largest
systems integrators. They will now be able to consider new, state-of-the-art
applications that require high efficiency in smaller and lighter footprints, a
key factor in radar and VSAT (Very Small Aperture Terminal) satellite
systems."
