RuggedCom Receives Purchase Orders Totalling Nearly $US 2 Million for Rail
Applications in the US

CONCORD, ON, July 8 /CNW/ - RuggedCom Inc. ("RuggedCom") (TSX:RCM), a leading provider of rugged communications networking solutions designed for mission-critical applications in harsh environments, today announced that it has received purchase orders totalling nearly $2 Million USD from major US rail companies.

"These orders are very significant as they continue an upward trend in our Transportation sector revenues that have allowed us to achieve better than 50% year-over-year growth in this sector in each of the past two fiscal years," explains Joe Gould, RuggedCom Vice President of Sales for the Americas. "We believe that these orders represent just the beginning of a trend in the Railway market, driven by modernization needs and the US government mandated Positive Train Control initiative."

RuggedCom's commitment to the Transportation market and willingness to develop specialized features to exactly match our customers' needs were key factors in being selected. In addition, one of the key selling points was RuggedCom's industry leading RuggedRated(TM) feature set for all its products. RuggedRated(TM) products provide a high level of immunity to electromagnetic interference and heavy electrical surges; feature a wide operating temperature range of -40degreesC to +85degreesC (without fans); have high mean-time-between-failures (MTBFs) and reliability characteristics; and include extensive cyber security features. RuggedCom's focused support and short lead times were also contributing factors in the decision to use RuggedCom products.
