First International Subsidiary Announced by OptiCon Board

INFRAX Systems Expands to South Africa

ST. PETERSBURG, FL--(Marketwire - November 12, 2009) - OptiCon Systems, Inc. (OTCBB: OPCN), a global provider of OSS (Operational Support System) software applications for the Energy and Telecommunications industries, announced today that the Board of Directors approved the filing required to establish a foreign subsidiary in South Africa under the name INFRAX Systems SA (PTY) LTD.

"We believe it is in the best interest of the corporation to expand our current position in South Africa by formalizing our market presence as 'INFRAX Systems SA.' This commitment further reflects our strategic growth into the international infrastructure arena," said Malcolm F. Welch, Chairman of the Board. OptiCon Systems' name change to INFRAX Systems, Inc. was previously announced and will be effective upon approval of the State of Nevada.

"Municipalities throughout South Africa are investing in their infrastructure and require the GIS-based fault location, provisioning tools, and OSS functionality of the OptiCon Network Manager. The South African Telecom vertical market is an optimum point of entry for expansion throughout the continent," commented Paul Aiello, OptiCon's CEO.

"We are negotiating strategic relationships with leading service providers and alternate channels of distribution in the Johannesburg and Capetown municipalities, and will be establishing incremental representation throughout South Africa over the next year," stated Tessa Lander, EVP and Chief Operating Officer of OptiCon. "The profile of our partners include full-service providers of network installation, monitoring and ongoing support in a Virtual LAN to WAN integration architecture. Their Network Operating Centers deliver outsourced management for anchor institutions, eliminating redundant overhead and expertise requirements."
