INFRAX Systems' (IFXY) "OptiCon Network Manager" Chosen by BalsamWest FiberNET as Operational Support Solution to Critical Expansion Needs

BalsamWest's Commitment to World-Class Technology Investments to Include GPS-Based Fault Locating Management System Provided by OptiCon Network Manager

ST. PETERSBURG, FL--(Marketwire - January 19, 2010) - INFRAX SYSTEMS, Inc. (OTCBB: IFXY), formerly known as OptiCon Systems, Inc., global provider of OSS (Operational Support System) software applications for Fiber Based Networks for the Telecommunications and Energy industry, announced today that BalsamWest FiberNET has chosen the OPTICON Network Management System (ONMS) because of its advanced fault-detection, GIS application integration and ease of implementation through INFRAX's ASP Hosting Services.

"INFRAX's Opticon NMS solution provided the best implementation support services, the best economics, and the industry's most advanced fault-detection capabilities," said David Hubbs, CEO at BalsamWest FiberNET. "We anticipate that we will realize the benefits that other carriers have experienced, with ONMS contributing to our profitability by efficiently impacting real business challenges."

Hubbs said, "This year, we will release a suite of services for business which include a robust, feature-rich VOIP phone product combined with high speed Internet service, all at very competitive prices. The businesses in our region need affordable alternatives and deserve to have access to a variety of converged services that are normally only available in urban markets, and better management of our network will be critical."

"We are pleased to welcome BalsamWest FiberNET as our first customer under our new identity, INFRAX Systems, Inc. We are confident that INFRAX Systems will provide operations solutions for fiber networks in all industries," said Paul Aiello, CEO of INFRAX Systems, Inc.

"The scope of the OptiCon NMS as a full-function Operations Support System integrated with GIS, Database, and Fiber Management tools that facilitate fault detection and network provisioning, provides an economical way to establish fiber-based network management services in a scalable manner," continued Aiello. "This functionality of this product will be further optimized for fiber networks in 2010."

Ron Massingale, VP of Sales and Marketing, commented, "The breadth and depth of the application capabilities, especially its GIS integration, will identify network outages, allowing us to improve customer service without disrupting our business operations. We've tried other operations software solutions, but their lack of implementation support consumed too many of our resources to be effective. The support offered to us by INFRAX, makes this a 'win-win' decision that has already resulted in improving our network management."
