ISCO International Signs Distribution Agreement With Exitel in Mexico

ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL--(Marketwire - October 26, 2007) - ISCO International, Inc. (AMEX: ISO) today announced it has signed an agreement with Mexico's Exitel to distribute ISCO's unique radio frequency management and interference-control solutions to the wireless telecommunications industry in the Latin American Region.

Exitel is a leading distributor of wireless and wireline telecommunications infrastructure equipment in Latin America.

"Exitel has the personal relationships with cellular and wireless operators who are faced with the challenging interference issues that traditional frequency planning methods are unable to resolve," said Neal Campbell, executive vice president of Next Generation Products for ISCO (www.iscointl.com). "We have an extensive portfolio of adaptive interference management (AIM) products to benefit telecom operators who experience interference, especially prevalent in spread spectrum (CDMA/UMTS/WiFi) mobile systems."

These environments are a direct result of the difficulty in creating clear spectrum in an already crowded allocation for many Latin American regions.

ISCO's AIM platform identifies, prioritizes and suppresses random and dynamic interference signals that are within the receive bands of mobile telecommunications systems. The AIM products integrate seamlessly with cell site equipment. Importantly, due to the flexible Linux architecture and internally generated reference library, it is possible to future proof a network from new types and modes of interference as new wireless technologies are introduced.
