Solectek Obtains Follow on Order for 4.9 GHz Point-to-Multipoint Video Surveillance Project Optimized for Government Homeland Security

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - January 10, 2008) - Solectek Corporation, a manufacturer of broadband and public safety wireless equipment, announced that the company obtained a total commitment of approximately $1 million dollars for its SkyWay 4000 Professional Series platform with SkyWay-Videocast™, a feature that significantly reduces overhead on the network and improves performance for video traffic. The Professional Series enables multicast operation essential for video security applications. Shipments to the $150 billion-plus Latin America telecommunications company, related systems integrators and government end-user have already started and will continue through 2008. Hundreds of Solectek radios are wirelessly connecting IP (internet protocol) video cameras to aid in public safety, including natural disaster assessment, traffic monitoring and crime prevention and prosecution. The success of the initial rollout in mid-2007 led to the follow on commitment.

"We are excited to be the winning bidder on this major roll-out of wireless equipment for the public safety sector," said Dr. Eric Lee, CEO of Solectek. "This is a testament to the hard work our engineering team put in to the SkyWay 4000 Professional Series and to the excellent relationship our sales and technical support teams created with the customer, solving all their concerns amidst stiff competition."

Solectek is shipping the 4000 Professional Series now, and the platform is backward compatible with previous models.
