Viyya Technologies Links With National Association of State Fire Marshals

Together Providing Fire Interoperability for Department of Homeland Security Submissions

ROSELAND, NJ--(Marketwire - November 6, 2007) - Viyya Technologies Inc. (PINKSHEETS: VYON), developer and marketer of the VIYYA Intelligence Portal (VIP), today announced its further involvement with the National Association of State Fire Marshals (NASFM) in working with state officials to finalize submissions to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). DHS has mandated state submissions in order for the state to garner the DHS funds earmarked for the DHS emergency responder interoperability initiative.

The DHS is encouraging the submission of more effective, reliable, emergency communications platforms for statewide voice and data interoperability. The VIP, with its strong Fire Service component, has been reviewed and remains the most comprehensive solution for states aware that Fire Services are an integral part of statewide emergency response.

Recognizing the strong need for introduction of powerful new technology platforms, DHS is funding interoperability solutions under the Public Safety Interoperable Communications (PSIC) grant programs. PSIC grants total more than $1 billion in funding for the 50 states. The comprehensive Viyya solution specifications, through its custom Fire Interoperability Data Portal, have been distributed to the 52 State Fire Marshals, and are currently being distributed to all 50 DHS State directors.

"The ability of all emergency response agencies to communicate across disciplines and jurisdictions with voice and data during a crisis is the top priority of DHS," stated James Burns, past President of NASFM. "The VIP is the key component of fire agencies' ability to exchange critical information such as building characteristic and hazardous materials to the Emergency Operations Centers (EOC) during the incident or catastrophic terrorist event."

The VIP, when incorporated into a state's plan, will be presented to the DHS in December of 2007. Once a plan is approved, funds are expected to be released to the state and available during the first quarter of 2008. Viyya is also developing strategic relationships with key system integrators currently well established in the government IT arenas. We believe these relationships will increase our ability to distribute the VIP within the PSIC funding structure and other funding grants currently being released by DHS.

"This is a tremendous opportunity for our company," states John Bay, CEO of Viyya Technologies. "We have been working with NASFM and the State Fire Marshals for over two years on this critical opportunity. In doing so, we have established close relationships with many states. We sincerely appreciate NASFM's support and look forward to a strong relationship with NASFM for years to come."
