EIT Inc. Announces $1.4 Million Order

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - October 19, 2007) - Travana Networks Inc (PINKSHEETS: MRDV) today announced EIT Inc., its wholly owned telecommunications subsidiary, located in Sanford, Florida, will provide Century Telephone Company, one of the largest regulated, non Bell, Independent Operating Companies in the US, with an estimated $1.4 million worth of equipment and services. "Purchase orders for over $550,000 have been received for acquisition and installation of ten Network Administration & Management Systems (NAMS) units manufactured by Carrier Management Systems Inc. to replace billing storage devices discontinued by Siemens, as well as reconfiguration of certain elements of Century Tel's large network," stated Peter Lyons, President of EIT Inc.

"These purchase orders are part of an overall plan by Century Tel, which also includes an additional 17 NAMS units to be purchased and installed in 2008 at a value of $850,000.00," stated Rick Brashear, EIT's director of sales. "EIT continues to offer equipment sales and service to both Bell operating companies as well as the 1500 or so independent regulated telephone companies in the US. We are in the unique position to be able to sell and support the existing 'legacy' network equipment, which the main manufacturers are now discontinuing, while at the same time offering the telephone companies equipment to migrate their networks from the current narrowband technology to IP-based broadband technologies. This allows the telephone companies to better compete with the Cable companies by offering IP-based voice services (VOIP), broadband Internet access, and IPTV, all over a single connection provided by the local telephone company," stated Lyons.
