Infrax (IFXY) Announces the Availability of Scalable Wireless Communications for Utility Substations

UMAX Deployments Enable Utilities to Cost-Effectively Comply With Federal Guidelines

ST. PETERSBURG, FL--(Marketwire - September 9, 2010) -  Infrax Systems, Inc., (OTCBB: IFXY), a global provider of unified Smart Grid-related products and services for the Energy and Utility industries, today announced the availability of the UMAX wireless communications links. The UMAX product line provides highly survivable redundant wireless links to augment fiber and copper communications, as mandated by the North American Energy Reliability Corporation (NERC).

In 2007, the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) granted NERC the legal authority to enforce reliability standards with all users, owners and operators of the bulk power system in the United States, and made compliance with those standards mandatory and enforceable. NERC Standards require certain classifications of utility substations to be equipped with redundant, robust communications capability to improve the reliability of the electric Grid.

Infrax's UMAX wireless communications products are a core component of Substation Automation projects for Utilities and are "Smart Grid Ready." UMAX deployments can be scaled to incorporate Automated Metering Infrastructure (AMI) capabilities as well. UMAX provides an Ethernet handoff for integration with substation control, communications and monitoring equipment and is available in a broad array of licensed and unlicensed frequencies.

As NERC Standards are driven deeper into the North American power grid, Infrax's products continue to provide solutions which cost effectively improve the reliability and performance of the smart grid.
