Infrax Systems Executes Technical Development Agreement With Smart Meter Manufacturer, Itron, Inc.

Revolutionary "Under the Glass" Solution to Be Available First for Centron Meters From Itron

ST. PETERSBURG, FL--(Marketwire - November 23, 2010) -  Infrax Systems, Inc., (OTCBB: IFXY), a global provider of unified Smart Grid-related products and services for the Energy and Utility industries, announced today that it has entered into a Technical Information License Agreement with Itron, Inc, one of the largest smart grid meter manufacturers globally. At the conclusion of the qualification testing process, Infrax will have the ability to license the communications module to Itron, as well as sell the product as Itron compliant.

"Infrax selected Itron meters for the initial release of the Secure Network Interface Card due to their dominant position with the utilities we are working with," said Paul J. Aiello, CEO of Infrax. "Upon successful completion of our integration testing with Itron, utilities will have an option to extend the life of their existing AMR meters, and provide secure communications capabilities for both utility and home applications."

The License Agreement grants Infrax the right to design their Secure Network Interface Card and communications module for inclusion in Itron Centron meters. Itron has also provided Infrax with development tools and technical documentation to aid in this development. 

The SNIC is the latest component announced for Infrax's Secure Intelligent Energy Platform. This next generation universal host interface board is an "under the glass" solution designed for use in any standards-based meter (Electric, Water, Gas). Based on a multiple processor design, the SNIC provides military grade encryption and wireless interface modules for HAN and WAN applications.
