Mitec Looks to Accelerate Technology Commercialization at Upcoming CTIA Show

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - March 27, 2008) - Senior executives from Mitec Telecom Inc. (TSX:MTM) will attend the CTIA Wireless 2008 conference in Las Vegas from April 1 - 3, 2008 to showcase the company's innovative wireless products and offer commercialization opportunities to companies with breakthrough technologies. Mitec will be seeking to establish business agreements to provide these companies with some or all of the assistance they require to accelerate their products' time to market.

"CTIA offers a great venue for Mitec to source breakthrough technologies that would be of interest to our customers, a veritable 'who's who' of the telecommunications industry," said Dan Piergentili, Mitec's Chief Executive Officer. "Mitec has many gifted engineers on staff, but there are just not enough hours in the day for us to innovate and deliver all the technologies that our major customers need. As a technology enabler, our strategy at the show will be to identify exciting, new and existing technologies and ultimately to introduce these promising opportunities to our global commercialization partners."

"We know there are many promising companies in the marketplace, developing innovations for the wireless and satellite space," said Jeff Joseph, Mitec's Vice-President of Business Development. "However, many of these organizations lack the capital, the credibility or the skills to manufacture and market their products in a way that will enable them to reach their full market potential. We know, through our customer relationships, which technologies will appeal to them commercially. We are looking for business partners in need of financial, engineering, and/or manufacturing resources and/or distribution support. Our goal is to accelerate delivery of a needed custom solution for our customer and a put a new technology or company on the map. In this way, everybody wins!"

Mitec will be exhibiting in booth 5712 at CTIA Wireless 2008.
