Neotel is Pleased to Announce the Launch of SignHere'TM', the Most Exciting New Biometric Development; Ready for the 21st Century

MARKHAM, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - April 12, 2006) - Neotel International Inc. (TSX VENTURE:NIT); "Neotel" announces that it's New Products Group (NPG) has developed and released a user friendly biometric technology based on something that is fundamentally human. SignHere™ is a "people friendly" biometric based on the human act of signing your signature. "It's as easy as signing your name"!

Neotel completed its highly successful launch of SignHere™ at the Canadian Advanced Technology Alliance's (CATA Alliance) inaugural Canadian Aviation Security Conference (CASC) in Ottawa, on March 28, and 29, 2006. As a CATA member, Neotel was able to present SignHere™ at a conference symposium. SignHere™ was demonstrated using two form factors, a graphic mouse pad and a pocket sized PDA, operating over a wireless network.

SignHere™ addresses the issues of conducting business electronically with the same level of certainty and faith as we enjoy in the paper world. "SignHere™ can replace a loyalty card, a health card, and enhance the security and safe use of a credit or debit card. Imagine if you can, how secure your bank card would be at an ATM if you could sign in," says Howard J. Phee, President & CEO of Neotel.

"You are who you say you are" with SignHere™. It creates legally binding evidence connecting an individual's identity with their active participation in a specific transaction or document. A complete audit trail can be provided while adhering to the rules of evidence in legal proceedings.

"SignHere™ is the most innovative, yet simple, intuitive and scalable signature solution ever introduced in the marketplace," states Phee. It dramatically increases the levels of trust in electronic business processes by providing "Certainty of Identity." SignHere™ delivers certainty by measuring the unique biometric identifiers that are part of an individual's signature. The information associated with the unique "muscle memory" an individual uses when signing their signature, creates a signature profile that is a dynamic biometric identifier unlike finger prints, retinas, and voice prints that rely on exact matching. "With our newly developed patent pending technologies, the reality is that, to the best of our knowledge, no other such application is yet available in the market," states Phee.

"Neotel's signature verification solution is a tremendous enhancement for securing transactions for our mobile customers", said Ray Moschuk, CEO of Meta4hand Inc., a Neotel SignHere™ partner. "Together, our technologies enable secure and trusted access to sensitive, confidential and mission critical information. SignHere™ enables users to authenticate themselves from wireless devices with an extremely high degree of certainty, thus enabling trusted access to sensitive applications in the financial, healthcare and engineering sectors. We are pleased to be working with Neotel to further these initiatives."

Neotel's New Products Group (NPG), formed in 2005, addresses the problems of how to conduct business electronically with the same certainty as in the paper world. Neotel was granted a Canadian patent for the SignHere™ identity capture and authentication system.
