QED Connect Announces New Customer International Industries, Inc.

Omni Manager Improves VoIP Quality of Service

NASHUA, NH--(Marketwire - March 11, 2008) - QED Connect Inc. (PINKSHEETS: QEDC), an innovative Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) provider for the information security market, today announced that West Virginia-based International Industries, Inc. has chosen its flagship Omni Manager for Internet visibility, management and control. International Industries is a diversified group of companies that includes natural resources, manufacturing, hotels and real estate among its businesses. Omni Manager was implemented within the company's Coal and Lumber Division in support of its voice over IP (VoIP) initiative, as well as to provide tools for monitoring Internet usage and enforcing computer use policies.

"We were in the process of rolling out VoIP technology over a shared Internet connection and found that for some reason, the voice quality was not consistently as good as we needed," said Dan Logan, IT Manager, International Industries, Inc. "After implementing Omni Manager, we were able to trace the source of our loss of voice quality to several network users that at times were making extensive use of Internet radio or downloading videos and music to their networked computers. With Omni Manager, we were able to selectively block users from these sites and our voice quality has improved dramatically. We can also plan our network growth and resources more accurately with the visibility we've gained into computer usage."
