Custom Network Designed for BURGER KING® Restaurants

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 8, 2007) - Radiant Communications Corp. ("Radiant") (TSX VENTURE:RCN), Canada's leading independent supplier of broadband solutions for business, today announced the completion of a private IP (Internet Protocol) based network for over 120 corporate BURGER KING® restaurants in Canada.

The Radiant private IP network enables BURGER KING® restaurants to securely and reliably connect each store to their head office, vendors, and other third party sites. The Cisco based network also allows BURGER KING® restaurants to run converged network applications such as digital voice, video surveillance, and inventory management over a completely secure and redundant private network.

"The Radiant private IP network allows us to better utilize our existing internet connections at each store by running network applications such as POS (Point of Sale) polling and inventory management in real-time," says Grant Sutherland, Business Systems Manager at Burger King Restaurants of Canada Inc. "Not only are we getting the most out of our existing in-store technology, but we are also leaving the door open for other converged applications such as VoIP and video surveillance. We chose Radiant because they offered a private solution with reliable and timely support and service for a mission critical application."

Radiant continues to be a leader in fully managed private networks to multi-location businesses across Canada. "Real-time inventory, security and staffing levels are becoming a growing trend in today's retail marketplace," says David Buffett, President and CEO of Radiant Communications.

Managed networks are not only connecting stores to head offices, but they're shaping the way our customers do business."
