MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 18, 2005) -

Customer Base Grows as Organizations Continue to Empower Field Workers with Critical Wireless Applications

Radio IP Software, a leader in wireless data connectivity solutions announced today that it has signed two new utility customers, which includes Southside Electric Cooperative in Virginia and Northeast Utilities in Connecticut, allowing them to empower their field workers with the implementation of mobile data technology.

"Southside Electric Coop selected Radio IP MTG as it is the only product on the market today that provides TCP/IP and web-based connectivity with enhancements for network load and throughput over a Motorola ASTRO IV&D network," said Mike Bourre, Vice President of Sales & Marketing at Radio IP Software.
