Telit Appoints Arrow Northern Europe as Official Distributor in the Nordic and Baltic Countries

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 9, 2005) - Telit Communications plc ("Telit" or "the Company") (AIM:TCM), the global wireless communications developer and distributor, announces that Arrow Nordic Northern Europe has been appointed as Telit's new distributor for its data products division to cover the Nordic and Baltic countries.

Telit's data products division designs, develops, manufactures, markets and sells a range of data cellular communication products for the machine to machine ("m2m") market. The Company's technology and products enable other equipment manufacturers and electronic devices to utilise the widely deployed GSM/GPRS cellular infrastructure to relay and accept information without human intervention. These products are used in areas such as Automated Meter Reading ("AMR"), fleet management, security, auto telematics , digital broadcasting, POS and vending.

Arrow, a Fortune 500 company with more than 11,500 employees worldwide, distributes its customer's technology solutions to a variety of markets, including telecommunications, information systems, automotive and transportation, medical and life sciences, industrial equipment, and consumer electronics.

The Nordic countries are currently seen to be at the front of the wireless rollout within Europe as can be seen in Sweden, where by law, all power meters will have to be equipped with wireless technology allowing for automated meter reading by 2008.

Karin M. Jensen, Marketing Director of Arrow Nordic commented: "Within the currently very competitive business of electronic component distribution, the products of Telit as a new franchise is a huge opportunity for us in the strongly growing market of Machine-to-Machine communication in the Nordics."

Oozi Cats, Chief Executive of Telit, commented: "With the appointment of Arrow Nordic, we are further extending our existing successful partnership with Arrow in Southern Europe. Through building on this relationship, and further expanding our presence within the Nordic and Baltic countries, Telit aims to become a prominent M2M solution provider.

"We are confident that this is the right partnership to further build on our strong reputation as a leading M2M module supplier."
