TORONTO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 10, 2007 -- Trimax Corporation and its wholly owned subsidiaries, Multi-Source Inc. (MSI) and PLC Network Solutions Inc. (PLC) (OTCBB: TMXO), leading providers of Broadband over PowerLine (BPL) communication technologies, are pleased to announce the appointment of Rashid Hasan as Senior Vice President of South Asia and Middle East Operations.

About Trimax/MSI/PLC Networks Inc.

Trimax and its wholly owned subsidiaries Multi-Source Inc. and PLC Networks Inc. are leading providers of Broadband over PowerLine (BPL) communication technologies. Trimax/MSI/PLC specializes in the development, distribution, implementation, and servicing technologies that use the power grid to deliver 128-bit encrypted high-speed symmetrical broadband for data, voice and video transmission. BPL is a disruptive communications technology that turns the existing ubiquitous power line infrastructure and common electrical wiring in commercial and residential buildings into a high-bandwidth network. Broadband is delivered simultaneously on a single platform, to every electrical outlet throughout the home or business. To connect, users simply plug a modem into any electrical outlet, and plug their computer, phone, security camera or IP device into the modem.

Since the building's electrical wiring becomes the backbone for a secure local area network, there is no need to install any new wiring in the walls. The company's technologies use the existing electrical wiring as a "smart" network to deliver broadband access to computers, video on demand (VOD), VoIP phones, surveillance cameras, elevator applications, IPTVs, smart meters (AMR), etc. as well as connect printers, faxes, entertainment systems, etc. on the hotel, office or home network. Installation is usually implemented in a matter of hours or days instead of weeks or months and avoids the expense and disruption to guests or tenants of opening walls and ceilings or drilling holes to run new cables. This technology has been successfully deployed around the globe, in hotels, homes, apartments, office towers, schools, hospitals, museums and government buildings. The company believes that BPL will be the next widely accepted communications technology. Trimax/MSI/PLC anticipates that the company and its devices will be at the forefront of this new technology revolution, which includes expanding its reach to bridge the digital divide throughout the world.
