Sponsored by

LANGHORNE, PA, April 29, 2008 -- Optellios Inc., a leading fiberoptic technology company and manufacturer of the FiberPatrol® line of intrusion detection and communication products, announced that it has completed the first installation in a project to secure a public water utility in the state of Florida. Optellios won a 2.7 million dollars contract for the project in Dec. of 2007, following a public bid process.

As part of the project, Optellios is providing, installing, and integrating perimeter intrusion detection systems at county water facilities. Individual projects involve several different models of FiberPatrol intrusion detection products, including multi-zone and location-sensing systems for perimeter fence and wall applications. Installation at one major water treatment plant has been completed, with another one underway. Optellios will also supply and deploy its FiberPatrol Remote Alarm Management System for centralized monitoring of these and future sites.

"We are pleased to deliver on our first major contract of 2008. The newest project adds to our impressive track record of securing public water utilities and other types of critical infrastructure," said Jay Patel, CEO of Optellios. "Our products and our integrated security solutions have been deployed at dozens of water treatment facilities, contributing to a stellar reputation of performance and customer satisfaction," added Dr. Patel.

Using cutting edge technology, FiberPatrol intrusion detection systems analyze the slightest disturbances in fiberoptic sensor cables. FiberPatrol location-sensing systems in addition have a unique ability to pinpoint the precise location of a perimeter breach. One such system can monitor the entire perimeter of a facility, with solution available for fence, wall, in-ground, and mixed applications. The FiberPatrol Remote Alarm Management System (FPRAMS) integrates intrusion detection and video surveillance components across multiple sites into a single enterprise-wide perimeter security solution. The FPRAMS activates PTZ camera presets, triggers video recording, and alerts security personnel in response to an intrusion alarm.

Optellios Inc. is a provider of advanced solutions for sensing, security, and communication.
