                                                                                                          FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

             Advantech Announces Significant Enhancement to its
                            IP Routing Suite

       February 26, 2008, Montreal, Canada - Advantech AMT Inc, a leading provider of
       advanced satellite and microwave products and solutions, announces immediate
       availability of a significant enhancement to its IP routing suite.

       In addition to standard static routes and RIP/RIP2 support, Advantech is also
       introducing new routing capability with addition of state-of-the-art Open Shortest
       Path First (OSPF) routing suite. The Open Shortest Path First (OSPFv2) protocol is a
       link-state routing protocol designed to be run internally on a single autonomous IPv4
       system. Each router designated to run OSPF maintains an identical database
       describing the autonomous system's topology. From this database, a routing table is
       calculated by constructing a shortest- path tree. OSPF has been added to all of
       Advantech’s IP capable interface cards and is available across Advantech’s entire
       modem lines.

       “Our new OSPF capability demonstrates our continuing efforts to provide seamlessly
       transitioning of terrestrial and satellite based IP routing protocols.” stated Mr. Vagan
       Shakhgildian, President of Advantech AMT, “This further demonstrates our
       willingness to integrate advanced features which bring value to our customers and
       system integrators.”
