EMRISE CORPORATION ANNOUNCES $370,000 ORDER
FOR NETWORK ACCESS EQUIPMENT FOR HARSH ENVIRONMENTS
Continues Roll Out of New Products; Result of Focus on Strategically Important Utilities Markets
DURHAM, NC – December 5, 2012 – EMRISE CORPORATION (OTCQB: EMRI), a multi-national manufacturer of defense and aerospace electronic devices and communications equipment, today announced a $370,000 order for a 3G/WiFi autonomous gateway product to be used in a harsh field environment in a new application by a large European electric utility. The order, which was secured from a longstanding customer, is expected to ship complete in the fourth quarter of 2012.
The new network access product ordered continues the roll out of new products by EMRISE in 2012 which has already included the Company’s new CIP-All product that was introduced earlier this year and qualified by a major European telecommunications company and a major European international utility company for use in their respective enterprise network applications.
EMRISE Chief Executive Officer Carmine T. Oliva said this order is a direct result of the Company’s focus on increasing its penetration of the growing utilities markets in Europe and the United States. He also noted that the network access products ordered are designed to meet the user’s specific requirements to meet the harsh environmental conditions met in the field.
“A key characteristic of our new network access products is that they can be readily adapted to meet the specific needs of a variety of utilities in Europe and in North America,” Oliva added. “It is because of their adaptability that we expect these new products will become a strategically important addition to our overall product range for the utilities markets and contribute to our revenue in these expanding markets going forward.”
