Beer -Sheva, ISRAEL - February 2005 - Yitran Communications, Ltd. (previously named ITRAN Communications Ltd), a leading provider of PLC (Power Line Communication) technology, has announced that it will be exhibiting its extremely low cost commercial version of the PITEL™ in -building Internet distribution PLC system, during the international CEBIT 2005 (March 10 -16, Hannover, Germany) and Convergence India 2005 (March 22 -24, New -Delhi, India) events.

The PITEL system is based on Yitran's high performance ITC1/ITM1 PLC chipset, providing robust communication over the existing electrical wires with no need for a dedicated communication infrastructure. Implementation is straightforward, fulfilling the needs of MDU (Multi -Dwelling Units) tenants, hotel guests and commercial offices.
Target markets for the PITEL include countries with emerging needs for quick implementation of low cost Internet distribution solutions, in Asia, East Europe, South America and additional parts of the world.

The system is comprised of 3 types of network elements: a base station unit connected to the backbone via standard Ethernet port, a repeater station (a relay unit) and a remote station (the CPE). A secure web based network management application provided as part of the system, supports standard web -browser interface, remote network configuration and remote network monitoring, all using standard tools and methodology.
Implementation of the system requires low capital investment and provides an instant revenue stream. With the base station in place (connected to a broadband backbone such as DSL/Cable modem) the building is ready. No need for expensive rewiring or post -wiring and no unnecessary redundant investment in connecting users that haven't joined the service yet. System's installation is non -disruptive and it does not require retrofitting the building for new wiring, so the building's decor can be kept intact.

PITEL is ideal for buildings, where wireless networking is not easily supported. The system enables service providers to avoid the time and expenses of wiring a costly dedicated communication infrastructure. Any electrical outlet in the apartment is turned into an Internet access port - Internet is quickly at hand at any receptacle.

"Yitran's PITEL mini -access system uses our high performance PLC technology to deliver high -speed Internet access over a building's existing electrical wiring for a cost -effective, scalable, and reliable means of enabling broadband connectivity", said Avner Matmor, Yitran's CEO. "Our PLC technology has been successfully used by our Japanese partners in pilot runs in high rise buildings in China for the same application, and is now offered in the form of a commercial system that incorporates all the required functionality and services, in a very competitive pricing".

Yitran's PITEL system enables service providers, VARs and OEMs, to offer an affordable high performance solution to system integrators, building owners, facility managers, hotel chains and commercial customers.
