American Fibertek Displays Innovative Transmission Solutions at ISC West 2007

Las Vegas, NV (March 28, 2007) - American Fibertek, Inc. (AFI), the security industry's leading independent supplier of fiber optic transmission systems for security applications, is demonstrating its innovative network transmission system called V'nes (Video Network Enterprise Solution) here at ISC West. V'nes is the first and only integrated and standardized network transmission solution with an "open path" to truly integrate IP and analog systems operation. To support the V'nes initiative, AFI also announced the formation of several new alliances aimed at further developing new and unique network transmission solutions. AFI is also reaffirming its leadership role in point-to-point fiber solutions with the introduction of several new fiber products to its established product line.

"The migration to a IP platform for integrated video, voice and data is moving at a rapid pace as more security professionals realize the infinite system configuration possibilities networked platforms promise to deliver," said Jack Fernandes, President and CEO of AFI. "V'nes provides a comprehensive transmission solution that integrates technologies previously relegated to parallel industries such as IT. It's a network transmission solution ideal for professional security applications that require dedicated network infrastructure."

"American Fibertek will also continue to develop and expand our core point-to-point fiber optics products while we actively pursue innovative ways to enhance transmission technologies," continued Mr. Fernandes. "We are actively aligning our sales channel to provide the best go to market strategy that continues to support our longstanding sales partners and introduces a new and exciting sales strategy that supports the V'nes solution."

In support of its new direction and steadfast commitment to legacy systems and existing customers, American Fibertek is introducing the following at ISC West 2007:

V'nes Video Network Enterprise Solution is the security industry's first and only true network solution designed for dedicated security applications.
