    LSI Named Finalist in Storage Networking World's Spring 2009 'Best Practices in Storage' Awards ProgramLSI file storage consolidation project recognized for reducing data center power and cooling requirements, footprint and management overhead

    MILPITAS, Calif., April 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- LSI Corporation today announced that it has been selected as a finalist in the Spring 2009 "Best Practices in Storage" Awards Program by Storage Networking World (SNW) in conjunction with IDG's Computerworld and the Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA). The honor recognizes the LSI IT organization's innovative use of storage technology in the category of "Selecting and Deploying Storage Networks."

    LSI has been chosen as a finalist for its File Storage Consolidation project, which was designed to cut costs and increase efficiency by reducing the number and types of file storage systems under management. LSI IT implemented a solution consisting of LSI(TM) Engenio(R) storage systems and ONStor(TM) Clustered NAS Gateway products in a scalable and highly available standard configuration that will be deployed at LSI data centers around the world.

    The project has allowed system consolidation from 20 to 10 racks and reduced data center power consumption by 53 percent per terabyte (TB). As a result, the company was able to nearly double storage capacity, from 129 TB to 240 TB, while at the same time reducing the total power requirement by 11 percent - delivering a projected energy cost savings of more than $33,000 per year.

    "At a time when cost savings are crucial, storage initiatives that deliver quantifiable, real-world efficiencies are extremely important," said Ron Milton, executive vice president of Computerworld. "LSI is a finalist in the 'Best Practices in Storage' Awards Program because they demonstrated their ability to deliver on the promise of networked storage."

    SNW's "Best Practices in Storage" Awards Program identifies and acknowledges excellence among users of storage IT solutions and approaches. Judges evaluate and rank the finalists against a set of criteria such as return on investment, strategic importance to the business, interoperability and platform integration, and accommodation for future deployments.

    The finalists and top honoree in each category will be recognized on the main stage during the SNW Awards Program Ceremony on Tuesday, April 7, at SNW Spring 2009, in the Rosen Shingle Creek in Orlando, Fla.

    China Education Alliance's on-line business generated 70.3% of its total revenue for the fourth quarter of 2008 versus 65.4% for the same period the prior year. Its training center business generated 21.2% of its total revenue for the fourth quarter of 2008 versus 23.6% for the same period the prior year and its advertising business generated the remaining 8.5% of its total revenue for the fourth quarter of 2008 versus 10.9% for the same period the prior year.

    "Our online education, training center, and advertising businesses have experienced rapid growth during the fourth quarter of 2008; the training center business generated particularly dramatic growth due to our rapid expansion of our vocational education business," commented Mr. Xiqun Yu, Chairman and CEO of China Education Alliance. "The strong growth of our online education business was mainly driven by our success in replicating our online business model in the other provinces of the PRC from our dominant position in the Heilongjiang province."

    Online education revenue was $6.4 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008, an increase of 105.3% from $3.1 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2007, reflecting the strong demand for our downloadable education materials on the Internet. Training center revenue for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008 was $1.9 million, up 71.6% from $1.1 million in the fourth quarter last year, mainly driven by more extensive face-to-face tutoring courses for middle and high school students, as well as strong demand for our on-site vocational education services. Advertising revenue was $0.8 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008, an increase of 49.3% from $0.5 million for the fourth quarter the prior year, due to the rapid development of the Internet as an important media for advertising. The favorable exchange rate between US$ and RMB has also contributed to our net income and increase in our advertising revenue.

    Overall cost of sales increased 141.4% to $2.0 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008, compared to $0.8 million for the same period in fiscal 2007. Gross profit increased to $7.2 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008, an increase of 80.6% from $4.0 million for the same quarter in fiscal 2007. Gross margin for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008 was 78%, as compared to a record 82.6% for the same quarter a year ago. The online education gross margin decreased to 78.8% in fourth quarter of fiscal 2008 from 84.2% for the same period in fiscal 2007. The training center gross margin decreased to 69.1% for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008 from 73.6% for the same period last year. Advertising gross margin increased to 93.7% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008 from 91.9% for the same period in 2007.

    Selling expenses increased 40.2% to $2.5 million for the fourth quarter in fiscal 2008, compared to $1.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2007, due to increased expenses in building our marketing team and higher debit card agency expenses. General and administrative ("G&A") expenses were $0.6 million for the fourth quarter in fiscal 2008, a decrease from $0.9 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2007, primarily due to a decline in bonuses paid in the fourth quarter of 2008 compared to the prior year. As a percentage of revenue, G&A expenses decreased to 6.2% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008, down from 19% in the same period of last year.

    Operating income in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008 increased to $3.9 million, from $1.1 million in the same period a year ago. Operating margin was 42.2% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008.

    Net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008 was $3.6 million, as a result of strong development in our three business segments and $0.11 million in warrants and stock option compensation for services as well as $0.13 million in non-cash liquidation damages related to the May 2007 private placement financing, compared to a loss of $1.4 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2007. Adjusting for non-cash expenses, fourth quarter of fiscal 2008 non-GAAP net income was $0.24 million, or $0.01 per fully diluted share.

    Fiscal Year 2008 Financial Results

    For the fiscal year 2008, total revenue was $24.9 million, an increase of 43.5% from the prior year. Online education revenue was $16.7 million, an increase of 45.2% from $11.5 million, which represented 67.2% of our total revenue. The training center business contributed 22.3% of revenue or $5.6 million, an increase of 50.1% from $3.7 million in fiscal 2007. Our advertising business contributed 10.4% of revenue or $2.6 million, an increase of 22.3% from $2.1 million in fiscal 2007.

    Gross profit for fiscal year 2008 was $20 million, an increase of 44.3% from gross profit of $13.8 million in fiscal 2007. Gross margin was 80% for fiscal 2008 compared to 79.6% for fiscal 2007. Income from operations was $10 million for fiscal 2008, an increase of 59.7% from $6.3 million in fiscal 2007. Net income for the fiscal 2008 was $9.9 million, or $0.40 per fully diluted share, compared to $3.1 million, or $0.14 per fully diluted share in fiscal 2007.

    Financial Condition

    As of December 31, 2008, China Education Alliance had $23.4 million in cash and cash equivalents, $25.4 million in working capital, and no long-term debt. Shareholders' equity was $33.7 million, an increase from $18.6 million on December 31, 2007. We generated $9.8 million in cash flow from operating activities in fiscal 2008.

    Business Outlook China Education Alliance has three main business components: 1) The Company provides downloadable resources to primary and secondary students via the Internet and also provides on-site teaching services. At present, the Company has expanded its Internet business to Jilin, Liaoning and Inner Mongolia. In 2009, the Company will try to develop its online business in Beijing, Hebei, Henan and other places as well as maintain its existing market share. We will endeavor to expand our on-site training services to more areas to allow more students receive instruction from our teachers. In addition, we will strongly expand circulation of our newspaper, "Scientific Discovery," to strengthen our brand name recognition. 2) In the field of vocational education, on the one hand, we plan to expand our vocational education in the Heilongjiang province by providing IT and clerical training. On the other hand, the Company, through a strategic cooperation with the Chinese Vocational Education Society (NAVEC), aims to address the high unemployment rate among college students. We introduced the "Millions of College Students Employment Crossroad" program, which received positive support from the public and universities. We plan to promote the program, which comprises nine modules: the living environment, business analysis and business strategy, marketing management, enterprise management, enterprise management philosophy, human resources management, corporate culture construction, finance and capital management, supply chain and production management, entrepreneurs, self-cultivation arts and so on. This program runs for 60 days and well known management gurus such as Wen Yuankai, Chen Fang, Ai Feng, Qu Min Li, and Wang Zhongqiu are invited to lecture. This program is carried out in Beijing and we have year-round training contracts with a lot of well-known domestic Chinese companies. In the first quarter of 2009, China Education Alliance will help the Chinese Vocational Education Society (NAVEC) and the world's largest professional certification, the United Kingdom's City & Guilds London Association, achieve strategic and cooperative relations. In addition, NAVEC will obtain the exclusive right in the People's Republic of China to conduct the International Trainer, Automotive Engineers, International English Teacher Qualification, Foreign-related Clerical and Administrative Qualifications and Qualifications of the International Institute for Management Level examinations. 3) In the field of foreign language training, we plan to set up new WEI operations centers nationwide to carry out high-end English language training. In addition, we have reached a verbal agreement with the world's largest professional certification authority, the United Kingdom's City & Guilds London Association (formal agreement will be signed in the first quarter of 2009). WEI is expected to promote International Professional English and Oral English Level Examinations beginning the second quarter of 2009. The program aims to help university students and professional people obtain professional knowledge and professional skills certificates.

    "In 2009, we will maintain and expand our market, because we have three educational business segments that are complementary of each other. We will continue our development and are very optimistic about the prospects in 2009," said China Education Alliance's CEO, Mr. Xiqun Yu.

    ROCKVILLE, Md., April 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Lockheed Martin Corporation has been selected by the General Services Administration (GSA) to compete for future information technology task orders under its next generation Alliant contracting vehicle.

The combination is designed to effectively and efficiently support all federal government agencies' needs in their daily operations, protection of infrastructure, the fight against terrorism and the development and marketing of emerging technologies.

    Lockheed Martin currently holds the Millennia contract, awarded in 1999, for which the company provides Software Engineering, Communications, and Systems Integration services. Lockheed Martin currently provides IT solutions and services through a number of Millennia task orders with the Department of Defense and other federal agencies. Included are major support contracts with the U.S. Central Command and Army Information Technology Agency.

    Research for the 2009 Everything Channel Five-Star Partner Program Guide was conducted by Everything Channel's Institute for Partner Education & Development (IPED). IPED analyzed 130 vendor programs rating vendors' responses to nearly 60 in-depth questions about their partner programs in the six elements of sales support, marketing support, partner profitability, channel operations, communications and partner recruitment. To ensure fair comparisons, companies were placed in one of four categories based on company size. IPED weighted the responses to each question about such program elements as sales support and partner recruitment so that the total weight given to a vendor's answers in any of the six elements can potentially be scored as high as 100. The weighting scheme varies depending on the company size and product type and is based on IPED proprietary analysis methodology and intellectual property. In each of the four company categories, the companies with the highest overall weighted scores received the Everything Channel Five-Star Program designation.

    CyberDefender 2008 Sales More Than Doubled Compared With Prior Year as Sales Increased Quarter by Quarter; Monthly New Licensed Customers Grew More Than 2300% From January Through Year EndIn Fourth Quarter Of 2008 Sales And Customer Licenses Grew 45% Compared With The Third QuarterInternet Security Provider Believes That New Emerging Threats Such As Conficker Worm Will Continue To Drive Demand For Innovative Technology

    LOS ANGELES, April 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CyberDefender Corporation, (BULLETIN BOARD: CYDE) , a provider of award-winning PC security and identity theft prevention solutions, today announced a significant increase in full year and fourth quarter results for the period ended December 31, 2008.

    According to the Company, sales increases were generated quarter over quarter during the year, and led to a more than doubling of year over year sales from $2,220,154 in 2007 to $4,887,759 in 2008.

    Additionally, monthly new customer licensed acquisitions for 2008 grew 2300% from the start of the year through the end of December. The Company believes that a large percentage of these new customers will renew their subscriptions in 2009.

    In the fourth quarter of 2008, cash receipts from the sale of new licenses increased to $3,600,451 from $2,506,534 in the third quarter and $981,545 in the second quarter of 2008. Newly licensed customers and sales in the fourth quarter grew 45% as compared with the third quarter of the year.

    $6 Million Increase In Advertising Expenditures

    The Company said that during the year, as a further significant step in its development, advertising expenditures grew from just over $600,000 to more than $7 million, which was the key factor in widening the Company's year over year loss from $5,866,123 in 2007 to $11,251,772 last year. The Company expects that advertising expenditures will increase during 2009.

    Further Growth Gains This Year Unaffected By the Economy

    Commenting on these results, Mr. Gary Guseinov, CEO of CyberDefender stated, "We were very pleased with the quarter by quarter growth experienced throughout the year. We believe that these results show that we have a product that is increasingly being recognized as a simple and effective way to combat and provide early detection against internet threats, including new emerging threats such as the recent Conficker Worm."

    "In our final quarter of 2008," he added, "we experienced a significant increase in new users and paying customers. We believe that our financial strength will increase during 2009, as we intend to be even more aggressive in our marketing efforts to build further on our success in 2008. Our belief is very strong that we will continue to grow, even in this difficult economy."

    Times Herald-Record Launches My Ride Web Show on Record Online

    MIDDLETOWN, N.Y., April 1 /PRNewswire/ -- My Ride, a section on recordonline.com and in the Times Herald-Record newspaper targeted at Hudson Valley car enthusiasts, has added a weekly video show to its online offerings.

    Since it's inception, My Ride has always been focused on featuring the automotive passions of Hudson Valley readers, and the section has grown from simply featuring reader's photos in the Times Herald-Record to a full-fledged interactive experience in print and online. In addition to reader-submitted photos, reader polls, a blog, and event and club listings, the section hosts "Ride of the Month" and "Ride of the Year" contests, plus a My Ride Jr. feature that showcases the automotive pursuits of the area's younger readers.

    The new Web show was a natural next step for Donna Kessler, a Times Herald-Record reporter and My Ride's creator and caretaker.

    "Running once a week in the newspaper, I needed another venue in order to get breaking news and weekend event announcements out to the local bike and car enthusiasts," Kessler said. "People love to watch videos, so why not do a type of news show every week. Lo and behold, the 'My Ride Web Show' was born."

    Produced by Multimedia Editor John Pertel, each show lasts about 4 or 5 minutes, and features Kessler discussing upcoming car shows and cruises and stories of interest to the My Ride audience. NHRA news and results were recently added, and updates about Oakland Valley Race Park will soon be added into the mix.

    "My Ride has done a wonderful job at targeting a niche audience that was lacking before we launched it," said Erik Gliedman, online news editor for the Times-Herald Record. "In launching the webcast we took another step in making this feature the number one online destination for custom car and bike fans in the Hudson Valley."

    Verizon Wireless to Join China Mobile, SOFTBANK and Vodafone in Creating the Largest Global Platform for Mobile DevelopersInitiative to Help Developers in Creating Fun and Useful Mobile Widgets for Approximately 1 Billion Customers

    LAS VEGAS and BASKING RIDGE, N.J., April 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Verizon Wireless announced today that it plans to join the Joint Innovation Lab (JIL) established by China Mobile, SOFTBANK and Vodafone to help accelerate the uptake of innovative mobile technologies on a mass-market scale.

    The addition of Verizon Wireless, a joint venture of Verizon Communications and Vodafone, would mean that the JIL now has a combined customer reach of approximately 1 billion consumers.

    The JIL will initially focus on creating a single global platform for developers to encourage the creation of a wide range of innovative and useful mobile widgets. These mobile widgets will be capable of enhancing the mobile Internet experience on a variety of smartphones as well as mid- and low-cost handsets on multiple operating systems.

    As part of this initiative, the JIL plans to launch later this year a range of tools to encourage innovation among global mobile developers. The tools include: a common mobile widgets specification; easy-to-use developer kits; and an online repository, distribution and payment mechanism to ensure developers can roll out their products to customers in more than 70 countries across North America, Asia, Europe and Africa.

    "This partnership will enable four of the world's leading mobile operators to pool their combined expertise, innovation and scale for the gain of customers across the globe," said JIL Chairman Masayoshi Son. "As well as driving innovation in the mobile developer world, this initiative is set to empower consumers by giving them access to a range of easy-to-use and compelling Web applications that will enable them to get even more benefits from their handsets."

    Mobile widgets are capable of boosting handset functionality as well as transforming the look and feel of a device to give customers quick and easy access to valued content. They are personalized, always-accessible mini applications that sit on a handset to retrieve relevant information from the Web such as weather reports, sports updates and travel timetables.

    The JIL mobile widgets specification is set to enrich these services further by enabling developers to access both handset and network functionality such as the address book, camera, location information and billing in a secure environment.

    The JIL has been working in close cooperation with a range of industry standards bodies such as the OMTP and the GSMA to outline specifications that will make it easier for developers to create widgets that run on a wide range of handsets, operating systems and networks.

    The JIL also welcomes the co-operation of vendors, developers and other operators in the creation of new applications and services.

    Ener1 Joins New Clean-Tech Consortium - Energy Systems NetworkIndiana Based Alliance To Support the Development of Electric Drive in

    INDIANAPOLIS, April 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Ener1, Inc. , the only lithium-ion battery manufacturer with commercial-scale production facilities in the United States of automotive grade quality, today announced its membership to the newly launched Energy Systems Network (ESN), an Indiana-based consortium bringing together national energy leaders, manufacturing executives, state officials and civic leaders to create new economic opportunities and strengthen energy independence by advancing the electric drive vehicle industry.

    (Logo: http://www.newscom.com/cgi-bin/prnh/20080312/CLW018LOGO)

    "This is the largest and most comprehensive battery and electric vehicle consortium anywhere in the U.S. to date, encompassing all the key components of electric drive, from power plant to batteries to the crucial components of the vehicle," said Ener1 Chairman and CEO Charles Gassenheimer, who will join the ESN Board of Directors.

    Paul Mitchell, former policy advisor to Governor Mitch Daniels of Indiana, will serve as President and CEO of the ESN. Joe Loughrey, former Vice-Chairman of Cummins, will chair the initiative. In addition to Gassenheimer, the ESN board includes: James E. (Jim) Rogers, Chairman and CEO, Duke Energy; Jeff Owens, President and CEO, Delphi Safety and Electronics; Mike Hudson, President, I-Power Technologies; John Waters, President and CEO, Bright Automotive; France Cordova, President, Purdue University; Thomas Snyder, President, Ivy Tech Community College; and Mark Miles, President and CEO, Central Indiana Corporate Partnership.

    "Bringing together all these key elements reinforces Indiana's increasingly crucial role as pivotal player in transforming the U.S. automotive industry from gasoline to electric and hybrid power," said Snyder, who is also a Board member of Ener1. "We see a tremendous opportunity to help prepare a skilled workforce for tomorrow's careers in the clean-tech sector."

    The ESN is already pursuing two significant projects: the Hoosier Heavy Hybrid Partnership, focused on bringing medium- and heavy-duty hybrid vehicles to market; and Project Plug-IN, which will integrate plug-in electric vehicles and 'smart grid' technologies for a group of central Indiana commuters in one of the nation's first large-scale pilot projects. Private and institutional investors have already pledged nearly $1.5 million to support the ESN's activities over the next two years.

    Verizon's Seidenberg: Wireless Industry Innovation Can Help Put U.S. Economy Back on Path to Growth

    LAS VEGAS, April 1 /PRNewswire/ -- A new business model is emerging that will make the next 25 years of wireless industry growth and innovation every bit as dynamic as the first 25 years -- an outcome that can be hugely beneficial to the U.S. economy, according to Ivan Seidenberg, chairman and CEO of Verizon Communications Inc. .

    In an address to the CTIA wireless conference here on Wednesday (April 1), Seidenberg said that Verizon, from its position as the nation's largest wireless provider, sees the industry on the verge of a tipping point that will unleash the growth potential of next-generation wireless technology.

    "I do not mean to minimize the challenges we face -- as an industry or a country -- as we try to get our economy going again," Seidenberg said. "But wireless innovation has been a foundation of our country's prosperity for the last 25 years, and I'm confident that this great and vibrant industry will continue to be a leader as we put our economy back on the path to growth."

    He said that as the wireless industry harnesses the full innovative power of its technology, it can provide a new set of tools for addressing social issues, such as improving public safety, making businesses more productive, saving energy, improving the quality and reducing the cost of health care, and using wireless broadband to expand the economic opportunities of the digital era more broadly across society.

    Common Issues

    Seidenberg also warned that this growth and progress could be derailed, and he urged the wireless industry to focus on common issues and rally around creative solutions that will create value for customers and opportunity across the whole industry.

    One challenge he cited was the need to come together on compatibility and standards. He said the market is pressing the wireless industry toward openness and compatibility, which would standardize the environment for application development. He called the global standards for LTE (long-term evolution, the next generation of wireless broadband technology) "a big step" in that direction.

    A second challenge he cited was the need to maintain an environment conducive to continued investment and competition.

    "All of us understand the pressures that policymakers face in an era of big deficits and slow growth," he said. "But we need to be very careful that government does not to try to fix short-term needs at the expense of long-term growth, which happens every time it raises taxes or imposes new regulations."

    He noted that taxes on wireless services from 2003-2007 rose four times faster than for other goods and services, and he said that the industry still sees roadblocks that stand in the way of capital investment.

    Another common issue Seidenberg cited was the need to come together to use the technological resources of the wireless industry to ensure national security and public safety by creating a 21st-century communications system for first-responders.

    He said: "The key is to give public safety agencies the spectrum they need to meet their current and future needs -- and, eight years out from 9/11, we cannot afford to wade through another round of auctions and redundant network construction to get there. Fortunately, there's another answer: assigning the D-block spectrum directly to state and local public safety agencies, then letting them work with local network providers to create the robust, interoperable system this country needs."

    'Next Wave of Wireless Growth'

    If common challenges are addressed, Seidenberg said, he sees the industry on the cusp of "the next wave of wireless growth." He said that Verizon has several initiatives under way to help lead the industry to this next level.

    Seidenberg said that the fourth-generation LTE technology that Verizon Wireless is deploying throughout its network "will speed the transition to a truly globalized mobile broadband experience."

    "LTE is quickly emerging as the global standard," Seidenberg said. "We're moving fast to get to 4G. Working with Vodafone, we've completed the market trials and standards work. We will begin deployment later this year with a few commercially-ready markets and will roll it out to 25 or 30 markets in 2010, with the expectation of faster rollout thereafter."

    This infrastructure is "just one piece of the puzzle," he added. "It's the combination of devices, applications and network capabilities that will really cause this market to take off. No single company will be able to envision, let alone provide, every aspect of this whole 4G ecosystem on its own. That's why we're working with partners, entrepreneurs and inventors from across the industry to create the next-generation products and services."

    At the end of 2007, Verizon announced its Open Development program -- a process for certifying new wireless devices, software and applications to run on its networks. Seidenberg said the company has so far certified 36 devices through this model, with more in the pipeline. "We expect this process to really rev up as we deploy 4G," he said.

    In another initiative designed to fill up the LTE pipeline, Seidenberg said Verizon plans to launch the Verizon Wireless LTE Innovation Center later this year as an incubator for new products in the areas of consumer electronics, telematics and machine-to-machine products for health care, security and utility metering.

    Verizon Communications Inc. , headquartered in New York, is a leader in delivering broadband and other wireline and wireless communication innovations to mass market, business, government and wholesale customers.

    Motorola LTE Live Drive Debuts in Las Vegas at CTIA Wireless 2009700MHz demonstration network replicates successful 2.6GHz live LTE experience in Barcelona to deliver rich media experiences

    LAS VEGAS, April 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CTIA WIRELESS 2009 -- Motorola, Inc., today announced it has deployed a live 700MHz Long Term Evolution (LTE) demonstration network in Las Vegas to show the how the next generation of wireless broadband technology created by the 3GPP standards body can deliver true personal media experiences. During the Motorola LTE drive tour visitors will experience the real-life performance of LTE in an urban environment including site-to-site hand-over and a number of demanding applications running over LTE.

    The demonstrations will include High Definition (HD) video blogging to Motorola's booth, streaming HD video, online gaming, music, maps, and a collection of high-bandwidth and low-latency Internet-based applications.

    Motorola set up the physical equipment and successfully deployed the LTE demo-ready network and commercial video systems in less than two weeks. This accomplishment is a testament to the accuracy of Motorola's network planning capabilities and the expertise in Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) and all-IP wireless technology it has acquired through commercial deployments of wireless broadband networks around the world. The accuracy of network planning and the speed of deployment are key factors in reducing the operational expense (OPEX) involved in deploying an LTE network.

    "Motorola has once again demonstrated the maturity of our LTE solution and our ability to quickly deploy a live mobile broadband network in a real world environment," said Fred Wright, senior vice president, Motorola Home & Networks Mobility. "As demand for mobile broadband continues to grow, we're seeing great operator interest in LTE because it can deliver data at a lower cost per bit."

    The drive tour showcases Motorola's latest OFDM-based wireless network infrastructure utilizing 700MHz antennas from Andrew and an LTE test mobile provided by Aeroflex. The Aeroflex TM500 LTE test mobile provides a platform for replicating LTE handsets prior to the availability of commercial devices and also demonstrates Motorola's network maturity and compliancy to the LTE standards.

    Further LTE demonstrations at the Motorola booth include: -- Static display of the newly launched LTE WBR 500r eNodeB base site -- CDMA to LTE handoff - demonstrating how LTE successfully enhances and integrates with existing cellular networks -- Informative presentations illustrating how LTE cost/bit, video capacity, and sector throughput vs. peak rate, offer compelling reasons to go directly to LTE sooner -- Video demonstrations that showcase Motorola's industry leading QoS capabilities for media distribution integrated in a live LTE network

    Motorola is actively involved in LTE trials with operators in North America, Europe and Asia, and recently launched a new lab and trial network in the U.K. Motorola also conducts LTE research and development efforts with lab facilities in China and North America, has committed to development of TD-LTE and FDD-LTE solutions, and remains on track for the first commercial release of its LTE solutions for 700 MHz and 2.6GHz this year.

    LTE is based on OFDM, a next-generation radio frequency technology that has high spectral efficiency, and utilizes an all-IP flat architecture. This results in increased capacity and delivers a lower cost per bit allowing operators to offer true mobile broadband to consumers at an affordable price. The introduction of low latency, high speed LTE networks will enable users to take a personal mobile broadband experience with them virtually where ever they go.

    inTEST Announces Preliminary Year End 2008 Results and Retention of Financial Advisor

    CHERRY HILL, N.J., April 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- inTEST Corporation , an independent designer, manufacturer and marketer of semiconductor automatic test equipment (ATE) interface solutions and temperature management products, today announced preliminary unaudited results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2008. All historical financial information presented in this document is unaudited, is based upon management's internal figures, and is subject to change.

    Net revenues for the quarter ended December 31, 2008 were $6.8 million, compared to $9.2 million for the third quarter of 2008. Our net loss for the fourth quarter of 2008 was $(4.7) million or $(0.47) per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $(2.0) million or $(0.22) per diluted share for the third quarter of 2008. The net loss for the fourth quarter of 2008 included charges for the impairment of certain long-lived assets of $(1.2) million or $(0.13) per diluted share, charges for the impairment of goodwill related to a prior acquisition of $(130,000) or $(0.01) per diluted share and restructuring charges of $(456,000) or $(0.05) per diluted share. The net loss for the third quarter of 2008 included charges for the impairment of certain long-lived assets of $(133,000) or $(0.01) per diluted share and restructuring charges of $(61,000) or $(0.01) per diluted share. The impairment and restructuring charges recorded during the third and fourth quarters of 2008 were incurred by our Manipulator and Docking Hardware and our Tester Interface product segments. The restructuring charges consist of one-time termination benefits, as a result of our recent workforce reductions in these segments, and facility closure costs, as a result of our decision to shut our manufacturing facility in Amerang, Germany and our sales office in the UK.

    Net revenues for the year ended December 31, 2008 were $38.8 million, compared to $48.7 million for 2007. Our net loss for the year ended December 31, 2008 was $(9.4) million or $(0.99) per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $(6.7) million or $(0.73) per diluted share for 2007. The net loss for 2008 included charges for the impairment of certain long-lived assets of $(1.4) million or $(0.15) per diluted share, charges for the impairment of goodwill related to a prior acquisition of $(130,000) or $(0.01) per diluted share and restructuring charges of $(717,000) or $(0.08) per diluted share. The net loss for 2007 included charges for the impairment of goodwill related to prior acquisitions of $(2.8) million or $(0.31) per diluted share and charges for the impairment of certain long-lived assets of $(535,000) or $(0.06) per diluted share. The impairment and restructuring charges recorded during 2008 were incurred by our Manipulator and Docking Hardware and our Tester Interface product segments. The restructuring charges consist of one-time termination benefits as a result of our recent workforce reductions in these segments, and facility closure costs, as a result of our decision to shut our manufacturing facility in Amerang, Germany and our sales office in the UK.

    Robert E. Matthiessen, President and Chief Executive Officer of inTEST commented, "The continuing weakness and turmoil of the macroeconomic environment that began in 2008, worsened in 2009, resulting in a significant reduction in equipment utilization rates in the semiconductor industry. Our bookings for the fourth quarter of 2008 decreased to $6.3 million as compared to $8.2 million in the third quarter. While we presently see some positive indicators in certain of our segments, we continue to remain focused on methods to restructure our business and reduce our cash burn. As a result of our continued operating losses in the first quarter of 2009, however, as of March 27, 2009, our cash and cash equivalents have declined to approximately $5.1 million."

    The Company also announced that in light of its ongoing evaluations of its business segments and cash requirements, it is unable to file its Form 10-K for the period ended December 31, 2008 within the prescribed period of time and has filed a Notification of Late Filing on Form 12b-25 with the SEC. The Company also anticipates that the report of its independent registered public accounting firm will express substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. The Company will hold a conference call with investors and analysts after it files it Annual Report on Form 10-K to discuss its fourth quarter and year end 2008 results and management's current expectations and views of the industry. An announcement of the date and time and call-in information will be made at that time.

    Mr. Matthiessen further stated that the Company has retained Amper, Politziner & Mattia, LLP as financial advisors to explore the Company's strategic alternatives to enhance operating performance and stockholder value. These initiatives may include further restructuring actions, a business combination or merger with a strategic or financial investor, the possible divestiture of certain under-performing assets and operations, or a transaction pursuant to which the Company would "go private."

    Lenel to Private Label OnSSI's IP Video Management SolutionSkyPoint Video Management Platform Provides Solution for Large Integrated Systems

    LAS VEGAS, April 1 /PRNewswire/ -- ISC West, Booth # 21061 -- A new user-friendly video management platform that provides software tools to seamlessly monitor and manage hundreds of cameras while simultaneously investigating video, is now available as a result of a partnership between Lenel Systems International Inc and On-Net Surveillance Systems (OnSSI). Lenel is part of UTC Fire & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. .

    In the new agreement Lenel will private-label OnSSI's video surveillance software, Ocularis, under the name SkyPoint.

    SkyPoint's intelligent, open-architecture IP video platform offers a simple, intuitive interface for desktop and control room video wall settings. It also offers integration potential with other aspects of security. A further benefit of the platform is that it requires fewer system operators to detect and respond to events, helping to reduce costs for users.

    "The system's interactivity and support for an optional touch screen offer unprecedented simplicity. With a single click or touch of a finger, the user can instantly investigate incidents and direct alerts between users. It's so easy to operate that it only takes a few minutes to train operators to be proficient," said Luis Orbegoso, President of Lenel.

    Orbegoso said that SkyPoint is ideal in environments where multiple cameras safeguard many security protection points and operators need to be able to see everything that is going on and respond appropriately. "Typical environments might be a transportation infrastructure or government facility, or enterprises with many security protection points to safeguard," he said.

    "The partnership between two industry leaders, Lenel in IP access control, and OnSSI in IP video management, reflects the great potential value and benefit that users will be able to derive from an open-architecture platform solution. We are pleased to enter into a partnership with Lenel and look forward to working with their talented team," said Gadi Piran, president and CTO of OnSSI. "Ultimately, Lenel's ability to integrate key components of the physical security solution set will enable the end-user enterprise to greatly improve security performance and efficiency," Piran added.

    Initially, SkyPoint will offer command-and-control of OnSSI IP Based video management solutions. Future releases of SkyPoint will allow control of Lenel's video solutions. Ultimately, elements of the SkyPoint user interface will be incorporated into the new generation of OnGuard, Lenel's core security management system.

    Lenel is demonstrating SkyPoint at the ISC West show in Las Vegas, April 1-3. SkyPoint will be commercially available through Lenel's global network of authorized value-added resellers. Current OnGuard users will be able to migrate their systems to the SkyPoint interface.

    Good Email Habits are Important: MAAWG Explains Messaging Reputation AssessmentAlso Takes on Botnet Mitigation, Mobile Spam, Public Policy Teamwork

    SAN FRANCISCO, April 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Your good email habits have become an important tool to help inbox providers and ISPs protect you and other customers from online fraud and spam. A new white paper for IT professionals and volume email senders from the Messaging Anti-Abuse Working Group (MAAWG) demystifies the messaging reputation technology now used by most large service providers to identify abusive and errant emails as junk mail.

    (Logo: http://www.newscom.com/cgi-bin/prnh/20070124/CLW180LOGO )

    "MAAWG Message Sender Reputation Concepts and Common Practices" explains how online behavior by a person or an organization can be used to calculate the likelihood a message is spam. Combined with other technologies, it is a powerful tool to improve email deliverability because it more precisely ties accountability to the sender's identity rather than analyzing message content, according to the paper's editor, Michael Adkins, co-chair of the MAAWG technical committee and AOL senior systems programmer.

    "Messaging reputation has evolved beyond the simple whitelist-blacklist approach to provide a more sophisticated range of responses than just 'good or bad.' As a result, fewer legitimate emails are tagged as junk while more fraudulent and annoying spam messages are kept out of inboxes, and the technology can also help service providers operate more efficiently," Adkins said.

    Just as a person's or company's behavior affects how they are perceived in the community, messaging reputation is based on a calculated evaluation of the identity's ongoing compliance with industry-accepted email practices. The white paper provides an overview of a messaging reputation system's assessment goals, models and algorithms. It was completed at the MAAWG 15th General Meeting in February and released to the industry today on the organization's Web site, http://www.maawg.org/.

    Security Needs Support Continued MAAWG Growth

    The organization's 15th meeting in San Francisco was one of its largest with 350 online security professionals from 10 countries and 130 companies collaborating against botnets, spam and all forms of abusive messaging. The 30 sessions over four days included a keynote by Washington Post journalist Brian Krebs sharing how his investigative reporting led to identifying McColo-hosted botnets; talks by ICANN representatives and Knujon's Bob Bruen on fighting domain abuse; and a session with FBI executives on finding and prosecuting botnet masters. User advocate Jayne Hitchcock of HaltAbuse.org spoke on educating customers.

    Other strategic projects from the meeting will be addressed in MAAWG committees over the next few months, including mobile spam reporting formats, botnet mitigation practices, and feedback loops to help providers estimate costs, among other issues. These and other topics will be featured at the MAAWG 16th General Meeting, June 9-11 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

    About the Messaging Anti-Abuse Working Group (MAAWG)

    The Messaging Anti-Abuse Working Group (MAAWG) is where the messaging industry comes together to work against spam, viruses, denial-of-service attacks and other online exploitation. MAAWG (http://www.maawg.org/) represents almost one billion mailboxes from some of the largest network operators worldwide. It is the only organization addressing messaging abuse holistically by systematically engaging all aspects of the problem, including technology, industry collaboration and public policy. MAAWG leverages the depth and experience of its global membership to tackle abuse on existing networks and new emerging services. Headquartered in San Francisco, Calif., MAAWG is an open forum driven by market needs and supported by major network operators and messaging providers.
