Uruguay Deploys Sirit IDentity 5100 RFID-Based Tolling System

12/8/08 - Sirit Inc. (TSX: SI) announced that its IDentity 5100 readers and transponders have been selected for deployment on the only automated toll road in Uruguay.

Corporacion Vial del Uruguay (CVU), a government agency responsible for overseeing Uruguay's National Highway Concession program, has finalized plans to upgrade the Toll Collection System in all of the toll plazas operating in Uruguay, selecting Sirit IDentity 5100 readers and transponders, which are based on ISO 18000-6C open protocol and designed for long-range, high speed automatic vehicle identification ("AVI") applications.

The automated toll system installation is a cooperative effort between Telsis S.A, a Uruguay based company, and Telectronica ( ), a company with AVI installations in South America and Mexico, in conjunction with support from Sirit.

The selection process for the AVI system was managed by CVU, who conducted a thorough evaluation of potential AVI solutions and narrowed the equipment down to two suppliers. Both prospective systems were installed and comprehensive tests were carried out in the presence of officials and technical staff from each of the participating organizations. In the final evaluation, Sirit's IDentity 5100 solution was selected for its advanced performance and reliability.

"The selection of the Sirit IDentity 5100 readers and transponders as the solution of choice recognizes the superior performance of Sirit's AVI products and confirms the industry's move towards standards-based solutions for global AVI applications," said Wolf Bielas, President, Latin America, Sirit.

Phase one of the deployment included 12 readers and 20,000 transponders operating on Uruguay's main highway, connecting the City of Montevideo with the City of Punta del Este. At the completion of phase two of the installation by mid-2009, a total of 40 readers will be installed connecting the entire road system in Uruguay with a single centralized AVI system using Sirit readers and tags.

"What's exciting about the installation is the fact that Uruguay will be using a single RFID system enabling the use of the existing infrastructure and paving the way to deploying solutions for a number of other applications, such as parking, heavy vehicle weight systems and truck identification," said Edgardo Ventura, President, Telectronica.

Sirit Inc. (TSX: SI) is a leading provider of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology worldwide. Harnessing the power of Sirit's enabling-RFID technology, customers are able to more rapidly bring high quality RFID solutions to the market with reduced initial engineering costs.
