TORONTO -- Trimax Corporation and its wholly owned subsidiary, PLC Network Solutions Inc. (PLC) (OTC BB:TMXO.OB - News), a leading provider of Broadband over Powerline (BPL) communication technologies, have signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) with IP Applications Corp. of Vancouver, BC, Canada, an expert in the management and delivery of business processes and services over the Internet.

IP Applications bring extensive BPL industry experience and will provide PLC with the operational support system (OSS), network management system (NMS) and Help Desk required to support customers and end users of PLC's robust BPL data, voice and video communications services.

"PLC was faced with the complexity and expense of developing and managing its own OSS, NMS and Help Desk platforms. Being able to confidently outsource that element of the business frees up time and resources, lets us focus on strategic plans, and accelerates our time to market exponentially," said Derek Pepler, President of Trimax/PLC. "We selected IP Applications after a comprehensive evaluation. Their professionalism and attention to detail made our decision that much easier."

BPL technology uses the existing electrical infrastructure to create a high-speed, broadband communication network which can be used for data, voice, and video applications. The emerging BPL market has been estimated to reach up to $2.5B by 2010 according to some industry research groups.

John Jacobson, President and CEO of IP Applications, said, "The BPL market is creating exciting new opportunities and we look forward to supporting PLC in the execution of large BPL deployments across Canada and the US, as well as helping lay the foundation for PLC's future IP voice and video application services."
