Mueller Systems Implements Managed Hosting Services From Internap

Bolsters Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) Performance and Security

CLEVELAND, N.C., Oct. 31, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mueller Systems has
partnered with IT infrastructure provider Internap to enhance the performance
of its two-way advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) network, the Mi.Net®
Mueller Infrastructure Network for Utilities. Mueller Systems, a division of
Mueller Co., is a leading provider of innovative water infrastructure products
and services and technologically advanced metering systems for water, electric
and gas systems.

"Partnering with Internap for high-performance managed hosting services should
enable users to more quickly and reliably access metering data through
Mi.Host, the Mi.Net System's server and user interface software, without
having to manage their own server environments," said Hassan Ali, Vice
President and General Manager of Mueller Systems. "This enhancement will allow
users to focus more on important water infrastructure improvements instead of
worrying about whether or not they have enough server space to support the
system."

Internap's scalable Managed Hosting solution is supported by its Performance
IP™ service, which ensures fast, reliable Internet connectivity. Performance
IP™ leverages numerous major carrier networks worldwide to provide diverse
Internet routes in conjunction with Internap's patented Managed Internet Route
Optimizer™ technology, which analyzes network performance characteristics to
deliver customer traffic over the fastest, most reliable networks available in
real-time.

The Mi.Net System enables utilities to improve operational efficiencies and
customer service by fully automating the meter reading-to-billing process and
linking meters, distribution sites and control devices in a single data
network. It provides on-demand meter readings, e-mail alerts and alarms based
upon near real-time information as well as the ability for utilities to better
manage their water and electric resources through on-going access to custom
data and information.

Mueller Systems is a subsidiary of Mueller Water Products, Inc. (NYSE:MWA), a
leading North American manufacturer and marketer of products and services that
are used in the transmission, distribution and measurement of water, and
offers a full line of residential, fire line and commercial meters, AMI and
automatic meter reading (AMR) systems and related products that optimize the
delivery and use of water and energy.
