GLENTEL Business Division Continues to Grow with Multiple Large Million-Dollar 
Projects to Start 2013 
BURNABY, BC, Dec. 27, 2012 /CNW/ - GLENTEL Inc.'s (TSX: GLN) Business Division 
continues its growth by signing four major contracts to start the 2013 year. 
Contracts include a $6 million project with The United Counties of Leeds and 
Grenville that will help upgrade the region's fire services communications 
system, a multimillion-dollar Manufacturers Rep Agreement (MR) with Motorola 
to upgrade security systems for the federal government, a $2.1 million joint 
venture with Tait Communications to improve emergency services communications 
for residents of Yellowknife, and a $1 million communications project at 
Jansen Lake mine in Saskatchewan, which is slated to be the world's largest 
potash mine. 
"These successful multiple projects show the Business Division's specialized 
expertise in providing turnkey private network communications solutions for 
our diverse customers from government, public safety and mining," stated Cary 
Skidmore, GLENTEL's Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer. 
The $6 million dollar project with Leads and Grenville will upgrade the 
region's fire departments' original analogue equipment with state of the art 
and reliable digital voice and paging communications systems using Motorola's 
mobile radio P-25 solution. The United Counties of Leeds and Grenville 
project, the single largest contract in the Business Division's history, will 
allow for more reliable service by individual fire departments and first 
responders. The new system will include a Global Positioning System (GPS) 
locator that will help keep track of first responder vehicles and identify 
locations of fires. 
Under the $2.1 million radio network agreement between the city of Yellowknife 
and Tait Communications, GLENTEL will be responsible for replacing and 
consolidating three existing radio systems used by individual departments into 
one centralized communications system. This will help emergency personnel 
address increasing demand for services by upgrading their voice and data 
equipment. This upgrade will be crucial in responding to any type of emergency 
from first responders/ambulance to a larger-scaled emergency. Extreme cold 
weather in Yellowknife, which is known to compromise the safety of its 
citizens, is the catalyst for this centralized communications system. 
Under the multimillion-dollar Manufacturers Rep Agreement (MR) with Motorola, 
the largest MR in Canadian history, GLENTEL will focus on the deployment, 
installation and servicing of the security upgrade for the Government of 
Canada. Motorola will be the primary driver of the $10 million contract, which 
will see the partnership install and distribute a new antenna system to help 
aid in public safety. 
Australian miner BHP Billiton Ltd. is developing the world's largest potash 
mine, estimated at a cost of $14 billion. GLENTEL will be responsible for 
building the towers and installing a MotoTRBO solution, a digital Motorola 
2-way radio voice and data communications system. The initial phase represents 
the first of four mines to be developed on the above portion of the mine. The 
potash deposit is believed to be the size of the city of Montreal.
