CENTENNIAL, Colo. -- January 8, 2013

Kaelus, a Smiths Interconnect business announced today that as a result of
best practice industry research, Frost & Sullivan has recognized Kaelus with
the 2012 Global Market Share Leadership Award in Passive Intermodulation Test
Equipment for capturing the highest market share within its industry.

Kaelus was the first company to market a Passive Intermodulation (PIM) tester
in 1996 under the brand of Summitek. Since then, the competitive landscape has
changed significantly. However, despite the entrance of new companies in the
market, some of which are large and benefit from significant brand recognition
in the Wireless Field Test Industry, Frost & Sullivan’s research affirms that
Kaelus has maintained a very significant leadership position in the PIM
Testing space.

Frost & Sullivan estimated the company’s revenues in the PIM Test Equipment
market to be over 5 times that of its closest competitor. This is due to a
multitude of factors including Kaelus’ large PIM test product portfolio
featuring products specifically developed to cater to the unique needs of key
end-users groups, its ability to innovate (enabled by an acute focus on PIM
testing), and its focus on understanding the users’ environment by providing
leading application and service support.

“Kaelus is honored to receive this recognition from Frost & Sullivan, and it
is exciting to see the attention on such a specific but critical product to
our industry,” said Jacqui McLaughlin, President of Kaelus. “Innovation is
what we are known for, and Kaelus will be launching our latest advancement in
portable PIM Testing technology at the MWC show in Barcelona this February.
Based on feedback from field testing, we are confident that this new product
will change the way we look at PIM testing in the future.”
