Telvent implements its TETRA system in the Picasso Tower

June 9, 2008

Madrid, June 9, 2008. – Telvent (NASDAQ: TLVT), the IT company for a sustainable and secure world, announced today the completion of the implementation of the digital technology-based radio communications system in the Picasso Tower office building in Madrid, Spain, having fulfilled the objective of equipping this emblematic building with the latest techniques in voice and data communications networks in order to enhance the operational security measures of this infrastructure.

Project development involved replacing the existing analog system with a new and robust digital platform. Telvent’s TETRA (Terrestrial Trunked Radio) system, which complies with the standard published by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI), or digital mobile radio system, will deliver greater privacy and confidentiality in communications, preventing conversation interference from ham radio equipment. The system covers the entire building: its 44 floors, five basements, and the heliport located on the 45th floor, including facades and infrastructure service and access areas.

This system, coupled with the supervision and control platform -Telvent’s OASyS DNA- for the different systems associated with building use, will make the Picasso Tower a worldwide point of reference in the security sector.

In the words of Larry Stack, president of Telvent’s Energy division: “Having contributed to making the Picasso Tower one of the first emblematic buildings in the world to adopt this technology is very significant for us.” And in concluding, he added: “Thanks to this system, the Picasso Tower has managed to adapt its operational processes to those utilized by public emergency and security services, thus enabling their interoperability and coordination."

Telvent has executed similar projects in other emblematic buildings, such as Madrid’s Puerta de Europa or the Council of the European Union building in Brussels. Telvent is thereby committed to technological solution development and service for enhancing global security and responding to the challenges facing today's society.
