Roaming Messenger Showcases Homeland Security Killer App at IAEM Show

11/18/2005 - Roaming Messenger (OTCBB: RMSG), the provider of a breakthrough mobile messaging platform, demonstrated its interoperability features from the show floor at the International Association of Emergency Management (IAEM) Annual Conference in Phoenix, Arizona.

Roaming Messenger was recently referred to as the "Killer App" for homeland security by nationally recognized strategist, David Stephenson, in his daily homeland security publication. Citing Roaming Messenger's smart messaging capability and interoperability across multiple devices and networks, Mr. Stephenson believes that Roaming Messenger's technology combines the necessary features and functions to make it the standard bearer for emergency communications in the post-Katrina world. Roaming Messenger possesses a unique ability to provide interoperable communication for federal, state and local emergency management systems over different networks and carriers, and across a variety of devices including desktop, laptop, cell phones and PDAs.

Michael Chertoff, Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, calls communication interoperability the biggest challenge in recent hurricane response efforts. Addressing this challenge, Roaming Messenger demonstrated a hurricane response scenario at the Interoperability Pavilion. The following summarizes the company's successful simulation:

Jon Lei, Roaming Messenger's CEO stated, "We are honored by the invitation to co-sponsor the Interoperability Pavilion with COMCARE and are excited to demonstrate our technology at such a high profiled event. It's taken us a long time to be recognized by the industry. Now, I believe that we have finally arrived!"

Mr. Lei commented further, "The world we live in has become increasingly more dangerous and we must use new and better technology to overcome and respond to these new threats. It's unfortunate that it took major disasters to put information technology investment on the front burner for governments and corporations worldwide. The return-on-investment in technology that saves lives and preserves assets is priceless. We are glad to be playing a major part in the value chain - that part is interoperable mobile communication!"
