Date:8/16/2011

LOUISVILLE, Ky., Aug. 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Beacon Enterprise Solutions Group, Inc. (OTC BB: BEAC) (www.askbeacon.com), an emerging global leader in the design, implementation and management of high performance Information Technology Systems (ITS) infrastructure solutions, today announces the award from teaming partner ICS Nett, Inc.

Under the agreement, Beacon will provide to the VA management, installation and billing services for delivering a Real-Time Locating System (RTLS) wireless solution.  The joint Beacon/ICS teams will provide application software, receivers, ID tags, installation, and ancillary equipment for wireless tracking of equipment, supplies, implants, and surgical instruments.  This technology package will provide selected VA Medical Centers with real-time capability to actively track all assets, including medical supplies, staff, and patients in order to increase clinical efficiencies, staff productivity, and maximize equipment utilization.

"We have believed for some time that solid benefits could be leveraged from using a well-designed and integrated wireless platform," said Bruce Widener, Beacon Chairman and CEO.  "Winning a wireless project of this scope is actually a little ahead of our projections, as we had anticipated it during fiscal year 2012.  We see the far-reaching benefits of this RTLS wireless project potentially extending beyond the government sector into our Fortune 1000 clients, especially into our Pharmaceutical vertical.  This is the first large medical award in Beacon's Healthcare vertical announced at the beginning of this fiscal year."

"We do not believe this to be an isolated project," said ICS Chief Strategy Officer Khurram Shah. "The need for wireless RTLS services in the public and private sectors is emerging and we believe will shape the way a wide variety of assets will be managed in the future.  The successful execution of a project of this scope that spans several million feet of healthcare footprint will require the kind of professional services and execution that we saw in Beacon when we signed the teaming agreement."
