    TEL AVIV, Israel, Jan. 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- RiT Technologies
 (Nasdaq:   RITT), the pioneer and world-leading provider of intelligent physical
 layer solutions, today announced that one of the world's largest diversified
 financial services companies, has chosen RiT's Intelligent Physical Layer
 Management Solution (IPLMS) to help it maximize the performance and reduce the
 cost-of-ownership of its mission-critical networks. The investment bank has
 more than 70 offices worldwide, including major centers in the U.S., U.K. and
     (Logo: http://www.newscom.com/cgi-bin/prnh/20040727/LNTU008LOGO-a )
     For its first IPLMS deployment, the bank has recently awarded Panduit
 Corp., one of RiT's strategic OEM partners, with a contract to install 35,000
 managed ports in its new London headquarters. For the management function,
 Panduit will use RiT's PatchView(TM) IPLMS sold under the Panduit PanView(TM)
 brand name.
     "Physical layer management is a necessity for businesses like ours -
 businesses with complex, mission-critical networks and no tolerance for
 downtime," said the bank's VP of Infrastructure. "We chose the RiT/Panduit for
 a number of reasons: the technological superiority of the product, including
 its remote management capability and the fact that it requires no pre-
 deployment integration; the existence of an enormous and satisfied
 PatchView(TM) installed base; and, last, but not least, Panduit's impressive
 track-record with large-scale projects. Our evaluation shows that the system
 will pay for itself quickly by reducing network downtime and maintenance
 expenses, and by improving our ability to track and control network assets. In
 addition, we believe the system will significantly enhance the physical
 security of the cabling infrastructure."
     "The combination of RiT's state-of-the-art IPLMS technology with our end-
 to-end infrastructure products, solutions, marketing reach and experience
 provides the confidence necessary to earn the customer's preference.  We are
 proud that our joint solution was chosen by one of the world's most
 prestigious banks, and look forward to carrying out this vast project," said
 Andrew Caveney, VP Global Business Development for Panduit.
     Liam Galin, RiT's President and CEO, added, "The fact that this blue-chip
 customer is moving to managed physical layer connectivity in its mission-
 critical networks shows the increasing mainstream acceptance of the IPLMS
 concept. Further, its standardization on our technology is a gratifying
 validation of our products, track record, support capability and partners. We
 are working to leverage all these positives into increased Enterprise sales in
 the years ahead."
