North American DataCom Announces New Lease with State of Mississippi

IUKA, Mississippi (March 7, 2001). North American DataCom, Inc. (OTC BB: NADA) today announced finalization of a new 20-year lease with the State of Mississippi for its main facilities in Iuka, Mississippi. This lease provides NAD with 25,000 square feet of office and equipment space at the former National Aeronautics and Space Administration facility. The State, acting through the Mississippi Development Authority (MDA), has also granted NAD a 10-year right of first refusal to lease an additional 75,000 square feet at the Iuka facility, to accommodate NAD's expansive business plan.

NAD is an information technology company with a core emphasis in Fiber Optic and Wireless Technologies, Critical and Remote Enterprise Storage Services, Internet Access, Network Support and Information Technology Services. NAD plans to offer high-speed data access and remote critical data storage services from its Mississippi-based data center facilities throughout the Southeast.

"We are pleased to have completed this new lease with the State of Mississippi," said Robert R. Crawford, president of NAD, "and look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship with the MDA. We also hope to acquire a lease for the additional space available in the facility as soon as possible, so that we may have the room to expand as we add additional network segments according to our new Business Plan."

The state-of-the-art facility in Iuka, Mississippi was originally designed and constructed to house the computer engineering and programming center for the NASA advanced solid rocket motor project. The Company believes that this facility is uniquely designed to provide the physical environment necessary for a Tier IV data center with relatively small capital expenditure when compared to competitive facilities. Once completed, this data center will enable the Company to offer enterprise storage operations, Internet hosting, co-location, web-based data storage and general real-time data backup running 24-hours-a-day, 7-days-a-week. The facility is custom designed with raised floors, HVAC temperature control systems with separate cooling zones and full electric power redundancy. The Company intends to upgrade and expand its current 5,000 square foot raised floor data center in Iuka, Mississippi to a 65,000 square feet raised floor data center. The expansion is planned for completion late this year.

The Company's facility will contain a full range of security features. These include 24-hour-a-day secured access with security breach alarms, cipher lock systems and security guards on premises. The facility is housed in a government constructed building using full redundant primary power from two sources with multiple backup power generators. The facility currently has a 1,000 square foot, temperature controlled telecommunications room adjacent to a 4,000 square foot raised floor, temperature controlled computer room complete with security, UPS power backup and emergency diesel generator backup. The complex has a 50 mega-watt redundant power source provided by a TVA power station for current and additional power requirements that should meet all of the Company's power requirements.

NAD intends to provide hybrid Data Storage Services, Bandwidth, and Professional Services for high-speed Storage Area Network's and point-to-point Critical Data Storage. Services will exploit NAD's network infrastructure for data availability, data protection, scalability, and performance for the medical, financial, government, and corporate arenas. NAD is planning to offer host-independent mirroring of data between two physically separated systems using the Company's fiber optic network to ensure the continuous availability of enterprise data. NAD will use all key components of its infrastructure to offer unique E-Business solutions to its customers.
