HONG KONG -- InvestNet Inc. (OTCBB: IVNE)(BERLIN: IWM, WKN 801479)("InvestNet") today announced the execution of a memorandum of understanding with Dragon Telecom Co. Ltd. ("Dragon"), whereby Dragon has agreed to allow InvestNet to install and customize its Advance Switch software engine to provide telecommunication integration services in Tianjin, China.

Advance Switch is a software engine designed to handle broadband telecommunications.
