BSNL deploying 1.3 million lines of iAN-8000 Multiservice Access Node solution in support of new high-speed, entertainment and communications services

NEW DELHI, India, Dec. 19 -- UTStarcom, Inc. (NASDAQ:UTSI), a global leader in IP-based, end-to-end networking solutions and services, today announced that Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd. (BSNL) has successfully launched its multiplay broadband Internet services in India. In March, UTStarcom was awarded a contract from BSNL for the deployment of 1.3 million lines of UTStarcom's industry-leading iAN-8000 multiservice access node (MSAN) solution in approximately 900 cities throughout India. This contract firmly established UTStarcom as the largest broadband equipment supplier in India.

UTStarcom has been the turnkey provider for this deployment, with full responsibility for the network design and planning, deployment, and service roll out and maintenance of the network. UTStarcom's ADSL 2+-based broadband solutions will now enable BSNL to offer new broadband-based, triple-play services such as video-on-demand (VoD), video multicast, VPN services, and high-speed Internet services across the country while providing the operator with network flexibility, scalability for innovation and a rapid return on investment.

"BSNL's deployment of UTStarcom's innovative broadband solutions will revolutionize the broadband framework in India, and we are honored to be partnering with India's leading telecom service provider to bring these innovations into the country," said Vijay Yadav, managing director of UTStarcom's South Asia operations. "Our iAN-8000 technology, coupled with our expertise in the management of turnkey projects, will now enable BSNL to offer a compelling array of services that, in the past were not possible, given bandwidth and access constraints in the country."

BSNL can now focus on offering other value added services -- such as IPTV, VoD, VoIP, VPN service, multicasting over VPN and others -- to its customers over the existing broadband network.

"India's fast growing telecom environment continues to be a promising market for UTStarcom to offer its products and solutions," said David King, senior vice president of international sales and marketing at UTStarcom. "As in the past, we believe operators will continue to realize the value of deploying our IP-based solutions to expand and optimize their broadband networks in this region."

UTStarcom has also deployed its NetRing(TM) 10000 optical transport solution in support of this service for the aggregation of DSL traffic in BSNL's network. UTStarcom's NetRing product suite provides service providers with a high level of network resilience and carrier-grade quality of service towards subscribers to ensure trouble-free offering of real-time mission critical data and video applications.
