DNS SatComm deploys Cambridge Broadband network in Bangladesh
Cambridge Broadband is a 3-time Tornado100 Winner, 2002-2004

Cambridge, UK, 7 April 2005: DNS SatComm, a large data communications company developing comprehensive communications infrastructure supported by Bangladesh government equity, has chosen Cambridge Broadband's VectaStar multi-service broadband wireless platform to make their broadband services available to a new, wider range of customers.

DNS is deploying a metropolitan area network in Dhaka, delivering communication services to banks, multinational corporations, manufacturing companies and educational institutions.

Mr Atiqul Ahsan, Chief Operations Officer of DNS SatComm said, 'We chose Cambridge Broadband because in our procurement evaluation, VectaStar was the best solution, delivering both IP and Clear-channel services from a single platform. The combination of high radio efficiency, superior capacity and non-line of sight (NLOS) capability, means that we needed just one third the number of base stations compared to other BWA brands. This makes the business of broadband more competitive for us.'

Deliveries have already commenced for the first phase of the VectaStar deployment. This will deliver carrier-class telecommunication services to the businesses and industries in the Dhaka Export Processing Zone. Further expansion - including WiMAX capability - will follow, with rollout to the rest of the country completed by the end of the year.

'We are very pleased to be working with DNS SatComm on this very ambitious project within Bangladesh', commented David Lim, VP Regional Sales, SEA, Cambridge Broadband. 'It is another confirmation of the VectaStar platform delivering the right combination of data throughput and range at a price that makes the business case highly viable.'
