An innovative Internet and telecommunications company in Vietnam, Dot VN, Inc. has announced that it has completed its review and analysis of a report documenting the results of the recent field test of E-Band virtual fiber or wireless technology conducted by KASATI Telecom. The large-scale trial was carried out to test the performance and functionality of E-Band's E-Link 1000EXR virtual fiber wireless solution in order to determine the product's suitability for the Vietnam's Mekong Delta region. E-Band virtual fiber or wireless technology met all of the testing criteria requirements in the rigorous 60-day field test as per the KASATI report.
The test took place in the Tien Giang Province of the Mekong Delta region is a relatively rural area of Vietnam, where building telecom infrastructure is expensive due to its terrain. The capabilities of the virtual fiber to operate over a distance of approximately 2.03 km or 1.26 miles were assessed during the extensive 60-day trial, done in collaboration between Dot VN, KASATI and Tien Giang Telecommunications. The virtual fibre was also tested for its ability to handle various advanced telecommunication applications such as ADSL internet service and IPTV (News - Alert) streaming video broadcasts in a practical, real world setting. Live services to Tien Giang Telecommunications' customers were provided by the E-Link 1000EXR during the course of the 60-day test. The expectations of the customers were met.
Thomas Johnson, CEO, Dot VN said a very significant milestone is achieved by the report issued by KASATI detailing E-Band's successful performance in the field test carried out in the Tien Giang Province. E-Band's commercial viability and its potential to address the current capacity constraints on Vietnam's network infrastructure are demonstrated by the virtual fiber solution's efficacy in the field test coupled with its superior bandwidth and significantly lower cost relative to competing technologies.
Johnson added E-Link's numerous applications have the potential to revolutionize Vietnam's telecommunications infrastructure by providing a cost effective yet best of breed, easily deployable solution. These applications will gain wide acceptance throughout the country. Johnson concluded the company's relationship with KASATI have strengthened due to the promising findings, with KASATI asking Dot VN to extend the trials to test the wireless technology's other diverse applications.
