Dot VN has finished reviewing and analyzing the results of a 30-day field test involving the E-Link 1000 millimeter wave communication systems from E-Band Communications. The test was conducted in Hanoi, Vietnam during June and July — monsoon season.
Dot VN said E-Link can serve as an integral component in the continued development and evolution of the data and telecom infrastructures in Vietnam. Initial results are promising but additional testing is required in both urban and rural environments. The company expects E-Link will considerably reduce the problem of increasing bandwidth demand from an estimated 20 million Internet users in Vietnam. This will be achieved by providing a cost-effective and reliable means of providing GigE connectivity.
According to the report, E-Link is well-suited for creating Gigabit Ethernet connectivity over a distance of several kilometers. Considering the results of the initial tests, Dot VN is hopeful about possible applications for the E-Link in Vietnam. This includes metropolitan wireless fiber rings; backhaul of 4G, WiMax, WiFi (News - Alert) and mobile networks; IP Television and VOIP services; and video conferencing and surveillance. The company expects several such demonstrations to be conducted in the near future.
Dot VN is an Internet and Telecommunications Company and the exclusive online global domain name registrar for the Country of Vietnam. The partners of the company who worked on this report include E-Band Communications Corporation, Vietnam Data Communications (News - Alert) Corporation and the Vietnam Internet Network Information Center.
“The positive results from the extensive field tests of the E-Link 1000 systems in Hanoi is very exciting news for Dot VN and its technology partners who participated in this trial,” said Thomas Johnson, Dot VN’s CEO and Chairman, in a statement. “Working closely with VDC, VNNIC and E-Band, the Company was able to secure a test license from the Ministry of Information and Communications ("MIC") to test and import the advanced radio equipment into Vietnam within a relatively short period of time.”
Johnson continued: “We plan to continue to aggressively demonstrate this exciting new technology in other major cities, such as Ho Chi Minh City, Danang and Can Tho as well as in rural applications. We expect the E-Link to be a core component of Vietnam's technology infrastructure.”
