Financing Solutions that Fit
Ottawa, Nov 7, 2005– BTI Photonic Systems, a leading global supplier of metro edge systems for the build-out of new broadband services, today announced that its Netstender™ platform has been deployed by the EGAT Public Company Limited as it builds out its network for competitive services delivery.  For this project, BTI Photonic Systems partnered with TTI (Thai Transmission Industry Co.,Ltd.) a provider of network implementation skills and technology support,  to form a competitive team for Thailand’s telecom service providers.

“With deregulation in Thailand, EGAT Plc. is building a world class network for delivery of services throughout the country,” said Wanchai Ganyamas, Assistant Governor-Transmission System Maintenance of EGAT Plc.  “We teamed with TTI, who brings the network skills and world class support enabling us to provide competitive choice for telecom services in Thailand.  The combination of TTI’s world-class network and technology support team with BTI’s Netstender network extension capabilities allows us to competitively provide effective reach in our network between the major cities throughout Thailand.” 

“As a leading telecommunications systems integrator in Thailand providing solutions to carriers, we selected BTI’s Netstender to provide us with leading, network expanding technologies with usability that outstrips the competition,” said Dr. Paisan Etitum, Executive Director of TTI.  “Working with BTI is allowing us to provide compelling economics and network growth capabilities for EGAT”.

The partnership of BTI and TTI allows EGAT to build out their network while reducing the complexity of optical networking. With Netstender, EGAT can economically scale its network reach, extending across Thailand a wealth of new competitive telecommunications services already available in the central core. 

TTI will be using BTI’s Netstender 2060 and Netstender 1030 for the EGAT build-out of major sites including Bangkok, Phitsanulok, Chiangmai, Suratthani, Hat Yai, plus others.  In concert with a Marconi SDH solution, BTI is providing EGAT with a complete network backbone for delivery of competitive services.
