WorldGSM™ for Myanmar: Connecting the New Highway 15 Apr, 2014

The gleaming Yangon - Naypyidaw-Mandalay highway is a powerful symbol of Myanmar’s new dynamism and economic transformation. The challenge before state operator Myanma Post and Telecommunications (MPT) was to provide seamless mobile coverage on the highway that passes through some of the remotest parts of the country. VNL provided a seamless GSM network along almost 480 kms of the highway using the solar-powered WorldGSM™ solution.

VNL Participates at Mobile World Congress 2012 23 Feb, 2012

A simple switch to WorldGSM™ got an African mobile operator an average saving of $24,000 per site in a year.

VNL announces its participation again at GSMA’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, February 27th – March 1st, 2012.

Rajiv Mehrotra Chairman and CEO will be speaking on a panel entitled “Networks : Infrastructure Costs in the Age of Austerity”.

In today’s environment of austerity, operators are rethinking business models, searching out new solutions and revisiting old ones to deliver lower-cost networks. This session highlights some of the most outstanding examples of ingenuity and shows how operators around the world can employ similar measures.

Location: Hall 5 - Room 6

VNL will be showcasing the dramatic OPEX savings achieved by WorldGSM™ sites deployed in Africa and the powerful payback proposition on CAPEX invested in these sites. For years we have heard that renewables take too long for payback. VNL’s WorldGSM™ solution is changing this perception across the world – captured in its current campaign -‘Green is Good for Business’.

In Africa, WorldGSM™ sites have saved upto $24,000 a year per site in diesel expenses alone.This will be of special interest to mobile operators and tower companies alike, as they search for ways to reduce high OPEX on account of huge diesel expenses to power their rural and remote sites in the absence of reliable grid power.

VNL’s solar powered WorldGSM™ Village Base Station (VBTS) will be on display at the stand.

VNL makes the award-winning WorldGSM™ solution - the sustainable GSM & Broadband network infrastructure solution specifically made for areas with ARPUs of less than $2. WorldGSM™ is the first commercially viable GSM & Broadband solution that is independent of the power grid. It requires no grid power or diesel generator backup. It is also designed for simple delivery and deployment by local, untrained workers – all resulting in zero OPEX, dramatically lower CAPEX, and near zero maintenance.

San Francisco Chronicle: “The Next Billion Cell Phone Users” 18 Aug, 2009

Sometimes there are technologies that just make sense.

by Yobie Benjamin

If you’ve ever traveled the world, you’ll eventually discover that the US mobile phone market and technologies are always about 2 - 4 years behind Japan, Korea, the Nordics and even the Philippines and India. The US with its advanced telecommunication infrastructure is hobbled by its own enormous capital expenditure investments in hardwired systems. Mobile infrastructures in emerging countries have no need to string copper and fiber optics along great distances to deliver widely available communications services. But it is still a struggle to reach billions of people.
