Alaska Communications Systems Group CEO Discusses Q3 2010 Results - Earnings Call Transcript

Anand is going to start by putting some meat on the bones of how our operations are growing the data business in differentiated ways. Anand?

Anand Vadapalli

Thank you Liane. Picking up from Liane's comments, I'm satisfied with how we are generating new opportunities to keep our funnel strong, and how we are winning deals where we go in with a differentiated solution set that delivers high value to customers and to us, that generates sticky relationships, and that makes us more immune from commodity pricing.

I'll now share some of the customer stories we reported in press releases this week. One: For Sitnasuak Native Corporation, an Alaska village corporation with business in Alaska, the lower 48, and Puerto Rico, ACS provides data and application hosting out of our facilities in Hillsborough, Oregon. We host their Microsoft applications, providing full data backup and business capabilities. This is an example of how we follow our customers outside Alaska, and how we sell connectivity and hosting.

Two: For the Alaska Rural Telehealth Network, we provide fully integrated connectivity, network management, and videoconferencing. This network and organization is designed to serve medical providers that address more than 50% of Alaska's rural population. With our solution, we enable doctors and nurses to focus on patient care and not worry about technology. This is an example of our expanded portfolio including the all-important videoconferencing capability for remote healthcare applications in Alaska.

Three: For Rivada Sea Lion, we are doing the engineering and design for their 4G rural wireless network. They received federal stimulus funding to bring much-needed broadband services to southwest Alaska. We are pleased to be chosen to help them. Through this project we may in fact be associated with the 4G wireless network operational as early as summer 2011. Our reputation as quality builders and operators of networks in rugged conditions distinguished us as the right player for them.
