UTStarcom Wins EPON Contract To Support Smart Grid In Ningxia Province

BEIJING, Sept. 22, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- UTStarcom Holdings Corp. ("UTStarcom" or "the Company") (NASDAQ: UTSI) a leading provider of interactive, IP-based network solutions in iDTV, IPTV, Internet TV and broadband for cable and telecom operators, today announced that it has won an Ethernet Passive Optical Network ("EPON") contract to strengthen Ningxia Electric Power Company's ("Ningxia Electric") integrated electric distribution system and communication platform.

Since 2010, Ningxia Electric has accelerated the construction of its integrated electric distribution system and communication platform as the Chinese government spurs the development of smart grid networks across the country. By 2012, Ningxia Electric expects the integrated electric distribution system and communication platform to be operational in five cities within Ningxia province.

"Our EPON solution enhances Ningxia Electric's distribution system and communication platform, integrating more functionality at a low cost of entry," said UTStarcom Chief Executive Officer Jack Lu. "We are encouraged by the new contract and are confident we will be able to capitalize on similar opportunities in the future as China's government continues to promote the digitalization and automation of the state grid network."

UTStarcom's EPON solution helps electric companies build high-quality and reliable communication channels. In addition, it collects data and provides optical fiber to end users to meet the various business needs of customers. The Company plans on booking this equipment-based sale in the third quarter of 2011.
