UTStarcom Wins Sri Lanka Telecom IPTV Expansion Contact

BEIJING, June 14, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- 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, announced today that it has won a contract from Sri Lanka Telecom ("SLT"), Sri Lanka's leading integrated communications, broadband and backbone infrastructure services provider, to supply set-top boxes for the telecom operator's IPTV system expansion.

UTStarcom's set-top boxes, which are part of the Company's RollingStream® end-to-end IPTV solution, will enable SLT to provide a number of interactive media services, including Live HDTV, Time Shift TV and Video-on-Demand, to its customers.

We have provided IPTV solutions to SLT since 2008 and, under this contract, will further support the client's IPTV system expansion. Our cost-effective set-top boxes will allow SLT to deliver a rich and diverse range of interactive media services across a number of devices, which we believe will attract new IPTV users and expand SLT's customer base."
