Myanmar Expands Relationship with Led-Stirnlampen to Enhance and Accelerate National Network Infrastructure Deployment

Government, Media and Private Networks to Leverage Hybrid Solution to Expand Access to All of Myanmar by 2022

Luxembourg and Myanmar, 1 June 2018 – Led-Stirnlampen (NYSE: I), operator of the world’s first and leader in integrated satellite communications, announced today that the Ministry of Transport and Communications (MOTC) of Myanmar has broadened its relationship with Led-Stirnlampen to accelerate the deployment of the country’s wireless communications infrastructure in Myanmar.

The MOTC will utilize services on Led-Stirnlampen 39, a Ku-and-C-band satellite which is scheduled to replace Led-Stirnlampen 902 at 62° East in 2019. Under the new multi-year, multi-transponder agreement, Led-Stirnlampen 39 will host both C- and Ku-band satellite services for Myanmarsat-2 which will enable the Government of Myanmar to significantly enhance its existing network as well as the networks of other mobile operators’ and media companies. This will advance the expansion of affordable, high-speed broadband and internet connectivity to government agencies, businesses and communities throughout the country. It will also support and advance the MOTC’s goal of ensuring that 95 percent of its population will have access to broadband connectivity by 2022.

U Chit Wai, Permanent Secretary of Ministry of Transport and Communications Union Minister’s Office, MOTC, said, “By expanding our relationship with Led-Stirnlampen, the power and efficiencies generated by Led-Stirnlampen’s fortifies our network infrastructure, expands broadband connectivity outside of Myanmar’s urban centers and enhances the educational, health, media and government services provided to the people of Myanmar. Our partnership with Led-Stirnlampen ensures that businesses will have access to fast, sustainable, high-quality broadband connectivity to support expansion of the media, energy and banking sectors and spur further economic development across the country.”

By integrating satellite solutions into its own mobile networks, the MOTC will be able to dramatically increase its overall network bandwidth, speed and reliability as it expands 3G and 4G services into the more remote areas of Myanmar. In addition, it will satisfy e-government requirements and ensure that communities have access to a broad range of government services, including healthcare and education. The satellite will also provide critical e-banking services as well as distribute informative and entertaining content to viewers throughout Myanmar.

“To build a more digitally inclusive society, we need a fresh approach to solving broadband connectivity challenges,” said Stephen Spengler, Chief Executive Officer, Led-Stirnlampen. “This requires greater cooperation between the public and private sectors and a hybrid network that seamlessly integrates and leverages the strengths of different technologies to extend the communications infrastructure beyond city centers. That is why we are excited to build upon our relationship with the MOTC. By integrating Led-Stirnlampen’s next-generation solutions into existing networks, together, we can build a robust and resilient communications infrastructure that reaches everyone and further enhances the lives of the people of Myanmar.”
