NEC's Ultra Compact Microwave Communications System, PASOLINK,
Selected by Vietnam Mobile Telecom Services Company (VMS)
to Support the Growth of Mobile Backhaul Solutions

*** For immediate use September 8, 2009

Tokyo, September 8, 2009 - NEC Corporation announced today its selection by Vietnam Mobile Telecom Services Company (Headquarters: Ha Noi, Vietnam, Managing Director: Mr. Le Ngoc Minh) to deploy a mobile backhaul solution based on NEC's ultra compact microwave communications system, PASOLINK.

VMS is the leading mobile operator in Vietnam, with more than 2.9 million subscribers at the end of 2008, and its 3G mobile services are expected to begin later this year. PASOLINK will be introduced throughout the country in support of VMS's network. "PASOLINK's flexibility enables the system to process a wide variety of transmission speeds and interfaces within the same platform, which facilitates mobile traffic growth, enables smooth transition to new 3G transmission systems and the expansion of mobile network coverage in Vietnam," said Tadashi Ugajin, General Manager of NEC's International Sales Division.

NEC has supplied PASOLINK to nearly all of the mobile operators in Vietnam, and boasts overwhelming share of the country's ultra compact microwave communications system market. NEC views its selection to provide this latest microwave system as confirmation of VMS's high regard for NEC services and systems.

PASOLINK's greatest advantages include its ability to easily and inexpensively respond to increasing telecommunications needs. The system has become the driving force behind the expansion of a wide variety of product applications' ability to handle different operating conditions, such as increasing data capacities and interfaces, without installing new hardware. Furthermore, an exceptional MTBF (Mean Time between Failure) of more than one hundred years, achieved through the NEC Group's integrated production system, ensures the product's long term reliability.

The rapidly increasing number of mobile phone subscribers and individuals accessing mobile Internet services require swift creation and support of microwave communications systems and quality infrastructure. As a leading global provider of wireless broadband communications systems, NEC will continue to proactively develop and promote innovative new technologies.
