5 How did we select our Partner?
Current activity in BSNL and success rate in BSNL tenders Presence in Delhi Ability to execute complicated projects Financially stable company Agreed MOU to be signed before tender, includes: Financials terms Responsibilities of each Party during the tender process, project implementation, support during the project life cycle Final contract will be based on MOU agreed terms

6 Tendering Process (1) Alvarion lost earlier BSNL WiMAX tender due to Indoor BST price (2008 tender) Discussion with BSNL to modify the spec so it can suit our Outdoor BST Tender release, vendors meeting and tender clarifications, submission ( ) Tender technical evaluation by BSNL ( technical compliance) Bid price opening and bid price evaluation

7 Tendering Process (2) Bid price results:
Aster, India & Runcom – Israel rejected due to no Wave-2 certificate In order to get the PO from BSNL , the price of L2,3,4 should be reduced to L1 price S.No. FRONT BIDDER TECHNOLOGY - BTS TECHNOLOGY - CPE TOTAL BID VALUE Project portion 1 Gemini, India Point Red Telecom, India Point Red USD204,789,503 40% BST 2 ZTE, China ZTE USD222,061,389 25% BST 3 ICOMM, India Telsima, USA Icomm USD227,975,862 20% BST 4 VMC, India Alvarion Ltd., Israel Gemtek USD229,519,810 15% BST 5 Spanco, India Samsung, Korea Modacom, Informats USD249,935,498 6 TCIL, India Motorola, USA Motorola USD312,552,207 7 Huawei, China Huawei USD344,785,058

8 Tender Award LOI was issued by BSNL on late In order to get the PO, bidder should open the PBG. Gemini- got the LOI ZTE – got the LOI ICOMM – got the LOI VMC – no LOI was issued Some legal issues related to custom declaration in other projects were raised against VMC. This put our project on hold . BSNL can’t issue the LOI as long as there is an open investigation. L5 (Spanco) did its outmost to get the LOI instead of VMC. Issue was resolved at 2010 year end and LOI was issued to VMC.

14 Next Plans Possibly more orders as Gemini did not supply all quantity
Spectrum issues TD LTE Good bond with VMC Further business with VMC. Wi-Fi projects, Video Surveillance projects VMC can be a good partner for DAS.

15 Lessons Learned Know the customer, their roll, requirements, people
Know your Partner Do not rely only on your Partner- have direct channels to the customer Conflict of interest with the Partner (bid control) Define responsibilities properly. Commit to what we can deliver (contract) Do not leave the Partner by himself – do more than what is committed As a supplier of major project components, make sure that the project is successful
