The Chinese telecomm industry leader, Telestone Technologies Corporation (Nasdaq: TSTC) , announced Tuesday that it’s Wireless Fiber Distribution System (WFDS™) passed all testing procedures of the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC), including all of the existing 2G and 3G systems in the U.S. The announcement Tuesday boosted share prices 31.4 percent to a high of $11.15 from Monday’s closing price of $8.48.
The company’s proprietary Wireless Fiber Distribution System, which provides for indoor multi-services access networks, had a successful debut at the April 2009 CTIA trade show in Las Vegas. Following the trade show, the company immediately began working towards FCC compliance. To achieve this, Telestone developed a team comprised of corporate-level officers, R&D and marketing personnel, as well a partner in the United States.
Last month, the WFDS technology passed all FCC required testing procedures and Telestone was given the green light to market the product in the United States, as well as Canada, and Central and South America. The FCC certification is a substantial achievement for Telestone’s efforts to gain market share in North and South America.
Mr. Daqing Han, Chairman and CEO of Telestone, commented, “The certification of Telestone’s WFDS(TM) technology by the FCC has removed the final hurdle for us to effectively launch our marketing initiatives throughout the Americas. In the coming months, we expect to secure new contracts in the U.S. from telecommunication carriers and through our local partners while expanding our reach to countries in Latin America. Diversifying our revenue base as we move into 2010 is an important goal and we expect positive margin enhancements through increased WFDS(TM) sales.”
Industry analysts believe Telestone Technologies is poised for substantial growth in the coming years. The Chinese government has announced it will spend $70 billion over the next three years on 3G initiatives, this, coupled with Telestone’s impressive goals to increase the company’s domestic market share from 5 percent to 33 percent suggests the company plans to capture a sizable share of the government funds allocated for wireless development.
