A businessman with interests in both the United States and Afghanistan, Dr. Ehsanollah Bayat divides his time between his roles as the founder and head of the Afghan Wireless Communications Company (AWCC) and CEO and president of Telephone Systems International, Inc. Based in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, Telephone Systems International collaborated with Afghanistan’s Ministry of Communications to form AWCC in 2002. Since then, Dr. Ehsanollah Bayat and the AWCC have expanded operations to serve the wireless needs of more than 4 million subscribers. A leading provider of wireless and broadband communication services, the AWCC is among the largest employers in Afghanistan, as well.

Five years after the founding of the AWCC, Dr. Ehsanollah Bayat established the Ariana Radio and Television Network (ATN), a move that has allowed the Afghan people to make great strides toward having a voice with which to engage the world. With the goal of providing a “window for a better tomorrow,” ATN broadcasts quality programming in Pashtu, Dari, and English to more than 20 million customers in Afghanistan in addition to numerous satellite subscribers in Asia, Australia, Europe, and North America. The network recently expanded its offerings to include live football matches from the English Premier League, which will be broadcast to listeners on its main channel and the new Ariana Television News Network (ATNN) channel as well as Radio Ariana 93.5. As the founder of ATN, Dr. Ehsanollah Bayat has made education a particular focus of the network, enabling its viewers to learn about a wide range of topics, including computer science, business, and health.
