Qtel and NSN test new mobile TV technology

7 Oct 2008

Qatar Telecom (Qtel) and Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN) have agreed to deploy a mobile TV system based on DVB-H and OMA BCast Smart Card Profile (SCP) technology, which they claim will be the first commercially-ready implementation of its type. OMA BCast SCP is designed to integrate the management rights for DVB-H-delivered mobile TV broadcast content into their existing infrastructure. In addition, NSN is providing N96 mobile phones to test the first SCP-compliant software that enables subscribers to choose from among a host of payment models and interactivity options.
