19 Jan 2010

MobileOne (M1) of Singapore is laying the groundwork for a smooth transition to Long Term Evolution (LTE) technology and plans to commence an LTE trial next month. The pilot tests will be carried out in partnership with Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN) and will last two months, it said. Commenting on the field trials, Patrick Scodeller, Chief Technical Officer at M1, said: ‘Our network modernisation contract with Nokia Siemens Networks represented our first steps in our evolution to LTE. The trial will help pave the way for faster and better quality mobile broadband services in the future. The extensive use of Nokia Siemens Network’s proven energy efficient equipment will ensure that we have in place a network that is well able to meet the increasingly demanding environmental standards now and in the future.’
