What do you get when you combine a cool new technology and a hot thriving market? An exciting combo, and a very successful launch of 4G in Brazil, which was the first 4G launch in the country and all of Latin America.
Telecommunications penetration is growing at an unprecedented rate in Brazil, so there is a lot of demand for high-speed mobile broadband. Brazil is therefore an ideal launching ground for a large-scale 4G network. And this is exactly what SKY, Brazil’s largest satellite TV operator, did. SKY Brazil has initially launched 4G-based wireless broadband services for customers in the city of Brasília, and plans to roll out services to new customers in many additional cities of Brazil, as well as other countries in Latin America, in the future.
At Nokia Siemens Networks, we are the sole vendor for the launch, providing a complete TD-LTE network that includes end-to-end products and services. Based on the zero footprint Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station and a high-capacity Evolved Packet Core, our TD-LTE solution offers significant TCO savings by reducing the total number of sites as well as very low power consumption and unmatched site configurations in both urban and rural environments. Nokia Siemens Networks’ Liquid Net-based TD-LTE also has a simple and clear migration path to future technology including LTE-Advanced and heterogeneous networks.
See for yourself the exciting results from combining SKY’s opportunities in the Latin American market with our top-notch D-LTE technology:
