Mobile operator TeliaSonera Sweden is to provide Nokia with a DVB-H trial system to be used in conjunction with the ‘Nokia Mobile Broadcast System 3.0’ platform and Nokia ‘N92’ mobile TV devices.
The system is currently being installed at the Nokia facility in Kista, Stockholm, supported by Nokia’s consulting and integration services. The system will be hosted and managed by the Nokia team.
DVB-H technology works with existing operator networks, providing consumers with terrestrial digital broadcasts along with voice telephony and internet access in a single device.
Up to 50 TV channels can be delivered over one network. With extensive pilots of broadcast mobile TV currently taking place across the globe, involving broadcasters, mobile operators, broadcast network operators and handset manufacturers, the market for commercial broadcast services is expected to spread during 2006.
