BEIJING, China -- For the first time in the world, TD-LTE* (time division duplex long term evolution) technology has successfully been used for a live TV broadcast. On January 5, China Mobile’s TD-LTE network transmitted a live video stream of the Xiamen International Marathon** to TV centers of China Central TV and Xiamen TV for live broadcasting. The TD-LTE network, solely built by Nokia Siemens Networks, exceeded required parameters to transmit high-definition (HD) video and images from cameras on the move, providing the best live TV experience, matching a relay via satellite. This technological feat ushers in a new era for future outside TV broadcasting using LTE. As sole supplier of the Xiamen network, Nokia Siemens Networks’ high-quality TD-LTE network supported the entire event with a zero bit error rate. In spite of the increased demand for network capacity with exceptional traffic and load conditions, there was no degradation in network performance, no packet loss and no delay during the two and a half hour live transmission of the mega event on the move. A stable uplink throughput of 5 Mbps (megabit per second) ensured perfect video quality for the smooth TV viewing of millions of viewers worldwide. “This world-first is yet another proof point for us as a leader in driving the TD-LTE innovation, globalization and commercialization,” said Markus Borchert, president of Nokia Siemens Networks Greater China Region. “With our advanced TD-LTE technology, we ensured optimal network performance with ultra high-quality and reliability for China Mobile to support such a mega international event with very high data traffic.” Nokia Siemens Networks

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
