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

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
