BARCELONA, Spain -- SK Telecom and Nokia Siemens Networks are working together to evaluate Nokia Siemens Networks’ newly launched Liquid Applications in the operator’s LTE network. Following a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed by the two companies in August 2012, they will sign an agreement on February 27, 2013 during the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2013, to cooperate in the testing of Liquid Applications. As part of this collaboration, SK Telecom will evaluate Nokia Siemens Networks’ newly launched Radio Applications Cloud Server (RACS), which enables Liquid Applications, in the first half of 2013. Liquid Applications is an innovative network technology that helps operators provide a truly unique and personalized mobile broadband experience. This is achieved by turning base stations into a local hub for new service creation and delivery that exists closer to the mobile subscriber. SK Telecom will be the world’s first operator to test Liquid Applications in an LTE environment. The operator is focusing on realizing Service-Aware RAN (radio access network) as part of its evolution toward an upgraded network. Unlike traditional base stations that essentially only played the role of a communication pipe, Service-Aware RAN is an intelligent base station that provides customers with a unique mobile experience through a wide variety of customized services. Based on the diverse features of intelligent base stations such as localized processing, storage and access to real-time radio and network data, the operator expects to develop services and applications that deliver a contextualized and personalized experience to customers. Service-Aware RAN will be showcased at SK Telecom’s booth at Mobile World Congress 2013, Fira Gran Via, in Barcelona, Spain. SK Telecom

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.
