Nokia Siemens Networks, together with Global Mediacom, will launch a commercial broadcast mobile TV service, based on DVB-H technology, in Indonesia in the first half of 2008, in what NSN says is its biggest DVB-H agreement so far. One of the drivers behind the deal is to enable users to watch in time the Olympic Games in Beijing via their mobile phones.
NS will manage the end-to-end systems and services, which will include consulting, implementation of the entire broadcasting solution and network, systems integration and the relevant business applications. Global Mediacom is also in discussions with Nokia for DVB-H integrated devices such as the Nokia N77, and work with NSN on joint marketing activities.
Global Mediacom is the largest and only integrated media, broadcasting, entertainment and telecoms group in Indonesia.
