Nokia's New Commercial DVB-H Pilot in Sweden

Nokia has unveiled a commercial DVB-H pilot in Stockholm with Teracom in Sweden. Nokia is supplying the Nokia Mobile Broadcast System 3.0 and Nokia N92 mobile TV devices to the pilot. The pilot will last from October to December 2006 and includes 400 consumers already. This project is a co-operation between ATG, Boxer, Nokia, Sveriges Radio, Sveriges Television/UR, Telenor and Teracom. The pilot participants will be able to watch 14 TV-channels and listen to 4 radio channels in the Stockholm region, where a network was built for high quality indoor and outdoor coverage. The objective is to evaluate what Swedish consumers think about commercial broadcast mobile TV.

Boxer, ATG, Sveriges Television and Sveriges Radio are to provide content for the pilot. The test will be delivered using Nokia Mobile Broadcast Solution 3.0, and the pilot participants will use mobile devices from Nokia, the Nokia N92. Teracom will be responsible for the network, the broadcast and operating of the platform.

This is the 2nd mobile TV pilot in Sweden where Nokia is one of the main suppliers of DVB-H technology. Nokia has also announced a new contract with TeliaSonera Sweden for a complete DVB-H pilot system, including Nokia Mobile Broadcast System 3.0 and Nokia N92 mobile TV devices, underpinned by Nokia's hosting and systems integration know-how.
