Nokia Networks is all set to supply advanced wireless networking technology to Shanghai Oriental Peral Group. SOPG is a diversified broadcasting, media, manufacturing and real estate company.
Under the contract, Nokia Networks will deploy LTE in 700 MHz band to support smart city services and public safety applications in Hongkou, Shangahai. This is also Nokia’s first contact in the 700 MHz LTE band.
The LTE network is being deployed to provide broadband connectivity for city services, specifically high-speed wireless links to video from cameras used for traffic control, video monitoring and analysis, and additional services in future. The network is based on Nokia’s FDD-LTE solution and offers the data capacity needed to support a variety of bandwidth-intensive video formats, including high-definition and ultra-high definition 4K, 3D and more. This deployment marks Nokia’s first for LTE technology in the 700 MHz spectrum band in China.
Ding Yong, General Manager of Oriental Pearl Digital TV, said: “Nokia has been an excellent partner for these new smart city initiatives. Their LTE 700 MHz technology performed extremely well in testing and the strong local support from Nokia Shanghai Bell has been very beneficial as well. We look forward to our continued close cooperation to bring smart city services to the people of Shanghai.
