TD-LTE network and subscriber devices provide fixed wireless broadband in Brazil

Wireless broadband services using 4G technology are now available in Brazil. Cable and satellite TV provider SKY is offering the services in Brasília via a TD-LTE network provided by Nokia Siemens Networks.

The company plans to roll out services to new customers in other cities of Brazil, and other countries in Latin America, in the future. TD-LTE is a 4G mobile broadband technology which enables high data throughputs with superior reliability, allowing users to benefit from a wide range of new and innovative multimedia applications and services.

“We are committed to the overall LTE ecosystem and driving the adoption of 4G technology globally,” said Eduardo Araujo, head of Latin America region, Nokia Siemens Networks. “With this deal, we are delighted to have brought 4G to Brazil through our partnership with SKY.”

Under the three-year contract, NSN has provided the TD-LTE radio network based on its Flexi Multiradio Base Station. In addition, Nokia Siemens Networks has provided its CPEi-lte 7212, a wireless router built for indoor use that provides fixed wireless connectivity to TD-LTE services via WiFi or Ethernet.
