SingTel Pushes The Boundaries Of Mobile Innovation With LTE-Advanced, LTE Broadcast And Ericsson Radio Dot System

STOCKHOLM, Sweden, Feb. 24, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SingTel, Asia's leading communications company, will set a new benchmark for mobile services with the launch of a range of groundbreaking 4G/LTE services this year in collaboration with Ericsson. These include:

  • 300Mbps mobile broadband service with LTE-Advanced
  • Improved video streaming with LTE Broadcast technology
  • Enhanced indoor coverage with Ericsson Radio Dot System technology

Mr Tay Soo Meng, SingTel's Group Chief Technology Officer, said: "SingTel is continually enhancing and upgrading its networks to deliver the fastest and most consistent mobile services. We are focused on improving customer experience by adopting the latest technologies and pushing the boundaries of innovation."

Mr Nicholas Seow, Head of Ericsson Singapore and Brunei, said: "We are pleased to be able to support a trailblazer like SingTel in its ambitions to continue to lead the way in its market. With our groundbreaking solutions, we are committed to enabling SingTel to provide world-class mobile services and seize opportunities for growth."

300Mbps mobile broadband service with LTE-Advanced

SingTel is working closely with Ericsson to upgrade its Singapore 4G network to LTE-Advanced later this year. This will enable SingTel to boost the maximum data speeds of its 4G service to 300Mbps. This is double the speed currently offered. 

With this upgrade, customers will enjoy an unrivalled experience for video, music, games and other multimedia content on-the-move, as well as web surfing and communications.

LTE-Advanced enables the aggregation of multiple mobile spectrum bands, delivering higher data speeds, greater spectral efficiency, and an increase in system capacity.  Network performance on the cell edge will also be greatly improved, providing mobile users with better coverage and experience.

Improved video streaming with LTE Broadcast technology

To enhance the experience for the large number of Singapore consumers who use their mobile devices to view videos, SingTel will undertake a trial of LTE Broadcast technology in the second half of the year.
