Qatar Telecom to Launch DVB-H Mobile TV with NSN

Qatar Telecom (Qtel) and Nokia Siemens Networks have signed the world's first commercial Mobile TV deployment contract based on DVB-H and OMA BCast Smart Card Profile technology.

Specifically, Nokia Siemens Networks will supply Qtel with a Digital Video Broadcasting Handheld (DVB-H) solution providing their subscribers enhanced TV viewing experiences on their mobile phones. Nokia Siemens Networks will roll out a DVB-H solution with OMA BCast Smart Card Profile (SCP) for Qtel.


For the authentication of mobile TV subscribers, Nokia Siemens Networks is providing its One-BSF solution, forming a key part of Qtel's Unified Subscriber Database strategy for creating a common subscriber profile to be used for both mobile and DVB-H service. In addition, Nokia, the infrastructure vendor's parent company, will provide Nokia N96 handsets to test the first SCP compliant software that enables subscribers to choose from among a host of payment models and interactivity options. Financial terms were not disclosed.http://www.nsn.com
