Alcatel and Samsung to Develop S-Band Mobile Handsets

Alcatel and Samsung Electronics agreed to develop mobile handsets
compatible with the evolution of the DVB-H standard in the S-Band. The companies will collaborate on interoperability testing in order
to deliver a seamless end-to-end solution to operators and a high quality Mobile TV service to end-users. Both companies will support the standardization process of this solution in the DVB Forum undertaken in the DVB-SSP (Satellite Services for Portable devices) Ad-Hoc Group, and join forces to market their combined solution. In a first step, this agreement covers Europe, where the S-band spectrum is available today.
