Nokia Siemens Networks supplied the Mobile TV streaming solution for SingTel's newly launched mio TV Mobile service. SingTel's deployment uses Nokia Siemens Networks' Media Delivery Solution (MDS) 3.5 platform. The phone application is based on Adobe's Flash Lite technology. Nokia Siemens Networks' Mobile TV solution can be extended to support various standards including video streaming (unicast), and future technologies. The contract also includes a range of services which has allowed SingTel to rapidly start its new Mobile TV offering and guarantee ongoing platform stability and quality. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Nokia Siemens Networks said this is its first Singapore deal with SingTel and marks a milestone for both companies in pushing the Mobile TV envelope in the country.
