Nokia Siemens Networks to start Smart Lab in Korea

Cloud computing, M2M (machine-to-machine), and smart devices

By CBR Staff Writer

Nokia Siemens Networks has said it will set up a Smart Lab in South Korea which will be focused on developing smart device-optimised applications, services and networks.

The new smart lab will explore the potential of wireless broadband technologies for delivering a superior end-user experience and is expected to open in the first quarter of 2011.

The new smart lab in Seoul will collaborate with operators and handset manufacturers in Korea to develop and optimise advanced services, applications and network infrastructure.

The company said that the lab would include R&D and industry collaboration on advanced broadband wireless technologies that support industry megatrends such as cloud computing, M2M (machine-to-machine), smart devices and other new form factors.

Nokia Siemens Networks chief technology officer Hossein Moiin said Korea boasts of a strong 3G infrastructure and the highest broadband penetration globally and as adoption of smart devices grows, all stakeholders are aggressively driving deployment of LTE and beyond.

"The country’s status as a global ICT innovation hub and an important market in its own right made it an obvious choice for our planned Smart Lab," Moiin said.
