M1 makes first live GPRS data call in Singapore using Nokia GPRS technology
Posted: 07-Jun-2000 [Source: Nokia press release]

[GPRS was tested over a live network in Singapore this week in a cooperation between Nokia and the Singapore carrier M1.]

M1 is the first operator in Singapore to have demonstrated a GPRS packet data call over its live network using Nokia GPRS technology. GPRS (General Packet Radio Service) is a major stepping stone in the development towards 3rd generation mobile systems and mobile multimedia services.

The greatest advantage of GPRS for mobile subscribers lies in the possibility to have continuous connectivity to the Internet, the corporate Intranet or a WAP portal, for fast access to new content-rich services.

While other operators are only starting to introduce GPRS in their networks, M1 is pleased to have completed an end-to-end packet data call over GPRS. GPRS will be an important carrier for M1's future data services, as the amount of Internet-based traffic in our mobile network grows, said Patrick Scodeller, Director, Engineering at M1. "M1 has always been on the cutting edge in the use of new technology and our goal is to continue to be first in introducing new and easy to use mobile services in Singapore".

"Nokia has completed several GPRS data calls with its customers around the world today and we are pleased to announce this milestone with M1 in Singapore. In addition, we have been able to fully implement this important technology in volumes, faster than any other vendor, supporting our customers every step of the way," says Marko Tiesmaki, Director, Mobile Systems, Nokia Networks, Asia Pacific. "Coupled with our experience in mastering the changes of the Mobile Internet, an early start in GPRS leads the way for success in 3rd Generation packet data networks."

Nokia is at the forefront of development and implementation of GPRS infrastructure for mobile operators, as existing second Generation networks evolve to 3G. Since August 1999, Nokia has delivered and implemented almost 40 GPRS Core networks to leading operators in Europe, USA, Asia and China, more than any other supplier.

The Nokia GPRS solution includes the Internet Protocol (IP) based core network infrastructure, the Nokia Serving GPRS Support Node (SGSN), the Nokia Gateway GPRS Support Node (GGSN), the Nokia Charging Gateway, the Lawful Intercept Gateway (LIG), the Domain NameServer, Router/Firewall and Ethernet switches, service charging and provisioning solution and applications.

M1, Singapore's most exciting and innovative mobile and paging service provider, is a consortium comprising the Keppel Group, Singapore Press Holdings, Cable & Wireless and Cable & Wireless HKT.
