To help raise awareness in the use of ICT to improve the country’s telecommunications landscape and the lives of Filipinos, Nokia Siemens Network in cooperation with the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC), Philippine Chamber of Telecommunication Operators, Inc. (PCTO), and Integrated Telecommunications Suppliers Association of the Philippines (ITESAP) is holding the Philippines First LTE Forum which will be held on May 8, 2009 at the NTC compound in Diliman, Quezon City.
The forum will focus on discussions to help bring ICT as the stimulus for growth of the country’s economy by using wireless broadband via LTE, or Long Term Evolution as the network evolution roadmap of GSM based mobile networks. LTE is the platform of the future for wireless broadband and it promises to be one of the most important new mobile technology rollouts since the arrival of GSM technology. LTE can bring true broadband speeds, driving advanced data applications to devices without the waiting. Since the country’s leading mobile operators are all GSM based and LTE is part of the GSM network evolution, LTE serves to be a good platform for the growing wireless broadband market.
Nokia Siemens Networks will bring in top local and international speakers for this event. PCTO President Rudy Salalima will discuss “The Growing Wireless Broadband Market in the Philippines”; NTC Commissioner Ruel Canobas will talk about “NTC Leadership in Tough Economic Times;” Nokia Siemens Networks Asia Pacific South Region Head Lars Biese will speak about “ICT as a Stimulus Towards Economic Growth;” Network Solution Management Asia Pacific Head Juergen Gerigk will provide a technology overview on LTE, Business Driver and explain why LTE is well suited for a WCDMA/HSPA based country like the Philippines; and lastly, Technology Office-Asia Pacific Senior Consultant Seksan Cheewaphoonpol will do a demonstration for participants to experience "True Wireless Broadband via LTE, Long Term Evolution.”
