ISLAMABAD (April 11 2009): Despite economic recession, Pakistan is an attractive place to adopt 3G for mobile operators as it would support the economic growth of Pakistan and meet the new needs for data services. This was stated by Saad Waraich, Pakistan and Afghanistan Country Director, Nokia Siemens Networks, while addressing media here on Friday.

He further said that licensing fee and mechanism for 3G should be economical and commercially viable and acceptable for both government and mobile operators. Waraich further said that the need for a richer communication service in Pakistan is raising the demand for 3G. "New services now and in the future require higher speed at an affordable cost while operators will have to face a huge increase in bandwidth demand". Waraich added.
He said that the shift from a mobile voice dominated business to a new era of data dominated services is affecting the operators business model, which will happen only if the operator cost structure supports this new business model. "3G is the most logical answer because it delivers the lowest cost per bit," said Saad Waraich.
He said that Nokia Siemens Networks believes evolving technologies such as 3G, which would support the economic growth of Pakistan and needs for data services. He said that WCDMA has become the 3G platform of choice for operators across the globe, with device manufacturers competing to launch the latest HSDPA-compliant handsets.
He said that Nokia Siemens Networks is the global leader in the deployment of high-speed mobile broadband networks, supplying WCDMA/HSPA networks close to 150 paying radio network customers worldwide. Nokia Siemens Networks delivers to 18 of the 25 biggest 3G operators in the world and the company has supplied nearly half of all currently live HSPA networks (December 08), he maintained.
He remarked that Nokia Siemens Networks Flexi Base Station has been recognised as the worlds most progressive mobile network technology at the annual GSMA Global Mobile Awards 2009. The Best Network Technology Advance award was presented to Flexi BTS at the Mobile World Congress 2009, Barcelona, in February 2009.
