CONSISTEL Press Release - November 2003


Singapore - CONSISTEL, the leading independent provider of wireless network solutions, today announced its implementation of 3G cellular comprehensive coverage enhancement in Singapore. This is the first in Singapore where seven buildings were successfully integrated and tested via a live 3G network.

As part of the plan to develop Singapore into a vibrant and competitive infocomm sector, IDA (Infocomm Development Authority), the incumbent regulatory body for telecommunications licensing and framework, has stipulated a nation-wide 3G network rollout by 31 December 2004. CONSISTEL is the first solutions provider to successfully design, implement and integrate the wireless networks from 2G to 3G for two major telecommunications service operators in Singapore. It has also jointly carried out tests on live 3G network services in these buildings and, the system coverage and performance have proven to be excellent. This is one of the few known tests carried out via a live 3G network to-date on the island.

The buildings that were integrated for 2G to 3G convergence are Raffles City Shopping Centre, Shaw Centre, Shaw House, Singapore Expo, Suntec Exhibition and Convention Centre, Suntec Shopping Centre and Wisma Atria.

“We are delighted that we have met the 31 Dec 2004 deadline by IDA one year in advance.“ said Mr. Masoud Bassiri, Chief Executive Officer at CONSISTEL.. “This is significant for CONSISTEL that we are able to meet the needs of our customers, who are challenged to keep up with market and regulatory conditions. The fact that we have developed, deployed and rolled-out 3G networks coverage and successfully tested it on a live 3G network in a short time span enables us to be confident of the process of making 3G a reality for Singapore.”
