Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN) head of Latin American Board said Wednesday that the company aims more on Brazil 4G network, about third of total i.e. 35 percent of country’s 4G network, reports Reuters.
“We don’t want to let go of a single percentage point,” the regional chairman of Nokia Siemens, Aluizio Byrro said in an interview, citing the company’s growing focus on Latin America, which contributes over 10 percent of revenue.
Byrro also said that the company is in talks with a local partner to start producing 4G equipments in Brazil by September to help wireless operators establishing coverage in host cities for the 2014 Soccer World Cup.
“We have been studying the possibility of producing in Brazil for some time and the conditions have improved quite a bit recently,” Byrro said. “The next big challenge is to also make Brazilian production competitive enough to export.”
