Nokia Siemens Networks, a joint venture between Nokia and Siemens, opening up an assembly line in Brazil so as to build next generation mobile phone networks, Reuters reports. It is expected that the plant should begin shipping fourth-generation (4G) wireless equipment at the start of October as schedule totally according to 2014 World Cup.
Ken Wirth, head of the Americas region for Nokia Siemens said: For Nokia Siemens, the demand from four Brazilian operators starting up their 4G networks will be enough to justify the local manufacturing capacity for the next 12 to 18 months.
The company has already signed 4G contracts with a Brazilian carrier and a Chilean carrier. Well, we believe with the World Cup, the game will be on for NSN too.
