Chinese vice premier hosts NSN CEO for innovation talks

Nokia Solutions and Networks’ CEO Rajeev Suri, meeting with Chinese vice premier Wang Yang in Beijing, emphasized NSN’s expertise in TD technology and pledged to help position China as a world innovation hub.

The two parties discussed the need for greater Europe-China cooperation on innovation as well as the mutual benefits of further collaboration between NSN and China’s telecommunications industry.

Rajeev Suri said, “We provide telecommunications equipment and services to China’s three operators, serving over 350 million subscribers. NSN built the full value chain in China including R&D, manufacturing, global purchasing, customer operations, and services with over 8,000 employees. Our TD-LTE global R&D Headquarters in China is a clear example of our continuing investment in R&D to help position China as a global hub for innovation.”

The world leader in commercializing TD-LTE ecosystems, NSN is poised to become the number one foreign player in China’s telecommunications network industry. In 2013, NSN was the foreign vendor with the largest market share in China Mobile’s TD-LTE tender and was selected for the first time as an LTE partner by China Telecom.

NSN is currently working with China Unicom on the operator’s LTE tender.
