Hainan MCC, a subsidiary of the country’s leading operator, China Mobile showcased cutting edge 3G business and consumer applications such as mobile Internet access, video call, video monitoring and interactive voice response using its live, high-quality 3G TD-SCDMA network. The demonstration was supported by its solution partner Nokia Siemens Networks.

Nokia Siemens Networks and Hainan MCC also used the forum to showcase the energy efficient Green Solution that looks at reducing the environmental footprint of a mobile network through its entire lifecycle, decreasing energy consumption up to 70%.
