First live UMTS call with mobile network and telephone from Siemens in Luxembourg

Luxembourg has now also taken off into the UMTS age: Only six weeks after the mobile provider P&TLuxembourg and the Siemens Information and Communication Mobile Group (Siemens mobile) signed a UMTS master agreement, the first live call was transmitted to Luxembourg live via UMTS. Lothar Pauly, Board member of Siemens Information and Communication Mobile, and P&T General Director Marcel Gross engaged in the call today, Wednesday, 22 January, with the UMTS telephone U10 from Siemens and thus demonstrated the functionality of Siemens technology. In addition, music selections, television images, and short video files were transmitted via UMTS.

Siemens mobile will now deliver and set up the complete UMTS mobile network of P&T in Luxembourg as sole supplier. Broadband services, such as mobile access to the Internet and the transmission of moving pictures, will now be available to the nearly 300,000 customers of the LUXGSM mobile network operated by P&TLuxembourg. With more than 100 percent GSM customers, Luxembourg has one of the highest market penetration rates worldwide.
