M1 showcases 3G services in Singapore
Mobile operator M1 showcased a suite of 3G related services over its 3G network as its preparation for the commercial launch of next generation services in the second half of 2004 enters its final phases. Services such as video telephony, high speed video streaming, multi-player network gaming and 3G solutions and applications for the corporate sector were demonstrated to an audience comprising corporate clients, investment analysts and the media.

Video telephony took the spotlight when M1's Chief Executive Officer, Neil Montefiore, placed an international video call to Tokyo and had a chat with the Chairman of Vodafone K.K. (Japan), Yoshiro Hayashi.

Fun and entertainment content from M1's 3G mobile portal featured prominently in the showcase. These included music videos, movie trailers, customised TV programmes and video clips of soccer matches. For gaming enthusiasts, there were multi-player network games that allow several players to play against each other even if they are not in close proximity. Many of these applications are already available on GPRS but 3G bandwidth will result in higher delivery speed, better image quality and enhanced user experience.

For the corporate sector, many applications that currently work on local leased lines can be migrated to the 3G network, potentially saving businesses time and cost. Some of the solutions featured are cameras that can be deployed to monitor construction sites and lift landing and wireless videoconferencing.

M1 customers and members of the public will be able to enjoy a preview of some of the 3G services such as video telephony and fun and entertainment content when the 3G showcase moves to M1's flagship store at Paragon. The showcase for the public will last for just over two weeks from 28 November to 14 December 2003.
