The war is under way, though no one declared it and no one will confirm it. This is the secret war against Iran’s nuclear project. It did not start this week or last month. It has been under way for years, but only faint echoes have reached the public.

In June 2010, the press reported that the computer system operating the uranium enrichment centrifuges at Natanz had been infected with a virus. A deadly worm, known as Stuxnet, had infiltrated the controllers, manufactured by Siemens.

Two weeks ago, a huge blast ripped through a Revolutionary Guards military base 40 kilometers west of Tehran. The explosion could be heard as far away as the capital. Dozens of people were killed, including the head of Iran’s missile development project, General Hassan Tehrani Moqaddam. This week, there was a powerful explosion in Isfahan, Iran’s third-largest city, which has a uranium conversion plant on its outskirts. It is not yet clear what was damaged in the blast.

These incidents involved three key elements of Iran’s nuclear program. The first is uranium conversion (which comes after the mineral has been mined ), the second is enrichment, and the third is the delivery means.

Coupled with other incidents, including the assassination of several Iranian nuclear scientists, these events have worried the ayatollahs’ regime, causing reactions ranging from embarrassment to anger. The public response usually follows a pattern: first a sweeping denial, then a limp and stuttering admission that “something happened,” and finally the claim that it was an “accident.” This shows that the regime does not know exactly what to say, and that its voice is not uniform. It also reflects the fierce dispute within the regime’s top ranks. The leadership is divided, and the reactions come from a range of ministries, rival organizations and competing media outlets.


  • Nokia Siemens Networks is in talks with Indian wireless broadband players to set up the back-end infrastructure to help them provide broadband wireless access (BWA) services in the country.
  • Five companies—Reliance Industries, Bharti Airtel, Aircel, Tikona and Qualcomm—had won BWA licences and spectrum in the auctions by the government last year. Of these, Reliance Industries and Aircel are known to be conducting vendor valuations.
  • Nokia Siemens Networks is also looking to sell devices it has designed for the TD-LTE, a version of the long-term evolution (LTE) technology, for BWA services. The devices include dongles and modems, which would be sold by Nokia Siemens Networks to operators, who would then bundle them in offers to consumers.
  • Nokia Siemens Networks, which recently acquired the devices business of Motorola, is strengthening its devices portfolio with specialised, next-generation TD-LTE devices. The company sees an opportunity in India, where companies have already spoken of their allegiance to technology, which is favouring the system to provide high-speed broadband (as high as 30 mbps) using BWA spectrum.

  • Nokia Siemens Networks has launched three new 4G devices at PT Expo Comm in Beijing, China. The devices allow consumers to enjoy broadband access at up to 102 Mbps (Megabits per second) downlink and 51 Mbps uplink to support data-intensive services on TD-LTE (time division-duplex, long term evolution) networks.


  • A plug-and-play USB dongle, the Nokia Siemens Networks USB-lte 7210 offers mobile broadband to laptops and compatible tablets whilst on the move. Nokia Siemens Networks CPEi-lte 7212 is a wireless router built for indoor use that provides fixed wireless connectivity to TD-LTE services via WiFi or Ethernet. A further wireless router, Nokia Siemens Networks CPEo-lte 7210, built to withstand the weather and be mounted outdoors, can also provide broadband access. The devices are commercially available to support 4G services using the TD-LTE standard in the 2.3 GHz and 2.6 GHz bands allocated for wireless broadband in many parts of the globe.


  • The availability of compatible devices in the market can be a significant factor in the uptake of a new wireless technology. By providing devices directly, we allow our customers to offer complete broadband packages to consumers, which in turn would speed up the adoption of new 4G services,” said Ken Riordan, head of devices at Nokia Siemens Networks.

  • Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN) unveiled on Tuesday its new Liquid technology which promises to ease telecom network congestion and possibly change the market for such equipment for good.


  • The technology from the world’s No. 2 mobile gear maker after Ericsson shares network resources across mobile and broadband networks, similar to cloud computing.


  • For operators it offers a better use of capital. You invest in total network load, not in peak levels,” Phil Twist, head of marketing at NSN’s Network Systems unit, said in an interview. Telecom operators around the world are struggling with a shortage of network capacity as the use of video on smartphones and tablets proliferates. The shortages usually occur during rush hours at specific locations.


  • Networks at city centers are crowded, base stations in suburbs which are scarcely used during the daytime. With traditional technology, operators have to buy new base stations for the centers to cope with the growth. According to Nokia Siemens, up to 80 percent of base stations’ processing capacity and up to half of core networks’ capacity is unused.
