to customer demand.

"As a result of the 3G drive, we see an increasing demand for mobile
operators to offer services like face-to-face video calling, sending
video messages and similar services", says Eva Lindqvist, President of
TeliaSonera International Carrier. "For the mobile operator it is
crucial that these services are of first-rate quality. We are now able
