My name is Supranee Saringkarnpoonperm. And I’m part of something revolutionary.
The end of the 20th century was a tough time for the Asian economy. The market crashed in 1997, right around the time I graduated from University in Bangkok, Thailand.
My career began when I was hired by what is now Nokia Networks. I started as a radio network planner in Bangkok, Thailand. Since then, I’ve been at the forefront of some of the most exciting developments in mobile technology, both in Asia and the US.
In 1998 I undertook an assignment in China. Just a short decade ago, China was very different than what it is now. The country had just opened up to the international community and we were there to build the mobile infrastructure needed to support exponentially growing demand to connect Billions of people with each other and the rest of the world. Mobile communication was no longer a luxury for a few but part of everyday life.
From China I moved to Japan in 2001, where we built our first 3G network. 3G ushered in the new era of mobile communication. It was the first technology that truly connected everyone through a common technology platform and brought cutting-edge data services and innovative applications to mobile users.
Today I’m based in the US, where we’re preparing for the deployment of LTE –the next stage in the evolution of wireless communication.
It’s an exciting time for telecom sector. And whatever happens next, I know that Nokia Networks will be leading the way and I’ll be along for the ride.
