Marl International has won a contract with Nokia Siemens Networks to supply status indicator LEDs for cellular base stations for the European and Chinese markets. According to Marl, the contract is worth over £2 million.
The company created a custom LED for the basestation application, which was specifically designed to tolerate high levels of EMI. Other adaptations include a custom lens. The contract was won in partnership with Marl’s German Distributor, JK Defence and the LEDs are being assembled in the Marl International headquarters in Ulverston, UK.
“Nokia selected Marl as a supplier on the basis of our ability to deliver a solution that fully met the demanding requirements of this application and our very high standards of quality,” said Adrian Rawlinson, Managing Director of Marl International. “Nokia Siemens Networks is a world leader in the cellular network market, an exceptionally challenging technology. Marl is proud and delighted to have the opportunity of working with their designers to deliver a highly visible system component to support a major network rollout in China.”
