My name is Bruce Brown. And I’m part of something innovative.
Bonjour from Montreal.
I come from Florida, so I’m not used to cold weather. But when I got the chance to go north of the border to help deploy a cutting-edge 3G network to customers in Canada, it was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up.
To make the network more reliable, we integrated our unique home location registers. These special databases are replicated across multiple sites so if one site fails, the other sites can take over seamlessly. The result is a faster and more reliable network connection that ensures that users have all of their services available, no matter where they are.
The project has been a great learning experience for me. The technology is brand new, so we’ve all enjoyed getting to grips with it. And while I’ve been here in Montreal, I’ve had the chance to brush up on my French too.
I’m a keen gardener in my spare time. So if I’ve missed anything since I’ve been in Canada, it’s tending my vegetable patch. But we’ve had a wonderfully warm welcome from our Canadian colleagues. And my wife and I have had a great time exploring museums and galleries in Montreal and Toronto in the weekends.
I’d hate to be stuck in a repetitious job. But in the world of communications, there’s always something new on the horizon. For example, we are now looking at LTE and next generation data solutions that will deliver even more speed and reliability.
At Nokia Siemens Networks, we never run out of challenges. That’s why I look forward to going to work every day.
