As Singapore’s 49th birthday bash is around the corner, StarHub is doing its part to support the celebrations in and around ‘The Float@Marina Bay’, where a crowd of over 30,000 per show will congregate in the coming Saturdays. Many are expected to share their experiences through photos and videos on their mobile devices.

As with any large-scale events, our support for the National Day Parade (NDP) 2014 began months in advance. After reviewing the mobile traffic handling capacity of our equipment, we have enhanced mobile coverage and added capacity at over 30 mobile base stations in the location to ensure NDP goers will enjoy excellent service experience.

We will also deploy our upgraded solar-powered ‘Cellular-On-Wheels’ van right beside the seating gallery at The Float@Marina Bay. Affectionately known as ‘COW’, this mobile base station alone is able to handle mobile traffic from 2,000 users.

StarHub network engineers will be on-site to monitor base station performance, in addition to engineers at our network operation centre that remotely monitors the health of our nationwide network around-the-clock.

During NDP 2013, we achieved 100% uptime for our mobile network, which processed six times more download traffic and 14 times more upload traffic.
