Ulverston, UK, 21 July 2011. Marl International today announced that it has won a contract worth over £2 million with Nokia Siemens Networks to supply status indicator LEDs for cellular base stations for the European and Chinese markets.
Marl International created a custom LED for this application, which has been specifically designed to tolerate the high levels of EMI characteristic of this kind of system. 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.
