Microwave Contract for Nokia and Telenor

August 29, 2006

Leading Nordic operator Telenor has awarded Nokia a global frame agreement for cellular transmission solutions and services. The solution helps keep operating expenditure in check, can be integrated into GSM and WCDMA 3G networks, and also meshes well with fixed network operations.

Under the agreement, Telenor will be supplied with Nokia Hopper microwave radios to be used for transmission from both base stations and fixed applications when new sites are deployed, or an increase in capacity is needed. The agreement covers all regions where the operator and its affiliated companies have operations.

"This two-year frame agreement extends our relationship with Telenor," said Finn Erik Hermansen, general manager, Networks, Nokia. "We are confident that Nokia's transmission solutions for fixed and mobile broadband networks will help Telenor maintain a high-capacity network cost-efficiently."
