Nokia to Supply WAP Gateway to Norweb Telecom in the UK

Nokia and Norweb Telecom are to co-operate on the development of WAP services for the UK corporate market with the view to deploying full commercial services later this year.

The deal, which includes System Integration and consultancy will enable Norweb Telecom to create and test wireless applications.

Norweb Telecom is trialling its first WAP application from Time System of Denmark, an application particularly suited to Norweb Telecom's customer base where time and project management are increasingly important for small to medium size enterprises (SMEs). This will be NorwebTelecom's first venture in to mobile services, after having acquired a mobile service provider (MSP) Intercell earlier this year.

"We're investing heavily in the UK SME market, an area previously overlooked by many large telecoms operators, to enable small businesses access to the same technologies that previously only large corporations could enjoy," explained Mr Jeremy Deering, Managing Director. "Having the capability to offer mobile services is an important aspect of our future strategy and working together with such an established company such as Nokia enables us to achieve this, using leading edge technology such as WAP to provide exciting and valuable applications that our customers want."

"Access to critical information, independent of time and place is driving the need for services and solutions that are also not tied to any one place and Nokia's WAP solutions make this possible," said Peter Kuhne, Area Vice President, West Europe and Africa, Nokia Networks. "Norweb Telecom is taking an innovative approach to the opportunities that deregulation has presented and we are pleased to be working with them to put the Internet in their customers' pockets."
