Telenor Mobil Chooses Nokia for the Supply of Its Commercial GPRS Core Network in Norway

Nokia (NYSE:NOK) has been selected by Telenor Mobil, the leading GSM network operator in Norway, as the supplier for their General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) core network. The companies have been in GPRS co-operation since September last year, when Nokia provided a complete GPRS network for Telenor Mobil's trial system.

Nokia is at the forefront of development and implementation of GPRS infrastructure for mobile operators, as existing second Generation networks evolve to 3G. With GPRS, Telenor Mobil will be ideally positioned to offer new, exciting applications and services for their mobile subscribers.

"Nokia's GPRS offers secure high-speed transmission for IP-based data traffic. With the continued rise in our mobile subscriber base and Internet connections in Norway, we see a future demand for access to content-rich, high bit-rate services," says Trond Wiborg, Vice President, Telenor Mobil. "Nokia's ability to deliver and implement a commercially-ready GPRS core network will enable Telenor Mobil to provide some of the most advanced mobile communications services in the world."

"We are sincerely pleased to extend our relationship with Telenor Mobil, for the delivery of their GPRS core network, and in this way contribute to launch of commercial GPRS services in the Norwegian market " says Finn Erik Hermansen, Managing Director, Nokia Norway. "GPRS is part of the future 3G infrastructure, and an increasing number of operators around the world are choosing Nokia for the supply of their commercial GPRS networks as they invest in laying the ground for mobile multimedia services."

Nokia has now delivered more than 30 GPRS core networks, more than any other supplier has delivered to-date. Nokia's success in the competitive GPRS market is because it offers a secure, end-to-end solution, with a complete IP billing system and customer care package including the Nokia Charging Centre.

The Nokia GPRS solution includes the Internet Protocol (IP) core network infrastructure, the Serving GPRS Support Node, the Gateway GPRS Support Node, the Domain Name Server, the Charging Gateway, Router/Firewall and Ethernet switches, service charging and provisioning solution and applications.
