Nokia wins a global contract from Telenor for its cellular transmission solutions


August 21, 2006, Espoo, Finland - Leading Nordic operator Telenor has awarded Nokia a global frame agreement for cellular transmission solutions and services. The Nokia 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, Nokia will supply Telenor 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 Telenor and its affiliated companies have operations.

“This two-year frame agreement extends our relationship with Telenor,” says 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.”

Nokia Hopper microwave radios come in a wide product range, with over 200,000 such radios in use today all over the world.
