Posted: 24-May-2000 [Source: Nokia press release]

[Nokia captures a US$300 million contract with Singapore's new carrier.]

Nokia has signed an agreement with StarHub to supply a Third Generation (3G) network solution, including Nokia's advanced WCDMA 3G core and radio access network equipment. This marks the first deal in Asia for the delivery of a complete 3G System. The value of this contract is about US$ 300 million. With this agreement Nokia strengthens it's leadership in 3G by now having 3G partners in 4 countries globally, more than any other supplier.

For 3G core networks, Nokia is developing an All IP solution that enables all voice, data and multimedia services to be supported over an end to end IP transport network. An All IP core network solution brings differentiation and cost efficiency that will be critical to operators in the 3G environment.

In support of StarHub's aim to position itself at the forefront of future Mobile Internet services, Nokia will deliver its triple-mode Nokia UltraSite base stations and GPRS solution. In addition, Nokia will provide extensive 3G System Integration expertise to integrate and develop end-user applications for StarHub's operations in Singapore.

The Nokia supplied GSM 1800 network, including switching and base stations, will also be expanded to support StarHub's fast growing customer base. The agreement means that Nokia remains the sole-supplier for StarHub's mobile network technologies.

Said Mr Terry Clontz, CEO, StarHub, "Individuals and businesses in Singapore have enthusiastically embraced mobile technology as penetration rates have reached more than 50% for handphones. We believe the market for Broadband services will show a similar growth pattern over the next two years as new Internet Protocol (IP) based applications require more bandwidth, and consumers demand higher levels of performance. With our early commitment to 3G mobile services, StarHub takes the lead in bringing real benefits to consumers in Singapore as mobile, IP, and broadband technologies converge."

"We are delighted to sign this deal with an innovative operator such as StarHub. With this announcement Nokia continues to break new ground as we head towards the 3G age," says Dr. JT Bergqvist, Head of 3G Business Program, Nokia Networks. "Our leading position in 3G today is a clear proof of the competitiveness of our 3G solution and gives us full confidence in preparing for the Mobile Information Society."
