GPRS network in France gets underway
Posted: 04-Jul-2000 [Source: Nokia press release]

[Continuous access to WAP portals and other content rich applications will be coming soon to French mobile users thanks to cooperation between Nokia and French operator Cegetel.]

Nokia has been chosen to supply leading French mobile operator Cegetel's GPRS core network. Deliveries commence immediately.

The Nokia GPRS core network solution will be integrated into Cegetel's existing GSM 900 and 1800 network allowing the roll-out of packet-based Mobile Internet services to Cegetel subscribers across France.

The greatest advantage of GPRS for mobile subscribers lies in the possibility to have continuous connectivity to the Internet, the corporate Intranet or a WAP portal, for fast access to new content-rich services.

The Nokia GPRS solution includes the Internet Protocol (IP) based core network infrastructure, the Nokia Serving GPRS Support Node (SGSN), the Nokia Gateway GPRS Support Node (GGSN), the Nokia Charging Gateway, the Domain Name Server, Router/Firewall and Ethernet switches. In addition, Nokia will provide services for the integration of the GPRS core network into Cegetel existing telecoms networks and information systems.

"The integration of GPRS in our network is an important step. We expect demand for the Internet and enhanced wireless data services will increase rapidly over the next few years. With the Nokia GPRS solution, Cegetel will be able to meet that demand and be at the forefront of developments for mobile data services," said Pierre Bardon, Managing Director, SFR.

"Nokia has been working with Cegetel for 12 years and we have been supporting them every step of the way through the evolution of their network, paving the way for 3G. This deal is a result of this close co-operation," said Paul-Henri Ferrand, Area General Manager, Nokia Networks France & North West Africa.
