[Nokia to supply GPRS upgrades for Hainan Mobile's entire radio-access network.]

Nokia will provide a GSM 900 network expansion and its short message service center (SMSC) solution to Hainan Mobile Communications in China in a deal worth USD 25 million. The contract allows Hainan Mobile Communications to enhance the coverage of its existing GSM 900 network, as well as strengthen its GPRS and short-message text services. Deliveries have already begun.

Under the agreement, Nokia will supply GSM switching equipment, radio access equipment and an SMSC, as well as GPRS upgrades for Hainan Mobile Communications' entire radio-access network. In addition, Nokia will supply upgrades to the operator's GSM 900 mobile switching centres to support advanced services such as virtual private network (VPN). Furthermore, a full package of professional services are provided including project management, network implementation, training and emergency support services.

Hainan Mobile Communications operates on the island of Hainan and has around 385,000 subscribers. Nokia is its sole infrastructure supplier, having already provided a complete GSM network under previous agreements, including WAP and GPRS.

"Nokia is very pleased to continue our partnership with one of the leading operators in China," said Lin Tao, General Manager of Hainan Province, Nokia (China) Investment Co. Ltd. "This agreement is further proof of Nokia's powerful capabilities in the GSM and GPRS fields. Nokia will continue to help Hainan Mobile provide advanced services and maintain a competitive edge in its market."
