Posted: 30-Oct-2002 [Source: Nokia press release]

[Taiwan's Chunghwa Telecom, the largest mobile operator in Taiwan, chooses Nokia as turnkey supplier of its 3G network in deal worth 400 million euro.]

Nokia has won a 400 million euro deal as turnkey supplier of CHT's 3G network in Taiwan. Deliveries begin during fourth quarter 2002 with Nokia providing both 3G core and radio-access network equipment for the smooth roll-out and introduction of CHT's nationwide WCDMA network.

The Nokia WCDMA 3G solution will enable CHT's 7.3 million customers to enjoy advanced multimedia mobile services, such as multimedia messaging, mobile entertainment, mobile location services, corporate services, and m-commerce.

Under the agreement, Nokia will supply an extensive range of operator services to help CHT maximize their operating efficiency and add value to their business case. These services include network planning, site acquisition, project management, installation, commissioning, pre-launch optimization and multivendor network integration for fast ramp-up and seamless overlay of new technologies.

Furthermore, a wide range of care services, including a dedicated local team and expert online support around the clock, spare parts management, hardware repair, extensive operations support services, training and continuous network optimization will help CHT launch efficient 3G operations and realize the full potential of their investment.

"We feel sure that Nokia's 3G solution will provide technologically superior service and will meet our needs for cost-efficient and effective roll-out to deliver 3G services to our customers in the highly competitive Taiwanese market," said Mr Yue Chin-Yi, President of CHT Mobile Business Group.

"CHT has placed its trust in Nokia's end-to-end system capability in 3G. In both the delivery and care phases, Nokia has demonstrated their proven ability and dedication to support us with fast network ramp-up and overall system maintenance and optimization," he added.

Nokia has been working with CHT since 1999, having supplied the operator's GPRS core network, multimedia messaging solution (MMS) and ADSL for high-speed fixed Internet access in addition to the WCDMA trial system.

"3G is a cornerstone of advanced mobile services and we are delighted to be supplying this network to CHT as it migrates to future generation services and applications," explains James Lin, Vice President and General Manager, Business Development, Nokia Networks Asia Pacific.

"This agreement marks a milestone in our long and excellent cooperation with CHT. The Nokia 3G solution will help CHT to be a front runner in the race to true multimedia services in its' very competitive home market," he added.

WCDMA is the most efficient technology for integrated mobile voice and data networks. WCDMA - like GSM/EDGE technologies - is a fully standardized global solution with open interfaces. It provides high-data rates and the benefits of global production volumes. WCDMA is fast emerging as the global standard of choice for next-generation communications, with 85% of the global 3G network markets expected to be based on WCDMA. Nokia is a leading supplier in WCDMA infrastructure, with over 30 customers around the world.

Chunghwa Telecom is the incumbent state-owned operator, which has committed itself to innovation, speed, reliability, simplicity, and economy. It seeks to enter the ranks of the world-class telecom carriers by linking the world and the people through superior service, enterprising management, and continually improving performance. Chunghwa Telecom operates both domestic and international telecom businesses. Chunghwa is the biggest mobile operator in Taiwan and has 7.3 million mobile subscribers, which is around 32% market share in Taiwan.
