[Nokia to be sole supplier of O2 Ireland's W-LAN system.]

O2 Ireland has chosen Nokia to be sole supplier of its public Wireless LAN (WLAN) system, which gives O2 Ireland's customers flexible wireless broadband access to Internet and corporate intranet services in public "Wi-Fi Zones(TM)", such as airports and hotels. Under the agreement, Nokia is providing its Operator Wireless LAN solution, while IBM Global Service is providing system integration services. The agreement follows a successful validation period and business modelling with O2 Ireland.

"Broadband Internet access is going wireless in Ireland, and we are happy to be part of this exciting development," said Paul Tyler, Senior Account Manager, Nokia Networks. "The flexible design of the Nokia A036 access point has helped O2 Ireland deploy WLAN access zones in a variety of installation settings. It can be used with an internal or external antenna, so installation can be optimized for service-area coverage and a minimum visual impact. We feel that the Nokia Operator WLAN solution will greatly complement O2 Ireland's other wireless services, such as GPRS."

"We chose Nokia's WLAN solution because it provides all the elements needed for complete wireless access service for our customers," said Tony Dempsey, WLAN Programme Manager, O2 Ireland. "Nokia's solution has proved itself to be robust and met all of our customer requirements. It has the option to support GPRS roaming and EAP/SIM authentication, meaning that we can provide public Wireless LAN services for all customer segments; pre-paid, post-paid, national and international customers, and those using existing terminals as well as terminals of emerging standards. Customers will also find the service easy to use since there is no need to modify many of the browser settings that already exist in their laptops and PDAs."

Nokia has been driving the standardization for high-data-rate wireless networks and is committed to be one of the first suppliers to deliver Wireless LAN and 3G commercial solutions in converged networks.

Nokia Wireless LAN technology is also available from IBM global Services.
