Munich -- Siemens mobile will deliver and install radio and switching technology for the construction of the 3G/W-CDMA network in the Czech Republic. In a first phase, T-Mobile wants to cover the greater Prague area.

"With this first 3G/W-CDMA contract in Eastern Europe, Siemens mobile can continue its 3G success story. We are proud that we once again were able to convince T-Mobile of our powerful solutions for the third generation of mobile communication," said Christoph Caselitz, President of Networks within Siemens Information and Communication Mobile.
With a total of currently 27 3G/W-CDMA contracts, Siemens mobile and NEC are among the world's three leading suppliers of mobile infrastructure solutions. In Europe, Siemens mobile has set up together with NEC the first commercial 3G/W-CDMA networks in Great Britain, Italy, and Austria. Up to this point, about 25,000 3G/W-CDMA base stations have been deployed. More than 2 million customers already place their calls over 3G/W-CDMA networks that are equipped with Siemens technology.
