[Hong Kong GSM operator, New World Mobility (NWM), has contracted with Nokia to expand its GSM network to include EDGE and Push to Talk over Cellular (PoC) with commercial services planned for later this year.]

Espoo, Finland -- New World Mobility (NWM) and Nokia have signed a USD 30 million contract for the expansion of the Hong Kong operator's GSM network, including EDGE and Push to talk over Cellular (PoC). Deliveries have already begun, with commercial services planned for later this year.

Under the agreement Nokia will be the sole GSM and EDGE supplier for the eleventh phase of New World Mobility's network deployment, enhancing the capacity and quality of both voice and data services for its 1.2 million subscribers.

"The market potential is enormous," says Dr. Norman Wai, President and CEO, New World Mobility. "PoC has clearly shown that it's a winner, and we know our customers are eager to use this service that can provide them with a convenient instant form of communication for groups. We see it as a strong weapon that will help boost mobile data usage as well as our ARPU levels."

In addition to its GSM and EDGE solutions, Nokia will provide a wide range of services, including solution consulting and integration, core network implementation, network audit and benchmarking service to optimize network and service performance levels. Also included are hardware services and training services to keep the solution running at peak performance. The system is supported by Nokia NetAct (TM), the only fully featured, multi-vendor, multi-technology operations support system on a single platform.
