[TCC, Taiwan's largest mobile operator, signs with Nokia to complete the next phase of its 3G WCDMA network set for preliminary launch in Q1 2005.]
Taiwan Cellular Corporation has selected Nokia to complete the next phase of its WCDMA 3G network roll-out under an agreement for the sole supply of full range of core and radio network equipment. The expansion contract follows a 2002 agreement with Nokia for completion of the first deployment phase.
Deliveries have already begun to support a preliminary service launch in the first quarter 2005.
TCC Group is Taiwan's largest mobile operator, with over eight million 2G subscribers and three portfolio operators: Taiwan Cellular Corporation, TransAsia Telecommunications and the newly acquired Mobitai Communications.
In addition to a complete WCDMA 3G system, including circuit and packet core equipment, Nokia is supplying a range of professional services to support the deployment. The networks will be managed using Nokia NetAct (TM), the only fully featured, multi-vendor, multi-technology operations support system (OSS) on a single platform.
Nokia has previously supplied TCC's complete GPRS system, and under the 2002 agreement supplied a major part of WCDMA 3G for the initial network deployment.
