[Nortel supplies Chile's Smartcom with CDMA2000 1xEVDO technology for deployment of their upgraded network in the Greater Santiago area.]

Santiago, Chile -- Smartcom an affiliate of Spain's Grupo Endesa, has deployed CDMA2000 1xEV-DO technology from Nortel Networks to boost its wireless network capacity and expand its service offerings in the Greater Santiago area.

The upgraded network makes it possible for Smartcom to offer advanced new broadband mobile services like high-speed broadband Internet access, virtual office, real-time video, and other data and multimedia services. Smartcom expects to start offering the new services immediately, allowing subscribers to access the Internet through third generation (3G) handsets, personal digital assistants (PDAs) and notebook computers equipped with wireless cards.

Nortel Networks recently completed evolution of Smartcom's CDMA2000 1X infrastructure (supplied by Nortel Networks in 2002) with 1xEV-DO technology. CDMA2000 1xEV-DO has been accepted by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) as an international third generation (3G) wireless standard. 1xEV-DO is a broadband radio technology that can support transmission speeds higher than those currently available using ADSL and cable modems. Smartcom's network can provide speeds bursting in excess of 2 megabits per second (Mbps) and 1xEV-DO users can expect more than 600 kilobits per second (Kbps) average throughput - equivalent to and in some cases better than fixed broadband.

Smartcom, of Spain's Endesa Group, is the third leading wireless operator in Chile, with over 1.4 million customers.
