[Nokia to add WiMAX solution to its radio access technology portfolio and announced it will be collaborating with Intel to accelerate the deployment of WiMAX technology. ]

Espoo -- Nokia today announced the inclusion of a future WiMAX solution providing a high-speed, limited coverage, data only complement to the fully mobile and standardized 3G voice and broadband data networks currently being launched globally.

Additionally, Nokia and Intel today announced a cooperation to accelerate the development, adoption and deployment of WiMAX technology, helping to bring new capabilities and data services to mobile users over high-speed broadband networks.

The companies will collaborate on several areas in support of mobile WiMAX technology (IEEE 802.16e) including mobile clients, network infrastructure and market development. For mobile devices and notebook platforms, Intel and Nokia will work closely to identify and deliver the unique power and performance requirements of the technology, and will work on base station strategies to help deploy a WiMAX network infrastructure that will provide adequate and reliable coverage.

In addition, the companies will engage in market development efforts to demonstrate to service providers and the industry how WiMAX can enhance data service capabilities of the network while complementing existing 3G networks. Lastly, Nokia and Intel will work together to ensure successful finalization of the 802.16e standard in IEEE and related specification work in the WiMAX Forum.

"Nokia's rich portfolio of wireless connectivity offers an attractive broadband wireless solution for any operator and any consumer. WiMAX complements the mainstream 3GPP evolution." said Pertti Korhonen, Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer, Nokia.

WiMAX provides high-capacity wireless broadband connectivity in metropolitan areas. WiMAX is promoted by the WiMAX Forum, of which Nokia is a founding member. WiMAX IEEE 802.16e version, which is expected to be standardized later this year, will offer increased portability of broadband Internet access.

Nokia continues its committment to 3.9G development, also called UTRAN LTE (Universal Terrestrial Radio Access Network Long Term Evolution) or Super 3G. Its peak data rates are targeted to reach up to 100 Mbps in the downlink and 50 Mbps in the uplink. The standard of 3.9G is to be finalized in 3GPP in mid 2007.
