Movicel has selected Nortel to upgrade its wireless network in Angola to CDMA2000 1xEV-DO technology to boost capacity of its MoviNet Service and help address growing nationwide demand for advanced wireless data services like telemedicine and Internet access.

Movicel is Africa's largest CDMA operator, providing high speed wireless broadband services to 350,000 subscribers in Angola's capital Luanda and eight major provinces including Bengo, Kuanza Norte, Cabinda, Benguela, Huambo, Namibe, Zaire and Huila.

Nortel and Movicel demonstrated the new EV-DO services at the annual International Fair of Luanda (FILDA 2005) in Angola, July 11-17, 2005. The technology won the "Best Innovation Golden Lion" award as the outstanding technology at the show. FILDA is considered the biggest business and industrial exhibition of Angola with approximately 17 countries participating, including Portugal, Brazil, Spain, Germany, Argentina, Uruguay, South Africa, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Namibia and several other African countries.

"Peace in Angola has led to growth in all areas, particularly the telecoms sector," said Jose Luis De Lara, chief technology officer, Movicel. "Today, Movicel offers Angolans the most advanced wireless technology and therefore the best quality services. Due to our upcoming upgrade with Nortel, we expect to enhance our product offering to a fully featured third generation national network and services such as MMS and high speed Internet access, targeting 1 to 1.5 million subscribers in five years time."

With commercial implementation of EV-DO, Movicel will be able to expand into new markets and offer enhanced wireless broadband services to large enterprises, medium and small offices, and residential subscribers.

CDMA2000 1xEV-DO is a packet data system offering high speed data rates (up to 2.4Mbps) on wireless networks. Nortel's solution helps maximize wireless operator investments while supporting subscriber retention via enhanced end user experience. Nortel's Metro Cell BTS, coupled with its full IP Core, enables delivery of a high-performance wireless data solution.
