ST. PETERSBURG -- Delta Telecom, a mobile operator in St. Petersburg and the Leningrad region, and Lucent Technologies (NYSE: LU) today announced plans to expand Delta Telecom's Sky Link-branded CDMA450 network, and enhance the network to support CDMA2000(R) 1xEV-DO (Evolution Data Optimized) technology. The EV-DO network will enable Delta Telecom to provide its Sky Link subscribers in St. Petersburg with new, high-speed mobile data services such as complete mobile office capabilities, high-quality video-on-demand and other high-bandwidth services at speeds of up to 2.4 Megabits per second - more than 15 times faster than what's currently available.

The project, which the companies plan to complete by the end of 2005, includes increasing the capacity and coverage of the CDMA450 network in St. Petersburg and the Leningrad region. It also includes the deployment of the Bell Labs-developed Lucent Super-Distributed Home Location Register (S-DHLR), a key element of Lucent's IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) solution from its Accelerate(TM) Next Generation Communications Solutions portfolio.

"We see that the market is ripe to adopt the new, innovative services that will be enabled by Lucent's solutions," said Gennady Golant, general director, Delta Telecom. "With Lucent's EV-DO solutions, we will be able to deliver complete mobile office capabilities and ensure high-speed access to the complete range of applications and information resources that our corporate customers currently access via fixed networks, while maintaining the same high levels of reliability and security."
