PRAGUE, Czech Republic -- Telefonica O2 Czech Republic has enhanced its fixed and mobile broadband services portfolio with new converged services by upgrading its CDMA network to Rev A with a Nortel(1) (TSX: NT)(NYSE: NT) CDMA solution.

Network innovation is a key contributor to Telefonica O2 Czech Republic´s continuing growth and now Nortel´s CDMA Rev A technology is enabling the company to offer new real-time applications, such as mobile VoIP, video and multimedia interactive services, using the solution´s ability to offer high-bandwidth services in both directions - network to user with peak speeds of up to 3.1 Mbps and user to the network with peak speeds up to 1.8 Mbps.

With over five million mobile subscribers, Telefonica O2 Czech Republic is one of the largest providers of wireless services in the country. The company recently announced that it had over 110,000 CDMA customers using services such as O2 Internet Mobile Plus Go which enables users to go online whenever and wherever they are using their O2 mobile Internet connection to surf the Internet at home or on the road. The new network upgrade will enable more users in more cities and towns to benefit from affordable voice and mobile broadband services.

The Quality of Service mechanisms in EV-DO Rev A support real-time interactive access to services such as VoIP, interactive 3D-gaming, push-to-talk, mobile television and video telephony. The company upgraded its CDMA2000 1x EV DO REV 0@450MHz network to Rev A technology to ensure the delivery of always-on connectivity with mobile broadband capabilities.

"With CDMA 1x EV-DO Rev A at 450MHz, Telefonica O2 Czech Republic can offer personal wireless broadband services, with much higher speeds, making it ideal for mobile business users needing to access and send data intensive applications and download and upload large attachments," said Pavel Kolar, chief network infrastructure officer, Telefonica O2 Czech Republic.

"By using its broadband wireless spectrum more efficiently Telefonica O2 Czech Republic can deliver new, revenue-generating services that will provide a powerful competitive advantage and enhance the user experience," said Wim Te Niet, president Central Region EMEA, Nortel. "And, with high-speed, always-on services, users can increase their productivity, because once a connection has been made, the information - no matter how data-intensive - can be sent and received without delay."
