ESPOO, Finland -- Following successful trials over recent months, Vodafone Sweden has chosen Nokia to deploy its Push to Talk over Cellular (PoC) network solution. Vodafone Sweden will launch the service in September.

Nokia is undertaking a comprehensive project to provide a solution developed to meet Vodafone Sweden's specific PoC needs. The project includes installation, commissioning and system integration of Nokia's PoC to Vodafone Sweden's systems.

Paul Moonga, Marketing Director at Vodafone Sweden said, "Push to talk is an efficient way of communicating suitable for businesses where communication is intensive, that is, service, retail, and distribution-based industries. With Nokia's solution we can offer our business customers this new way of communication. Also on the consumer market we truly believe costumers will find use for the service, since it delivers fast voice communication to the whole circle of friends simultaneously."

"We are happy to continue to support Vodafone Sweden in delivering innovative and advanced services," said Martin Rönnlund, Senior Account Manager, Networks, Nokia. "The agreement further enhances Nokia's relationship with Vodafone Sweden and fully demonstrates their commitment to offer attractive mobile services to their customers. It also highlights Nokia's capabilities to carry out the kind of comprehensive projects needed to deploy and integrate PoC to individual customers' systems.
