HELSINKI -- Nokia and Globe Telecom have signed a deal for Nokia to supply GSM/EDGE equipment for Globe Telecom's Phase 10 Network expansion project.

The agreement covers the delivery of Nokia Networks equipment such as Basestation Transceiver Station, Mobile Switching Center and Transit MSC Upgrades, Home Location Register, Intelligent Network, as well as the implementation services related to the Network SubSystems elements. This deal follows the recent announcement for Nokia to rollout Globe's EDGE network solutions in Metro Manila.
