HELSINKI -- Taiwan Cellular Corporation has selected Nokia to complete the next phase of its WCDMA 3G network roll-out under an agreement for the sole supply of full range of core and radio network equipment. The expansion contract, which follows a 2002 agreement for the first deployment phase, reinforces Nokia's strong position both in Taiwan and in 3G.

Deliveries have already begun to support a preliminary service launch in the first quarter 2005.

"Our experience with Nokia has been pleasant," says Harvey Chang, President and CEO, TCC. "Nokia's advanced 3G technology and its knowledge of end-to-end systems is crucial for our future 3G offering. As we work toward the launch of our network, we are happy to have a trusted partner in 3G."

"We are extremely pleased that TCC has placed its trust in Nokia and our ability to supply and deploy robust 3G systems," says Simon Beresford-Wylie, Senior Vice President, Nokia. "Becoming the sole 3G supplier is a significant deal with the leading operator in one of the world's premier telecom markets. We look forward to working even closer with TCC as it launches 3G service."

In addition to a complete WCDMA 3G system, including circuit and packet core equipment, Nokia is supplying a range of professional services to support the deployment. The networks will be managed using Nokia NetAct (TM), the only fully featured, multi-vendor, multi-technology operations support system (OSS) on a single platform.
