HELSINKI -- Nordisk Mobiltelefon and Nortel Networks (NYSE:NT)(TSX:NT) are presenting a live demonstration of the broadband mobile technology CDMA 450 in Tampere, Finland today. The trial system, implemented with Digita Oy, the Finnish TV and radio mast operator, brings the prospect of improved geographical reach for advanced mobile services in Nordic countries at data rates up to 2.45 megabits per second.

CDMA 450 systems offer basic speech and data transfer services, as well as SMS (Short Message Service), MMS (Multimedia Message Service), e-mail, WAP (Wireless Application Protocol) and Web browsing. But CDMA 450 can provide greater geographical coverage from less base stations because it operates in the lower 450 megahertz (MHz) radio frequency.

"Our founding vision was to provide consumers and professionals in rural areas with advanced digital mobile communications services," said Arnfinn Roste, chief executive officer, Nordisk Mobiltelefon. "Today we are demonstrating that this vision can become a reality, providing both mobile telephony and broadband access across the Nordic region."

"Today's activity is a demonstration of Nortel Networks CDMA 450, CDMA2000 1X and 1xEV-DO capability and an illustration of the benefits it could bring to rural areas in the Nordics," said Jorma Laasasenaho, general manager, Nortel Networks Finland. "By introducing CDMA 450 to the region we hope to powerfully illustrate the value that this internationally established standard deployed in networks around the world can bring."
