NOKIA TO SUPPLY GPRS CORE NETWORK TO AUSSIE OPTUS.

The Nokia GPRS core network solution will be integrated into Cable & Wireless Optus' existing GSM 900 and 1800 network allowing the rollout of packet-based mobile internet services to Cable & Wireless Optus subscribers across Australia.

Cable & Wireless Optus will be amongst the first carriers in the world to have a commercial grade SMG31 compatible network.

The greatest advantage of GPRS for mobile subscribers lies in the possibility to have continuous connectivity to the internet, the corporate intranet or a WAP portal, for fast mobile access to new content-rich services.

Nokia is at the forefront of development and implementation of GPRS infrastructure for mobile operators. The Nokia GPRS solution includes the industry's strongest and most efficient core GPRS system and Connecting@Care support services including applications consultancy and systems integration expertise to integrate the GPRS core network into the existing service delivery and billing environment.

Since August 1999, Nokia has delivered and implemented GPRS networks to almost 50 carriers worldwide including leading operators in Europe, USA, Asia and China, and now has the largest installed base of any supplier.

SMG31 is the first specification that fully meets the GSM Release 97 standard enabling the GPRS network to be fully capable of supporting commercial packet data services, unlike existing pre-commercial pilot systems.
