Nokia TETRA to Serve France's Largest Airports; More Than 3000 PMR Users at Paris Airports Will Soon Be Using the Nokia TETRA Platform.

Business Editors/High-Tech Writers

HELSINKI, Finland--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 8, 2004

Aeroports de Paris (ADP), which manages the largest air-traffic zone in Europe, has chosen Nokia to provide its digital TETRA professional mobile radio (PMR) system for ground services. ADP is responsible for an area that encompasses all the civil airports within a 50-kilometer radius of Paris, including the Charles de Gaulle, Orly, Roissy and le Bourget airports. The system is already operational, and the migration from the previous analogue system is progressing smoothly.

ADP Telecom, the ADP subsidiary that provides secure IT and telephony services for Paris airports, fully understands the needs of professional airport radio users for high reliability and security in radio communication. ADP Telecom's over 3000 PMR customers include public safety and security services, airlines, French public-administration agencies and several car rental companies.

"Security was one of the main reasons behind our choice of TETRA to replace the analogue radio communication system," says Joel Dumontet, Marketing Manager, ADP Telecom. "We also appreciated the Virtual Private Network solutions, the flight-specific application, and the ease of integration that Nokia's TETRA could offer".

ADP Telecom provides complete Virtual Private Network services to the organizations operating within the Aeroports de Paris area. With VPN, the organization has access to voice and messaging communications, and it can still maintain its privacy - not only are its communications secure, but the organization can also manage its own subscribers and groups.

"ADP's radio communication requirements are a challenge to any PMR system," says Olivier Sauquet, Marketing Manager, Networks, Nokia. "However, Nokia's TETRA is more than equal to this challenge. With the Nokia TETRA, the PMR users at Paris airports will benefit not only from the latest digital radio technology, but also from the wide variety of Nokia TETRA services. And all at the low cost that shared infrastructure brings".

Nokia is the world's leading supplier of TETRA networks and terminals and has demonstrated an unique capability to deliver multi-switch TETRA networks with the ability to provide all TETRA services uniformly countrywide. Special features include: top-class communication security, fast group calls, sophisticated emergency call functionality, prioritized calls, advanced messaging and data communication services, including packet data. The open interfaces of Nokia TETRA solutions enable seamless integration to command and control systems. Nokia continues investing in TETRA radio technology and systems for the benefit of present and future customers.

Notes to the editors

TETRA technology is a world standard published by ETSI for digital mobile trunking networks. TETRA networks offer secure, digital mobile communication for professional organizations such as oil and gas companies, utilities, the transportation and public safety and security sector (police, emergency, civil defence, security services, etc.). Data communication improves field operations by allowing users to access databases via their radios.

Most European countries have already chosen the open TETRA standard as the basis for their public-authority radio networks, as have a number of countries elsewhere in the world.

TETRA technology minimizes the capital investments and the operational expenses of organizations because it allows simultaneous and independent use of a single existing network by many services, administrations and ministries. TETRA enhances the safety of classified information by using encryption of the connection. It also increases the effectiveness and the coordination of different services and ministries in crises and natural disaster situations through connecting independent Virtual Private Networks into one communication environment.
