Nokia has been selected as supplier of WCDMA 3G network equipment for Sonofon in Denmark. With Nokia's radio access network, Sonofon will be able to rapidly offer new 3G mobile services to its customers in Denmark this year.

Under the terms of the agreement, Nokia supplies a WCDMA 3G radio access network to Sonofon. The contract follows on a new frame agreement signed by Nokia and Telenor, Nordic, covering Telenor Nordic's affiliates: Telenor Mobile and Sonofon, both operating in the Nordic region.

WCDMA technology is a cost effective way to upgrade network infrastructure leading to increased network capacity that supports offering advanced mobile multimedia services. Nokia has a strong global position as a radio network provider with 58 WCDMA 3G references to date.

"There is growing demand for high quality connections and richer, more advanced 3G mobile services," said Oddbjrn Schei, Vicepresident Nordic in Telenor. "We are confident that Nokia's network infrastructure will allow us to efficiently enhance our product offering to meet the needs of our customers."

Telenor has already launched 3G services in Norway. Drawing on these experiences and strong group competence, Sonofon is now able to deploy 3G services rapidly in the Danish market.

"We are very pleased to have been selected as the supplier for the 3G radio network to Sonofon's roll-out in Denmark, as well as with the new frame agreement that emphasizes and brings further the long term cooperation between Nokia and Telenor in the Nordic region," said Finn Erik Hermansen, General Manager, Networks, Nokia.
