Nokia and Taiwan Cellular Corp. (TCC) today signed an agreement for Nokia to be supplier of TCC's 3G network in Taiwan. The agreement represents another major milestone in Nokia's goal to expand its share of the WCDMA market to 35%.

Deliveries are slated to begin in first quarter 2003 with Nokia providing both 3G core and radio-access network equipment for the roll-out and introduction of TCC's nationwide WCDMA network.

The Nokia WCDMA 3G solution will enable the nearly 8 million mobile subscribers of the privately held Telecom Group to enjoy advanced multimedia mobile services, such as multimedia messaging, mobile entertainment, mobile location services, corporate services, and m-commerce.

Nokia has been working with TCC since early 2001, having supplied the operator's whole GPRS solution.

"3G is a cornerstone of advanced mobile services, and currently 34 operators worldwide have chosen Nokia's WCDMA solution. TCC is now joining these forward-looking service providers who see WCDMA as the best evolutionary path to true multimedia services," said Mikko Heikkonen, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Nokia Networks.
