Nokia to supply Vodafone New Zealand 3G network
Vodafone has awarded Nokia a contract to be the supplier of WCDMA 3G network infrastructure to Vodafone Australia and Vodafone New Zealand. Under the agreement, Nokia will provide complete 3G core and radio networks, as well as offer full managed services for network operations. The agreement also allows an option for Vodafone to replace key network elements of Vodafone Australia's existing GSM and GPRS core network with Nokia switching equipment.

The company says deliveries will begin soon, with the launch of 3G services expected to take place in mid-2005.

In addition to the supply and deployment of network equipment, Nokia will provide network planning and optimization, implementation, and other services for fast ramp-up of the solution.

The main role of Nokia will be to partner Vodafone Australia and New Zealand in the establishment of 3G network infrastructure. In addition to the provision of infrastructure, Nokia is expected to have a key role in network planning, optimisation and operations. The partnership with Nokia is new for Australia and builds on the existing relationship in New Zealand where Vodafone is also out to tender for site acquisition and construction partners.

Nokia has been the sole GSM network vendor for Vodafone New Zealand, while Vodafone Australia is a new network customer for Nokia.
