Nortel has won a Nortel 1xEV DO Rev A network expansion contract from PEOPLEnet in Ukraine. PEOPLEnet's expanded network will cover the central eastern and southern Ukraine.
PEOPLEnet's Ukraine network is Nortel's first 1x EV-DO Rev A with Mobile Switching Center contract win in Eastern Europe. The solution comprises Nortel's CDMA Base Transceiver Stations (BTS) 3030; CDMA Enhanced Base Station Controllers; Packet Mobile Switching Center; a Media Gateway 15000; and 1xEV-DO Rev A technology.
The first shipment of infrastructure equipment has already been delivered to the Ukraine.
PEOPLEnet is going to attract sizeable investment in 2007, which will enable the operator to expand its services in all regional centers across the Ukraine and to provide 80 per cent of the Ukrainian population with 3G services by the end of 2008.
