Nokia Siemens Networks has announced that it has signed a contract with PT Hutchison CP Telecommunications (HCPT), or Hutchison Telecom Indonesia, to strengthen the latter's GSM/W-CDMA network coverage in the islands of Java and Sumatra, and roll out GSM core networks in Kalimantan and Sulawesi. This contract supplements HCPT's first network contract with Siemens Indonesia in 2005.

Nokia Siemens has built a GSM/W-CDMA radio, core and transmission network in the islands of Java and Sumatra for HCPT. Under the new contract, Nokia Siemens is commissioned to broaden HCPT's network coverage in both islands, including network planning and implementation of another 2,800 base stations, Release 4 mobile softswitch and Media Gateways. On the services front, Nokia Siemens will also continue with its project management role and provide network management services. To ensure seamless network configuration, Nokia Siemens is also appointed to install the core networks for HCPT in Kalimantan and Sulawesi.

"This expansion supports the momentum we have built up with the success of our service in addressing the needs of customers," Rajiv Sawhney, president director of HCPT. "We are confident that Nokia Siemens Networks' abilities in managing and deploying large-scale networks will enable us to rapidly expand our coverage and launch new services."

Nokia Siemens will start to deliver its solutions and services in April 2008 and will continue to work with HCPT to accommodate major expansion plans over the next 3 years across all the islands.
