Nortel wins Pakistan wireless deal

Nortel Networks announced Monday that it signed a $60 million deal to expand Ufone's wireless network in Pakistan. Ufone serves 15 cities and operates on the GSM (Global System for Mobile Communication) standard at 900 megahertz. The expansion will increase the network's capacity to 370,000 subscribers and add GPRS, or General Packet Radio Service, to the network, a wireless data technology that will provide Ufone's customers with Internet access, e-commerce and VPN (virtual private network) service options. The deal builds on a $50 million agreement Nortel signed in January 2001 with Ufone, which operates through Pak Telecom Mobile, a fully owned subsidiary of Pakistan Telecommunications.
