Finland’s Nokia is supplying the core network of the new second operator Emirates Integrated Telecommunications Company (du) and a large part of its radio network under a $190 million contract. The two companies announced on 7 March that installation of the network had begun and will be implemented on a turnkey basis. Roll-out of the GSM/GPRS and 3G network is expected to take four-six months. Nokia will also operate the network under a one-year service contract.
