Nortel to expand Russian cellco across Siberia

5 Sep 2003

Small fry, but not insignificant, Russian wireless operator BaykalWestcom has extended an existing wireless data network supply agreement with Nortel Networks for expansion across parts of Siberia. Nortel, the sole supplier to BaykalWestcom, will provide the cellco with equipment and services, increasing its GSM and GPRS network capacity to 180,000. Deployment will begin later this month and is scheduled for completion by year end.
