China chooses Nokia Siemens Networks

The Chinese Ministry of Railways, the China Railway Signaling and Communication Corp. have chosen Nokia Siemens Networks to provide GSM-railway network for a planned passenger line between Wuhan and Guangzhou.

The company did not disclose financial terms.

Nokia Siemens Networks, a joint venture between Nokia Corp. and Siemens AG, said it will supply base stations, a core network and an advanced high-speed railway tunnel communication service.

The project in southern China is scheduled for completion by the end of 2009. The contract was initially signed by Siemens Communications, the company said.

The Wuhan-Guangzhou line will be 968 kilometers (601.5 miles) in length.
