NEC Corporation announced that it has signed a global frame agreement with Telenor, a Norway-based worldwide telecommunications operator, to provide microwave communications systems.

This agreement will apply to the Telenor Group's 13 telecommunications affiliates in Northern Europe, Eastern Europe and Asia. Through this agreement, NEC will provide total support from the introduction of NEC's ultra-compact microwave communications systems, iPASOLINK VR and iPASOLINK EX Advanced, to maintenance services over the next five years.

NEC is first scheduled to provide iPASOLINK to Telenor Pakistan, then to expand the supply of its products to telecommunications affiliates in other areas.

NEC and Telenor have been working together since the 1980s, and the companies have signed several global frame agreements on microwave communications systems since 2006.

NEC claims that it has the largest share in cumulative shipments for microwave communications systems for Telenor. Moreover, in 2015, NEC and Telenor signed a global frame agreement on IP routers and optical communications systems.

Atsuo Kawamura, EVP, NEC Corporation
With NEC's iPASOLINK, Telenor can enhance network connectivity, enabling their customers to experience better, high-quality services. NEC will continue to provide advanced solutions to Telenor, including microwave equipment, IP routers and optical communications systems, so that we can contribute to the diversification and sophistication of their communication services.
