In a bid to enter into the Polish mobile telephony market, Cyfrowy Polsat has hired Nokia (News - Alert) as its core network supplier. The deal between Cyfrowy Polsat and Nokia is aimed at creating a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) environment.

"Having a strong technology partner is essential when entering a competitive market, such as telecommunications in Poland,” said Dominik Libicki, President, Cyfrowy Polsat S.A., in a statement.“Taking into account the rich implementation experience of the local Nokia team, we are convinced that we will manage to complete the project quickly and by the planned market entry date."
Cyfrowy Polsat is Poland's largest satellite platform in Poland with over 1,000,000 subscribers as well as hundreds of TV and radio channels in its portfolio. The platform offers new channels, high-tech set-top-boxes and additional services based on high-tech technologies. Cyfrowy Polsat was the first operator to offer regular HDTV broadcast.
Nokia will be using its mobile softswitch solution to help Cyfrowy achieve its mission. Thus, Nokia will be able to enhance its position as the leading supplier of telecommunications infrastructure in the Polish market.
"Nokia is excited to be working with such an innovative company as Cyfrowy Polsat. We believe our technology, as well as our service capabilities, will be a solid foundation for Cyfrowy Polsat to grow its business,” said Olof Henricsson, vice president for Central Europea, Networks, Nokia, in a statement. “We look forward to further co-operation with Cyfrowy Polsat as its business evolves."
