NEC to Establish Technical Excellence Centre
for Broadband & Wireless Networks in Italy ~NEC Signs Global Partnership Agreement with Telecom Italia~


***For immediate use September 12, 2008

Tokyo, September 12, 2008 - NEC Corporation announced today that it has agreed with Telecom Italia to cooperate on mutual development of global business, technologies and network improvement. The Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) reached between the two companies includes details on how the partnership may enable the Telecom Italia Group to capitalize on NEC’s leading broadband & wireless network technologies to provide consumers with the latest advanced services.

The MOU also outlines how NEC, as a strategic partner of Telecom Italia, will conduct demonstrations, interoperability testing, roadmap development and product optimization of broadband & wireless technologies and solutions at NEC’s Technical Excellence Centre to be established in Italy. The centre will provide valuable information on such technologies as WiMAX, Femtocell, FTTx, Microwave PDH/SDH radio systems and LTE, which may directly benefit Telecom Italia, its domestic affiliates and partners throughout the world. The centre will also underscore NEC’s close relationship with Telecom Italia and each company’s ongoing efforts to drive the development of modern networks. Furthermore, NEC will be able to demonstrate its service platform and NGN capabilities that have been cultivated in the Japanese market.

In welcoming the new agreement, Botaro Hirosaki, Senior Executive Vice President and Member of the Board said, “The establishment of a technical excellence centre in Italy will play a key role towards NEC strengthening its position in the development of carrier business in Italy, Europe and worldwide.”

Also included among the collaboration’s benefits are the access Telecom Italia gains to present and future next generation service developments at NEC, and the Excellence Centre’s delivery of cutting-edge information on technologies and solutions that will serve the customers in Italian, European and global markets alike.
