the Largest Mobile Telecom Operator in Indonesia

*** For immediate use November 29, 2011

Tokyo, November 29, 2011 - NEC Corporation (NEC; TSE: 6701) announced today the conclusion of a comprehensive three year supply agreement for PASOLINK, NEC's ultra-compact microwave communications system, with TELKOMSEL (Headquarters: Jakarta; CEO: Sarwoto Atmosutarno), Indonesia's largest mobile telecom operator. The PASOLINK system will mainly contribute to the expansion of TELKOMSEL'S suburban Internet infrastructure.

TELKOMSEL boasts approximately 105 million subscribers among a total population of roughly 240 million and the seventh biggest operator in the world in terms of subscriber base. In recent years, due to the rapid spread of the Internet in Indonesia, data traffic has greatly increased and the maintenance of network infrastructure has become an urgent matter for TELKOMSEL. PASOLINK addresses this issue while also supporting TELKOMSEL's efforts to optimize the efficiency of data traffic processing. More ever, since PASOLINK supports both TDM (*1) and full packet networks, TELKOMSEL can smoothly migrate to a packet network while utilizing its existing TDM infrastructure.

Takeshi Tsukamoto, President Director of P.T. NEC Indonesia says, "NEC offers TELKOMSEL a wide variety of communication products, including the PASOLINK microwave communications system and an optical fiber system. NEC's local subsidiary, P.T. NEC Indonesia, has a great deal of experience and know-how providing hardware, product customization, maintenance and support. NEC views this agreement as recognition of its exceptional technologies and local support structure."
