Press Release

* Project part of modernization of line connecting Wonju and Gangneung in
preparation for Korea hosting a major international sporting event in 2018
* KRNA to deploy LTE-R technology for modernization of communications network
supporting mission-critical services, such as signaling at speeds of up to
250 km/h

14 November, 2016

Espoo, Finland - Nokia has been selected by the
Korea Rail Network Authority (KRNA)as a supplier for the world's first LTE-R
mobile broadband network to support
railway operations and employee services. The network will be deployed on a
railway line between Wonju and Gangneung as part of preparations for the
major international sporting event being hosted by the country in 2018. KRNA
is responsible for the development and maintenance of railway infrastructure
in South Korea as well as a number of other countries.

The communications network for KRNA will be based on LTE-R technology, a
version of 4G LTE technology that is being developed to meet the
mission-critical service requirements of railway operators. The network will
support both operational and maintenance services on a high-speed commercial
railway line operating at speeds of up to 250 km/h.

KRNA's LTE-R network will provide secure, reliable, high-speed connectivity
between trains, stations and other railway facilities between Wonju and
Gangneung. The network will also be designed to interoperate with other LTE
networks supporting public safety and maritime operations as well as legacy
VHS (very high frequency) and TRS (trunked radio system) radio networks. This
project is intended to serve as a model for future LTE-R deployments, and
help further define LTE-R standardization efforts.

For this project, Nokia will supply radio access network (RAN) base stations
(eNodeBs) along with Nokia NetAct(TM), the first major virtualized network
management software for mobile networks. NetAct delivers best-in-class
applications for the railway operations and employee services management of
KRNA. It also delivers advanced assurance capabilities as part of Nokia's
comprehensive, multi-domain Service Assurance program, which provides
closed-loop automation to drive greater network agility and optimization.
Nokiasystems integrationand deployment services will help to establish the
new LTE-R network.

Andrew Cope, head of Korea at Nokia, said:
"South Korea has been a world leader in the use of mobile broadband technology
to make public services of all kinds safer, more efficient and reliable. With
a thirty-year history in the delivery of GSM-R mobile networking technology
for railways, and as a pioneer in the development of LTE-R solutions, we are
pleased to partner with KRNA to bring these cutting edge capabilities to the
country as they prepare to host one of the world's premier sporting events."
