[12 APR 99] MARCONI COMMUNICATIONS PRESS RELEASE
Marconi Wins 100m Orders For Romanian MoD

The Romanian Ministry of Defence has placed orders worth more than 100 million with Marconi Communications for a new, integrated military communications system to be used throughout its army, navy and air forces.

The latest order, for 82 million, is for the second phase of a project, started in 1995, which will provide the Romanian armed forces with their first fully interoperable telecommunications network, using the latest automated digital technology from Marconi.

The system comprises a national backbone infrastructure of 400 fixed and transportable radio communications centres, which is scheduled for completion in 2002.

Marconi is supplying transmission elements, digital switches and multiplexers, network management capabilities and application software, which will be the standard for future development of the system in the next century. A proportion of the switching and multiplexer equipment will be built in Romania under a technology licencing agreement between the Ministry of Defence and Marconi.

Marconi Communications military manager Silvono Poggi said: "The orders so far received represent the first two phases in a continuing development of Romania's tri-services communications capabilities. This is an extremely important contract for us, in which we have succeeded against fierce international competition."

The radio communications technology on which the Romanian system is based is already used by military forces in Italy, Canada, Denmark, Greece, France, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Spain, Turkey, Malaysia, Bulgaria and Brazil.

Marconi Communications is a world leader in smart broadband transmission and network integration. Based in the UK and Italy, it has sales to more than 140 countries and is wholly owned by GEC, a global manufacturer of intelligent electronic systems.
