[05 MAY 99] MARCONI COMMUNICATIONS PRESS RELEASE
Marconi In US$10m China Project

The Marconi Communications' joint venture company, Shanghai GPT, has been awarded a series of new contracts by the Chinese Ministry of Railways (MOR), as part of a programme of works called 'The Sixth Railway Project'.

Backed by the World Bank, the US$10 million project involves dozens of initiatives to create modern, high-speed networks which will improve communications across the national rail system.

The new orders, comprising three contracts for Marconi's Coventry-built world-leading SDH (synchronous digital hierarchy) transmission equipment and EM-OS management systems, are in addition to a first contract awarded by the MOR in December - and hailed by Marconi as a milestone in its fast-growing relationship with China.

Shanghai GPT is supplying the ministry with products for all of the contracts, sourced from both the Marconi factory in Coventry and its Shanghai factory.

This comes less than a month after the company announced an order for SDH equipment from Dalian UNICOM, the Chinese network operator serving the country's second biggest port of Dalian to enhance the capacity of its mobile phone network.

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

NOTES

Shanghai GPT was set up in 1996 between Marconi Communications and the Shanghai Railway Communications Equipment Factory (SRC), the state-owned manufacturer of telecoms equipment.
