[29 JUL 99] MARCONI COMMUNICATIONS PRESS RELEASE
Latvian Win Leads To Baltic Expansion For Marconi Coventry

Latvian national telecommunications operator, Lattelekom, has ordered the world's most advanced telecommunications system from Marconi Communications.

The contract, to supply the Coventry-built networking technology along with full local support, will enable it to carry greater volumes of call traffic.

To support this order and the rapid growth of the Baltic telecommunications market, Marconi have now opened a new sales and marketing office in Latvia's capital, Riga. The Baltic Regional office will support the company's marketing activities in Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia.

Kamal Mokrani, Coventry-based Marconi Communication's regional sales manager, said:

"Marconi is a market leader in Central and Eastern Europe with an 80 million track record in telecoms infrastructure sales over the last three years. Lattelekom's order for the highest level of SDH transmission is an indication of the region's ambition to establish a world beating telecoms infrastructure and its confidence in Marconi to deliver it."

Lattelekom was established in 1994 after an international bid for tenders that was organised, financed and supervised by the European Union through its Phare programme.

Following the Lattelekom Umbrella Agreement under which 49% of the company's shares were acquired by Tilts Communications, the company committed to a three year infrastructure upgrade programme with Marconi to enhance service delivery to the country's 2.5 million population and rapidly growing business community.

The order will enhance Lattelekom's advanced telecommunications backbone network and provide the capacity to meet the country's growing demand for data services, including the Internet.

Marconi Communications is a wholly owned subsidiary of GEC, a world leader in smart broadband optical networks, access equipment, switching technology for the Internet and network integration. GEC's recent acquisition of US-based FORE Systems has positioned the company to be a leading player in the new public network and enterprise markets in addition to its established market leadership in the carrier and operators sphere. It has sales to more than 140 countries, a major presence in Europe, the USA, Africa and the Asia-Pacific Region.
