Finnish telecomms solutions provider Nokia said on Monday (14 November) that it had supported Optus' 3G services launch in Australia, providing the behind-the-scenes network infrastructure and turnkey services as well as assisting Optus to develop 3G consumer applications. The shared network is the first in the world to feature Nokia's Multi-Operator Radio Access Network (MO-RAN) technology, which allows for the easy sharing of radio services, according to Nokia. In addition, Optus and Nokia have worked with Australian developer Bullant to bring to market a 3G content personalisation application called 'MyZooNow' which would run as the active handset user interface on a range of mobile phones including the Nokia N70 and Nokia 6680. Optus MyZooNow features a homepage that pushes information to customers that is relevant to their interests, work and social needs, such as news and weather, music and lifestyle.
