Nokia: signs high-bandwidth deal with US utility.

(CercleFinance.com) - Nokia has been selected by Kansas City Power & Light to supply a communications network to upgrade the US utility's power grid, the Finnish telecoms equipment maker said on Thursday evening.

The company will provide its microwave packet radio portfolio to support high-bandwidth services such as video, as well as existing data traffic, on a single network.

The current deployment, covering 40 sites, is set to be completed by the end of 2017. A second phase, consisting of 29 additional sites, will follow shortly afterwards.

The deal is covered by a 10-year agreement to enable network expansions and upgrades, Nokia said.

KCP&L has over 800,000 customers in northeast Missouri and eastern Kansas.
