SINGAPORE (April 24): Nera Telecommunciations (Neratel) has received contracts of approximately $7.15 million in aggregate in relation to the supply, delivery, installation and maintenance of security application equipment to a telecom operator in the Philippines.

“We are also seeing a renewed focus for network security solutions in other business sectors, and this will present further opportunities for us to grow our network security business,” he adds.

Shares of Neratel closed 1 cent lower at 39 cents.
