Unmatched Leader in Global Carrier VoIP Market To Discuss Key Solutions That Boost Carrier Revenue and Subscriber Growth

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 9, 2010) - Nortel* (OTCBB:NRTLQ) Carrier VoIP and Application Solutions (CVAS) will be at the GSMA Mobile World Congress tradeshow and conference in Barcelona, Spain (February 15-18) to discuss how the company is helping service providers across the globe to deliver richer and simpler communications every day.

Nortel CVAS executives and subject matter experts will be in Hall 4, Level 5, Executive Suite 4.5HS04 to discuss the latest success, trends and solutions behind Nortel's carrier VoIP leadership: Hosted IP Communications for Large Enterprise and SMBs, Class 5 Modernization, IP Multimedia Interconnect, and 4G Mobile VoIP solutions. In addition, Samih Elhage, President, Nortel CVAS, and other CVAS executives will be present to provide an update on Nortel's CVAS divestiture process.

Nortel CVAS's ability to bring unprecedented gains in network deployment coverage, capacity and reliability to service provider networks has been well proven through its shipment of more than 121 million Carrier VoIP and Multimedia ports, including over 10 million SIP lines to leading wireline and wireless carriers globally. In addition, the company's recently-enhanced CS 2000 softswitch will continue to play a key role in maintaining the company's undisputed position as the #1 Global Carrier VoIP and Softswitch leader since 2002.

Mobile World Congress attendees will have an opportunity to learn more about Nortel's industry-leading Carrier VoIP innovations, such as:

  • 4G Mobile VoIP and Fixed-Mobile Convergence Solutions that enable seamless voice, video, and data access regardless of location or device. Nortel CVAS is implementing the first large scale 4G VoIP network involving voice continuity between mobile broadband VoIP and legacy cellular voice. In addition, Nortel has deployed VoIP solutions to encompass every mobile device deployed in the market and offers the capability to leverage laptop and mobile in parallel for call control and multimedia service enrichment. Nortel CVAS provides Carrier FMC solutions that fit any type of service provider -- wireless, fixed or MVNO.

  • Hosted IP Communications for Large Enterprise and SMBs that improve business productivity and allow service providers to offer advanced services across legacy TDM, hosted VoIP, PBX and mobile smartphone devices. Nortel CVAS provides carrier-hosted capabilities that help service providers to offer integrated communication applications including call center access, instant messaging, telephony, conferencing, video, web collaboration, file sharing and presence to business subscribers. With the Nortel CVAS Mobile Extension application, business users can leverage any legacy mobile terminal as a full office extension. Nortel CVAS has brought together one of the most comprehensive carrier managed service solutions for large enterprises delivering a scalable, survivable solution that is deployed in large networks today.

  • Class 5 VoIP Solutions that provide TDM network modernization, IP overlay, IMS applications and wireless convergence services for consumers. Nortel CVAS provides expertise and reliability in line migration, having migrated more than 36 Million lines from 13 different switch vendors. With Class 5 VoIP solutions carriers can realize significant savings and can generate additional revenues from new applications and web services. Nortel's recently announced hardware platform, called the CS 2000a, boosts service providers' capacity in a smaller footprint, and can provide up to a 70 percent reduction in footprint and a 50 percent power savings compared to currently available platform options. The CS 2000a also enables service providers to handle peak call periods more efficiently because it supports call capacity in excess of 5 million Busy Hour Call Attempts (BHCA).

  • IP Multimedia Interconnect Solutions that help service providers address IP media impairments that have become more prevalent in today's multi-access converged networks. The solutions equip Wireless, Wireline and Cable carriers to deliver communications across multiple IP networks and improve network quality, security and reliability. Interconnecting networks including LTE directly in IP without always going back to PSTN will provide cost savings and quality improvement. This includes Nortel's CVAS new Border Control Media Gateway1000 (BCMG 1000), an IP-to-IP session aware media gateway that leverages Nortel's industry-leading IPR and patents to increase service provider competitive advantage by improving voice quality and security.
