FRANKFURT, Germany -- German telecommunications provider T-Com, the fixed network division of Deutsche Telekom, has selected Nortel Networks (NYSE:NT)(TSX:NT) as one of its key suppliers for metro optical network equipment under an agreement announced today. The agreement calls for Nortel Networks to supply T-Com with products from Nortel Networks OPTera Metro 5000 Multiservice Platform series. OPTera Metro 5000 is designed to help deliver broadband information services to businesses, and to provide high-capacity telecommunications backbones over distances of up to a few hundred kilometres. The OPTera Metro 5000 series supports a wide range of services -- including storage networking, video, Gigabit Ethernet, and most other broadband network protocols -- through a technique called wavelength division multiplexing (WDM).

"One of the aims of our business in Europe has been to better penetrate the incumbent telecommunications provider market," said Steve Pusey, president, EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Africa), Nortel Networks. "This agreement with T-Com is further testament to our commitment to this market."
