OTTAWA -- Nortel (NYSE:NT) (TSX:NT) has achieved another wireless technology milestone, demonstrating a significant increase in data throughput using beyond 3G (third generation) MIMO (multiple-input, multiple-output) and OFDM (orthogonal frequency division multiplexing).

The demonstration took place at Nortel's Wireless Technology Lab in Ottawa. Nortel will highlight its 3G MIMO and OFDM success and recent learnings from its lab at CTIA Wireless 2005 in New Orleans (Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, Hall C, Booth #3125) March 14-16.

MIMO and OFDM will make it possible for wireless subscribers to download bandwidth-hungry applications - large file transfers, streaming video and mobile gaming - at speeds higher than today's commercial 3G networks. Nortel has invested in advanced development of OFDM and MIMO for the past six years and has demonstrated the benefits and commercial feasibility of these technologies to more than 100 customers.

"Nortel is innovating beyond 3G to develop future wireless broadband technologies that will leverage existing service provider investments and enhance the subscriber experience through feature-rich services and multimedia applications," said John Hoadley, vice president, Next Generation Wireless Access, Carrier Networks, Nortel. "We believe that OFDM and MIMO will be vital to service provider success and will be the foundation of future wireless broadband networks."
