LAS VEGAS -- Nortel(x) (NYSE/TSX: NT) today announced IMS portfolio enhancements designed to make it simpler for service providers to offer personalized multimedia services to virtually any device across any network - wireless, wireline or cable.

"In the same way the telephone changed how people communicated over distance and the Internet ushered in a new era of information exchange, IMS is expected to take networked communications to a new level of simplicity for users and provide greater profit potential for service providers," said Alan Stoddard, general manager, Carrier Multimedia Networks, Nortel. "IMS will enable intuitive networks that are subscriber-centric and access-aware; it is expected to put the power of the network in the hands of the subscriber and integrate multiple applications into a single, personalized experience. It is designed to allow users to move more seamlessly and securely between various networks with ease."

As part of the company's IMS portfolio enhancements, Nortel is introducing the Wireless Mobility Gateway 6000 (WMG 6000), a key component of its IMS Converged Mobility solution. Compliant to the emerging IMS Voice Call Continuity (VCC) standards, the WMG 6000 is designed to allow service providers to bridge 3G wireless networks and WLAN networks to provide a more seamless and secure communication experience for consumers and enterprise users. The IMS Converged Mobility solution provides added presence and advanced telephony features such as caller ID, call waiting, call hold, click to call, call screening and routing, SMS and IM interworking.

Nortel's IMS Converged Mobility solution builds on Nortel's experience across SIP multimedia, VoIP and wireless. It helps service providers to deliver more highly-reliable and secure communications seamlessly across all networks while maintaining a truly personalized experience for such IMS-based services as video calling, video conferencing, instant messaging and multimedia - all from one device and one phone number. It also is designed to make it possible for service providers to manage subscriber information across multiple access networks more effectively, resulting in one consolidated bill for subscribers.
