TORONTO -- Nortel(1) (Toronto:NT.TO - News)(Other OTC:NRTLQ.PK - News) today introduced the Virtual Services Platform (VSP) 9000 - the next-generation enterprise solution for mission-critical core networks and data centers. The new platform helps companies realize the benefits of emerging virtualization technologies that require unparalleled reliability and flexibility, while providing over twice the performance compared to the primary competition.(2)

The VSP 9000 enables simplified network virtualization, positions companies to reduce capital and operating expenses, and provides a more energy efficient network solution that can deliver further savings from lower power usage. It is also designed to be future-proof by providing an architecture designed for technical longevity well beyond the typical lifespan of current solutions.

VSP 9000 also delivers carrier-grade reliability to ensure uninterrupted business services based on its ability to repair communication paths in milliseconds, a fraction of the time it takes for competitive solutions to recover. This represents unprecedented fail-over capabilities that are an improvement over Nortel's existing lead that are third-party proven to provide at least seven times the resiliency(3) over competitive solutions.

Aftenposten is the largest newspaper in Norway and its IT department also provides network operations for nearly 30 other companies of all sizes, including five of the top fifteen internet sites in Norway, and the largest internet classifieds site in the Nordics. "Cost, as measured in total cost of ownership, is a critical driver. As a large company with international operations, our customers depend on us and any network downtime is completely unacceptable. Our assessment of Nortel's VSP 9000 shows it provides flexibility, simplicity of operation, security and incredible performance," said Tor Fleime, Manager Aftenposten IT. "The solution promises enhanced scalability and carrier grade reliability to meet our increasing needs and future expectations."
