Nortel Wins Shanghai Telecom

SHANGHAI -- Shanghai Telecom will use new metro networking technology from Nortel(x) (NYSE/TSX: NT) to provide high-bandwidth, business-critical voice, data and video applications to its customers in Shanghai, China's largest city and major economic center.

Nortel's Metro Ethernet Networking solution will position Shanghai Telecom to reliably and cost-effectively offer premium network services such as next-generation network voice services, Ethernet VPN-based business continuity services and potential IPTV services to its enterprise customers and individual end users.

"Our new Metro Ethernet portfolio takes a tried-and-true technology workhorse - Ethernet - to a new level," said Jackson Wu, president, Greater China, Nortel. "It enables service providers like Shanghai Telecom to use Ethernet to dependably deliver any kind of high-speed, high-bandwidth video and data service over the same infrastructure - and this is a key market differentiator for Nortel."

Shanghai Telecom will be deploying Nortel's high-performance Metro Ethernet Routing Switch 8600 at the network core. At the network edge, Nortel's Ethernet Services Unit 1800 will provide the delivery point for Ethernet-based services.
