Nortel Wins Shanghai Telecom
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.
