MWC 2009: Nortel Networks Booth Tour

Having put the Nokia Networks booth team through its paces at Mobile World Congress, our Barcelona stand tour tag team of one editor and one photographer turned its attentions to Nortel Networks Ltd. . (See MWC 2009: Nokia Siemens Booth Tour.)

Here's a quick reminder of what we were doing: We visited the stands of five mobile infrastructure vendors -- Nokia Siemens, Nortel, Alcatel-Lucent (NYSE: ALU), Ericsson AB (Nasdaq: ERIC), and Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. -- and, with plenty of advance warning, gave them each 20 minutes to pitch their most interesting and exciting developments, technologies, and strategies. Anything, in fact, that those companies thought would be of most interest to a carrier executive visitor to the Mobile World Congress show floor.

The results were variable, in terms of content, presentation, and logistics.

So what about Nortel? Nortel covered all the bases you'd expect -- LTE capabilities and enterprise applications were to the fore -- and provided us with a fun photo opportunity behind the scenes. (See Nortel Keeps LTE Dream Alive.)

So, without any further ado, let the tour begin...

re: MWC 2009: Nortel Networks Booth Tour Aw, give him a break. Like all of Nortel, he's trying to put his best face forward.

Foot. That should have been best foot forward. Some editor.

Please. A fine journalist as yourself should know how to conjugate twitter: tweet, twat, has been twatted.

And of course, users are twits.
You're welcome.

re: MWC 2009: Nortel Networks Booth Tour Jim is a good guy. With all of the chatter about the fate of NT, never mind the fate of NT LTE work with the loss of the Vz business, it has to be hard to do the Vanna White gig. I was being sincere. Good for him for putting on a good face...er foot... ;o)

re: MWC 2009: Nortel Networks Booth Tour We should change the header to "Nortel Net Works?!... Or, "Nortel Boot Tour"...
