Nortel Helps Golden

MOSCOW -- Nortel(*) (NYSE/TSX:NT) is providing Golden Telecom, a leading Russian operator of integrated telecommunications services, with a solution for launching a mobile WiMAX field trial in Moscow based on Nortel 4G technology.

The Moscow trial is one of the steps in Golden Telecom's strategy aimed at satisfying the growing demand from private and corporate customers in Russia for anywhere, anytime Internet access and fast mobile communications services such as VoIP, email and multimedia applications.

"Mobile WiMAX is at the forefront of next-generation mobility," said Sorin Lupu, president Eastern Europe, Nortel. "Advanced OFDM-MIMO will be the foundation for all future wireless technologies and - in a short number of years - I'm sure we'll find that all computers, PDAs and other mobile consumer devices will be wireless-enabled. In the short term, Golden Telecom's mobile WiMAX trial is a significant step towards providing Moscow's citizens with 'always on' communications available when and where they want them, through whatever device. And, in the longer term the experience from the Moscow trial and implementation can be used to speed delivery of mobile WiMAX into other cities where Golden Telecom has a presence."
