Nortel Unwires Bell Centre

MONTREAL -- Spectators to Montreal Canadiens' hockey games at the Bell Centre will spend less time in line-ups and more time cheering on their favorite team once the entertainment complex goes wireless with a secure wireless network from Nortel(*) (NYSE/TSX: NT). Quick admittance, faster transactions processing at concession stands and more flexible payment options are only some of the ways the Bell Centre will take customer service to the next level.

The Bell Centre, which seats up to 21,273 spectators, will be equipped with a secure and reliable, wireless high-speed network to deliver next-generation multimedia applications, including VoIP, secure wireless access anywhere within the facility and remote access for staff when off-site.

"The Bell Centre is the most important sports and entertainment venue in the province of Quebec, and Nortel is honored to provide a wireless solution that enables the Bell Centre to deliver champion service to its guests," said Steve Slattery, president, Enterprise Solutions, Nortel. "In teaming with the Montreal Canadiens, Nortel is able to provide a customized service that will achieve greater efficiencies for staff and player personnel and provide a new dimension to the spectator experience."
