Nortel Shows How Carriers Can Deliver Better, Faster Networks to Reach True Mobile Broadband
Nortel will demonstrate its mobile convergence and 4G mobile broadband technologies — LTE (News - Alert) and WiMAX —at CTIA Wireless (News - Alert) 2008, according to the company.
With billions of people getting connected, and more joining the each day, Nortel is transforming the challenges of Hyperconnectivity into opportunities for its carrier customers, says Scott Wickware (News - Alert), vice president, Carrier Networks, Nortel.
“Nortel has all the technology elements needed to power up solutions for the 4G world - innovation in WiMAX and LTE, a strong ecosystem of devices and applications, all-IP core solutions and a deep understanding of how carriers can deliver what consumer and business users are expecting from their wireless experience,” said Wickware.
Nortel believes that this delivers better, faster wireless networks that simplify work, study and even play for today's "always connected" consumers.
”The hyperconnected consumer wants seamless communication - anytime, anywhere and on any device - and they want it at an affordable price, while the hyperconnected business user wants the ability to leverage their mobile phone as an office extension. Nortel is focused on technology innovations that transform today's networks,” said Wickware.
Nortel will demonstrate the range of technologies its customers can use to easily bring mobile convergence and 4G mobile broadband to their customers, at its CTIA Wireless booth. Using Nortel's all-IP core and end-to-end WiMAX (News - Alert) solutions, carriers can also evolve to 4G, enhancing today's networks with simple upgrades to GSM Evolved Edge or CDMA Rev A that support services like VoIP and push to talk/see, while laying a foundation for implementing 4G. It's all about options. By providing a range of converged network solutions, Nortel makes services like high-definition (HD) video streaming and interactive Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) -based web applications both profitable for carriers and affordable for users.
We're doing this through higher speeds with LTE and WiMAX, better applications with all-IP solutions and most importantly, we're doing all this while keeping networks simple and costs down,” said Wickware.
