Nortel touts converged kit

At Gitex this year, Nortel will be demonstrating how the telecoms environment of the future combines the intuitive ease of voice communications with the information-sharing capabilities of PCs and other data devices. As such, the Nortel stand will play host to some of the latest solutions that bring fixed mobile convergence by integrating disparate services such as telephony, VPNs, instant messaging, video, collaboration, and other applications in a seamless, cure and reliable environment.

At Gitex this year, Nortel will be demonstrating how the telecoms environment of the future combines the intuitive ease of voice communications with the information-sharing capabilities of PCs and other data devices. As such, the Nortel stand will play host to some of the latest solutions that bring fixed mobile convergence by integrating disparate services such as telephony, VPNs, instant messaging, video, collaboration, and other applications in a seamless, cure and reliable environment.

The vendor believes the modern work environment in this region is no longer ‘business as usual’. Instead, Nortel argues that companies and public sector organisations are now realising that the business environment requires investment in a secure mobility infrastructure. Such an investment is forecast to reduce costs, increase productivity, enhance processes and relationships, and help corporations gain a competitive advantage.

“The implications of a converged network can no longer be ignored. Converged applications and mobility solutions are granting employees customised control over when, where, and how they can be reached, no matter where they are or how they access the network — ultimately eliminating the communications barriers that inhibit business flow,” says Ramin Attari, vice president for the Middle East, Nortel Networks.

“Converged multimedia applications are blending customer service agents and web capabilities with voice communications,” he adds.

Attari says visitors to Gitex this year can expect to see hands-on demonstrations of Nortel’s broad range of convergence solutions that help organisations in different vertical sectors, including hospitality, healthcare, education and finance. The Nortel stand will showcase new enterprise voice applications, such as the recently launched Nortel Applications Centre, which brings together contact centre, unified messaging and multimedia collaboration into one environment.

Visitors will also be able to receive hands-on demonstrations on Nortel’s Multimedia Communication Server (MCS) application, which enables businesses to augment existing voice and data infrastructures with advanced IP-based capabilities, such as multimedia, collaboration, personalisation, and instant messaging. Nortel will also showcase its data networking solutions for both the carrier and enterprise markets, with a dedicated mobility pod with Wireless Mesh and Wireless Local Area Network (LAN) solutions. A specific area of the stand will also demonstrate solutions that address the infrastructure security.
