    Barcelona, Spain (ots/PRNewswire) - Nortel(x) (NYSE: NT ; SX: NT) plans to showcase the delivery of an  outstanding mobile broadband experience at the 3GSM World Congress 2006,  February 13-16 in Barcelona.

    The company intends to demonstrate current and future wireless capabilities across three main areas: mobile broadband evolution, the power of convergence and interactive mobile TV at its public and private booth space A06, Hall 8, Fira Convention Center.

    "Nortel's goal is to make the current path and long term evolution to true wireless broadband as simple as possible for wireless service providers," said Peter MacKinnon, president of GSM and UMTS networks, Nortel. "Today, Nortel is delivering commercial HSDPA networks designed to enable their operators to efficiently drive down costs and simplify the delivery of converged services."

    "We're preparing for the future by integrating new technologies, including MIMO and OFDM, into all our wireless solutions to enable the evolution to ultra broadband wireless," MacKinnon said.

    Leading Mobile Broadband Evolution

    As wireless service providers compete to meet subscriber demand for faster, higher bandwidth mobile services, next generation technologies are essential to boosting network capabilities. At 3GSM, Nortel intends to demonstrate:

    - Live, commercial HSDPA services at speeds of up to 3.6 Mbps per second.

    - UMTS and HSDPA services in the 900 MHz band, for the improved delivery of broadband services to rural areas and in-building penetration as showcased with Orange and Qualcomm.

    - A repeat of the industry's first simultaneous HSUPA and HSDPA calls, announced February 7, 2006.

    - A vision for the long term evolution of broadband mobility solutions with MIMO and OFDM as the underlying technology across UMTS, CDMA and WiMAX.

    Driving Network Convergence

    Consistent, secure, optimized communications with no interruption in the subscriber experience across multiple access types - GPRS, EDGE, UMTS, HSDPA Wifi, WiMAX - is the end goal of IMS Converged Mobility service and global convergence in the network core.

    Nortel will debut its innovative wireless services edge platform the Nortel MPE 9500 GGSN http://www.nortel.com/solutions/wireless/collateral/nn114320.pdf that provides wireless network integration to IPv6 and MPLS evolved packet cores. The platform will lay the foundation for services 'beyond 3G' and capabilities including all releases of UMTS, HSDPA and IMS, equipping operators with common session management, policy control and real-time integrated billing.

    Other planned demonstrations include next-generation voice core, packet core and advanced IMS applications and platforms, http://products.nortel.com/go/product_content.jsp?segId(equal sign)0&parId( equal sign)0&prod_id(equal sign)52540&locale(equal sign)en-US security solutions including content filtering, virus blocking and peer to peer traffic control, as well as a converged wireless network manager for easy integration and efficient operation.
