Red Rock Casino, Resort and Spa Guests Win Big With Nortel Convergence Solutions and Sprint's New Local Company

Geschrieben am 02-05-2006

Las Vegas, Nevada (ots/PRNewswire) -

- Indulges Guests With Premium, On-Demand Fine Dining, Gaming and
Entertainment Services

Station Casinos, Inc., one of the leading gaming corporations in
the U.S., is delivering the ultimate in-room communications
experience for guests at its new Red Rock Casino, Resort and Spa
through converged IP solutions from Nortel(x) (NYSE: NT; TSX: NT)
and its channel partner Sprint. Guests of the newly opened, billion
dollar resort in Las Vegas have access to personalized, on-demand
services using colour touch screens of Nortel IP phones located in
each room. Nortel converged communications solutions deliver
advanced IP telephony and multimedia applications to in-room Nortel
touch screen phones to let Red Rock guests take full advantage of the
resort's fine dining, gaming and entertainment services. Guests can
easily make dinner reservations at many of the resort's nine
restaurants, schedule a massage at the 25,000 square-feet Spa at Red
Rock or connect with the hotel's concierge to plan adventure
activities such as rock climbing or white water rafting - all
through interactive in-room communications using Nortel IP phones.

"We created an IP network for Red Rock that delivers premium
personalized communication services and allows the resort to expand
its service offerings, improve guest loyalty and ultimately bolster
profitability," said Alex Pierson, general manager, Enterprise and
Small-Medium Business Communication Systems, Nortel. "Sprint's new
local company is very excited to power Red Rock Station with Nortel
equipment," said Sprint's vice president of Business Sales, Richard
Twilley. "With the latest content, interactive features and
programming, guests will be able to experience communications in an
entirely new way." The IP network from Nortel also allows Red Rock
to streamline administrative functions to heighten staff
productivity and deliver the highest levels of guest experience from
check-in through check-out. For example, quick access to room status
information is critical in reducing waiting times for guests on
checking in or for determining whether a room can be sold, if it
needs maintenance or additional cleaning. These efficiencies allow
Red Rock management to allocate staff resources quickly to where they
are needed most.

The new Nortel network also reduces staff operator time by
automating such guest services as wake-up calls or answering routine
questions regarding area attractions, hotel events or airport
shuttles. In addition, the system will provide 18 language options
to accommodate guests from around the world. Station Casinos is also
using Nortel IP solutions in the new 94,000 square-feet of meeting
and convention space located on the Red Rock property and also plans
to use Nortel IP solutions to converge voice and data networks at
its new corporate headquarters. Nortel's voice solutions are
currently being used at 6 Station Casino properties across the
United States, with Red Rock being the first location to deploy
advanced featured IP devices in the room to enhance the guest
experience. This deployment is based on Nortel's highly reliable data
networking technology that provides guests with a superior quality of
experience for voice and multimedia services. The Red Rock deployment
includes Nortel's IP telephony flagship Communication Server 1000 in
conjunction with Nortel's CallPilot for unified messaging and the
color touch screen Nortel IP Phone 2007. The core data network
consists of Nortel's Ethernet Routing Switch 8600 and Nortel Ethernet
Routing Switch 5520, which deliver Power over Ethernet to the edge.
The whole package delivers advanced telephony and messaging services
directly to the guests' rooms.

"could", "expects", "may", "anticipates", "believes", "intends",
"estimates", "plans", "envisions", "seeks" and other similar language
and are considered forward-looking statements or information under
applicable securities legislation. These statements are based on
Nortel's current expectations, estimates, forecasts and projections
about the operating environment, economies and markets in which
Nortel operates. These statements are subject to important
assumptions, risks and uncertainties, which are difficult to predict
and the actual outcome may be materially different. Although Nortel
believes expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements
are reasonable based upon certain assumptions, they may prove to be
inaccurate and consequently Nortel's actual results could differ
materially from its expectations set out in this press release.
Further, actual results or events could differ materially from those
contemplated in forward-looking statements as a result of the
following (i) risks and uncertainties relating to Nortel's
restatements and related matters including: Nortel's most recent
restatement and two previous restatements of its financial statements
and related events; the negative impact on Nortel and NNL of their
most recent restatement and delay in filing their financial
statements and related periodic reports (including the anticipated
delay in filing the Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the first
quarter of 2006) causing them to breach their public debt indentures
and obligations under their credit facilities with the possibility
that the holders of their public debt or NNL's lenders would seek to
accelerate the maturity of that debt, and causing a breach of NNL's
support facility with EDC with the possibility that EDC would refuse
to issue additional support under the facility, terminate its
commitments under the facility or require NNL to cash collateralize
all existing support; legal judgments, fines, penalties or
settlements, or any substantial regulatory fines or other penalties
or sanctions, related to the ongoing regulatory and criminal
investigations of Nortel in the U.S. and Canada; any significant
pending civil litigation actions not encompassed by Nortel's proposed
class action settlement; any substantial cash payment and/or
significant dilution of Nortel's existing equity positions resulting
from the finalization and approval of its proposed class action
settlement, or if such proposed class action settlement is not
finalized, any larger settlements or awards of damages in respect of
such class actions; any unsuccessful remediation of Nortel's material
weaknesses in internal control over financial reporting resulting in
an inability to report Nortel's results of operations and financial
condition accurately and in a timely manner; the time required to
implement Nortel's remedial measures; Nortel's inability to access,
in its current form, its shelf registration filed with the United
States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), and Nortel's below
investment grade credit rating and any further adverse effect on its
credit rating due to Nortel's restatement of its financial
statements; any adverse affect on Nortel's business and market price
of its publicly traded securities arising from continuing negative
publicity related to Nortel's restatements; Nortel's potential
inability to attract or retain the personnel necessary to achieve its
business objectives; any breach by Nortel of the continued listing
requirements of the NYSE or TSX causing the NYSE and/or the TSX to
commence suspension or delisting procedures; any default in Nortel's
filing obligations extending beyond July 15, 2006 for the First
Quarter 2006 Form 10-Qs, causing any Canadian securities regulatory
authority to impose an order to cease all trading in Nortel's
securities within the applicable jurisdiction or to impose such an
order sooner if Nortel fails to comply with the alternate information
guidelines of such regulatory authorities; (ii) risks and
uncertainties relating to Nortel's business including: yearly and
quarterly fluctuations of Nortel's operating results; reduced demand
and pricing pressures for its products due to global economic
conditions, significant competition, competitive pricing practice,
cautious capital spending by customers, increased industry
consolidation, rapidly changing technologies, evolving industry
standards, frequent new product introductions and short product life
cycles, and other trends and industry characteristics affecting the
telecommunications industry; any material and adverse affects on
Nortel's performance if its expectations regarding market demand for
particular products prove to be wrong or because of certain barriers
in its efforts to expand internationally; any reduction in Nortel's
operating results and any related volatility in the market price of
its publicly traded securities arising from any decline in its gross
margin, or fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates; any
negative developments associated with Nortel's supply contract and
contract manufacturing agreements including as a result of using a
sole supplier for key optical networking solutions components, and
any defects or errors in Nortel's current or planned products; any
negative impact to Nortel of its failure to achieve its business
transformation objectives; additional valuation allowances for all or
a portion of its deferred tax assets; Nortel's failure to protect its
intellectual property rights, or any adverse judgments or settlements
arising out of disputes regarding intellectual property; changes in
regulation of the Internet and/or other aspects of the industry;
Nortel's failure to successfully operate or integrate its strategic
acquisitions, or failure to consummate or succeed with its strategic
alliances; any negative effect of Nortel's failure to evolve
adequately its financial and managerial control and reporting systems
and processes, manage and grow its business, or create an effective
risk management strategy; and (iii) risks and uncertainties relating
to Nortel's liquidity, financing arrangements and capital including:
the impact of Nortel's most recent restatement and two previous
restatements of its financial statements; any acceleration under
their public debt indentures and credit facilities, which may result
in Nortel and NNL being unable to meet their respective payment
obligations; any inability of Nortel to manage cash flow fluctuations
to fund working capital requirements or achieve its business
objectives in a timely manner or obtain additional sources of
funding; high levels of debt, limitations on Nortel capitalizing on
business opportunities because of credit facility covenants, or on
obtaining additional secured debt pursuant to the provisions of
indentures governing certain of Nortel's public debt issues and the
provisions of its credit facilities; any increase of restricted cash
requirements for Nortel if it is unable to secure alternative support
for obligations arising from certain normal course business
activities, or any inability of Nortel's subsidiaries to provide it
with sufficient funding; any negative effect to Nortel of the need to
make larger defined benefit plans contributions in the future or
exposure to customer credit risks or inability of customers to
fulfill payment obligations under customer financing arrangements;
any negative impact on Nortel's ability to make future acquisitions,
raise capital, issue debt and retain employees arising from stock
price volatility and further declines in the market price of Nortel's
publicly traded securities, or any future share consolidation
resulting in a lower total market capitalization or adverse effect on
the liquidity of Nortel's common shares. For additional information
with respect to certain of these and other factors, see Nortel's
Annual Report on Form 10- K/A and other securities filings with the
SEC. Unless otherwise required by applicable securities laws, Nortel
disclaims any intention or obligation to update or revise any
forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information,
future events or otherwise.
