New Delhi, India (ots/PRNewswire) -

- Center Helps Customers Focus Resources on Business, Not Networks

Nortel(x) (NYSE: NT , TSX: NT) has enhanced its ability to help
enterprises, service providers and cable operators worldwide focus
resources on their business rather than their networks with the
opening of a new customer network management center in Asia.

Nortel's Asia Network Management Center in New Delhi, India joins
similar facilities in London and Raleigh, N.C. to provide network
management, technology transformation and hosted application services
for multi-vendor, multi-technology telecommunications networks
serving both local and multi-national companies. These services are
designed to take the worry out of networks by optimizing
performance, efficiency, reliability, security and cost.

"This new center plays a critical role in differentiating Bharti
Airtel from our competition, delighting our customers, and making our
business model cost-effective," said Dr. Jai Menon, director, IT and
Innovation, Bharti Airtel.

Bharti Airtel, India's leading provider of telecommunications
services , uses hosted contact center services and an interactive
voice response ( IVR) solution from Nortel to provide customers with
a virtual, multilingual storefront for ordering new services and
completing routine transactions - all managed from the Asia Network
Management Center.

"With Nortel minding the store 24/7, our customers can be assured
that we're always open and always available to respond to their
needs," Menon said. "It's this kind of support that allows us to
control our costs while focusing on the customer-facing aspects of
our business."

"There's tremendous opportunity for cost savings and improved
efficiency and performance through remote operation and management of
networks and applications," said Michael Pangia, president, Asia,
Nortel. " With our extensive Global Services portfolio and the
opening of our new Asia Network Management Center, we now have the
global scale to help our customers capitalize on this opportunity
virtually anywhere in the world."

Nortel's Global Services include a full range of network
application, implementation and support services for end-to-end
multi-vendor networks.
