New Network Managed Service From Nortel Takes Worry out of VoIP

Geschrieben am 04-12-2006

Toronto (ots/PRNewswire) -

- Includes Industry's First Real-Time Support for IP Telephony
Voice Quality

Enterprises can speed the transition from traditional voice
networks to secure, reliable, high-quality IP telephony while
reducing both cost and risk with the latest Network Managed Service
from Nortel(x) (NYSE: NT; TSX: NT).

Nortel Managed VoIP Service with Proactive Voice Quality
Management (PVQM) provides round-the-clock IP telephony network
operation and management, along with the industry's first
comprehensive, real-time support for VoIP quality of service.

For companies already using VoIP, this means predictable costs and

higher-quality service. For those still waiting to make the move,
Managed VoIP Service with PVQM complements Nortel's simple,
easy-to-implement IP telephony solutions to further reduce risk.

"Ask companies what makes them hesitate to jump into voice over IP
and most will give you the same reasons - voice quality, cost, and
lack of skills to manage the transition," said Nigel Parnell, vice
president, Network Managed Services, Nortel. "They want help dealing
with these issues. They want Business Made Simple. This service can
help make that happen."

"High voice quality is essential to providing our clients with the
premium level of service they've come to expect," said T. Rajah,
chief information officer for CLSA, a Hong Kong-based brokerage firm.
CLSA uses Nortel's Communication Server 1000 and Network Managed
Services, and recently ordered Managed VoIP Service with PVQM.

"We are convinced that proactive monitoring and management is the
best approach to achieving high-quality VoIP," Rajah said. "Nortel
has shown us how outsourcing this unique service can provide
significant cost savings over trying to do it ourselves."

Available globally from Nortel's North America Network Management
Center in Raleigh, N.C., Managed VoIP Service with PVQM provides
monitoring of voice quality from network to handsets with real-time
notification and rapid resolution of any degradation.

Nortel has deployed IP telephony for thousands of customers around
the world, and has more than 15 years experience managing customer
networks. Rolls-Royce, Johnson Controls, Cadence, and Continuum
Healthcare are among the many organizations using Network Managed
Services from Nortel to reduce risk and control operating costs.

Network Managed Services with the establishment of an Asia Network
Management Center in New Delhi, India. This new center joins the EMEA

and the one in Raleigh to provide Network Managed Services around the
