Nortel Networks will be demonstrating its next generation Wireless Data Network solutions this week at 3GSM World Congress in Cannes (Booth A15, Hall 1, Palais des Festivals), and by invitation only at the Nortel Networks Demo Centre.
Nortel Networks live demonstrations will showcase Nortel Networks Univity* solutions interworking at high speed with a range of terminals, applications and services. These solutions are designed to help position operators to drive new revenues, and to optimise their infrastructure investments.
Both the Nortel Networks booth at 3GSM World Congress and the Nortel Networks Demo Centre will feature live 2.5G and 3G wireless services from a user perspective. Visitors will be able to experience how users will:
See - video telephony, video streaming and simultaneous browsing and talking over a variety of UMTS (Universal Mobile Telecommunications System), single and dual-mode handsets for rich, immediate multimedia communications
Play - single-user and networked games, targeted to the youth market, over third generation (3G) technology
Exchange - fun, personalized interactive messaging that is just as simple as SMS (short messaging service), but with the added dimension of video and images
Find - location and presence services for online, multi-user 'chat sessions,' supported by Nortel Networks Univity Mobile Location Centre (MLC) and Interactive Multimedia Server (IMS) platforms
Work - technology-agnostic solutions for doing business wirelessly, including unified public Wi-Fi, 2.5G and 3G services with single sign-on, authentication and billing; and secure, mobile professional applications
These services are supported by a range of flexible billing models, including content-based, event-based, time-based, volume-based and prepaid, and by tools that can help operators maintain excellent service quality for their subscribers.
Nortel Networks will also be demonstrating the advantages of Nortel Networks Univity Wireless Data Networks, including: a common, unified packet core for GPRS (General Packet Radio Service), EDGE (Enhanced Data GSM Environment) and UMTS that offers personalisation and service ubiquity, and innovative and flexible billing solutions and security policies based on Nortel Networks Univity GGSN (Gateway GPRS Serving Node), SGSN (Serving Gateway Service Node), MLC and IMS server.
