Nortel set to spread its wings down under

[Nortel talks about its mobile IP plans in this report.]

by Jenny Sinclair -- "NORTEL Networks has announced plans to hire staff in Australia and aggressively sell its wireless Internet products to local telcos.

"In a sales strategy using the slogan "Wings of Light", Nortel will try to convince the owners of mobile bandwidth in Australia to create Internet Protocol-based networks as an environment for a range of services and content.

"It is promoting the "unification" of its optical, wireless and Internet Protocol products as the platform for the wireless Internet.

"Peter MacKinnon, vice-president for Nortel's wireless Internet strategy, said the company also planned to hire about 1400 staff across Asia, mainly in Australia, China and Korea. Last week, Nortel announced more than $US500 million ($A917 million) worth of contracts for wireless networks in China and a $US200 million contract in the Philippines.

"... MacKinnon said WAP and short messaging services should be seen as a "learning experience" for suppliers, telcos and users, rather than the way forward.
