Nortel Networks Corp. and the Vancouver Organizing Committee for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games (VANOC) announced today that Nortel will be the official converged network equipment supplier for the Games.

As part of the sponsorship agreement, Nortel will supply the network communications equipment required for what will be the first all-IP converged Games network.

Nortel will be providing the converged local area network (LAN) equipment to VANOC at 15 Games venues in both Vancouver and Whistler as well as at the Vancouver 2010 headquarters and numerous supporting venues.

In addition, Bell Canada earlier selected Nortel to supply the wide area network (WAN) equipment it will use to build a core network to enable secure and reliable communications among all event locations.

Bell Canada, the telecommunications services provider for the 2010 Games, will use Nortel VoIP, Metro Ethernet and IP products to create and deploy a dedicated carrier-class IP network for VANOC that converges all voice, video and data communications.
