Nortel Networks Ltd. has become the first wireless networks supplier to successfully complete a TL 9000 consolidation registration across an end-to-end portfolio of hardware, software and services for HSDPA (High Speed Downlink Packet Access), UMTS (Universal Mobile Telecommunications System) and GSM (Global System Mobile) wireless infrastructure solutions.

“For Nortel, completing the industry’s most comprehensive consolidated certification has resulted in streamlined and simplified processes, shorter timelines, and harmonized measurements,” said Agnes Sleiman, GSM and UMTS quality and business processes leader at Nortel.

The TL 9000 standard for Quality Management System Requirements and Measurements was developed by the QuEST Forum, a leading industry group comprised of telecommunications companies including service providers, infrastructure vendors, second-tier suppliers, and liaison bodies.

It was designed to raise the bar on ISO 9000 standards by providing a more comprehensive quality, reliability and measurement system around the end-to-end deployment of network infrastructure and associated support services.
