excerpt from PRNewswire:

LONDON, March 22 /PRNewswire/ - Utfors, a visionary service provider in Scandinavia, and Nortel Networks (NYSE/TSE: NT) are pioneering in Europe a new networking model that will provide voice and high-speed Internet Protocol (IP) services to businesses and consumers at substantially lower cost.

This high-performance network will leverage Nortel Networks' 10 Gigabit Ethernet, a disruptive technology that uses Ethernet as the pervasive interface across the entire network, for as much as a 25x improvement in network price/performance.

By working with Nortel Networks, we are creating a new business model that could fundamentally change the economics of the Internet service provider industry,' said Sten Nordell, chief technology officer, Utfors. ``Utfors intends to provide high-speed combined voice and data IP services to both consumers and businesses.'

Launched today, Nortel Networks' end-to-end optical Ethernet portfolio is the industry's first complete, end-to-end solution for seamless connections from the core network to the desktop exclusively using Ethernet protocol. Utfors will use this solution to build Europe's first end-to-end Ethernet network.


This is a significant advance in networking technology, and a first for Europe,' said Malcolm Collins, president, Next Generation Service Providers, Nortel Networks. ``10 Gigabit Ethernet will play an increasingly important role in allowing service providers to deliver seamless, high-quality services to their customers through high-bandwidth optical networks. Nortel Networks is playing a major part in developing and building the optical Internet.'

Nortel Networks is enabling service providers to build a complete, end-to-end optical network which uses Ethernet as its interface -- seamlessly tying together residential, campus, regional, wide-area, and optical networks - through one ubiquitous, high-speed technology operating at 10/100/1000 Mbps and 10 Gigabit levels.
