Jamaica's Norman Manley International Airport Selects Nortel for Network Upgrades

SUNRISE, FLORIDA - Norman Manley International Airport (NMIA) has selected Nortel(1) (TSX: NT)(OTCBB: NRTLQ) for network enhancements that will enable new operating efficiencies between airport staff, airlines, customs and immigration groups, as well as improve customer service for airport customers. This project supports the Airport Authority of Jamaica's drive to modernize the island's two international airports, including NMIA which serves the capital of Kingston.

Nortel's unified communications solution will enable new applications that increase productivity and generate cost efficiencies for airport operations. The system will also enhance processes for travelers, such as airline reservations and passport control, as well as utilize VOIP and video-on-demand to deliver multimedia content to flight information monitors and airport lounges. Most importantly, the upgrades ensure a highly-secure and reliable network.

The new system will allow NMIA to run operations from one centralized network, eliminating the costs of building and maintaining separate systems for data, video and voice. The system will also be centrally managed, which enables NMIA to respond faster to operational issues.
