In a short period of time, Nortel has evolved into a recognized leader in the Carrier VoIP space, having shipped more than 123 million Carrier VoIP and Multimedia ports, including over 11 million SIP lines, to leading wireline and wireless carriers globally. Today, Nortel took a major step towards enhancing their future announcing that they added a new web-based UC collaboration application to its industry-leading Hosted IP Communications Solution.

The new application was unveiled at the ITPX event in Las Vegas (booth #209) and will enable service providers to increase subscriber productivity and generate incremental revenues by allowing users to instantly shift from conference calls to full, rich-media web collaboration when the need arises.

Samih Elhage, who serves as the President of the company, was quoted as saying, “Nortel CVAS’ Hosted IP Communications solution is unlocking new modes of communication and collaboration by eliminating the need for users to work with disparate and disconnected tools and services. Now when workers are speaking with each other and find that a richer collaborative environment is necessary, there is virtually zero time delay between decision to collaborate and collaboration. Our new application allows people to interact and collaborate virtually, almost as if they were in the same room. It also helps to improve business productivity and arms service providers with the means to increase subscriber loyalty and revenue potential.”

For this application, Nortel has teamed up with Dimdim which has quickly become a leader in web conferencing and allows anyone to host or attend live online meetings, demos and webinars using just a web browser with no additional software required. Nortel’s new application will incorporate Dimdim’s web conferencing platform into Nortel CVAS’ Adaptive Unified Communications.

DD Ganguly who serves as the CEO of Dimdim, stated, “Our goal is to provide our partners and customers with the most intuitive approach possible to Web conferencing. With no software to install or download and a myriad of advanced collaboration tools, Dimdim is committed to meeting the needs of all Nortel CVAS customers.”

Currently, Nortel is trading in the $0.51 range and has been consistently producing positive news. By teaming up with Dimdim and creating technology that has the potential to change the face of business collaboration, Nortel CVAS is a company on the move.
