Nortel, LG Electronics Team on WiMAX

Nortel and LG Electronics announced plans to work together to jointly develop and market WiMAX products. The partnership will combine Nortel's carrier packet networking and OFDM/MIMO (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing/Multiple In, Multiple Out) technology with LG Electronics' mobile telecommunications and digital convergence expertise.

Nortel and LG will develop WiMAX solutions based on the 802.16e standard and the WiMAX networking specification, currently under development within the WiMAX Forum. The companies are planning customer WiMAX 802.16e trials in the second half of 2006.

This partnership announcement follows a January 2005 M.O.U. under which the companies agreed to establish a joint venture for providing telecommunications equipment and networking solutions to Korea and other markets globally.
