Nortel Improves Communications Flow At China’s Ministry Of Water Resources


Unified Communications Solution Links Employees In 31 Provinces
BEIJING - Employees of the Ministry of Water Resources (MWR) of the People’s Republic of China are enjoying significant productivity gains through improved communications after MWR implemented a unified communications solution from Nortel* [NYSE/TSX: NT] that links branch offices spanning 31 provinces and seven major river systems.

Responsible for water resources across China, MWR decided to upgrade its internal communications by implementing an IP-based communications platform to meet the demands of carrying voice, data, video and presence information on the same communication platform. After a two-year evaluation period, MWR selected Nortel to supply a converged communications platform that would enable delivery of collaboration tools across the organization.

Powered by Nortel technology, MWR’s new communication platform is designed and built with a combined IP PBX and soft switch architecture, which enables complete business communications delivery on one unified platform. This helps MWR significantly reduce its operating costs covering network construction and ongoing maintenance costs. MWR’s new converged IP network is now able to meet the demands of the new era of Hyperconnectivity which is placing unprecedented demands on the network.

“In organizations with widely distributed employees, maintaining effective communication and collaboration is a complex undertaking that can mean the difference between success and failure,” said Jerry Huang, general manager, Enterprise Networks, Nortel Greater China. “Nortel’s expertise in unified communications solutions, backed by our Business Made Simple philosophy, has taken the complexity out of this task. MWR now has a robust IP infrastructure that enables instant communication via VoIP, multimedia conferencing, instant messaging and presence-based applications. This means the Ministry’s employees can coordinate their activities whenever, however and from wherever they need, simply and effectively.”

MWR’s unified communications solution is built around Nortel’s Communication Server 1000 (CS 1000), a highly reliable IP PBX that offers more than 750 telephony features and supports up to 22,500 simultaneous IP users. MWR has also deployed the Nortel Multimedia Communication Server 5100 (MCS 5100), a SIP-based application delivery solution that delivers IP telephony, multimedia conferencing, instant messaging, presence, and other collaboration tools to a broad range of devices.
