Nortel Solution Unifies Campus for Hulunbeier New Gold Chemical Company


Unified Communications Boosts Productivity, Cuts Energy Consumption, Costs

BEIJING - The staff of Hulunbeier New Gold Chemical Company (HNGCC) will benefit from improved productivity and environmental savings through deployment of a unified communications solution from Nortel* [NYSE/TSX: NT ] across its entire campus. HNGCC is a joint venture of Yuntianhua Group and Hongkong New Gold Group.

In building its new factory in Hulunbeier, located in the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, HNGCC needed a high-performance, highly reliable and cost-effective infrastructure that could manage a wide range of operational information. The Nortel solution enables HNGCC to combine campus communications such as entrance guard security information and video surveillance, with unified communications functions like one-click access to VoIP, multimedia conferencing, email, instant messaging and presence-based applications. Nortel’s proven energy-efficient solutions will position Hulunbeier to deliver these capabilities while cutting energy consumption by up to 40 percent over competing solutions.

“Nortel’s unified communications solution will facilitate factory monitoring and unfettered communications among employees whereever they are across the campus,” said Jerry Huang, general manager, Enterprise Networks, Greater China, Nortel. “Even better, with Nortel solutions proven to offer up to 20 times the performance and seven times the resiliency at half the cost of competing solutions , Hulunbeier can enjoy its improved collaboration at lower cost and with lower environmental impact.”**

Hulunbeier’s new environment leverages Nortel’s flagship Communication Server (CS) 1000 , Multimedia Communication Server (MCS) 5100 and Ethernet Routing Switch (ERS) 8600 . The MCS 5100, a network-based SIP application-delivery solution, offers powerful real-time collaboration capabilities to enhance teamwork during virtual meetings. It seamlessly integrates IP telephony, multimedia conferencing, instant messaging, presence, and other collaboration tools to employees anytime, anywhere.
