Yankee Group Ranks Nortel Networks Number One in Wireless Internet

A new report from the Yankee Group (Boston) called "Positioning for an IP Mobility World" gives Nortel Networks (Santa Clara, CA) an early lead in a comparison of the next-generation architectures that major global manufacturers will use for delivering the Wireless Internet.

The study credited the company with having "the clout and the IP goods" to deliver on its Unified Networks vision. The company was also noted for its cellular, PCS, and data networking product portfolio, along with extensive coverage of both the wireless service provider and enterprise markets.

"Currently, we believe that Nortel Networks has the edge," says Crispin Vicars, director of the Yankee Group. "Its product strategy has been announced and not only broadly covers the different air interface markets but also both the service provider and enterprise markets."
