GOLDEN TELECOM DEPLOYS NORTEL TECHNOLOGY TO COMPLETE FTN.

Golden Telecom, Moscow, a leading alternative telecommunications operator in Russia, has deployed Nortel (NYSE/TSX: NT) technology to complete its long-distance and international Federal Transit Network (FTN). The network is designed to help operators across Russia provide more cost-effective long-distance and international voice and data services.

According to IKS-Consulting, the current size of the Russian long distance market is approximately eight million business and 32 million residential customers. The newly-deployed FTN has significantly extended Golden Telecom's geographic reach across Russia. Prior to launching its FTN, Golden Telecom had provided long distance services to customers and operators directly connected to the company's nine, city-wide, local digital networks across Russia.

"Our work with Golden Telecom is an excellent demonstration of the scope of our capability," said Sorin Lupu, president, Nortel Russia, Eastern Europe and Israel. "Nortel's work on the Federal Transit Network is designed to help make it simpler and more affordable for Russia's regional operators to provide more people with long-distance and international telephone services."

The FTN consists of four international communication transit nodes, seven intercity communications transit nodes, and 88 access nodes. It utilizes 50 Nortel Multiservice Switch 7400s to create a common network infrastructure providing increased capacity and extended network reach. The Nortel switching equipment is designed to help lower the network's operational costs by routing transmissions across a fast, and more cost-effective route. This also assists Golden Telecom to reduce the network leasing costs to regional operators.
