"They will have [financial] incentives to meet deadlines, roll out product and secure customers," said Anil Khatod, president of optical Internet for Nortel.But Qtera already is on the right track, having recently secured a spot in Qwest Communications' all-optical test bed. "This is really a great opportunity for us because it gives us the ability to extend our optical platform even further," Khatod said.That extension of the platform involves the expanded reach of optical transmissions in Qtera's case, as it is supposed to eliminate the need for up to 75% of electronic regenerations."It cuts the equipment required by the network and lowers the cost of bandwidth by 40% to 50%," Khatod said.

"We have decided to increase our investment in India to $100 million in the next financial year to step up our R&D activity here, and tap the vast pool of skilled professionals," said Anil Khatod, president of the global Internet solutions division of Nortel Networks.

Nortel markets its wireless plan
One of the largest physical constraints for those service providers today is backhauling traffic from wireless base stations to the provider's point-of-presence, says Anil Khatod, president of Nortel's Internet business solutions group. In other words, by upgrading the gear that sits between where data originates and the places in the network where it is processed and routed, Nortel thinks it will make it easier for consumers to do more without plugging into a network. SOFTWARE AND HARDWARE FOR MOBILITY Crucial to this capability are the two new technologies that Nortel announced June 19.The first, Nortel's E-mobility Acceleration software, is designed to make office applications -- such as accessing corporate intranets and downloading files -- more palatable over wireless connections. If service providers do buy in, Mr. Khatod says they can expect a return on their investment in as little as two years. Analysts say it could be anywhere from nine months to two years before the first fruits of Nortel's strategy will be obvious to end users.Reasons for any delay in the strategy could be as diverse as Nortel not getting its technology to service providers on time, or service providers having to wait for permission from building owners to place wireless antennas on rooftops.

A company insider says Anil Khatod, who was president of Nortel's global Internet solutions division at the time, made a presentation to executive teams in October, 2000, advising them to "tone down" the company's overly ambitious growth forecasts in light of tougher times ahead. Apparently, company executives didn't listen. On Oct. 24, Nortel released its highly anticipated third-quarter results, but they failed to dazzle.A sore spot was Nortel's much-touted optical business, which sells fibre-optic equipment for boosting the Internet.The area didn't grow as fast as hoped.
