"Vision. That is what defines Nortel;s history. This company is a global powerhouse and one of the select few that are redefining the way that information is shared. If you want to read a great business story, look no further."

Synopsis:

Nortel Networks is one of the longest-running technology growth stories. In a volatile industry sector, where growth is often a mercurial flash in the pan, the company has an amazing record of staying power and success. It has been around for over a century and has successfully made the transition from old technology to new technology several times, emerging as a world leader in the telecommunications industry. This work examines the technical innovations and the people that have contributed to Nortel's long success - from Alexander Graham Bell and the origins of Nortel as the manufacturing arm of Bell Telephone, to production of the manually-operated telephone switchboards of the 1890's and today's digital switches.
