How Innovation and Vision created a Network Giant
This book contains valuable lessons and insights from one the leading and longest-running telecommunication firms in the world. Nortel Networks is one of the longest-running technology growth stories. The company has been around for more than a century; surviving two World Wars, the Great Depression and numerous recessions. It has successfully made the transition from old technology to new technology several times, emerging as a world leader in the telecommunications industry.
This book examines the technology and the people that have contributed to Nortel's long success - from Alexander Graham Bell's invention of the telephone and the origins of Nortel as the manufacturing arm of Bell Telephone, to the production of the manually-operated telephone switchboards of the 1890s and today's digital switches.
