 SAO PAULO, BRAZIL--(MARKET WIRE)--Sep 24, 2007 -- Nortel(1) (Toronto:NT.TO - News)(NYSE:NT - News) executives will address the challenges and opportunities of Hyperconnectivity - an emerging era of communications, where everything that can be connected to the network, will be connected - at Futurecom 2007 in Florianopolis, Brazil from October 1-4.

Futurecom is the premier Telecommunications and Information Technology event in Latin America and this year's show expects more than 7,000 industry participants.

"Based on market data, broadband penetration in the region will increase from 2.6% to 8.2% from 2006 to 2012, which proves that Hyperconnectivity will be a reality in Brazil soon," said Juan Chico, president, Nortel Brazil. "Futurecom 2007 will provide the opportunity for us to show the market how our solutions and services can help them better prepare for this industry trend by helping customers reduce the complexity and harness the opportunities posed by Hyperconnectivity in their businesses."

At Futurecom 2007, Nortel executives will discuss the future of telecommunications on various panels:

"Hyperconnectivity will increase the size of the communications ecosystem, which will cause a corresponding explosion of new, high-bandwidth applications to further challenge the boundaries of the network," said Alvio Barrios, president, Nortel CALA. "We will show solutions to some of these challenges."
