Communications solutions provider Nortel has signed a contract to supply the Knesset with an advanced Internet Protocol (IP) telephony network to support secure voice services, the company said. Industry sources said the contract is valued at approximately $4 million. Nortel said that its converged IP telephony solution will allow members of Knesset to use their computers for a wide range of communications services such as long distance calls, voicemail and unified massaging. It is the company's first deployment of the system in Israel. The first phase of the project is expected to be completed by the end of 2005, whereby 400 of the total 1,600 lines in the system will be deployed in the Knesset's new wing, while the remaining lines will be upgraded in the second stage of the project during 2006.
