Nortel will provide BT with routers, switches and networking equipment required to build and support the network and communications infrastructure for the London 2012 Olympics.

Nortel will be responsible for providing BT with the equipment to enable secure and robust Wide Area Networks, wireless Local Area Networks, and call centre and fixed telephony infrastructure required to stage the games.

Nortel said London 2012's communications would support more than 205 international sporting organisations, 20,000 worldwide media, nine million spectators, and more than four billion television viewers.
