WASHINGTON -- Fortress Technologies, a leader in secure wireless networking, and Nortel(x) Government Solutions(x) have formed a strategic relationship to provide government agencies worldwide with a joint solution for secure wireless voice, video and data networking.

The companies have demonstrated a joint solution to a number of U.S. Government agencies that integrates market-proven products and services to secure voice and data applications across hybrid wireless (Wi-Fi, WiMAX) and wired networks. Fortress and Nortel Government Solutions will market and sell this solution to U.S. Federal Government agencies.

"Fortress wireless security products have a reputation for outstanding performance in both civilian and military markets," said Chuck Saffell, CEO, Nortel Government Solutions, a U.S. company wholly-owned by Nortel(x) (NYSE/TSX: NT). "They offer an industry-leading solution with the flexibility and interoperability to secure voice, video and data across Wi-Fi, WiMAX, free space optics, and wired Ethernet."

"The sensitive nature of government communications requires complete, flexible and impenetrable security solutions that are seamless to the end user," said Janet Kumpu, CEO and president, Fortress Technologies. "Combining Nortel Government Solutions' breadth of government experience and Nortel's expertise in voice and WiMAX technologies with the wireless security expertise of Fortress creates a relationship that raises the bar on secure wireless communications for the public sector."
