Wireless backing

June 9, 2000

Global network solutions company Nortel Networks has financed a new A$4 million (Pounds 1.5 million) technology centre investigating wireless internet applications based at the University of Wollongong.

The centre was designed by architect HBO+EMTB and replaces a smaller Nortel Networks research and development facility at the university.

Nortel Networks has been running R&D programmes on the Australian campus for more than ten years.

The centre was officially opened last week by Pierre Pettigrew, Canadian minister for international trade, and Michael Egan, treasurer and minister for state development, New South Wales State government.
