Bell Canada is the exclusive telecommunications partner to the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics, and Nortel is the official converged network equipment supplier. The 2010 Winter Games will be the first Olympics to converge all voice, video and data traffic over a single IP-based network. 2010 will also be the first Olympics to use voice over IP (VoIP) for all event locations.

The network is up and running and already carrying live traffic for game qualifications, World Cup Games and general business information for the Vancouver Organizing Committee.

The Winter Games begin February 10, 2010. During the 17 days of events and the following 10 days of Paralympic Games, the network must deliver voice, video, data and broadcast services across 15 geographically dispersed venues in Vancouver and Whistler, as well as numerous support venues. More than one million visitors are expected to attend and 10,000 media representatives will provide coverage to three billion TV viewers in 160 countries.
