Nortel wins Rev. A deal with Verizon Wireless

Verizon Wireless announced a deal with another usual suspect, Nortel Networks, for the supply of CDMA 1xEV-DO equipment. The announcement follows a similar deal with Lucent Technologies announced last month. Nortel will begin delivering the technology in the third quarter. Is Verizon Wireless ramping up deployments to match or beat Sprint Nextel's time table? The operator has yet to give any specific projections for rollout milestones. Sprint has said it would offer commercial Rev. A services by the end of next year.
