The article focuses on the response of Nortel to the technology strategy announced by networking firm Cisco in which the company will embed application functions into the network in order to make enterprise communications more flexible. Since Cisco sees social and other form of viral networking as the key factor in networking changes, the company developed a strategy to exploit such changes. However, Nortel questions and challenges Cisco's strategy.
