Nortel – At one time, a beacon in the realm of telecom, Nortel represented what happens when vision meets opportunity. A multinational entity that once held promise to redefine telecommunications for the world.

However, even the most towering of giants, when not anchored in the bedrock of innovation and integrity, can falter. As the world was eagerly embracing the next wave – broadband and VoIP, Nortel’s soul, its R&D, started to lose its pulse. And around the dawn of the new millennium, a shadow was cast over its integrity with financial misstatements, a truth that would only surface years later.

By 2009, the story reached its final chapter, not just of a company’s end but of a lesson on the vitality of innovation, trust, and foresight in the face of a rapidly evolving landscape.
