Discontinuance of Manufacture – WLAN 6220 Access Point
Dear Customer,

In keeping with Nortel’s commitments to continually evolve our products, streamline our portfolio
and focus our resources on technologies with highest customer value, we are announcing the
manufacture discontinuance (MD) of the WLAN 6220 Access Point related hardware and
components immediately -- see Table below for equipment details.

Going forward MTI will be the sole sales and support entity for the WLAN 6220 Access Point
Unit (APU).

Replacement Strategy:
This notice serves as formal communication of Nortel's intent to transition the WLAN 6220
Access Point Unit (APU) to Manufacture Discontinued (MD) & End of Life (EOL) status and to
transfer Sales and Support to our partner MTI, effective immediately.

We are confident MTI will provide a high level of focus and knowledge to this product and its
capabilities and believe their ownership of the program will be beneficial to cable customers and
the sales effort. This is clear from the commitment to ongoing R&D efforts for the WLAN 6220,
which will allow it to continue to evolve with new features and technology.

Nortel’s decision to move forward with this transition reflects our commitment to focus on core
elements of our product portfolio, while working with partners to continue to deliver innovative
solutions. We believe MTI will continue to provide the support you need to deploy the WLAN
6220 successfully. Please feel free to contact your Nortel sales representative if more information
is required.

Technical Support and Repair:
Customers requiring Technical Support and Repair Services should contact the MTI help line on
+001 310 370 9578.

EFFECT OF CHANGE:
