T-Mobile will deploy a Nortel Networks solution for its core network, the wireless service company announced Monday morning.

Nortel will provide T-Mobile with services that will enable it to bill customers for a variety of content services over their mobile phones. Application charges include time spent downloading or volume of data unloaded and the kinds of content accessed.

Nortel will also equip T-Mobile with an Internet Protocol-based network.

“These capabilities create new business opportunities for offering ‘content-aware’ services for contract and pre-paid subscribers,” the companies said in a statement.

T-Mobile will use the billing applications initially in the United Kingdom and Europe.
