Delivering the Dynamic Enterprise

The Dynamic Enterprise site, itself a highly interactive experience, features a variety of dynamically designed sub-sections to educate the business community on how to leverage converged communications to become more agile, including a clear definition of "dynamic enterprise," focusing on the connections between what Alcatel-Lucent calls the Four Pillars of the Dynamic Enterprise - network, people, process, and knowledge.

Open API a Goldmine, 'Win-Win' for All Involved

Alcatel-Lucent has come out with trio of new services aimed at helping network operators and developers more easily enable and create new applications that are manageable, reliable, scalable and secure. The company's Open API Service is a hosted service for application developers to access network capabilities. The service is powered by a standards-based platform. With this hosted service, developers can access critical network information through a common API.   Application enablement is a new business and network model that enables the combination of the trusted capabilities of service providers with the speed and innovation of the Web to enable a new generation of services and provide both consumers and business users with richer experiences, according to officials with the Paris-based company.   In conjunction with the rollout of its Open API Service, Alcatel-Lucent has launched a new Web site, which includes an interactive blog and forum. In the blog, Alcatel-Lucent's Mark Hudson wrote: "Network APIs are a gold mine for wireless carriers and developers.

Using communications to reduce climate change impact

At its Bell Labs facilities, and through its work with the CTVR, Alcatel-Lucent is looking to drive R&D efforts that will bring such energy efficient technologies to the next generation communications environment, helping reduce the carbon emissions from telecom equipment, which now stands at about two percent of the global carbon emissions, but is set to grow significantly in the coming years without such efforts from Alcatel-Lucent and the CTVR.

How can the Telecom sector use applications and services to enable other industries and consumers reduce their impact on the environment?

It's clear that businesses are looking to become more environmentally responsible - though largely because of the cost savings that are inherent to "going green." Regardless, the telecom sector, thanks to the proliferation of IP networking solutions and eco-friendly technologies, are in a position to play a major role in driving greenhouse gas reduction and energy conservation in the global business environment.

Technical, product leadership and the ability to test solutions prior to deployment: Why these attributes are key for LTE deployments

Yes, it's still all about the applications and content, but in order to effectively introduce the next generation of bandwidth-intensive services, operators have to take the time and effort to ensure success. Alcatel-Lucent not only provides the technology expertise to support an intelligent migration strategy, but is providing a forum for ongoing collaboration that will benefit the entire community - from network operators to end users.

How can I enable a single, unified sign on for my customers across multiple screens?

By leveraging technology like Alcatel-Lucent's TPSDA, operators will be able to eliminate the traditional gaps between different devices and different access technologies, unifying all services for their subscribers on a single architecture.

A look at the future: Re-defining the communications partner ecosystem

The services and capabilities that have, until now, served carriers well, are only a part of what subscribers are demanding - they want more services and applications, more access, and more integration with their various access devices and networks.

Best practices for managing events, policy and traffic on your network

Through its two components - the Alcatel-Lucent 9900 Detector (deployed in the packet core) and the Alcatel-Lucent 9900 Central (deployed in the NOC) - the 9900 WNG delivers a significant advantage to wireless operators looking for an edge over their competition, providing advantages in a number of areas, including operations, planning, security, engineering, marketing, and revenue assurance.

Enabling the Application & Content Provider: Collaboration for Innovation

By offering their partners access to their network intelligence, network operators can foster a more trusting, more equitable relationship with ACPs, prompting them to not only develop more applications and content faster, but to tailor them to targeted subscribers, creating a more viable and predictable revenue model.
