Create an Optimal Partner Ecosystem for Delivering New Services and Applications

This understanding of how to leverage third parties is a key component of Alcatel-Lucent's application enablement vision, which includes network evolution to a high leverage network, and collaboration with the application developer community - and, ultimately, managing the integration of new applications in the network environment and identifying ways to effectively monetize those relationships.

Monetizing Web 2.0

So, now that Stage One is well underway, with the user community deeply into the process of integrating Web 2.0 capabilities into their daily routines, the question becomes, how can businesses monetize Web 2.0? How can they join the broadband economy?

Building a Dynamic Enterprise and Increasing Operational Sustainability Through Green IT

To help enterprises achieve their Green IT goals, Alcatel-Lucent builds and develops its communications equipment in support of and in compliance with a number of environmental initiatives, including RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances), WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment), and electrical emissions, as well as the IEEE's goals towards shaping a more energy efficient communications environment.

Service Provider Strategies for a Recession and Beyond

Using the latest network technologies from Alcatel-Lucent, network providers are able to build and optimize their networks to seamlessly deliver more services, more reliably, with greater flexibility leveraging converged access technologies and dynamic bandwidth allocation to increase operational efficiency, lower costs, and reduce carbon footprint.

Alcatel-Lucent's touchatag Cited for Innovation in RFID Space

Now, five months later, a renewed focus on the product has earned touchatag a 2009 Best Products and Services Award from Network Products Guide. The award is a testament to Alcatel-Lucent's success in being able to adapt its solutions to meet evolving market needs in a next generation communications environment.

NTT Docomo Moving to LTE with Alcatel-Lucent

In order to facilitate that network migration, NTT Docomo has selected Alcatel-Lucent to build its backhaul network for its LTE-based services using the French-American firm's Ethernet transmission solution.

Broadband Dependency Creates Bright Future for Multi-Solution Vendors

More specifically, 84 percent of survey respondents agree that broadband is an essential service, making it a less likely target for cost cutting efforts. Perhaps more importantly, subscribers indicate a propensity for upgrading their broadband services -- or, subscribing to a service, for those currently without it.

AT&T Extends Relationship with Alcatel-Lucent for U-verse Delivery

Using Alcatel-Lucent's Triple Play Service Delivery Architecture, AT&T has been able to integrate its U-verse TV service into its overall infrastructure, ensuring it can reliably deliver an expanding set of feature-rich services to its growing subscriber base.

Today's Wireless Networks Built for Tomorrow

That's where Alcatel-Lucent's expertise shines. Its LTE model is one that not only delivers on the promise of next generation communications, but its Ultimate Wireless Broadband End-to-End LTE solution is one that offers a migration path from any 2G or 3G infrastructure, in addition to a broad range of ecosystem partners with device, application, and content expertise.

Alcatel-Lucent Teams with HP to Deliver Truly Integrated Communications Solutions

Now, it is looking to leverage HP's expertise to reduce the complexity of the migration process for both service providers and enterprises, as they seek to create and deliver more efficient and truly integrated communications environments.
