Alcatel-Lucent's touchatag Announces Urban Game Challenge for Developers

This week, Alcatel-Lucent has taken steps to extend its touchatag service to a wider developer community, announcing a competition, called "Vienna Jungle Scrum," inviting developers to submit their entries for the most innovative Near Field Communications (NFC) urban game for mobile phones.

Lowering Network Costs While Increasing Your Broadband Footprint

In addition, high leverage networks, which can be implemented in stages - again to accommodate budget constraints - allow for the convergence of network infrastructures both vertically (across network layers) and horizontally (across residential, business, and mobile users), allowing for a single infrastructure to support multiple access technologies, providing a lower TCO - ultimately driving down cost of operation.

Alcatel-Lucent Launches "Enriching Communications" e-Zine

To help drive the growth of LTE technologies and support operators looking form information on how to approach its challenges, the first edition of the online version of Enriching Communications focuses on business growth through migration the LTE.

Best Practices for Optimizing Subscriber Migration and QoE During Transition from Legacy to LTE Networks

In fact, although CDMA and EV-DO technologies offer a smooth migration path to LTE technologies, each mobile operator has to consider its own needs with regards to time to market, choice of migration path, ecosystem development, interoperability, spectrum efficiency, and CAPEX.

Evolve to a More Stable Business Model and Create New Revenue Opportunities

By embracing a the applications enablement ideal, and a high leverage network, operators will put themselves, and their partners, well on the path to a sustainable, mutually beneficial business model for the next generation communications environment. And ultimately, both will benefit from the ability to combine to deliver new, innovative, and rich set of applications to the user community.

Green IT - Increase Eco-Sustainability in a Converged Communications Environment

By deploying the latest Green strategies, including energy-efficient hardware, but also leveraging technology to hold virtual meetings and reduce paper documents - all of which also increase efficiency in a collaborative environment - the business world, and the telecom space, in particular, has the ability to promote eco-friendliness globally.

Enhance Network Relevance to Strengthen Customer Relationships

In addition to the network infrastructure, operators have significant resources that can be leveraged to deliver applications and content more efficiently and reliably and, importantly, to the users that need or want them. It is these resources that can be leveraged to extend the value of the network to developers and content providers, increasing the ability to generate recurring revenue.

How to increase network value using 3rd party partnerships

The challenge is not only to find the right mix of third-party providers, but to also find the right model that will provide value to not only the end user, but the network operator and third-party developers and service providers as well.

Best practices for prioritizing next generation services that customers are willing to pay a premium for

The simple fact is that no single company has the resources or the knowledge to effectively understand which on which services they should focus their efforts for maximum uptake and exposure, let alone develop them for the widest possible audience.

How can I minimize the risk of new investments while increasing my network bandwidth, capacity and speed?

It's a model that works well for both sides. The network owners are able to increase the return on their network investments thanks to increased "rental" traffic, and the "renters" gain access to subscribers in areas in which they don't own network assets without having to invest time and capital in building out their infrastructures.

Identifying Key Areas for Next Generation Advertising Opportunities

People's communication behaviors are clearly changing by way of collaboration, social interaction, personalization, active participation and communication through technical devices.

Enhance and Prioritize Personalization with Contextually Aware Applications

The possibilities are nearly limitless, when providers leverage all the data that is available to them. The key is they have to do so in order to create the services that drive loyalty among user groups.

Best Practices for Managing OPEX in Today's Challenging Climate

Instead, services become the differentiating factor, which is where providers will focus their investment, and service providers of the future may not even own any network assets. Instead, their efforts will be entirely focused on the customer - acquisition, interaction, and retention.

How Can I Leverage the ng Connect Program to Accelerate My Ecosystem Development and Create Sticky Services?

It's that very dream of unleashing the true power of the mobile experience that provides the momentum for ng Connect. It's also why the greater this ecosystem becomes, the greater the benefit for its members will be.

Address Legacy Network Phase-out While Developing Solutions from Embedded Network Assets

Such investment is also the only path to being able to support end user demands for more interactive broadband services, including multimedia services, as well as tighter integration between telecom and other media.

Which Web 2.0 Services End Users Want and Are Willing to Pay For

The key for service providers is being able to identify the services that will be most attractive, and for which users will be able to pay.

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.
