In today's age of Web 2.0 and cloud computing, security can actually be a positive enabler for driving business performance. To achieve this objective, enterprises can benefit from having a corporate-wide strategy, or a "security blueprint," that allows the enterprise...

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.

Key Factors Driving the Need for a Comprehensive Security Blueprint

A recent U.S. Government Accountability Office report warned that cyber-threats facing federal networks and the country's critical infrastructure are becoming increasingly sophisticated. And while the number of attacks is exponentially growing - security incidents grew by over 200 percent from...

Leveraging Strategic Collaboration to Enhance Network Operations and Service Offerings

Given the state of the market, operators need a new strategy to differentiate and compete successfully. Reducing capital and operating expenses and generating new revenue while defining the business models that can help in meeting critical business goals is one...

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.

Alcatel-Lucent Turns Focus to Green IT, Launches Eco-Sustainability Site

To supports its global eco-sustainability campaign, Alcatel-Lucent has recently launched its new Eco-sustainability Web site, which details its corporate mission to promote environmentally aware communications technology across the globe.

Competition vs. Collaboration: Strategies for New Revenue Generation

The idea is that working in tandem with other industry experts facilitates more rapid development of products that will be more widely available, more reliable, and more cost effective to develop. In addition, market acceptance is increased due to the collaborative nature of the product(s) - there is less hesitation resulting from the perception of single-vendor bias.

What is the impact of new IP applications on wireless networks?

Depending on the specific applications and their automatic or manual refresh sequences, and the nework dormancy timer (the maximum time before a connection is automatically deactivated after non-usage), and, of course, download speeds, a recent Alcatel-Lucent white paper describers how different variations on a single application can result in significant differences in transmission loads and the number of signaling events in a one-hour actual RF airtime span.

Top 10 Ways to 'Free Your Network' and Successfully Work with Third Parties

Telco interest in working with third-party service providers and developers is growing fast, and with good reason. In the 15 years since the Internet became a global phenomenon, there has been an intense growth in the number of services that customers...

Leveraging Multi-industry Ecosystems to Speed Service Innovation

ABI Research predicts that Verizon Wireless, for example, will spend close to $30 billion on spectrum and infrastructure, and while LTE technology will present Verizon and other operators with significant reductions in operating costs, they will still need to find new revenue streams support their business models to compete effectively.

Using Ecosystems to Drive New Revenue and Innovation

In a next generation communications environment, it becomes almost impossible to achieve high levels of success with the former. The need to accommodate to accommodate different means of access and devices and to maintain viable financial models by making services adaptable to multiple user types means providers must facilitate interaction with other companies as they seek to develop and introduce new services.

Using Multimedia Content Management Solutions to Drive New Revenue While Increasing QoE

The evolution of networks, content, applications, and devices, combined with user's understanding of the capabilities available to them and their new expectations that result from this enlightenment make it critical for providers to be able to leverage flexible service delivery and management infrastructures.

Driving Innovation Through Multi-Industry Ecosystems

Indeed, ecosystems provide an opportunity for businesses that would have had little cause to work together under traditional business models, to generate added value for the members of a growing number of ecosystems as well as their end users.

How the Recession is Impacting Consumer Spending on Network-based Services

What it means is there is an ongoing opportunity for network operators, whose services are viewed as a much more fundamental part of everyday life than other leisure activities. Indeed, broadband service can be considered recession-proof.

Speed Introduction of New Intelligent Applications and Time to Revenue

By collaborating closely with third-party developers and content providers - and by allowing them greater access to network resources, including QoS capabilities, network-based storage, and key subscriber and device data - operators will not only create long-lasting relationships with these providers by increasing their networks' value to them, but will also allow intelligent, contextual applications and services to be more efficiently developed and rolled out, lowering all-important time to revenue.
