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...

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Best Practices for Improving Time to Market of New Products and Services

These capabilities, made available to in-house developers or third-party partners, will allow for increased efficiency in the development of new services that can run on different platforms to support a wider user base.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
