Alcatel-Lucent strengthens telecom innovation

"Our clients want to provide the best communications solutions to consumers and businesses. It is our job to keep innovating to ensure they are able to do so. These technologies are examples of how in 2011 we helped our customers to deliver the very best communications. Whether assisting emergency services, or providing mobile access to areas before in service dead-zones, the last year has seen Alcatel-Lucent make significant progress," said Ben Verwaayen, chief executive of Alcatel Lucent.

Solution to the problem

In 2011 Alcatel-Lucent launched lightRadio which is a solution to the problem. It is a cube in other words lighter than a drinks can and not much bigger, reduces network power consumption by 51 percent and can be deployed in locations that before did not have mobile coverage.

We have developed CloudBand to connect the network to the cloud. Cloud computing is now available to network companies, not just a couple of high profile app developers. CloudBand is a research that gives service providers the ability to offer cloud computing to retail and consumer clients. It is the foundation for a new class of 'carrier-cloud' services.

To enable transformation, power utilities are taking a closer look at the power of their communications network to enable the smart grid and its real-time applications. Alcatel-Lucent has worked with Canadian utility AltaLink to move all mission-critical communications onto wide-area networks, thereby taking advantage of reliable digital features and functionality.

OpenTouch suite of communications platforms allows companies to embrace multimedia and multi-party communications. Where once companies relied on telephones and one-to-one meetings, OpenTouch means they can now incorporate new tools to ensure the most efficient working practices.
