PARIS -- Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) has signed an agreement with Statoil to co-design and deliver a solution incorporating high-bandwidth communications and electrical power supply into subsea control systems for offshore oil and gas production facilities. The solution will address tiebacks – connections from offshore/onshore production facilities to subsea equipment - for oil and gas recovery. The solution developed by Alcatel-Lucent with Statoil will provide seabed connection points for the superior delivery of communication services and power supplies, thus eliminating the inherent interface bottlenecks in current subsea control architectures. Using advanced technology from Alcatel-Lucent’s submarine telecommunication systems, the new solution will target near-unlimited distances at any sea depth, with superior reliability and resiliency. The subsea connection points will be compatible with existing offshore fields as well as future fields and technologies. Philippe Dumont, President, Alcatel-Lucent Submarine Networks, said: “We are pleased to work closely with Statoil on such a breakthrough technology. Alcatel-Lucent uniquely combines its world-class subsea expertise in design and marine operations. Our innovation capabilities will help Statoil and the rest of the industry make its offshore operations more efficient, more reliable and expand Statoil capabilities to extract oil and gas from its reservoirs.This project gives us the opportunity to leverage submarine cable technologies for new pioneering subsea applications.” Alcatel

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
