LAS VEGAS -- Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) announced today the launch of a first-of-a-kind signaling defense solution to protect wireline and wireless carrier networks from signaling and Short Message Service (SMS) based intrusion.

The Alcatel-Lucent 5074 Signaling Defense System (SDS), now available globally, is the first solution on the market that can be deployed across a carrier's entire network for the protection of its Signaling System Number 7 (SS7) links to other mobile operators. SS7 is a global telecommunications standard that defines the procedures and protocols by which network elements in the public switched telephone network exchange information over a digital signaling network in order to handle wireless and wireline call setup, routing and control, as well as end user’s short text messages.

The Alcatel-Lucent 5074 SDS complements the Alcatel-Lucent 9900 Wireless Network Guardian, which detects IP traffic that threatens the performance of wireless data networks. Both products secure wireless carrier networks.

The Alcatel-Lucent 5074 SDS enables a carrier to permit, deny and modify signaling traffic across its network to address the risks associated with widespread interconnection and open access, including phantom traffic, revenue-impacting interoperability issues, SMS spam and hackers.

“We are pleased to provide our customers with a solution that enables operators to take control of all inter- and intra-carrier signaling and SMS traffic to minimize attacks via converged, open access networks," said Dave Geary, President of Alcatel-Lucent’s Multicore activities. "Our solution ensures network security, reliability, quality of service and revenue assurance for carriers as they provide customers with universal connectivity."

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
