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."

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.
