PARIS -- Verizon Wireless is to deploy Alcatel-Lucent’s (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) advanced data management platform throughout its network, helping to support the carrier’s LTE expansion.
The Alcatel-Lucent Subscriber Data Manager (SDM), part of the company’s IMS Subsystem portfolio of technologies designed to enable rich multimedia applications, will help support the expansion of Verizon’s LTE services by centralizing multiple application databases.
The deployment continues the role Alcatel-Lucent plays in the expansion of the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network, for which the company was named a key supplier for the IMS portion when the network was originally launched.
Verizon Wireless has selected Alcatel-Lucent’s SDM to help manage data traffic as the 4G LTE network continues to grow.
SDM is part of Alcatel-Lucent’s IMS (Internet Protocol Multimedia Subsystem) portfolio and will help centralize multiple individual databases across Verizon’s 4G LTE and 3G networks.
Verizon has chosen a comprehensive subscriber data management solution that also includes Alcatel-Lucent’s SDM, Motive Authentication, Authorization and Accounting Server, Centralized Operations Manager, and SDM Expert products as well as the VoLTE feature set.
Alcatel-Lucent was named as a key IMS supplier for Verizon Wireless’ 4G LTE network when it was announced in 2009 and has been providing multiple IMS services since that time.
Working with Verizon Wireless to efficiently and cost effectively support network performance through IMS is aligned with The Shift Plan, the industrial strategy to reposition Alcatel-Lucent as a specialist vendor of IP Networking and Ultra-Broadband Access
Light Reading is spending much of this year digging into the details of how automation technology will impact the comms market, but let's take a moment to also look at how automation is set to overturn the current world order by the middle of the century.
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.
