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.

Key Facts:

  • 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

    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.
