PARIS -- Nextenso, Alcatel's (Paris: CGEP.PA and NYSE: ALA) Internet software subsidiary, will deliver its localisation platform to Bouygues Telecom, targeting their enterprise market. With this technological savoir-faire, enterprises will be able to interface their core business applications with location-based information. One of the major strengths of Alcatel's application is that the geographical position of the mobile user is calculated with a very high level of precision. Moreover, this easy-to-install platform allows for the extraction of additional information from the network to deliver a better Quality of Service (QoS). Alcatel's location based technology relies on a future-proof concept, as it is compliant with Cell ID, E-OTD and A-GPS, and is also ready for GPRS networks. Installation and maintenance are in care of CAP Gemini, with whom Alcatel recently signed a partnership agreement for retailing, integration and maintenance of its location-based services offer. Jean-Michel Cornille, President of Alcatel's applications and software activities, commented: "We are very glad that Bouygues Telecom has chosen our location based service, and we are convinced that this solution brings added value to current networks and is beneficial to their future evolution."
