BYDGOSZCZ, Poland -- Lucent Technologies (NYSE: LU) announced today that it will introduce production and systems integration capabilities for CDMA2000® base stations for the 450 MHz spectrum (CDMA450) in the European market at its facility in Bydgoszcz, Poland. By sourcing production of the CDMA450 base station within Europe, Lucent will improve cycle and delivery times to its customers in the region as well as in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) by up to six days.

Introducing CDMA450 base station production at the Bydgoszcz site supports Lucent's regional sourcing concept of having systems integration centres close to the customer, while maintaining local CDMA450 production in China for the Asian market.

Lucent's Systems Integration Centre (SIC) in Bydgoszcz was established in 1993 and is currently the main regional source of 5ESS® switches and AnyMedia® broadband access solutions for the European market. In the last year, the Bydgoszcz SIC also has been selected to produce the 5ESS® Mobility Switch. By adding systems integration and production for CDMA450, Lucent can provide a cost-effective local supply chain for its customers in the region across a wide selection of its portfolio. It also enables Lucent to leverage its established supply chain in Poland and the region and provide faster response times by being in the same time zone.
