PARIS -- Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) today announced it has been selected by Belgacom (Euronext Brussels: BELG), the Belgian leading telecom operator, as its technology and network integration partner to design, integrate, and deploy an end-to-end multi-vendor IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) solution. The platform will enable Belgacom to effectively support and to further develop a wide variety of fixed and mobile services including voice over IP (VoIP) and multimedia communications for both residential and business customers.

Alcatel-Lucent will deliver a complete IMS applications and core network solution, based on a standard architecture, incorporating products from Alcatel-Lucent and partners, including application servers, session controllers, home subscriber servers, session border controllers and network/service management functionality. The solution, based on widely adopted standards facilitating convergence, will be a cornerstone of Belgacom’s future network.

As Belgacom’s primary network integrator, Alcatel-Lucent will use its global network of IP Transformation Centers - including one in Antwerp - to provide network design and integration, testing and validation between the IMS Core, third-party applications and communications devices.

“Belgacom is implementing its customer-focused business transformation program with convergence as a clear focal point in our ‘Move to all-IP’ strategy for fixed and mobile networks,” said Scott Alcott, executive vice president of Belgacom's Service Delivery Engine. “Alcatel-Lucent has proven to be reliable supplier of next generation intelligent network and IMS solutions, as well as a strong IP transformation partner.”
