MURRAY HILL, N.J. -- Lucent Technologies (NYSE: LU) today announced a series of agreements for technology that complements and enhances its Internet Protocol Multimedia Subsystem (IMS)- based solution, enabling the delivery of instant messages and multimedia messages to wireless devices, and the use of a single Wi-Fi/cellular dual mode phone for public and enterprise networks services.

Under the agreements, Lucent has begun offering solutions incorporating technologies from Colibria and PCTEL (Nasdaq: PCTI).

The Colibria Companion Instant Messaging and Presence Server represents a powerful carrier-grade platform, delivering Open Mobile Alliance (OMA)- certified Instant Messaging and Presence Service (IMPS) and Session Initiation Protocol/IP Multimedia Subsystem support. Colibria's instant messaging technology has been integrated in Lucent's MiLife(R) Presence Solution. Colibria's technology has leading embedded client interoperability, with its server technologies also supporting legacy interfaces on a variety of applications, encompassing IMPS, IM, Voice Over IP and Push-to-Talk over Cellular.

PCTEL's Voice-Enabled Roaming Client (Roaming Client - VE) Software works on dual mode mobile handsets to enable end-users to seamlessly and easily roam between cellular and Wi-Fi networks. The software allows subscribers to have a single telephone number to make and receive voice calls on traditional CDMA- or GSM-based cellular networks or on broadband wireless networks, such as Wi-Fi networks, using VoIP. In addition to voice telephony, the software supports access to critical messaging services like SMS (Short Message Service) and Voice Mail.

"By integrating these technologies in Lucent's solutions, we will help our carrier customers bring blended lifestyle services to mobile subscribers," said Sandip Mukerjee, vice president, Lucent Technologies Applications Solutions Business Unit. "The agreements with Colibria and PCTEL are part of our strategy to continuously enhance and complement Lucent's IMS-based solution to maintain our position as a leader in IMS."
