PARIS -- Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) is enabling Swisscom - Switzerland’s leading telecommunications provider - to give its customers the ability to record TV programs and store them in the cloud and then watch their recordings on any connected screen wherever they are, whenever they want. The service will help Swisscom further differentiate their IPTV offering and increase revenues by attracting new customers.

Jorg Nonnenmacher, Vice President of Alcatel-Lucent’s multiscreen activities said: “Alcatel-Lucent has applied its expertise in video systems integration to free Swisscom’s customers from the limitations of set top boxes with built-in hard-drives – that have limited storage capacity and are often prone to repair. From now on they are able to consume their recorded video content on any connected device such as tablets, mobile phones or PCs.”
