Alcatel-Lucent develops and integrates technologies, applications and services to offer innovative global communication solutions. These solutions enable telecom operators, internet access providers, companies and public administrations to deliver the multimedia services (telephony, fast internet access and video) their customers or users need in a broad-band communication world.
These high value-added services are made possible by technological innovation and a strong position on the fixed, mobile, converged and specialised communication markets: Alcatel-Lucent is a world leader in broadband access and optical transmission, a recognised player in new generation mobile networks and IP technologies, a pioneer of video software application development and an integrator of satellite telecommunication solutions and signaling networks for transport solutions. Thanks to the variety of its technology portfolio and integration capabilities, Alcatel-Lucent is able to offer its customers a unique range of services.
With the world-renowned Bell Labs joining forces with Research & Innovation labs, formerly Alcatel’s research arm, the Alcatel-Lucent research engine is powered by a community of researchers and scientists in 10 countries: US, Canada, France, Germany, Belgium, UK, Ireland, Netherlands, India and China. The department that will be mainly involved in IRMOS has a broad experience in delivering enhanced communication services on an intelligent next generation IP infrastructure, based on service aware and autonomous networking, service execution components and multimedia processing functions.
Alcatel-Lucent has been prime contractor of many European research projects in the field addressed by IRMOS e.g. IST MUSE, OPUCE, GIANT, TEQUILLA, ACTS ATHOC and AROMA. Alcatel-Lucent R&I proposes major commitments in IRMOS on architecture, components, integration and evaluation of intelligent service aware infrastructure and middleware layer that allow the delivery of enhanced communication and information services to realise a tangible user-centric communications experience. The experience include also work in standardisation bodies like ETSI, 3GPP, IETF or W3C.
