ALCATEL-LUCENT LAUNCHES IP TRANSFORMATION CENTER IN CHENNAIAlcatel-Lucent today announced the launch of a new, state-of-the-art IP Transformation Center (IPTC) in Chennai. The first centre of its kind in the Indian sub-continent, the IPTC will develop, integrate and test end-to-end IP networking solutions for Alcatel-Lucent’s Indian and global customers as they migrate to next generation architectures.

Alcatel-Lucent’s India IPTC enables service providers to design, test and integrate their solutions in a risk-free environment, as if it were their own network. It helps them shorten the IP transformation trajectory and their time-to-market while allowing them to keep costs under control and focus on serving their customers.

The IPTC at Chennai hosts about 50 technologies. The IPTC is networked with Alcatel-Lucent’s existing IPTCs and network integration centers located in Antwerp, Belgium; Singapore; Murray Hill, Naperville and Plano in the US, as well as with multiple R&D labs world-wide, including India.

These centres, which share knowledge, resources and best practices, help service providers execute their IP Transformation projects. Vivek Mohan, managing director, Alcatel-Lucent India said: “To survive in a hyper-competitive environment, service providers need to rapidly introduce new services, reduce operational costs, and enhance the customer experience. Alcatel-Lucent’s IPTC will help service providers achieve these goals and shorten their IP transformation process while mitigating potential risks in areas such as network design, end-to-end integration, process re-engineering and customer migration. This new facility will firmly establish Alcatel-Lucent in India as the leading network integrator locally and globally.”

Alcatel-Lucent, a market leader in IP transformation, has strategic relationships with major service providers undergoing IP transformation, giving it an unrivaled track record of over 40 projects worldwide. In India, Alcatel-Lucent’s R&D activities rely on 2,700 engineers and scientists working on 100,000 square feet of lab space. Alcatel-Lucent has established a Bell Labs research centre in Bangalore and has major software development centres at Gurgaon, Noida, Chennai, Bangalore and Hyderabad. Alcatel-Lucent has also a joint venture with CDOT (Government of India R&D Telecom organization) based in Chennai for the development of broadband wireless access solutions like WiMAX.
