Connect to the ultra-connected society

The ultra-connected society brings with it challenges of
great scale and complexity. It goes beyond billions of users connecting multiple devices. Single macro cells become multiple small cells. Mobile networks become extensions of fixed networks. Network traffic increases 100-fold. Open, converged networks replace closed networks. Billions of cloud services replace billions of app downloads. And the lowest cost per byte actually means the lowest cost per 100 bytes.

Alcatel-Lucent is ready to help you meet these new challenges with our Ultra-Broadband solutions. We provide lightning
fast, fixed and wireless broadband access, backed by our high-performance IP networking expertise. Our networks offer the best performance and efficiency. Enable the lowest cost and power per bit. And let customers connect seamlessly, from multiple devices, on any kind of network.

But our solutions go far beyond broadband access, because the ultra-connected society is driving a whole new way of using your networks — and doing business.

That’s why we also help you capture new opportunities, by extending our IP capabilities all the way from the access node to the cloud — where networks are software defined, network functions are virtualized, and you can partner with leading service creators. These capabilities give you the flexibility and agility you need to meet the ever-changing demands of the ultra-connected society. And they help you transform your own infrastructure to reduce costs, gain the efficiency and scale of the cloud, and move successfully into the future.
