Paris, /PRNewswire/ — Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) is helping operators of 4G mobile broadband networks create a new conversation experience for their subscribers by introducing a technology innovation that makes it easy to switch between voice and video-calling, instant messaging and group calling and across a variety of devices – smartphone, tablet or PC – at the touch of a button.
Alcatel-Lucent’s new 4G Consumer Communications Solution makes it easier to reach friends or family by eliminating the need to find out what device, service provider or application they might be available on at the time of getting in contact. Subscribers are provided with access to a unified contact list that establishes a single point with which to connect to people, regardless of where they are or what device they’re using. The use of flash-capable web browser technology enables consumers to connect via video using virtually any PC or mobile internet device, so they don’t need to figure out whether the person they are calling is using a compatible video service or device as they do today.
Alcatel-Lucent is involved in trials and deployments of this solution with numerous leading service providers worldwide.
