Alcatel-Lucent to address exploding demand for new applications

Feb 19, 2013 (TELECOMWORLDWIRE via COMTEX) -- Alcatel-Lucent (NYSE: ALU) and Belgium's leading service provider, Belgacom, have announced plans to expand its network infrastructure as it continues to address the exponential growth in bandwidth demand driven by demand from customers, businesses, data centers and content platforms.


Belgium is home to a large number of international organizations, including the European Commission. In deploying Alcatel-Lucent's Extensible Routing System (XRS), Belgacom will be better able to handle the data demand created by such institutions as well as residential customers, making use of significantly more capacity to meet current and future bandwidth demands being driven by video, cloud-based applications and immersive multimedia delivered across an array of increasingly capable devices.

The XRS system also takes up less physical space and consumes dramatically less power than alternative routers, delivering cost and efficiency benefits to operators like Belgacom.

Alcatel-Lucent is a leading innovator in the field of networking and communications technology, products and services. The company is home to Bell Labs, one of the world's foremost research centers, responsible for breakthroughs that have shaped the networking and communications industry.
