Paris, December 1, 2006 – Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) today unveiled the new brand mark that will represent the world’s largest communications supplier. The new brand mark visually signifies the two organizations flowing into each other, demonstrates an embrace of the respective cultures and symbolizes the company’s vision of enriching people’s lives by transforming the way the world communicates.
