Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) today announced that it has been awarded a contract by Mobicom, a leading provider of telecommunication services in Mongolia, for the deployment of a nation-wide NGN network as well as the expansion of its existing wireless networks. Once deployed, the Alcatel-Lucent solution will provide Mobicom with the end-to-end quality of service (QoS) and secure functionality needed to deliver innovative, value-added services to their customers.
