Alcatel-Lucent receives Unified Communications® magazine’s 2007 Product of the Year Award


Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) today announced that Technology Marketing Corporation’s (TMC®) Unified Communications magazine has named the Alcatel-Lucent 8610 My Instant Communicator as a recipient of its 2007 Product of the Year Award.

My Instant Communicator is a leading edge multimedia and multisession unified communications product that provides an integrated user experience across all communications options and across all devices. It combines voice, video and data services through a single, intuitive user interface. My Instant Communicator empowers the users and teams thanks to presence based communication and true media blending capabilities which let you choose the best media at a time. One scenario is during a meeting, a user with a connected laptop could: answer an incoming call in chat mode to quickly respond to a colleague; divert the call to a mobile phone and leave the room to personally speak with an important customer; route a less urgent call to a colleague or personal voice mail.

“Alcatel-Lucent is pleased that My Instant Communicator has been honored by Unified Communications this year. My Instant Communicator supports the dynamic enterprise by simplifying real-time communications, connecting people for improved collaboration and knowledge sharing regardless of their work styles – which leads to improved business performance,” said Tom Burns, Chief Operating Officer of Alcatel-Lucent’s enterprise activities.

“Alcatel-Lucent has proven it is committed to quality and excellence while addressing real needs in the marketplace. Unified Communications is pleased to bestow a 2007 Product of the Year Award to the OmniTouch 8610 My Instant Communicator,” said Rich Tehrani, TMC President and Editor-in-Chief of Unified Communications magazine. “We’re proud to honor the hard work and accomplishments of Alcatel-Lucent and look forward to more innovative solutions from the company in the future.”

A full list of Product of the Year winners will be published in the March 2008 issue of Unified Communications magazine, external .
