Alcatel-Lucent’s Developer Platform named “Most Innovative Mobile Application” at 2010 Andrew Seybold Choice Awards


Paris - Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) today announced that its cloud-based Developer Platform has been selected as this year’s Most Innovative New Application at the Andrew Seybold Choice Awards.

Introduced by Alcatel-Lucent on February 16, 2010, the Developer Platform enables service providers, MSOs and enterprises to securely open up and expose their network-based Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to more than 14 million developers globally for the creation and delivery of thousands of new compelling applications. By addressing the end-to-end lifecycles needs of developers with easier API access, application development tools, a virtual sandbox and application distribution, the Platform helps service providers build and manage developer ecosystems to speed services innovation to their subscriber customers, enable more applications to be tailored to vertical markets and ultimately drive more revenue across the value chain.

“The explosion of mobile applications development continues to impact business and society as a whole,” said Andrew Seybold, wireless and mobile communications expert. “Alcatel-Lucent’s platform brings vendors, developers and users together in new ways to accelerate future wireless services innovation.”

The Andrew Seybold Choice Awards have come to be recognized through the industry for the ability to identify cutting-edge products and services that offer innovation and impact to both wireless providers and en-users. Alcatel-Lucent was selected from a group of finalists by a panel of judges deeply versed in the prevailing issues, challenges and opportunities presented by the evolution of the technology and its markets.

“We are excited to receive this prestigious recognition for our Developer Platform,” said Johnson Agogbua, head of Application Enablement solutions at Alcatel-Lucent. “It enables service providers to monetize their networks assets and quickly introduce differentiating services to subscribers to gain a competitive edge in the marketplace. The platform also allows developers to build new functionality into their applications and significantly extend their end user reach.”

The Developer Platform is supported by an API aggregation and bundling model with an application revenue sharing business approach that benefits service providers, enterprise and developers alike. The elements are part of Alcatel-Lucent’s Application Enablement vision – combining the trusted capabilities of service providers with the speed and innovation of the Web to provide both consumers and business users with richer experiences.
