Alcatel-Lucent has completed the project with Gazprom neft for network transformation project in the Russian Federation


Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) today announced a successful completion of the project with Gazprom neft, Russia’s fastest-growing oil company, for the transformation of its corporate network at its oil-processing factory in the city of Omsk. Through the implementation of this new network, Gazprom neft is focused on improving employee productivity and increasing the reliability of its communications capabilities.

Gazprom neft chose Alcatel-Lucent to deliver a state-of-the-art IP communication solution which will provide IP telephony to more than 3,000 employees of the oil processing factory. Based on the Alcatel-Lucent OmniPCX Enterprise IP telephony platform, the solution includes Alcatel-Lucent’s newest VoIP handsets. All nodes of the network are interconnected to ensure a feature rich environment and to unite existing systems into a single, integrated enterprise communication platform. Alcatel-Lucent also delivered Alcatel-Lucent IP Touch phones, which provide advanced capabilities to increase employee productivity, including “dial-by-name,” call forwarding for mobility, and other advanced communications applications.

Constantin Yurganov, Head of Information technologies, autoimmunization and telecommnunication of Gazprom neft has commented: “We made our choice in favour of the Alcatel-Lucent solution due to its flexibility and high reliability. It improves employee productivity by delivering advanced communications services, while minimizing downtime. The new solution will allow our staff to communicate more effectively, while improving overall productivity.”

“We are very honoured to work with Gazprom neft on this network transformation project,” – said Ivan Makharine, Director of Alcatel-Lucent enterprise activities in CIS. “Gazprom neft is a perfect example of a forward-thinking corporation, investing in a future-proof IP based solution that was designed to fully meet their requirements.”

The contract has been signed in 2006 in cooperation with Datatel company, one of the largest system integrators in Russia and an Alcatel-Lucent authorised partner in Russia and CIS, which performed installation and integration of the project.

Implementation of this project will enable Gazprom neft to significantly enhance the organisation’s operating efficiency and raise levels of quality and employee performance.

The Alcatel-Lucent OmniPCX Enterprise is an integrated, interactive communications solution for medium-sized businesses and large corporations. The solution combines traditional telephone functions with support for Internet-based telephony and multimedia communication.
