Neuf Cegetel selects Alcatel-Lucent’s Open Services Platform for Intelligent Network services


Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU)announced today that Neuf Cegetel, France’s leading alternative service provider, has deployed its open services platform for the delivery of Intelligent Network (IN) services. Alcatel-Lucent is also providing integration services to support the project.

The Alcatel-Lucent open services platform, integrated with Neuf Cegetel’s service platform, enables the operator to offer innovative services (free of charge waiting time for the hotline, split charging and premium rate services, outsourced call center, personal universal telephony and Internet callback), to generate additional revenue. Neuf Cegetel customers have been enjoying free of charge waiting time on the operator’s hotline since February 2007.

As a result of the deployment, Neuf Cegetel will also be able to transfer its existing traditional services (freephone number/free calling, universal access and premium rate services) to a single open services platform provided by Alcatel-Lucent, allowing seamless evolution to the new NGN/IMS multimedia services.

With the introduction of the Alcatel-Lucent open services platform, Neuf Cegetel can also offer local number portability, optimize call routing as well as handle high levels of traffic.

“By integrating the new IN service platform, we can offer our customers new services while making substantial savings”, said Pierre-Alain Allemand, general manager for the network division of Neuf Cegetel. “It is also essential to deploy a solution that is compatible with VoIP technology.”

“The Alcatel-Lucent solution allows Neuf Cegetel to benefit directly from innovative services and to migrate to NGN/IMS services,” added said Olivier Picard, President of Alcatel-Lucent’s Europe and South activities. “In addition, with the support of Alcatel-Lucent Neuf Cegetel can now better serve the needs of enterprises, creating new revenue streams.”
