Alcatel-Lucent to hold media and analyst tutorial webcast on Industry & Public Sector (IPS) activities on May 20, 2008


Paris.— Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) today announced that Michael Fabian, President of Industry and Public Sector for Alcatel-Lucent’s services activities will deliver a media tutorial on the IPS market on May 20, 2008 at 3.00 PM Paris time (9 AM New York time). Michael Fabian will explain the communications needs of this sector and how Alcatel-Lucent is uniquely positioned to deliver solutions to solve its communications challenges.

“Communications is not core to the business of Industry and Public Sector enterprises, but it is critical for their operations. Whether providing internet access to passengers in high-speed trains, monitoring the transport of several barrels of oil per day in real-time over thousands of kilometres, making isolated regions more economically attractive, offering innovative e-government services and very high speed broadband to citizens, and enhancing large administrations and enterprises’ efficiency, all of these missions are achievable thanks to reliable, future-proof, and multi-service communication networks”, said Michael Fabian.

During that tutorial, Michael Fabian, will present some business cases such as the Gotthard Base Tunnel (GBT) in Switzerland. The Transtec Gotthard consortium has been awarded a contract for installation of railway infrastructure systems for the Gotthard tunnel. Upon completion, the GBT will be the longest tunnel in the world. In this project, Alcatel-Lucent is notably responsible for the turnkey delivery of the fixed network, the tunnel’s radio system, a security network for the links to the interlocking system, and a wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) network.

Transpower New Zealand is another business case that will be presented at this media tutorial. Transpower owns and operates New Zealand’s high-voltage electricity transmission network, linking electricity generators to distribution companies and major industrial users.
Alcatel-Lucent’s solution will enable Transpower to migrate all of its critical communications systems to a single, reliable, and future-proof IP/MPLS over an SDH fiber and microwave radio network, delivering ongoing operational efficiencies.
