Pelephone’s “Content Worlds” become reality with Alcatel-Lucent technology


Alcatel-Lucent 5920 Multimedia Content Manager supports music, video and multimedia services on 2.5G and 3G networks using a single platform

Paris — Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) today announced that in collaboration with Pelephone Communications, an innovative mobile operator in Israel, it has completed the deployment of the Alcatel-Lucent 5920 Multimedia Content Manager (MCM), the platform that will support Pelephone’s next generation multimedia service delivery. The operator will benefit from one single system, managing content services for the exiting CDMA/EV-DO network. The system will integrate all of the operator’s innovative content services, including marketing, merchandising, delivery and streaming of video, music and other multimedia content.

By collapsing existing independent content management systems on to a single, future-proof platform, the Alcatel-Lucent solution will enable Pelephone to significantly minimize capital and operating expenditures. Simplifying and consolidating the content management process will also enable Pelephone to rapidly introduce new services including bundling various content types into a single purchasable package. Also DRM (Digital Right Management) and maintenance will be easily managed.

Alcatel-Lucent delivered its 5920 MCM as a turnkey project, leading all phases including project management, software and application integration, installation, testing and commissioning, and maintenance.

“Pelephone is a pioneer in mobile communications in Israel, always looking for the most innovative solutions enabling rapid and efficient delivery of new services to our demanding customers,” said Guy Bauman, VP content and product of Pelephone. “Our approach is to proactively support end users, making ‘Content Worlds’ more accessible by offering personalized and affordable services.”

“As content availability and complexity grows at a break-neck pace there is a need for efficient mobile multimedia service solutions that enable the most sophisticated marketing strategies,” said Pierre Barnabé, President of Alcatel-Lucent’s activities in France, Iberia & Italy. “The Alcatel-Lucent 5920 MCM helps achieve both the goal of personalized services to the end users and the need for a scalable, open and flexible solution that increases the efficiency of the service providers.”

The Alcatel-Lucent 5920 Multimedia Content Manager enables service providers to manage and orchestrate the delivery of all their content services (applications, video, music, ringtones, information, etc.) to end users based on individual preferences, thereby integrating and enhancing the end user’s experience. It enables managing, marketing, selling and delivering content and services across various media for various market domains and is evolving into a central multi-screen content platform.
