Additional information about Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise Forum 2009
The main topics at this year’s event are built around helping businesses to Become a Dynamic Enterprise, one in which communications-enabled business capabilities supported by innovative technology and applications from Alcatel-Lucent help companies generate new revenue and reduce costs.

New technology/Cool Apps
Alcatel-Lucent will demonstrate recently introduced touchatag technology, an innovation from Alcatel-Lucent Bell Labs being commercialized by Alcatel-Lucent Ventures where the system uses near-field communication technology to connect objects with online applications. Using this technology, visitors at Forum will be able to simply touch specialized badges to receive audio descriptions of selected demonstrations through their mobile phones. Rather than toting around plastic bags full of brochures and white papers, documentation relating to demos and conferences can be collected with touchatag and stored in a “digital bag” accessible through a personal Internet page.

Additional highlights will include demonstrations of the award-winning OmniAcesss 3500 Nonstop Laptop Guardian mobility solution, new applications for the company’s unified communications portfolio, and customer testimonials of successfully deployed communications solutions linking the network, people, process and knowledge.
