Alcatel-Lucent to Introduce New Features to its Velocix Content Delivery Network Solution to Enable Pay-TV Providers to Cope with the Explosion of IP Video Traffic

Alcatel-Lucent announced that it will introduce new features to its Velocix Content Delivery Network solution to enable pay-TV operators to better manage their networks and set a new standard for the customer experience of IP video services. As operators cope with the ever-increasing amount of IP-based video traffic, the Velocix CDN offers a number of improvements which take advantage of innovations in virtualization, as well as tighter integration with IP infrastructure to accelerate the adoption of cloud networking for IP video services. The Velocix Virtual CDN decouples the software that controls and routes traffic on a network from the physical infrastructure that provides compute and storage resources. This greatly reduces the time needed to install or expand the CDN. Virtualization also gives operators the agility to instantly create a new CDN cache in case of a hardware failure, minimizing any potential disruption in quality of service. The Velocix Virtual CDN joins the Alcatel-Lucent network functions virtualization portfolio announced earlier this year to enable network automation and efficient use of resources for rapid scaling up and down of services. Additional features to the Velocix platform are also being announced, and include: Coupled with a brand new user interface and even more flexible reports, the world-class reporting capability of the Velocix CDN has been extended to give operators greater visibility of the traffic flowing through the network without increasing any additional latency or load. Patented Bell Labs techniques are used to measure the quality of video streamed to customers without the need for network probes or for installing software on customers' devices. Integration with the network routing control plane enables the CDN to learn automatically from changes in the IP infrastructure and optimize the cache selection accordingly. The Velocix Universal Network Application Programming Interface also enables unprecedented integration with external systems to develop customized applications for network configuration, content management and reporting. Velocix proxy language provides a powerful way to dynamically control how content is cached and processed.

Alcatel-Lucent Introduces New Enterprise Small Cell Device Which Allows Operators to Extend Superior 3G, 4G LTE and Wi-Fi Connectivity

Alcatel-Lucent announced that it will introduce its breakthrough new Enterprise Small Cell device at the beginning of 2015. In collaboration with Qualcomm Technologies Inc. (QTI), Alcatel-Lucent is developing a small cell solution that will allow operators to extend superior 3G, 4G LTE and Wi-Fi connectivity and coverage into the office for in-building customers. The rapid development of the solution has led the company to extend its plans to include LTE and multi-standard residential cells. Providing seamless connectivity and high performance to wireless subscribers inside of buildings is a growing challenge, exacerbated by the continued adoption of smart mobile devices which are expected to provide seamless experiences for corporate and personal applications. The new 9962 Multi-Standard Enterprise Cell, developed in a collaboration between Alcatel-Lucent and Qualcomm Technologies, allows operators to meet their existing business customer needs to deliver in-building wireless services to support continued growth in data traffic and VoLTE service. This is the first small cell of its type to support both 3G and 4G LTE connectivity through a single chipset with key features like carrier aggregation. The Qualcomm chipset on which the 9962 is based--the FSM9955--also provides the ability to migrate the radio access technologies from 3G to 4G. Alcatel-Lucent chose the FSM9955 chipset because it is designed to enable low-power, plug-and-play, small form factor small cells that are software configurable to support a mix of 3G, 4G and Wi-Fi technologies. The new small cell is in customer labs and will be generally available in early 2015. In addition to the in-building challenge, wireless operators continue to face the challenge of providing cellular coverage and capacity in the home. 3G femto solutions have long been used to improve in-home coverage. As VoLTE becomes more prevalent in wireless networks, with uninterrupted coverage expected in the home, it requires an LTE femto solution for the home be made available to provide a ubiquitous user experience. Alcatel-Lucent expects multi-standard and LTE-only solutions for the home to be generally available in 2015, and is utilizing accelerated development methods by leveraging its efforts currently underway for the 9962 Multi-Standard Enterprise cell.
