Alcatel-Lucent Wins Database Contract from Verizon Wireless
Published on: 4th Mar 2014
Alcatel Lucent says that it has won a database management contract from USA based Verizon Wireless to centralize multiple application databases used to manage its LTE network.
Alcatel-Lucent is providing its Subscriber Data Manager (SDM), part of the company's IMS Subsystem portfolio of technologies.
Verizon has chosen a subscriber data management solution that also includes Alcatel-Lucent's SDM, Motive Authentication, Authorization and Accounting Server, Centralized Operations Manager, and SDM Expert products as well as the VoLTE feature set.
Alcatel-Lucent was named as a key IMS supplier for Verizon Wireless' 4G LTE network when it was announced in 2009 and has been providing multiple IMS services since that time.
Steve Marino, Vice President of Alcatel-Lucent's Verizon Customer Team, said: "Alcatel-Lucent has enjoyed a longstanding relationship that dates back to the inception of Verizon Wireless. We know the network. That Verizon Wireless selected our SDM to help streamline network operations speaks highly of their confidence in our technology, capabilities and experience."
Financial terms were not disclosed.
