Lucent to Integrate Alvarion's WiMAX-Ready Platform

Lucent Technologies plans to integrate WiMAX technology, based on the IEEE's 802.16 standard, through Alvarion's BreezeMAX line into its "Accelerate" Next Generation Communications Solutions portfolio, which includes Lucent's IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) solution. Specifically, Lucent will team with Alvarion to deliver a converged networking solution to service providers that includes the seamless interoperability of WiMAX, 3G mobile (CDMA2000 and W-CDMA/UMTS), WiFi and wireline networks. Additionally, as part of this initiative, Lucent Worldwide Services (LWS) will provide a comprehensive suite of deployment, maintenance, and professional services to support WiMAX infrastructure and applications, further extending LWS' multi-vendor services capabilities in important growth markets.
