Lucent Technologies is expanding R&D activities at its wholly owned subsidiary in Shanghai, Lucent Technologies Optical Networks (LTON). Lucent, which is recruiting researchers and developers nationwide in China, said the decision will increase its ability to deliver next-generation optical, data and access network and service solutions throughout China.
