BT Selects Alcatel-Lucent to Help Migrate Customers to 21CN

BT has selected Alcatel-Lucent to support the automation of end-user customer migration from its legacy telephone network to the 21st Century Network (21CN). Specifically, Alcatel-Lucent will assist BT in ensuring that its 21CN Migration Control Centre (MCC), which oversees the upgrade of customers from the legacy network to the new IP network, is operational and ready to meet the challenges of migrating 20 million customers over to the new all-IP network.

Alcatel-Lucent will also develop a workflow tool that will provide the management tracking of deployment activities associated with the customer upgrade process, enabling BT to maintain its aggressive deployment schedule and manage the transition of over 5,500 telephone exchanges.

Alcatel-Lucent also serves as a strategic supplier for several 21CN projects.
