France's Hub télécom Chooses Alcatel-Lucent for IMS

Hub télécom, a French operator and part of the Aéroports de Paris group, has selected Alcatel-Lucent is to supply and integrate a complete IMS (IP Multimedia Subsystem) solution. The solution will enrich Hub télécom's service offer with a wide range of high value-added convergent services to companies. Hub télécom anticipates the commercial launch of its IMS services in 2009.

Hub télécom is the first operator to incorporate the new Alcatel-Lucent 5060 IP Call Server into its core network. The 5060 ICS relies on an IMS platform, together with shared hardware and software components, to provide advanced multimedia services. Alcatel‑Lucent's complete turnkey IMS solution also includes all "Centrex IMS" functions. Conferences, presence, instant messaging and collaborative work are all enabled by Centrex IMS and the MMIC brick.

"Following the deployment of a turnkey broadband access network to cover the airports of Paris- Charles de Gaulle, Paris-Orly and Paris-Le Bourget, the provision and implementation of our complete IMS solution is a further step for Alcatel-Lucent and Hub télécom", stated Pierre Barnabé, President of Alcatel-Lucent's activities in France, Iberia & Italy. "The transformation of its network will enable Hub télécom to establish itself as a national operator of all-IP services".http://www.alcatel-lucent.comttp://www.hubtelecom.com
