Alcatel-Lucent Builds 4G Consumer Communications Solution

Alcatel-Lucent has developed an application for 4G that integrates voice and video-calling, instant messaging and group calling and across a variety of devices - smartphone, tablet or PCs.

Alcatel-Lucent's new 4G Consumer Communications Solution uses flash-capable web browser technology to enable consumers to connect via video using virtually any PC or mobile internet device, so they don't need to figure out whether the person they are calling is using a compatible video service or device as they do today. Significantly, the solution leverages Alcatel-Lucent's IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) to ensure the quality of experience for various communications and social services.

Sandip Mukerjee, President, Advanced Communications Solutions at Alcatel-Lucent said: "By greatly simplifying access to the range of available communication formats and devices, Alcatel-Lucent's 4G Consumer Communications solution creates a ‘new conversation experience' that makes every contact as easy and reliable as a voice call. This improved experience will be welcomed by anyone who has ever suffered the frustration of juggling the multiple ways they connect with the people in their lives. Now subscribers just place the call in whatever format they choose and enjoy the service."
