The international telecommunications group today unveiled products that modernize the global backbone of the Internet to deal with the new era of video and cloud-based services. In a similar way to telephone exchanges controlling the flow of voice traffic and communications, Internet Protocol (IP) core routers control the flow of data and video traffic in metropolitan areas and cities, across national network backbones and in the global Internet.Rapidly rising demand for online video and data is being driven by smartphones, tablets, connected TVs and other devices, and enabled by faster copper, fiber and wireless broadband access. These dynamics are forcing network operators to accelerate capacity upgrades in the core of their networks. At the same time, the emergence of cloud-based services and personalized content is driving the need for more flexibility in these networks to quickly adapt to the requirements of consumers and businesses. Ben Verwaayen, Chief Executive of Alcatel-Lucent, said: "The new digital economy demands constant and rapid evolution of the networks that manage and deliver data traffic, connecting the hand of consumers with their content and applications in the cloud. Our market entry is the data equivalent of revolutionizing telephone exchanges. It will enable our customers to optimize the delivery of Internet video, gaming, photo sharing and data-hungry business applications." Speaking at Alcatel-Lucent's annual technology symposium, Mr. Verwaayen said the new technologies had been pioneered by the company's fast-growing IP division, which has already secured more than 25 percent of the market for service provider 'edge routers' – the systems that network operators deploy to manage broadband connections and service quality for residential and business users.
