Kelly Instrumental in Leveraging Innovation from Bell Labs and Alcatel-Lucent to Address Federal Customer Requirements

HERNDON, Va., June 25, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- LGS Innovations™, an independent subsidiary of Alcatel-Lucent (NYSE: ALU and Euronext Paris), today announced the appointment of Kevin Kelly as Chief Executive Officer. Kelly replaces Lt. General Ronald W. Iverson (Ret. USAF) who is retiring from the company after serving as its first and only CEO since inception in 2007. Kelly most recently served as Chief Operating Officer and Vice President of Corporate Strategy.

"The entire LGS team and government community owe a tremendous amount of gratitude to Gen. Iverson for his contribution to the advancement of communications technology throughout the Federal Government," said Kelly. "LGS is well-positioned to leverage its strengths in research and development and networking infrastructure to capitalize on the emerging communications requirements of Federal agencies around the globe."

Kelly is widely recognized throughout the Federal Defense and Intelligence communities for advancing LGS' role in delivering mission-critical networking and mobile communications to more effectively serve the warfighter and drive mission-success.

"With Kevin Kelly at the helm, I could not be more confident about the future direction of LGS and its ability to address the needs of our Defense, Civilian, and Intelligence agency customers," said Gen. Iverson. "He is one of the most intelligent, innovative and hard-working executives I have ever encountered, and he was the clear choice to present to the Board of Directors as my replacement, which approved him unanimously."

Kelly has been instrumental in aligning Alcatel-Lucent's products and LGS' network integration capabilities with mission-requirements, leveraging LGS' research teams and Alcatel-Lucent's $3 billion annual investment in R&D to the benefit of the government customer.

To address customer requirements to shrink the footprint of mobile communications while making them more secure, Mr. Kelly launched a Mobility Business Unit. This unit offers solutions in wireless infrastructure, including on-campus and small cell solutions, tactical communications, device management, mobile security, and managed services (which includes billing, network element provisioning, administration, and operations). One of the first solutions is lightRadio™ from Alcatel-Lucent, designed to shrink a cell-phone tower to the size of a small handheld cube.  lightRadio cuts the power required for a cellular base station as well as eliminates much of the physical infrastructure that goes along with it.
