PARIS, March 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Verizon Wireless is to deploy Alcatel-Lucent's (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) advanced data management platform throughout its network, helping to support the carrier's LTE expansion.
The Alcatel-Lucent Subscriber Data Manager (SDM), part of the company's IMS Subsystem portfolio of technologies designed to enable rich multimedia applications, will help support the expansion of Verizon's LTE services by centralizing multiple application databases.

- Working with Verizon Wireless to efficiently and cost effectively support network performance through IMS is aligned with The Shift Plan, the industrial strategy to reposition Alcatel-Lucent as a specialist vendor of IP Networking and Ultra-Broadband Access
