Alcatel-Lucent to unveil 4G technology to switch between voice and video-calling easily

Alcatel-Lucent announced that it is introducing 4G Consumer Communications Solution, a new
technology to switch between voice and video-calling, instant messaging and
group calling and across a variety of devices smartphone, tablet or PC at
the touch of a button.



Alcatel-Lucent’s new 4G Consumer Communications Solution makes it easier to reach friends or
family by eliminating the need to find out what device, service provider or
application they might be available on at the time of getting in contact.



Subscribers are provided with access to a unified contact list that establishes a single
point with which to connect to people, regardless of where they are or what
device they’re using. The use of flash-capable web browser technology enables
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.



“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,” said Sandip Mukerjee, president, Advanced Communications
Solutions at Alcatel-Lucent.



The 4G Consumer Communications Solution improves the experience of multitasking while
connected to a 4G network, providing unique features to assure the performance
of particular services. Both voice and video are delivered in high definition
(HD) giving them a level of quality and immediacy far superior than what is
typically available today.



At the heart of the 4G Consumer Communications solution is Alcatel-Lucent’s IP Multimedia
Subsystem (IMS). IMS is the open standards architecture that enables any kind
of multimedia or telephony access between any kind of device, either fixed or
broadband, serving as a hub for multimedia communications in 4G networks.
