Alcatel Market Opportunities, Market Forecasts, and Market Strategies, 2005-2011

Alcatel is uniquely positioned to address the evolving communications networks. Driving forces in communications and telecommunications markets relate to the rapid adoption of mobile communications technology and infrastructure. The convergence of communication onto one IP based network infrastructure has an impact on market, technology, and competitive forces. The convergence of DWDM transport and optical access to the home is a further market force.

Global information and communications technology is achieving a revolution in its potential impact. In the year 2005, telecommunications has become the engine of the global economy, providing a market thrust for supply chain efficiency, flat fee worldwide voice communications, and exchange of information between partners.
The Alcatel 7750 service router delivers Ethernet connectivity smoothly and securely between organizations with multiple LAN sites. The simplicity and ubiquity of Ethernet make it an easy service to roll out, immediately enabling enterprises a fully connected, anywhere-to-anywhere network.

By leveraging the service router MPLS features, a national VPLS service that is highly available and responds to the bandwidth needs required by the customer is possible. VPLS addresses enterprise customer requirements by enriching VPN service mix with Ethernet.

Reducing customer churn is a priority. Giving service providers the tools to stay ahead of customer demand is what Alcatel brings to the table. Alcatel IP activities relate to technology and deployment with VPLS, thus providing a viable solution for managed communications services that increases revenue, reduces costs and ultimately improves customer satisfaction.

Alcatel VPLS solution permits businesses to connect multiple sites as if they were one large local area network. They can exchange data without the expensive, onerous requirement of building a new physical network.
The Alcatel telecommunications markets have shifted to become communications markets. This is the result of convergence of voice and data networks to digital transport of voice, video, and data signals. Transport over existing TDM infrastructure is being replaced with transport over IP infrastructure.

The move to digital signal transport has bought significant diversity to the markets. Companies that failed to embrace new technology have had significant market declines. Alcatel has had enormous success, dominating digital subscriber loop technology (DSL). Alcatel is positioned to leverage its presence in access DSL markets to bring systems integration and new services for carriers.

Alcatel is focused on the continued enhancement of its IP portfolio in order to meet the diverse needs of its customer base and ensure high customer satisfaction. Alcatel is a leading provider of IP solutions. 70 service providers in 30 countries have selected the Alcatel IP portfolio.

Worldwide telecommunications service provider equipment market forecasts indicate that markets at $2.2 billion in 2004 are anticipated to reach $25.5 billion by 2010. Strong growth is anticipated as wireline networks are used to provide voice over IP, video conferencing, supply chain business process information transport, and general Internet protocol signal transport.
