Alcatel-Lucent in standardisation Frank Van der Putten , Emmanuel Darmois, Bernard Sales 15 December 2010
Standardisation: a strategic tool for innovation There are 500 Alcatel-Lucent experts i n more than 100 standards organizations We hold key positions in 3GPP, 3GPP2, IEEE, IETF, ITU, ATIS, CCSA, ETSI, TIA, Broadband Forum, OMA, … Work with these bodies is fully integrated into quality plans and product development cycles T hought leadership in BB Access and Services, Business grade IP services, Fixed-mobile solutions, NGN & Applications, Data and Optics blend, Mobile Radio
Alcatel-Lucent Major Goals in Standards Create standards that satisfy customer needs and stimulate growth of communications markets. Develop standards-compliant products and bring them to market quickly. Bring innovative technological solutions from research status into standards development. Alcatel-Lucent views standards activities as important opportunities to interact with other industry participants and, in particular, with customers to satisfy near- and long-term needs for interoperability, open systems, multi-vendor compatibility, and safe and efficient operation.
Alcatel-Lucent Participation in SDOs As a networking and technology-oriented company, we work with organizations whose specifications Impact products that are important to our customers Strongly influence long-term directions e.g. forward-looking products, creating or expanding markets As a global company, we are proactively involved in a wide variety of International, regional, and national standards bodies, Consortia and forums, Trade associations We work closely with government agencies that establish regulation and requirements for telecommunications products. We actively participate in various global forums to eliminate technical barriers to trade.

Conclusions Lessons learned from ASDL/VDSL ITU-T embraced DSL as the next generation technology for broadband access (following voice band modems) ADSL has been the trigger for network transformation and broadband access towards an end-to-end multi-service packet network, reusing installed telephony wires for last mile ADSL/Broadband Forum took technology and networking to a higher level with architecture, testing and management, convergence with fiber and with mobile Keys to success Research/Innovation handover to business units Early (research) and constant (from both research and business units) investment in Standards Innovation and standards go hand in hand Big market players need to be big in standards
