Alcatel promises better clouds for carriers

Stephen Lawson | Nov. 18, 2011
Alcatel-Lucent is developing a cloud computing platform for carriers that aims to take full advantage of their networks to deliver guaranteed performance.

Alcatel plans to make CloudBand generally available to carriers in the first half of next year, following trial deployments starting early in the year. It's already using the technology to deliver its own hosted telecommunications services for carriers. Initially, CloudBand will depend on Alcatel network gear, but the company is working with groups such as ATIS (Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions) and the Internet Engineering Task Force on standards that would let it extend to other vendors' equipment, Skuler said.
