Verizon Wireless has selected Alcatel-Lucent’s Subscriber Data Manager (SDM), which is part of the company’s IMS Subsystem portfolio of technologies to support the expansion of its 4G LTE services. The new SDM will be centralizing multiple application databases across Verizon’s 4G LTE and 3G networks. Verizon has selected a full suite of subscriber data management solution from Alcatel-Lucent that includes the SDM, Motive Authentication, Authorization and Accounting Server, Centralized Operations Manager, and SDM Expert products as well as the VoLTE feature set.
Mike Haberman, Vice President-Network Technology, said: “As Verizon Wireless continues to grow, we are focused on operating our network as efficiently as possible. Savings in power consumption, footprint reduction and simplified network operation and maintenance also are critical. Alcatel-Lucent’s SDM supports these goals.”
Steve Marino, Vice President of Alcatel-Lucent’s Verizon Customer Team, said: “Alcatel-Lucent has enjoyed a longstanding relationship that dates back to the inception of Verizon Wireless. We know the network. That Verizon Wireless selected our SDM to help streamline network operations speaks highly of their confidence in our technology, capabilities and experience."
