Ultra broadband businesses which are keen on capitalizing the demand for digital services will be interested in the latest initiative from Accenture and Alcatel-Lucent. Both companies are joining hands to set up the Accenture Alcatel-Lucent Business Group which will be developing customer care operations for large enterprises and communications service providers(CSPs), especially players offering a wide range of advanced digital services over their networks. Accenture is a global management consulting company with more than 305,000 employees in more than 120 countries while Alcatel-Lucent, a global communications giant, offers a wide range of products and innovations in IP and cloud networking and ultra-broadband fixed and wireless solutions.

According to a joint from both companies, the strategic alliance will enable large enterprises and CSPs to implement ultra-broadband solutions using cost-effective means while catering for the increasing demand for data on their networks. Via the alliance, both companies will jointly provide solutions and services for customer care for mobile devices based on Alcatel-Lucent’s Motive line of products and explore small cell wireless network solutions with a focus on integrating cellular technology and Wi-Fi between service providers and large enterprises.

The joint initiative will enable both companies to leverage a common vehicle to deliver unique value to clients by combining Alcatel-Lucent’s leading IP networking software platforms and products with Accenture’s systems integration and transformation capabilities. 

"Consumers and businesses expect any network they are on to provide sophisticated services that support multiple devices, combined with fast, reliable access. Our collaboration with Accenture is strategic to our growth as we work to enable our clients to deliver on those expectations. By combining our outstanding IP platforms with Accenture’s consulting, systems integration, delivery, and process optimization skills, we will be well-positioned to significantly and measurably improve the world’s communication experience.”
