Lucent to buy Mobilitec to boost mobile content delivery offering

Lucent Technologies is to acquire privately held Mobilitec, a provider of content management software for wireless service providers.
Lucent says it intends to integrate the Mobilitec mPower product into its application products "to enable intelligent, personalised context-aware content delivery and targeted advertising" enhancing its portfolio of IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) and Mobility (3G) applications. According to Lucent, Mobilitec has already sold th mPower platform to 20 cellular operators who between them have more than 300 million subscribers. These include Vodafone, Orange Israel and M1.

The Mobilitec mPower product is claimed to provide a single platform that supports all content and media types, such as firewall and security software, ring tones, games, music and videos. It "manages the complete content life cycle by offering software for processing submissions from a content provider, content management in catalogues, digital rights management, rendering to ensure content is formatted for the subscriber's wireless device, a Web-style page that can serve as the carrier's "storefront," and a delivery mechanism."

Lucent says that mPower will make it possible for service providers to offer special promotions on their Web storefronts that are personalised based on content, profiles, preferences, location and availability, which can be targeted by device or user segment, and forwarded by recipients to their buddy lists to support viral marketing.

Mobilitec, which has 70 employees worldwide and R&D in Israel, will become part of Lucent's applications business and the mPower product will be marketed as part of Lucent's applications portfolio and service delivery platform (SDP).

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
