The new technology makes it easy to switch between voice and video-calling, instant messaging and group calling and across a variety of devices – smartphone, tablet or PC – at the touch of a button.
How? Alcatel-Lucent is helping operators of 4G mobile broadband networks create a new conversation experience for their subscribers by introducing its technology.
Alcatel-Lucent’s new 4G Consumer Communications Solution makes it easier to reach friends or family by eliminating the need to find out what device, service provider or application they might be available on at the time of getting in contact.
Subscribers are provided with access to a unified contact list that establishes a single point with which to connect to people, regardless of where they are or what device they’re using.
The use of flash-capable web browser technology enables consumers to connect via video using virtually any PC or mobile internet device, so they don’t need to figure out whether the person they are calling is using a compatible video service or device as they do today.
The solution also improves the experience of multitasking while connected to a 4G network, providing unique features to assure the performance of particular services. Both voice and video are delivered in high definition (HD) giving them a level of quality and immediacy far superior than what is typically available today, according to the company.
Alcatel-Lucent is involved in trials and deployments of this solution with leading service providers worldwide.
