Globalive Wireless Awards Alcatel-Lucent Multi-Million Dollar Contract to Build High-Speed 3G Mobile Network in Canada

7/29/09 - Alcatel-Lucent (NYSE: ALU) has been awarded a multi-million dollar, three-year contract to help build Globalive Wireless' new nationwide 3G mobile network in Canada.

Globalive is focused on launching a new national wireless operation, serving consumers across Canada. In 2009 Globalive was awarded spectrum licenses by Industry Canada after successfully bidding more than CDN $442 million in the government's Advanced Wireless Services auction.

"Our commitment is to provide Canadian consumers with unmatched value. For that we need future-ready technology that enables the delivery of high-capacity, cost-effective IP-based services," said Ken Campbell, Chief Executive Officer of Globalive Wireless. "We look to the experience, expertise and forward-thinking technology of Alcatel-Lucent to support our commitment to building an advanced, high-speed mobile network that will support economic development and jobs creation throughout Canada."

Alcatel-Lucent is providing an end-to-end solution and comprehensive network integration support to ensure the rapid rollout of Globalive's commercial voice, mobile broadband and multimedia service offerings. Under the agreement Alcatel-Lucent will supply Globalive with its industry-leading, LTE-ready 3G radio access network offering -- based on its multi-standard radio access solution -- including radio network controllers, node Bs (base stations) and a flexible wireless network management system. For the project Alcatel-Lucent also will provide a variety of professional services including site acquisition and construction, radio frequency network design and optimization as well as overall network planning and design.

To address Globalive's mobile backhaul requirements, Alcatel-Lucent will deploy its IP service routers, service aggregation routers and microwave packet radios, which will support the highly reliable, secure and cost-effective transport of 3G traffic and will give Globalive the ability to smoothly transition to LTE to address evolving market demands.

"Alcatel-Lucent has a proven track record for delivering high-speed wireless networks in Canada and globally. Our new 3G mobile networking solutions provide the innovation, operational excellence and cost efficiency Globalive needs to quickly build out its network and offer Canadians innovative mobile services," said Alex Giosa, President of Alcatel-Lucent business in Canada. "This contract highlights Globalive's confidence in our comprehensive solutions and local support capabilities."

Giosa noted that the Globalive deployment will leverage technology developed at Alcatel-Lucent's Ottawa research facility, which employs a large team of experienced engineers and technologists working on advanced wireless and IP technologies.

Alcatel-Lucent is a leading player in the wireless infrastructure market having deployed 350 commercial wireless networks worldwide, including 56 W-CDMA commercial networks in 37 countries. With more than 600,000 multi-standard cabinets shipped since 1999, Alcatel-Lucent's pioneering multi-standard technology base station is designed to support IP transformation and is part of our unique converged radio access network (RAN) strategy that enables operators to smoothly evolve towards future mobile broadband technologies. The company is a world leader in the design, deployment, management and integration of networks.
