Enterprise Business Update - Regulatory Approval & Market Success


At a glance
  • Important regulatory approvals have been completed
  • Q2 sales grew double digits quarter over quarter
  • Analysts recognize several communications & network solutions
  • 6900 and 6860 continue to exceed sales expectations

We have made significant progress on many fronts in the transformation of our Enterprise business.

The transition team continues to progress successfully through a variety of regulatory and anti-trust processes in many countries. We have received several important clearances enabling us to move forward in our transition to becoming an independent business. These approvals demonstrate that all data and information privacy security and confidentiality measures have been considered; there is no better answer for those concerned about this area than sharing these achievements.

On the business front, we continued to improve during the second quarter compared to the first quarter. Our activity grew overall by double digits over the previous period, meaning that we expect to beat the market once again. This should be confirmed by the market reports when released.

There were many Q2 achievements at a solution level as well, including:

  • Cutting edge Personal Cloud solutions are being delivered to the market
  • Strong demand for the new IP Touch terminal product line has generated over 100,000 shipments in a few short months
  • OpenTouch has received multiple honors from Frost & Sullivan and TMC, and nearly 1000 OpenTouch installations have been successfully completed in many different businesses
  • Our wireless network business once again enjoyed double-digit growth
  • Demand for the OmniSwitch 6900 continues to exceed expectations
  • The recently launched OmniSwitch 6860 has captured a significant number of new customers and a “very strong” endorsement from Current Analysis

This is performance we can all be proud of! It is a strong signal to the market – Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise products and solutions are more competitive and innovative than ever. 

Thank you for your commitment, passion and execution in making such positive things happen.
