Bell Labs Launches Consulting Division to Advise Industry on Path to Network of 2020

Bell Labs announced it has launched a discrete consulting division that is committed to apply deep, thoughtful analysis, hands-on experience and sophisticated techo-economic modeling tools to some of the key challenges facing the IT and communications networking industry. The new Bell Labs Consulting group brings together a multi-disciplinary team of Bell Labs scientists, technologists, modelers and services and solutions experts to perform objective analyses and to provide actionable insights and recommendations, with expertise in a wide-range of technical fields including: SDN, NFV, cloud, wireless, fixed access, optical networking and IP routing, new revenue models, and optimized operations as well as 'vertical' industries ranging from defense communications and private-sector networking to utilities and railways. In addition to these baseline challenges, Bell Labs Consulting will also specialize in work surrounding five key transformational areas of focus: The Emergence of the New Enterprise, The Rise of the Machine, The Confluence of Networks, The Move to the Edge Cloud, and The Era of Cognitive Operations.

Freescale Semiconductor and Bell Labs Expand Long-Term Partnership in Both Commercial and Research Endeavors

Freescale Semiconductor and Bell Labs announce they are expanding a long-term partnership in both commercial and research endeavors. As part of the expansion, the companies are collaborating on a range of new initiatives intended to drive further innovation for the world's increasingly virtualized networks. Among the most innovative projects is research and development targeting the evolution of the wireless access network towards 5G, and the convergence between wireline and wireless technologies. Specifically, the companies will collaborate to create an industry-first universal access device that can flexibly be used for any combination of wireline and wireless connections. The longstanding partnership between Freescale and Alcatel-Lucent has produced novel solutions that help leading mobile operators differentiate and win with base station deployments offering exceptional throughput, optimal user density and outstanding power efficiency. As the Internet of grows the number of network endpoints, boosting throughput and enhancing quality of service become even more important. This is where it intend to focus moving forward, as it continues its fruitful partnership with Alcatel-Lucent and Bell Labs.

Bell Labs Releases an Updated Version of its G.W.A.T.T. Application

Bell Labs released an updated version of its G.W.A.T.T. application, the unique tool designed to help operators plan for the energy consumption and efficiency of their networks. Version 2.0 of G.W.A.T.T. (Global 'What if' Analyzer of NeTwork Energy ConsumpTion) offers greater flexibility in the way operators model their network evolution. It will also allow them to better understand the impact on network energy consumption, cost and carbon footprint from greater use of new technologies, such as SDN and NFV, as well as high-bandwidth video and gaming applications. Increased energy consumption is a key challenge for the Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) industry. Network energy bills represent more than 10% of operators' operational expenses. Updates to the application include: A more comprehensive method of modeling the energy impact of introducing SDN and NFV virtualization technologies. A way to model specific high-bandwidth apps such as video and gaming. The ability to change traffic growth assumptions based on changing market conditions and an operator's own network intelligence. The ability to model phased network upgrades, selecting parts of the network to see the impact of a phased upgrade where before operators could only select 100% technology replacement. Through G.W.A.T.T. 2.0 operators are given a view of the entire network, showing the impact of new technologies and high-bandwidth services across the home and enterprise networks, the wireless and fixed access networks, the metro, edge and core backbone networks and the service core and data centers. G.W.A.T.T. 2.0 shows power consumption at each point. This allows operators to see 'hot spots' where most energy is consumed within the network. It can also identify how different technologies and network evolutions can make a network more energy efficient.
