      ​Network On Demand is now a thing

      Cloud. Arguably, THE biggest buzzword in the technology industry of all time. So when would you say the first cloud was deployed?

      Your enterprise network – on demand

      Today, companies and firms, whatever their size or business model, need to stay connected. However, the cost of their network equipment is often not in line with their real use.

      It's likely that you are tightly restricted by the very infrastructure that is supposed to support your business and help you succeed.  It’s supposed to make your life simpler, not harder.

      Maybe, it is a simple as changing from buying a network infrastructure and having to keep updating it, to using someone else’s that is expandable upon demand, but costs you little while not in use. Changing your budget from capital expenses to one of operational ...

      Alcatel Lucent Enterprise brings pay per use to the network

      It seems like we can buy almost anything as a service today. Servers, storage, applications and collaboration can all be purchased using an “as a service” model. Recently Sprint introduced both Workplace and Mobility as a service to add to the growing portfolio of consumption-based products. In our consumer lives the Amazon button turns consumer goods into a service. The one piece of technology that’s still difficult to buy as a service is the network.

      Interop the buildup to something exciting!

      A week out from Interop and no one is resting. These busy times make for a flurry of activity.
