    OLast week I had the opportunity to spend a few days with the Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise (ALE) management team in New Orleans. Jack Chen, ALE’s CEO laid out the company’s strategy and plans for 2017 while making it clear it needs to return shareholder value, which requires it to be highly focused. In 2016, the company worked on making sure it had the components and plans in place for executing on a vertical focus, cloud components, and a CPaaS platform (communication platform as a service) in 2017. ALE has set a course for 2017 in which it can be differentiated and grow, but it won’t be trying to be all things to all companies nor will it chase every new trend that bubbles up.

    In 3G, mobile core was very bulky and complicated. When designing LTE, the 3GPP tackled the complexity by collapsing several functions and simplifying the overall architecture that was renamed evolved packet core (EPC). It was actually Starent Networks, acquired by Cisco in 2009, that pioneered the design of a purpose-built packet core platform from scratch involving more and more software rather than repurposing existing router components to make a GPRS gateway support node (GGSN), paving the way for what is now compact EPC mainstream.
