alcatel-lucentSK Telecom and Bell Labs, the research arm of Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that provides a framework for research projects in next generation communications networking.

Demand for these self-optimizing networks is expected to grow as network operators aim to achieve greater efficiencies.

Through this cooperative relationship, both SK Telecom and Bell Labs can realize their complementary interests. SK Telecom expects to collaborate in core technologies such as interference control, network automation and virtualization in a multi-network environment, which will contribute to optimizing network transmission as well as reducing network maintenance costs. The project will serve as a platform for Bell Labs to deepen its capabilities in emerging technology areas and broaden the scope of its research program in Korea.
