  • CEO Rajeev just may be the smartest guy in the world. Think about it. If indeed OZO is the premier VR creation device, it is not going to be of any value unless there is an incredibly super fast and powerful NFV/SDN Cloud Network, supported by Super fast routing to make the whole thing work. Why? Because VR is a three-dimensional is HD in total 3D.... on steroids .... and to produce and stream that environment and all the data associated with it, will take networking, the likes of which is NOT available now. If this technology takes off, Nokia will be the producer and the provider and streamer of all its content...... and the competition may be left in the dust. Maybe maybe.

    Good question and an even better answer:)

    Bruno, it is possible that you are right. But you may also be wrong. Neither you nor I have access to all the information that was used to calculate the future alu/nok share percentages, to determine whether it was equitable or not. Further, we do not know if ALU had sufficient power of scale, with sufficient monetary resources to become a dominant future player in the IP market. My personal hunch is that Combes, savvy as he is, took all the factors into account and determined that the merger with the current future share percentages was in the best long term interest for ALU. Interesting that there is not publicized "golden parachute" for Combes. Could it be that there is a future block buster deal set up with Altice? Who knows? Yes, maybe the percentage should have been 60% or 65%.... but, if after the merger NOK should go to $10, your ALU Shares would be trading at $5.50. Not too shabby (though I agree that $6 or $6.50 would have been better).

    I have been accumulating ALU since it was $1.20. At that time, it went down another 25% to $.90 but I held firm. But since that time, I have remained strong on ALU and have today quite a tidy holding with an average purchase price around $2.75. And today, I continue to buy on the dips. I believe strongly in Combes and believe that his stewardship has lead to the ALU/NOK merger, and that this will be a good thing. And when it comes time to tender or not tender shares, I am indeed tendering all my shares.

    Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) has joined forces with long-standing partner HP to deliver technology solutions to enterprises providing data center networking, data replication and new storage architectures connected with IP and optical backbones.

    The solutions will allow enterprises to provide more cost-effective, reliable services more rapidly with a focus on business continuity, disaster recovery, secure data transport, data center interconnect and remote copy applications - areas that will enable enterprises to address growing data demands using a cloud architectures, with greater security and flexibility.

    These new data center solutions are based on Alcatel-Lucent’s leading IP edge platform, the Alcatel-Lucent 7750 Service Router and the Alcatel-Lucent 1830 Photonic Service Switch (PSS) family of optical products.

    The validated Alcatel-Lucent and HP solutions allow secure and synchronous data replication between data centers over long distances and at rates not previously achievable via standard storage fabric switching. The solutions have been pre-tested, integrated and are available as part of the HP Complete Program in the Americas and EMEA.

    As enterprises and service providers deploy their cloud offerings between data centers and across hybrid environments, they face challenges in scalability, flexibility and management of the data center gateway. HP Networking is expanding its portfolio of wide area network routers for large organizations with the adoption of the flagship Alcatel-Lucent 7750 Service Router. Alcatel-Lucent has also worked closely with HP to tightly integrate its industry-leading 1830 PSS optical platform. When combined with the HP 3PAR Remote Copy software it delivers synchronous replication over fiber up to 130 kilometers with encryption to reduce business risk.

    Down 10 cents in the after market

    Based on this morning's pre-market, Funky, it appears that you made a good call. The CAC is down 1.8% and ALU in france is down .05 Euros from 3.58 Euros ($4.06) to 3.53 Euros ($4.01). And this morning, in the US, the premarket price for ALU is $3.96. Clearly, the wacky price last night of $3.87 in the after-market based on a sale of 370 shares was not significant. And so, I totally concur that the original question, though not senseless, was not well thought out either.

    Good find Mich. You may note that slowly, but surely, after the merger deal, investment houses and rating agencies have more and more been coming around to raising their ratings for both ALU and NOK. Just recently, GURU focus just published and article detailing why ALU is an excellent long term buy.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy
