    Good post, Cramer really looks stupid on this one. I think he forgot what he said in January he is proving to be just a showman.

  • Alcatel-Lucent Awarded the 2014 INTERNET TELEPHONY NFV Pioneer and Cloud Computing Excellence Awards

    Release date- 08072014 - Paris - Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) announced today that TMC, a global, integrated media company, has awarded CloudBand a 2014 INTERNET TELEPHONY NFV Pioneer Award and a 2014 Cloud Computing Excellence Award.

    Selected by TMC, the 2014 INTERNET TELEPHONY NFV Pioneer Award recognizes vendors that are addressing the growing market for technology that forms the building blocks of today's network virtualization, and who consistently demonstrate the advancement of NFV technologies. The Cloud Computing Excellence Award, presented by TMC's Cloud Computing Magazine, recognizes companies that have most effectively leveraged cloud computing in their efforts to bring new, differentiated offerings to market.

    To achieve NFV and cloud computing goals, service providers need an NFV platform optimized to run carrier applications and automate operational processes across a highly distributed cloud infrastructure. The CloudBand NFV Platform, now in its second generation, is designed to meet these goals. It provides an open model that assures direct access to OpenStack, while providing the added value of smart placement of applications and services, policy control, and network enabled lifecycle management. CloudBand is built as a distributed model, aggregating numerous NFV points-of-presence into a single coherent distributed and centrally managed cloud environment.

    Alcatel-Lucent has committed to the evolution of the network for cloud environments with the broadest and most comprehensive NFV portfolio and an open multi-vendor approach. CloudBand has gained significant traction with operators worldwide, through active projects with 17 providers including NTT Labs, NTT DOCOMO, Telefonica, China Mobile, and DT. CloudBand is the first NFV p

  • Alcatel-Lucent has won its first share of Vodafone’s Project Spring investment programme with a deal to provide small cell transmitters and WiFi equipment to the British group.
    Alcatel-Lucent will become a worldwide supplier of so-called “small cells” – the miniaturised mobile antennas that enable coverage of areas of high demand for mobile data services.
    Small cell transmitters are becoming an important part of Vodafone’s network in heavily populated areas such as city centres, as well as sites such as shopping centres and airports.

    No financial details were available, although those with knowledge of the deal described it as significant for Alcatel-Lucent. The award is also important for Alcatel-Lucent given it has so far been left out of Vodafone’s Project Spring investment programme.
    The investment plan is the largest in Europe, with Vodafone committing an additional £7bn in capital expenditure to upgrading its mobile and fixed-line services to next generation 4G and fibre networks. The plan, which will take its network spending to £19bn in total in the next two years, is hoped to reverse a long-term decline in revenues in European markets.
    The use of small cells enables Vodafone to bring connections closer to the end user, which creates a better mobile data service. As supplier of refer

  • The reason capex slowdown has to have a negative effect on ALU.

    Now what: According to Mizuho, Juniper's risk/reward trade-off is pretty unappealing at this point. "Over the past few weeks datapoints have become more mixed regarding domestic capex as reports AT&T may reconsidering its CY14 capex budget have surfaced (MasTec disappointed, Ciena beat)," said Hoffman. "After conducting a series of industry checks, we are now less constructive on 2H14 domestic U.S. spending as it appears both AT&T and Sprint are becoming more conservative with near-term capex." When you couple that downbeat view with Juniper's near-30 P/E, it's tough to disagree with Mizuho's cautious stance.

    Sentiment: Hold

    The reference below "various first priority pledges", could mean they want to sell off some assets that have these loan pledges attached to them.

    The total proceeds of the issuance will be used to enable the partial or full reimbursement of the Senior Secured Credit Facility of an initial principal amount of $1,750 million entered into by Alcatel-Lucent USA Inc. and secured by various first priority pledges, which could be released if the aforementioned credit is reimbursed in totality.
