Lucent to resell Cisco routers to mobile network operators

Lucent last week announced it will resell Cisco routers to mobile network operators. Under the 3-year, nonexclusive arrangement, Lucent will resell Cisco’s Packet Data Serving Node, which lets Code Division Multiple Access 2000 operators provide mobile data access to the Internet and corporate intranets and extranets; Gateway General Packet Radio Service Support Node, which lets GSM and Universal Mobile Telecommunications Systems operators deploy high-quality mobile voice and data services; and MGX8000 Media Gateway and ATM aggregation products, which let mobile operators provision voice-over-IP and voice-over-ATM service on their packet core networks.

Lucent late last year announced plans to establish partnerships in IP/Multi-protocol Label Switching after killing its MPLS core switch, the TMX 880, as part of a product restructuring.
