Alcatel-Lucent and HP expand global alliance

HP is to start selling Alcatel-Lucent solutions, after the two companies expanded their global alliance.

The move will see enterprise customers being offered Alcatel-Lucent’s IP routing and optical products with HP's existing routing and storage portfolios.

It is aimed at reducing network complexity and enhancing IT agility for organisations.

"This expanded alliance with HP allows us to continue doing what we do best – building networks that help meet our customers' objectives. And it will allow us to leverage the strengths of both companies to increase the value we deliver to those customers," said Basil Alwan, president at Alcatel-Lucent IP routing and transport.

"Together, we will continue to innovate and offer large enterprises and service providers the industry's most agile and flexible solutions with the right performance and economics for the cloud era."
