|Alcatel-Lucent Network on Demand aligns network infrastructure costs with usage enabling companies to improve business results|
SINGAPORE, Mar 16, 2016 - (ACN Newswire) - ALE, operating under the Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise brand, is introducing a new cloud managed network infrastructure service designed and delivered with its business partners. The new Alcatel-Lucent Network on Demand service enables businesses to enjoy the latest networking technology on a pay-per-use basis. This new consumption model offers companies an alternative to capital expenditure, enabling them to focus their investment in key business priorities and to link infrastructure operational spending with changes in their business requirements.
Businesses are challenged to afford the frequent changes in networking technology and are seeking a better way to match technology expenses with business needs. They also find it difficult to acquire the skills to support and operate new technologies. To relieve these challenges, according to IDC, "By 2020, 80% of IT infrastructure will be on a pay-as-you-go basis." *
Delivering managed services at a new level
Network on Demand is a unified and secure LAN/WiFi managed service delivered via Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise Business Partners. With its automated, "out-of-the box" cloud managed tools, business partners offering managed services simplify operations and improve the satisfaction of their customers. Business partners can uniquely bundle usage-based billed applications with networking infrastructure to differentiate and match their customers' technology consumption models.
This offer removes the upfront capital cost of equipment for businesses and aligns the cost to the actual use. Network on Demand is ideal for businesses seeking the latest technology while only paying for what they need and when they need it.
Business are charged for the daily use of network devices: Schools with limited network activity on weekends and holidays would not be charged for parts of the network not being used; network connectivity service for hotel rooms can be charged based on occupancy; areas of stadium facilities which are typically occupied part of the week would only be charged during usage periods.
The Network on Demand offer is based on a unique momentum of industry-proven technologies available in the Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise network portfolio:

Rik van Winzum, Qi ict - "More and more of our customers leverage our managed services and we see a growing demand. The new Alcatel-Lucent Network on Demand is an excellent solution to enable our managed services business. We offer network, storage, security and cloud solutions to our customers, but the missing link in our portfolio, was the ability to offer a managed LAN/WLAN solution on demand. With the Network on Demand offer, we can now address new customers and new markets. This program also allows us to offer value-add for our customers with specialized reporting, performance analysis and security assessments."
Pat Botting, Founding and Managing Director, Freedom Communications (UK) - "With over 26 years' experience in the communications industry, we believe Network on Demand is the first solution of its kind and we're incredibly excited about the unique opportunity this presents to Freedom. NoD enables us to be first to market with a solution that will support our customers to adopt the latest data technology whilst benefitting from a significantly more favourable financial model."
Stephane Robineau, EVP and General Manager, Networking Business division, ALE
"Looking at the increased acceptance of IT on demand via cloud application services, we wanted to be the first to offer our customers the benefits of a new set of network services. Designed with our partners, Network on Demand changes the game by making it possible to offer Opex consumption based, unified, on demand LAN and WiFi managed services."
