Alcatel-Lucent teams up with Uplinx for new opportunities in public sector

Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise has partnered with Uplinx Advanced Services, an independent systems integrator providing unified converged networking solutions, to develop new opportunities in the public sector.

With significant experience in diverse markets, Uplinx has built a solid customer base in Healthcare, Government, Education, Emergency Services, among others. The company says partnering with Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise comes naturally as Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise provides enterprise-grade and mission-critical network and communications solutions for those industries and Hospitality and Transportation.

In addition to Uplinx's advanced network infrastructure expertise, the company delivers customised advice and solutions for enterprise-grade telephony, critical messaging and collaboration, as well as contact centres.

"Our partnership with Uplinx Advanced Services has been robust from the start," says Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise country business leader ANZ, Maud Holvast.

"We have much in common, especially in unified networking and critical communications in Healthcare, but it's our company cultures that make this partnership unique and successful. Built on a solid foundation of open communication and trust, we've shown our customers our joint value proposition and won a major Public Health project within 12 months of our first exploratory conversations.

"Based on what we have already achieved together and the strong alignment between our organisations, I look forward to continuing delivering exceptional value to our customers," he adds.

Since the first successful joint healthcare project, Holvast says the partnership has grown from strength to strength with new opportunities in Healthcare, Education, Government and Emergency Services.

Alexey Sokolov, director at Uplinx Advanced Services, says, "We believe in the power of strong partnerships, and Alcatel-Lucent is the partner that inspires new possibilities and enables innovation. We know that we can build next-generation networks and communication platforms with Alcatel-Lucent, making digital transformation a reality for our customers.

"This is only the beginning of our journey, and I am confident that together we can change how people live, work and learn."

He says the Alcatel-Lucent and Uplinx teams share the same passion for exceptional customer service and the dedication to resolving customer problems with business-altering solutions. He says together, the companies are committed to enabling both their customers and people to reach their full potential.

Ricardo Meunier, Principal Architect at Uplinx Advanced Services, says, "Uplinx's knowledge of Alcatel-Lucent's portfolio allows the team to provide users with comprehensive collaboration, high-end user networking, and faster, more reliable data center infrastructure. Backed by Uplinx's real-world experience and expert know-how, Alcatel-Lucent solutions help customers do more than ever before.

"Uplinx Advanced Solutions is committed to connecting the previously unconnected. We've been solving business challenges by revolutionising how people communicate, collaborate, and innovate. As a high-end Integrator, we see our partnership with Alcatel-Lucent as delivering ground-breaking solutions for networks, collaboration, and data center."
