"Alcatel builds next generation networks, delivering integrated end-to-end voice and data communications solutions to established and new carriers, as well as enterprises and consumers worldwide. With 120,000 employees and sales of US$25.0 billion, Alcatel operates in more than 130 countries."

"When introducing a new element to a customer's network, compatibility with the existing infrastructure and performance of the system are critical to the implementation. One of the tools Alcatel uses is Neal Nelson & Associates' Linux-based test bed to put all its products through high stress, real-life testing in a controlled lab environment. This avoids downtime and potential damage to information stored at actual customer sites."

""Our high standards for quality testing provides confidence in our code and to our customers, that our products are solid solutions," says Steve Melahn, pre-sales test engineer who runs Alcatel's pre-sales test laboratory."
