Alcatel   Alcatel-Lucent
Alcatel — since 2006 known as Alcatel-Lucent — was a French global manufacturer of tele­communications equipment, headquartered in Boulogne-Billancourt (France). The roots of the company date back to the late 19th century, with the French company La Compagnie Générale d'Electricité (CGE) and the American Western Electric Manufacturing Company. Alcatel — originally the abbreviation of Société Alsacienne de Constructions Atomiques, de Télécommunications et d'Électronique — was a small company in Mulhouse (France) that was absorbed by CGE in 1966.

In 2006, the French company Alcatel was merged with the American company Lucent, with the latter being the successor of AT&T's Western Electric. The company focussed on fixed, mobile and converged networking hardware, IP technologies, software and services, and had operations in more than 130 countries. It also owned the prestigious American Bell Laboratories [1].

In November 2016, Alcatel-Lucent was acquired by Nokia and was merged into Nokia Networks, whilst Bell Labs remained an independent subsidary of Nokia. The Alcatel-Lucent brand name has since been replaced by Nokia, but the name Alcatel-Lucent lives on as Alcatel-Lucent Enterprice (ALE), the enterprise division of Alcatel-Lucent that had been sold to China Huaxin in 2014 [1].
