Thomas Woo, Domain Leader

The Enabling Computing Technologies (ECT) research domain of Alcatel-Lucent Bell Labs advances and applies the computing and mathematical sciences to understand, invent and build disruptive communications technologies.

Researchers engage in a blend of fundamental research and applied research motivated by the wide spectrum of challenges posed by the communications industry. Our current activities include research in mobile distributed systems, algorithmic innovation from theory to practice, the mathematics of networks, the semantics of programming and data management, industrial mathematics, communications theory, statistics and learning. The domain also has a special focus on security, and it brings together researchers focused on network security, cryptographic protocol-based secure transactions, and novel secure hardware.

As our research matures, projects emerge that are the foundation for new capabilities within Alcatel-Lucent's products, services or operations. Sometimes they become the basis of an Alcatel-Lucent venture nurtured by an internal incubator for game-changing ideas within Alcatel-Lucent's Bell Labs. Examples of the latter include systems research resulting in the Alcatel-Lucent OmniAccess 3500 Nonstop Laptop Guardian and new analysis techniques for the Alcatel-Lucent 9900 Wireless Network Guardian.

The Enabling Computing Technologies domain has teams located in Villarceaux, France, Dublin, Ireland, Berlin, Germany, as well as in Murray Hill, New Jersey and Naperville, Illinois in the United States. We are expanding our ranks in each of these locations.
