Lucent Adjusts to Voice as Data:

Market Strategies, Market Opportunities, and Market Forecasts, 2002 to 2007

The convergence of voice and data turns out to be merging of voice into data networks. As voice is transmitted over IP networks, call control switching is still needed. But, the shrinking markets are driving market consolidation. The trend towards consolidation in the global telecommunications industry is expected to continue into 2003. Lucent is positioning to embrace new network architecture that the RBOCs use to implement networks in a more efficient manner

Lucent is positioned to participate in the continuing expansion of wireless capabilities. End-user demand for network capacity from businesses and other organizations is expected to continue to grow in 2002 creating market demand for Lucent products. In 2002, declines in service provider capital spending in the area of long-distance optical networking are continuing.

Telecommunications markets are going to have diminished size early in the forecast period with some recovery later on. Telecommunications infrastructure is a primary economic driver in both developed and underdeveloped countries. New telecommunications infrastructure provides direct benefit because it supports reliable communication, universal access to voice communication, and Internet access. Telecommunications infrastructure provides indirect benefit by supporting the ability to achieve an educated population. The Internet provides access to information for enterprise training and learning that is useful for every discipline. This promises to continue. The Internet has become a significant sales and distribution channel in every industry. The Internet automates supply chains, changing the economics of doing business.

Lucent will continue to have its strongest markets in the United States. In the United States service providers are beginning to utilize excess network capacity. Only later will carriers exceed their excess network capacity. Once service providers have exhausted their current excess network capacity and begin to engage in new network expansions, service provider demand for long-distance optical networking equipment will occur.

Start-up and smaller telecommunications customers are struggling or faltering. Economic stimulus measures by the United States and other countries, such as the proposed deregulation of the Local Access Transport Area (LATA), may provide new spending opportunities for service providers around the world uncluding Lucent.

Telecommunications equipment shipment forecasts at $204.8 billion in 2001 are expected to reach $344.1 billion by 2007. Lucent will participate in these markets with significant market presence.
