Alex Scroxton

Application delivery specialist Blue Coat has signed a resale agreement with Alcatel-Lucent to bundle its web caching and content delivery portfolio alongside the networking vendor's video delivery platform, Velocix.

Under the terms of the deal, Alcatel-Lucent will have access to Blue Coat's ProxySG and CacheFlow appliances, and will target telcos, ISPs, mobility operators and managed services providers.

Alcatel-Lucent's services team will deploy services including configuration support, cuapacity planning, security, consultancy and integration alongside the combined solutions, which are available immediately.

"We see significant opportunity to help sevrice providers capitalise on growing demand for access to high-speed video over the Internet by leveraging their existing infrastructure investments," said Alcatel-Lucent vice president of Velocix solutions, Paul Larbey.
