Turnkey Mobile Wallet Solution Will Facilitate NFC Deployment

PARIS, December 3, 2010 - Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) today announced
an agreement to integrate CASSIS International's Trusted Service Manager
(TSM) with Alcatel-Lucent's comprehensive mobile payment and marketing
offering. This pre-integrated solution enables mobile network operators
(MNOs) to provide a secure mobile application warehouse for payment,
ticketing, loyalty and other applications by allowing consumers to use their
mobile phones as a wallet at the point of sale.

Mobile phones are being used as the new wallet everywhere,
with mobile wallet users reaching 1.4 billion by 2015, predicted by Edgar,
Dunn and company. A consumer launches a credit card application on the Near
Field Communications (NFC) phone and the phone will act as a credit card. The
consumer will also have the possibility of checking his balance and
transaction history in real time on the phone and will be able to subscribe
to new payment, transport or loyalty programs on the fly by installing a
secure application from the mobile super-store. In fact, Alcatel-Lucent's
survey revealed that 89 percent of the youth market would be willing to pay a
monthly fee for such a mobile wallet service.

The Alcatel-Lucent and CASSIS partnership provides a single
point of contact for the secure contactless application providers to access
their customer base through the MNOs. The CASSIS Trusted Service Manager
distributes, provisions and activates the applications and services of the
service providers, and is considered the middle man between MNOs and third
party service providers. This allows a mobile phone to act like a credit
card, transport card or loyalty card. MNOs can leverage the relationship and
services of the TSM to collaborate with other industry service providers and
rapidly create new services for their customers, independent of handset and
secure element makers, and thereby creating new revenue streams.

This joint solution highlights further progress with
Alcatel-Lucent's application enablement strategy, which combines the trusted
capabilities of service providers with the speed and innovation of the Web to
enable a new generation of services that provides both consumers and business
users with richer experiences. Mobile service providers can safely expose
network assets and access to handset secured elements, such as identity
management, to third parties such as banks, and other application and content
providers to create innovative secure mobile applications that utilize the
mobile operator's network and handset capabilities. This further drives
availability of new applications via the creation of a secured mobile
application warehouse.

Alcatel-Lucent offers a complete solution to MNOs for
proximity payments and mobile financial services including a "stored value
account" (wallet), payment gateway to banks and credit cards, an e-money
license, credit card issuing and acquiring licenses and profile server.
CASSIS' TSM services provide a mobile application warehouse where consumers
can download secure applications to their NFC handset. CASSIS' world class
expertise in TSM offers over-the-air provisioning that remotely manages
multiple secure mobile applications such as debit or credit card payment
applications on the secure element, independent of its form factor, such as,
Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) cards, MicroSD cards, active stickers, and
NFC phone with embedded secure element.

"This partnership completes our turnkey mobile payment and
marketing offering for mobile operators and NFC consortia," said Anthony
, General Manager Alcatel-Lucent Mobile Wallet Service. "The
combination of CASSIS' unique expertise on TSM with Alcatel-Lucent's Mobile
Wallet Service offering, worldwide presence and integration expertise creates
a unique market proposition. With this offering, we can enable our mobile
carrier customers to provide a kind of "SIM app store" so payment, ticketing
and lots of 3rd party applications can be provided to any NFC handset into
the hands of the carriers' customers."

"Consumers get their freedom of choice from the secure mobile
application mobile warehouse," said Thian Yee Chua, CEO of CASSIS
International. "We shared the vision of Alcatel-Lucent. Combining its
leadership in the telecommunication industry with our experience and track
record in other industries shortens the learning curve for mobile operators,
while speeding up their service deployment, and making NFC business
