Name change

Name change

The systems and technology company of Murray Hill, NJ-based AT&T will be known as Lucent Technologies. The new company, which has been formed as a result of AT&T`s restructuring into three separate, publicly held companies, designs, builds and delivers a wide range of public and private networks, communications systems and software, consumer and business telephone systems and microelectronics components. Bell Laboratories is the research and development arm for the company.

This corporate name is the result of a process that began in September 1995, when AT&T said it would restructure into three stand-alone entities: a communications services company that retains the AT&T name and logo (see Lightwave, November 1995, page 1); Lucent Technologies; and a business computing company that recently changed its name back to NCR Corp. (see Lightwave, February 1996, page 3).
