KPN has hired Alcatel-Lucent (ALU +2.6%) to manage its Dutch wireline network for the next 5 years. Alcatel will also migrate KPN's backbone network from legacy circuit-switched SDH tech to VoIP, and provide lightRadio Wi-Fi systems. News of the deal comes as Bloomberg observes Alcatel and Huawei are emphasizing managed services in an attempt to win deals at the expense of Ericsson and Nokia Siemens. Alcatel's services revenue grew 1.8% in 2012, while service provider hardware sales fell 8.6%. (Ericsson forecast)
