I am proud to announce that Bell Labs, the global research arm of Nokia and the IEEE have joined forces to make a new multimedia version of the famous Bell Labs Technical Journal (BLTJ) available to the millions of users of the IEEE Xplore digital library. Bell Labs’ scientists have been recognized by many of the world’s most prestigious technology organizations for their groundbreaking work in information and communications technology (ICT) and theory; innovations that have profoundly changed the course of society.  In addition to hosting the new Bell Labs Technical Journal articles that will focus on describing the connections between the past, present and future of all aspects of ICT, the IEEE will also provide access to the entire journal archives including the Bell System Technical Journal (1922-1983), AT&T Bell Labs Technical Journal (1984), and AT&T Technical Journal (1985-1996). These articles represent a historical context for some of the most important achievements in communications in the 20th and 21st centuries.  Building on this unique legacy, the new multimedia articles will describe the results of research Bell Labs is undertaking aimed at solving the current challenges in ICT, and finding solutions that are 10x better than those available today.
