Bell Labs, not Bellcore. Two different organizations.

Bell Labs (since then being renamed Lucent) was the
R&D arm of AT&T.

Bellcore (since then being renamed Telcordium) was the
R&D arm of the seven spun off Baby Bells (RBOCs).

<something> Consortium or something like that.)

Kinda need a scorecard, no?
