The long-trusted partner of service providers, enterprises and governments around the world, Alcatel-Lucent is a leading innovator in the field of networking and communications technology, products and services. The company is home to Bell Labs, one of the world's foremost research centers, responsible for breakthroughs that have shaped the networking and communications industry. Alcatel-Lucent was named one of MIT Technology Review's 2012 Top 50 list of the "World's Most Innovative Companies" for breakthroughs such as lightRadio, which cuts power consumption and operating costs on wireless networks while delivering lightning fast Internet access. Through such innovations, Alcatel-Lucent is making communications more sustainable, more affordable and more accessible.
The Alcatel-Lucent OmniSwitch™ 10K Modular LAN Chassis and the Alcatel-Lucent OmniSwitch™ 9000E Modular LAN Chassis platform are a high-capacity, high-performance Ethernet LAN switch that is field proven in enterprise, service provide and data center environments. Based on the Alcatel-Lucent Operating System (AOS), which is a state-of-the-art, scriptable OS, the OmniSwitch 10K/9000E delivers uninterrupted network uptime with non-stop Layer 2 and Layer 3 forwarding and in service software upgrades. Deep packet buffers, a lossless virtual output queuing (VOQ) fabric, and extensive traffic management capabilities improve application performance and user experience. Its scalability and Layer 2/3 fabric throughput will meet your bandwidth requirements for today and tomorrow.
Layer 2/3 network deployments are simplified and the network has better performance and resiliency because of the OmniSwitch 10K's virtual chassis and its implementation of Multi-Chassis Link Aggregation (MC-LA G) and Edge Ring Protection (ERP). The OmniSwitch 10K's implementation of Edge Virtual Bridging VEPA (IEEE802.1Qbg EVB) and use of Alcatel-Lucent dynamic Virtual Network Profiles (vNP) allows network virtualization, readying the network for simplified, fully automated data center and cloud deployments over Shortest Path Bridging (IEEE 802.1aq SPB-M) or Multiple VLA N Registration Protocol (MVRP) backbones.
The OmniSwitch 10K and OmniSwitch 9000E is a perfect fit for data center applications and serves as a long-term upgrade to any network because of its class leading low-power consumption, front-to-back cooling, compact form factor, and all front-accessible components.
The Alcatel-Lucent OmniSwitch stackable LAN Switches come in a variety of configurations to suit the individual needs of any application. From high-density 10 Gig chassis (6900 series) that can be used for core switching to 100Mb access switches (6250 series); the OmniSwitch platform has a switch that will suit your individual needs regardless of location or port density.
All models of OmniSwitch feature the Alcatel Operating System (AOS), a standards based platform for interoperability with all manufacturers equipment. All lines feature models with or without PoE power, and have the option to provide redundant power supplies. Management can be done through either traditional CLI interface, or with the intuitive web interface. Models range in port densities from 10 ports (6450 series) to 54 ports per chassis (6900 series).
Alcatel-Lucent's next generation WLAN solution is a highly scalable, comprehensive set of mobile LAN that automatically identify and authenticate users as they connect to the network. Once user identity is established, it enables "follow-me" privileges, security and services - something no other enterprise system provides today. This sophisticated technology gives corporations the power to manage and secure people rather than ports.
The Alcatel-Lucent OmniAccess™ WLAN Switch/controller product family provides the industry's strongest integrated security feature set with a comprehensive line of WLAN switch/controllers, each designed for a specific environment such as the enterprise campus, building, and branch office environments.
Alcatel-Lucent OmniAccess WLAN APs are small, lightweight and can be securely deployed in a variety of locations such as on walls, cubicles, desktops, and in the ceiling. The AP antenna diversity allows for the best possible signal processing using dual, omni-directional antennas. APs are also available for remote and independent access.
Standard with every wireless LAN, Alcatel-Lucent OmniAccess base software provides unprecedented control over the entire wireless environment and enables advanced adaptive WLAN, identity-based security and application continuity services.
Alcatel-Lucent OmniAccess™ Access Points (APs) are small, lightweight and can be securely deployed in a variety of locations such as on walls, cubicles, desktops, and in the ceiling. The AP antenna diversity allows for the best possible signal processing using dual, omni-directional antennas.
Alcatel-Lucent OmniAccess APs work with Alcatel-Lucent OmniAccess Wireless LAN (WLAN) switch/controllers to provide a high performance wireless mobility solution for enterprises. Alcatel-Lucent OmniAccess APs have an extended lifespan because they automatically configure themselves across any L2/L3 network using discovery, allowing easy upgrades when new features, capabilities, or standards emerge.
