Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise, a leading provider of communication, network and cloud solutions tailored to customers’ industries, has announced the worldwide availability of new models in its OmniSwitch 6900 switching range, designed for enterprise data centres and core networks. 

The company continues to improve its portfolio as part of its Digital Age Networking (DAN) strategy to ease the Digital Transformation of enterprise businesses in key vertical sectors.

Digital Age Networking relies on three pillars: 

  • Autonomous network to automatically and securely connect people, objects, processes and applications.
  • Leveraging IoT networking with efficient and secure onboarding of devices using segmentation techniques to minimise the risk of compromising the entire network.
  • Business Innovation through workflow automation, simplifying the creation of new, fully automated digital business processes to enable new revenue streams.

Stephan Robineau, Executive Vice President of Networking Business at Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise, said: “The new OmniSwitch 6900-V48C8 and OS6900-X48 & T48, ToR supports high-speed bandwidth, with increased 10/25/100 GigE port density and greater virtualisation and segmentation capacities. The solution is particularly adapted to the use of bandwidth-sensitive applications including video surveillance, real time, high-definition video conferencing and Virtual or Augmented Reality. It is ideal for large campus networks with a high number of users and connected devices such as airports or transportation hubs, universities, hospitals or government agencies with their own data centres.”

The Digital Transformation of businesses is driving IT organisations to redesign their data centre and core networks. The new OmniSwitch 6900 offers high-end performance, suited for mission-critical applications requesting high-availability with simplified provisioning and management. The solution is based on the Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise Operating System (AOS), with a large choice of network fabric protocols for virtualisation and micro-segmentation.

ALE high-density, Top-of-Rack (ToR) and core network platforms offer increased connectivity capacity for data centre and core networks with high-density, 100 GigE for the most demanding operations requiring extremely low latency and advanced capacity to support an accelerated Digital Transformation.
