As performance requirements in enterprise core and data centre networks continue to increase, the Alcatel-Lucent OmniSwitch 9912 provides, what the vendor claims, is a robust foundation for high-bandwidth autonomous networks.
As expected, the new switch will seamlessly integrate with the existing OmniSwitch portfolio to support large-scale virtualised networks using modern and scalable fabric technologies such as the Shortest Path Bridging (SPB), also from Alcatel-Lucent.
With OmniSwitch 9912 uses a high-capacity switching fabric and high-density 100G line cards to meet bandwidth requirements. With port speeds from 1G to 100G, it enables networks to grow incrementally as the needs increase.
The OmniSwitch 9912 lets operators build a resilient network core with full redundancy and multiple connectivity options to create large campus networks. Alcatel-Lucent OmniSwitch 9912 with AOS 8.9R3 benefits include:
• High-capacity, modular, flexible 12-slot chassis
• High-bandwidth availability with port speeds from 1G to 100G
• 51.2Tbps switching capacity
• Investment protection
• Flexible deployment options for migration
• Extended security
• A future-ready solution
“With the region’s ongoing digital transformation across industries, we are seeing significant demand for mission-critical and high capacity switching solutions that can meet the demand of campus, data centre and cloud-based deployments across government and private sectors,” said Kenny Ng, head of APAC business development, network business division, Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise.
