Alcatel-Lucent Omniswitch 6900 Stackable LAN Switches

The Alcatel-Lucent OmniSwitch® 6900 Stackable LAN and data center switches are compact, high-density 10 Gb Ethernet (GigE) and 40 GigE platforms. In addition to high performance and extremely low latency, they offer Virtual Extensible LAN (VXLAN), OpenFlow, Shortest Path Bridging (SPB), and data center bridging (DCB) capabilities, QoS, Layer-2 and Layer-3 switching, as well as system and network level resiliency. They are designed for the most demanding software-de ned operations in virtualized or physical networks and converged data centers.

With their modular approach, the OmniSwitch 6900s support lossless con gurations and native Fibre Channel (FC) ports for high-speed storage I/O consolidation. They can be positioned as converged top-of-rack or spine switches in data center environments, or as core and aggregation devices in campus networks.

omniswitch_6900The OmniSwitch 6900 product family offers a broad range of 1/10 GigE and 40 GigE port density in a 1-RU form factor. The switches offer the highest 10 GigE port density in their class, with up to 104 x 10 GigE ports, up to 32 x 40 GigE and up to 24 x 2/4/8 Gigabit Fibre Channel (GFC) ports in a 1 RU form factor. Its modularity also allows for many combinations to address any to any switching between Ethernet, Converged Ethernet and FC ports. The OmniSwitch 6900 product family leverages an energy-ef cient model with leading low power consumption, making them the most ef cient and versatile switches in their class.

Disaster Recovery – What would you do if you lost your building!

Disaster Recovery

  Communication Hastens Disaster Recovery

First, many companies have not considered disaster recovery or the impact to their business if their communications systems were down for 1 or more days following a disaster such as a fire, hurricane or earthquake. The fact is, recovery time to restore even partial service will take days, if not weeks.
