As part of its Unified Access (http://enterprise.alcatel-lucent.com/?solution=ConvergedCampus&page=UnifiedAccess) approach for both wired and wireless networks,
Fuelled by cloud services and the BYOD phenomenon, the number and type of applications used in enterprises is growing, requiring IT teams to be armed with new tools and capabilities that ensure business goals are met and the network remains secure.
The new OmniSwitch 6860 (OS6860) family, with embedded analytics and programmability, is one of the industry's most advanced gigabit access switches.
* An innovative ASIC and co-processor providing wire-rate deep packet inspection (DPI) and policy enforcement right at the edge of the network. IT has more visibility of applications being used, how much bandwidth is consumed, and the immediate ability to enforce policies to control prioritisation, QOS and security. * SDN-enabled with the support of OpenFlow and OpenStack. * OmniSwitch 6860 models also support four unique 1G POE ports that offer up to 60W power over Ethernet (POE) to support next-generation devices that require high power, such as small cells that combine cellular and WiFi, and high-definition video surveillance cameras. * The OmniSwitch 6860 is also data centre and IT friendly: all ports are in the front, with front-to-back cooling and an innovative Bluetooth management connection so smart devices can be used to manage the switch. In addition, it can be used in the data centre as a 1GbE top-of-rack switch.
Building on its Unified Access approach,
The enhancements include:
* DPI capability of up to 1 500 applications and programmability support on Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise OmniAccess WLAN controllers. * New OmniAccess Access Points to better address the growing adoption of Gigabit wireless (802.11ac) and the diverse deployment needs with outdoor AP, low cost APs and Instant APs. * The
OmniVista 2500 Network Management System
OmniVista is redesigned to better support network analytics and provide the foundation for future consumption models as more enterprises move toward cloud-based services. The new OmniVista 2500 provides:
* Multi-tenancy and a distributed architecture for resilience, scalability, and future cloud-based service offers. * Open northbound/southbound APIs for future interoperability in an SDN architecture. * New Web-based user interface allows IT to access the NMS from any device such as tablets and smartphones, anywhere. * Unified policy engine and cohesive visibility of both wired and wireless networks simplifies IT operations. * Centralised network analytics for wired and wireless IT provides a comprehensive view of the users, devices and applications in the network and enables them to apply the appropriate policies to the network devices.
