ALE & NEC to show joint solution at SDN Lab Interop LV


ALE and NEC to participate in SDN Lab at Interop Las Vegas with joint enterprise SDN solution

Next week at Interop Las Vegas 2015 ALE, with its Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise solutions (booth 1027), and NEC Corporation of America (NEC – booth 1033) will be demonstrating capabilities for operating, managing and automating networks via Software Defined Networking (SDN) as joint participants at Interop Las Vegas 2015.

New to this event, the InteropNet SDN Lab is designed as an educational resource for the IT community to demonstrate features, functions, and principles of SDN. Here, resources will come together to test Software-Defined Networking systems and applications using both open source tools and vendor hardware and software.

In conjunction with Interop’s team of network experts, the Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise/NEC solution will demonstrate the following concepts:
• Networks that adjust to changing workloads and conditions;
• Using SDN to initiate traffic engineering functions such as selectively routing around problem spots, sending traffic to monitoring devices, or routing to multiple Cloud providers based on dynamic network conditions;
• Automated integration between applications and network resources using APIs and controllers.

Today’s businesses are driven by growth opportunities and goals to optimize operations that gain more return on investment. The joint solution between the two companies provides mid-to-large enterprises an efficient, orchestrated network fabric where services can be easily deployed, migrated and extended providing exceptional agility and operational efficiencies. In addition, the fabric understands application needs and dynamically optimizes itself providing a quality user experience.

ALE and NEC have demonstrated interoperability in previous environments as ALE is a member of NEC’s SDN Partner Space program. Here, Alcatel-Lucent OmniSwitch® Platform SDN interfaces integration have been validated with NEC’s ProgrammableFlow® Controller.

The InteropNet SDN Lab will feature hands-on whiteboard sessions hosted by industry experts using open source and vendor tools for a number of demonstrations. InteropNet tours and classes will run Tuesday, April 28 – Thursday, April 30 at the InteropNet Lounge on the Expo Floor. For more information about the SDN Lab visit
