Intelligent Fabric – 2015 Best of Interop Networking Winner
Interop Las Vegas recognizes Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise Intelligent Fabric technology for simplifying networking complexities

Las Vegas, NV, April 29, 2015 – Today the new Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise Intelligent Fabric technology was honored with the Interop Las Vegas’ Best of Interop 2015 Award in the networking category.

“We’re excited to have won the Best of Interop award in the Networking category. This third award in the past five years highlights the innovation power of ALE, providing valuable benefits and tangible outcomes for our customers by automating deployment and ongoing operations on the network,” said Stephane Robineau, Vice President, ALE. “Our goal is to simplify networking while offering the most advanced capabilities. The new Intelligent Fabric delivers that and more.”
The Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise Intelligent Fabric is being showcased this week at Interop Las Vegas, booth #1027, the industry’s premier technology event focusing on the present and future innovations driving the IT community forward. Despite advances in computing and storage to help achieve more business agility, today’s network complexities have limited IT departments’ ability to quickly respond to business needs.

"Congratulations to ALE for the success of Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise Intelligent Fabric technology and taking home the Best of Interop award in the networking category," said Interop General Manger Jennifer Jessup.
