Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise Wins the Best of Interop 2011

With a breakthrough approach to data center switching Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise beat out competitors including Juniper Networks and Mellanox Technologies to win the Best of Interop 2011.

According to Kurt Marko, Information Week Analytics, Alcatel-Lucent had the most compelling design and supporting products for building extremely scalable, high-performance, cloud-like data center networks suitable for today's virtualized applications.

This energy-efficient solution allows enterprises to manage applications as a service across a range of deployment models, including multi-site data centers, dedicated departmental or workgroup virtual data centers, and hybrid environments that can integrate service provider offerings.

"The ever-expanding IT environment found in today's increasingly virtualized data centers is truly in need of forward-thinking concepts like Alcatel-Lucent's new Data Center Switching Solution. Companies planning to adopt 10Gb Ethernet and converged networking should take this as an opportunity to examine new and alternative networking strategies that can provide the same improved performance and flexibility that they've grown to expect from their other virtualization initiatives," said Steven Hill, Lead Judge, Best of Interop 2011.
