Ogden City acquires data switches and wireless solutions to facilitate services to the community.


  • Need to upgrade to 10GigE and had to forklift upgrade their very large chassis-based core
  • Need of a proven technology that would provide failover in an emergency situation
  • Limited personnel to help with the conversion




  • A core design based on stacked switches using OSPF Ring protocols at a fraction of the cost of other vendors’ chassis-based solutions
  • A solution that provided 10GigE, High Availability and a Professional Services install at nearly the same cost as others were quoting for hardware only
  • The customer just passed an independent network assessment with flying colors

"The Alcatel-Lucent solution allowed us to upgrade our network to 10 Gig at a fraction of the cost of competitive solutions. And it’s a long-life solution, too: we passed our most recent network audit with flying colors, five years after deployment."

— Cliff Jones, IT Security/Network Administrator
