The Alcatel-Lucent OmniSwitch™ 10K Modular LAN Chassis platform is a high-capacity, high-performance modular Ethernet LAN switch that is field proven in enterprise, service provide and data center environments. Based on the Alcatel-Lucent Operating System (AOS), which is a state-of-the-art, scriptable OS, the OmniSwitch 10K delivers uninterrupted network uptime with non-stop Layer 2 and Layer 3 forwarding and in service software upgrades. Deep packet buffers, a lossless virtual output queuing (VOQ) fabric, and extensive traffic management capabilities improve application performance and user experience. Its scalability and Layer 2/3 fabric throughput will meet your bandwidth requirements for today and tomorrow.
Layer 2/3 network deployments are simplified and the network has better performance and resiliency because of the OmniSwitch 10K’s virtual chassis and its implementation of Multi-Chassis Link Aggregation (MC-LA G) and Edge Ring Protection (ERP). The OmniSwitch 10K’s implementation of Edge Virtual Bridging VEPA (IEEE802.1Qbg EVB) and use of Alcatel-Lucent dynamic Virtual Network Profiles (vNP) allows network virtualization, readying the network for simplified, fully automated data center and cloud deployments over Shortest Path Bridging (IEEE 802.1aq SPB-M) or Multiple VLA N Registration Protocol (MVRP) backbones.
The OmniSwitch 10K is a perfect fit for data center applications and serves as a long-term upgrade to any network because of its class leading low-power consumption, front-to-back cooling, compact form factor, and all front-accessible components.
