OmniSwitch 6865

The Alcatel-Lucent OmniSwitch® 6865 series of switches are industrial grade, high-density, advanced Ethernet platforms designed for operating reliably in the harshest of environmental & severe temperature environments.

OS6865 switches are rugged, high bandwidth switches that are ideal for industrial and mission-critical applications that require wider operating temperature ranges, stringent EMC/EMI requirements and an optimized feature set for high security, reliability, performance and easy management. These switches run on the widely deployed & field-proven Alcatel-Lucent Operating system offering SPB-M based VPNs and other advanced routing & switching capabilities.

The OS6865 series offers a unique mix of features to cater to the Hardened Ethernet applications,  HPoE (75W PoE) for those power hungry devices on the access network, SPB-M for fast, cost-efficient roll-out of VPN services on the edge and a comprehensive suite of security features to secure the network edge. These switches are easy to deploy with our award winning Intelligent-Fabric technology which offers out-of-the-box plug-and-play, Zero-touch provisioning and network automation.  These switches are future ready with the HW designed to support IEEE 1588v2 PTP capabilities for timing requirements of industrial devices. The OS6865 family offers advanced system and network level resiliency features and convergence through standardized protocols.

These versatile industrial switches are ideal for deployment in transportation and traffic control systems, power utilities, video surveillance systems and outdoor installations..
