Alcatel-Lucent OmniSwitch 6900 (OS6900) Stackable LAN Switches are compact, high-density 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GigE) and 40 GigE platforms designed for the most demanding networks. These versatile platforms deliver on the promise of the next-generation virtualized and converged data center.
With their modular approach, OmniSwitch 6900 platforms manage converged lossless configurations for high-speed converged storage. In addition to high performance and extremely low latency, they offer data center bridging (DCB) capabilities, QoS, Layer 2 and Layer 3 switching, as well as system- and network-level resiliency. They can be positioned as top-of-rack switches in a data center, as well as core/aggregation switches in a converged campus network.
Through the use of optional modules, the OmniSwitch 6900 can offer the highest 10 GigE port density in its class, with up to 64 10 GigE ports in a 1U form factor. This modularity also allows for up to 6 40 GigE uplink ports or up to 16 10GBase-T ports. The OmniSwitch 6900 product family also contains an energy-efficient model with leading low power consumption. It’s the most efficient and versatile switch in its class.
