The Alcatel-Lucent OmniSwitch 6900 (OS6900) Stackable LAN Switches are compact, high-density 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) and 40 GbE platforms designed for the most demanding networks. These platforms offer unmatched versatility to actually deliver on the promise of the next generation virtualized data center. With their modular approach, these platforms accommodate the exact rack configuration and lowest oversubscription ratio required by the application flows. In addition to high performance and extremely low latency, the OmniSwitch 6900 platforms offer extensive QoS and 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 GE port density in its class, with up to 64 10 GE ports in a 1U form factor. This modularity also allows for up to six 40 GE uplink ports. With a leading power consumption model, the OS6900 product family is the most efficient and versatile switch in its class
