The Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise OmniSwitch™ 6900 Stackable LAN and data center switches are compact, high-density 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GigE) and 40 GigE platforms. In addition to high performance and extremely low latency, they offer VXLAN, OpenFlow, Shortest Path Bridging (SPB), data center bridging (DCB) capabilities, QoS, Layer-2 and Layer-3 switching, as well as system and network level resiliency. They are designed for the most demanding software-defined operations in virtualized or physical networks and converged data centers. With their modular approach, the OmniSwitch 6900s support lossless configurations and native fibre channel ports for high-speed storage I/O consolidation. They can be positioned as converged top-of-rack or spine switches in data center environments as well as core and aggregation devices in campus networks.
