The Application Fluent Network is the enterprise's intelligent answer to managing demanding real-time application and BYOD environments. Alcatel-Lucent's unique technology intuitively meets the growing demand for rich media applications and virtualization within the enterprise.
With an Application Fluent Network, enterprises can enjoy a network that understands devices as well as associated applications. Contextual understanding of conversations between devices and applications makes it possible for the network to optimize the user experience and network performance, while lowering capital and operating expenses.
Alcatel-Lucent's Application Fluent Network is built upon three key attributes: a resilient architecture, streamlined operations, and automatic control. Capabilities in each of these areas collectively contribute to a superior user experience, improved workflow, lower network administration costs and a higher return on investment (ROI).
Resilient architecture refers to a simplified, optimized, single IP network with market-class leading capacity, resiliency, virtualization, and built-in security.
Automatic control capabilities provide unique dynamic tuning of network performance. The Application Fluent Network is auto-sensing, as well as profile- and policy-driven, ensuring high-quality, real-time application delivery.
Streamlined operations reduce complexity through automatic provisioning, converged management, consistency of OmniSwitch features, and market-leading carbon reduction in the form of low power consumption, and minimal cooling and space requirements.
The Application Fluent Network powers innovative solutions suitable for demanding deployments for the enterprise and service provider networks including:
Alcatel-Lucent's commitment to open network architecture, a systematic multi-vendor approach, and an expanding partner ecosystem delivers the utmost value to the customer.
