In an interview with Interaksyon, Jonathan Lee, lead consultant network communications solution portfolio for Alcatel-Lucent said the OmniSwitch 10K has a compelling design and supporting products for building extremely scalable, high-performance, cloud-like data center networks suitable for current virtualized application.
“Network infrastructure is evolving, expanding and becoming more complicated with new applications, devices and the virtualization of data centers,” Lee said. “Thus, there is an aggregate need for an enterprise infrastructure capable of monitoring and delivering these applications in real-time with low latency and high quality user experience.”
Lee said the OmniSwitch 10K can enable enterprises to manage data traffic that would result in an improvement overall application performance and user experience. In terms of capacity, he said OmniSwitch has a powerful scalability beyond 5.12 terabits.
Furthermore, Lee said Alcatel-Lucent also plans to offer datacenter switching and interconnect for large enterprises leveraging its Internet protocol service router and optical switching,
He said the company is targeting medium-sized enterprise data centers with OmniSwitch product line and related components.
Lee said the latest offering of Alcatel Lucent also contributes to the reduction of carbon footprint because it uses lower amount of power through its front-to-back cooling, compact form factor and all front accessible components.
Furthermore, the OmniSwitch 10K switch could develop a bridge between a private network and public network to maximize service provider assets, according to the executive.
He pointed out the latency issue has been addressed by the OmniSwitch 10k because its architecture has been designed to have no timeout malfunction in the system.
Alcatel-Lucent’s multi-chassis link application aggregation (MC-LAG) could fully maximize network designs towards increasing network resiliency, which could achieve lower cost deployments, investment protection and flexibility, Lee said.
