Modular chassis is designed for large core networks

Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise introduces its OmniSwitch 9912, saying it is the latest high-capacity modular chassis in the OmniSwitch family.

It is designed to provide a robust foundation for high bandwidth autonomous networks and offers seamless integration with the existing OmniSwitch products to support large scale virtualised networks using modern and scalable fabric technologies such as shortest path bridging (SPB).

The OmniSwitch 9912 allows customers to protect their investment by future-proofing the core network build-out using a high-capacity switching fabric and high-density 100G line cards to meet bandwidth requirements. It has a range of port speeds from 1G to 100G and allows networks to be designed to last for years, while growing incrementally as requirements increase, said Alcatel-Lucent.

The OmniSwitch 9912 lets operators build a resilient network core with full redundancy and multiple connectivity options to create large campus networks. Alcatel-Lucent OmniSwitch 9912 with AOS 8.9R3 benefits include high-capacity, modular, flexible 12-slot chassis and high-bandwidth availability with port speeds from 1G to 100G with 51.2Tbits per second switching capacity.

“We are excited to announce the addition of the Alcatel-Lucent OmniSwitch 9912 into the OmniSwitch portfolio. This offering creates new opportunities across all regions and vertical markets for mid to large customers, helping them protect their existing investments with flexible solutions that allow them to grow as needed” says, Stephen Robineau, executive vice president, Network Business Division, Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise and president of ALE USA.

Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise delivers the customised technology to enterprises with digital-age networking, communications and cloud solutions with services tailored to ensure customers’ success, flexible business models in the cloud, on premises, and hybrid. All solutions have built-in security and limited environmental impact.

Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise’s headquarters are in France.
