New Alcatel-Lucent Ethernet Switch Outperforms Enterprise Core Market

Alcatel-Lucent today announced the global availability of a powerful new 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GigE) enterprise switch that sets a new standard in non-blocking switch capacity, port density, low power consumption and price per port. The OmniSwitch 10K Modular LAN Chassis is the first of a generation of network infrastructure offerings that exemplify Alcatel-Lucent's approach to enabling Application Fluent Networks.

"Virtualization, cloud computing, and the increasing array of devices appearing on the network create a new world of complexity when delivering applications," said Mark Fabbi, vice president, Gartner. "What is needed is a flattened network designed to be resilient, low-latency and easy to operate. In essence, enterprises need to provide high quality application delivery that adjusts according to the user, application and device in use."
