Alcatel-Lucent's LAN switches for Asia Pacific SMEs

French communications solutions firm Alcatel-Lucent has introduced a family of Ethernet local area network (LAN) switches especially for small and medium enterprises.

According to the company, the OmniSwitch 6400 family of stackable, layer 2+ Gigabit Ethernet LAN switches, are cost-effective for small and medium-sized enterprises, branch offices, or for carrier Ethernet access applications.

Alcatel Lucent product management vice president for enterprise activities, Eric Penisson, said these low-power, economical switches are compact, yet offer high performance, multi-layered security and a rich feature set.

Pennison said the OmniSwitch 6400 is the data networking piece of the company's recently announced Office Communication Solutions (OCS) offer. The OCS is Alcatel-Lucent's small and medium business (SME) solution portfolio, which he said provides businesses with the IP infrastructure, communication, mobility, collaboration and knowledge sharing features, needed for dynamic enterprises.

He said the OmniSwitch 6400 streamlines troubleshooting for service providers with its support of standards based Ethernet operations, administration and maintenance (OAM) and Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) certification.

Optimised power consumption features

The OmniSwitch 6400 switches provide multi-layer security including user authentication, quarantine VLANs (virtual LAN), access control lists, encryption and denial of service protection.

Pennison said the OmniSwitch 6400 switches are in line with Alcatel-Lucent's commitment to design and develop products with optimized power consumption and that fully comply with RoHS (Restriction of the use of certain Hazardous Substances in electrical and electronic equipment) environmental standards.

"With the OmniSwitch 6400 products, we've created an offering that meets the broad needs of our customers," he said. "These Ethernet switches include sophisticated security and network features for small or medium service providers. The solutions allow demanding services that include triple play and IPTV (Internet Protocol television), as well as help providers reduce power costs."
