SPB is a fantastic open standard, and if your current vendor isn't meeting your expectations, ALE offers you an alternative.
The OmniSwitch 6865 is the latest edition to the OmniSwitch family. And it's very special, as it's the world's only ruggedized Ethernet switch that supports Shortest Path Bridging (SPB, aka IEEE 802.1aq).
Anyone with even a little familiarity with IT knows that data security is a big deal, and with good reason.
Shortest-path-bridging is increasingly expanding its reach beyond the data center and is providing network administrators a new alternative for service separation, while at the same time reducing or eliminating the use of spanning tree in their networks.
I recently received a note from David de'Marsi, a Senior Network Engineer and an Alcatel-Lucent Certified Field Expert (ACFE).
