This top-of-rack LAN and data center switch is compact and high-density, with 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GigE), 25 GigE, 40 GigE and 100 GigE options.

Designed for the most demanding software-defined operations, the Alcatel-Lucent OmniSwitch 6900 offers high performance and extremely low latency. Its stackable, modular design keeps your footprint small – and your management simple, because you can run multiple switches as one.

These secure, compact, high density 10, 25, 40 and 100 GigE platforms are also designed to be flexible. You can position them as converged top-of-rack spine switches in your data center, or as core and aggregation devices in your campus network.
