An SDN-ready, high-capacity modular Ethernet LAN switch that's field-proven in enterprise, service provider and data center environments.

Here's a switch that's leading the pack. A high density, multi-Terabit modular platform offering linear scaling, excellent redundancy, resiliency and high availability. The Alcatel-Lucent OmniSwitch 9900 series modular LAN chassis platform is ideally suited for enterprise core, aggregation and edge environments. Its resilient platform architecture provides control plane and data plane redundancy together with unparalleled scalability to meet demanding resiliency and throughput requirements for evolving enterprises of all sizes.

The OmniSwitch 9900 series offers a broad range of modules supporting 1 GigE, 10 GigE and 40 GigE ports in an 11-RU chassis form factor, and it offers highest 1 GigE/10GigE port density in its class. The platform is also ready to support 100 GigE.

Highlights

  • Automate and simplify the end-to-end deployment of campus, data center and cloud-based services, using a flexible fabric architecture straight out of the box
  • Provide high-capacity PoE and connectivity to devices in your converged campus network
  • Be prepared to control virtual network profiles and policy management with SDN and virtualization

Features

  • Modular slots offer versatility in terms of 40 GigE QSFP+, 10 GigE SFP+, 10 G Base-T and 10/100/1000 Base-T ports; each port is capable of operating as 40 GigE or 4x10 GigE
  • Up to two switches can be connected using virtual chassis technology to create a single chassis-like entity with up to 480 10 GigE ports and 480 GigE ports
  • Scalable network virtualization architecture with Auto-Fabric IP routing for routed backbone and access provisioning, Shortest Path Bridging (SPB) for bridging and routed services, Edge Virtual Bridging (EVB), Multiple VLAN Registration Protocol (MVRP) and dynamic Virtual Network Profiles (vNP)
  • Zero-touch provisioning and network automation with out-of-the-box plug-and-play Auto-Fabric for automatic protocol and topology discovery. Auto-Fabric operation extends to IP routing protocol provisioning and IP onboarding
