Mission Critical Networks
Mission critical networks provide organizations an optimized, resilient, reliable, highly secure and scalable infrastructure.
Network outages are unacceptable for vertical organizations such as transportation, healthcare and smart cities. The network must provide multiple layers of resilience, optimize traffic flows and minimize disruption to services by being cyber-secure, application aware and offering a unified, resilient management overlay.
Stronger network backbone is key to reliable network, and it interconnects all the different network domains including devices via fiber- or copper-based Ethernet access and various wireless domains. To effectively provide resilient, reliable, and secure backbone connections across the network infrastructure, the backbone network needs to meet the challenges such as
- Network segmentation
- Multi-service applications network convergence
- Deterministic QoS to meet application specific requirements.
- High network availability
- Rigorous security
- Precise network synchronization
- Simplified network management
Shortest Path Bridging networks
Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise offers SPB technology to maximize ROI and automate the onboarding and management of users, devices and objects in a mission critical network. SPB provides an extremely efficient, simple and resilient network architecture. This technology offers a multi-tenant, simple, secure, scalable, robust and highly flexible architecture that is dynamic, standard based with a sub 100ms convergence.
SPB offer network segmentation on Layer 2 thus securing network and limiting security risks against human errors. SPB offers very low network convergence and QoS to meet application specific requirements. In addition, SPB offers non-blocking architecture unlike Spanning tree protocol (STP) thus high network availability. Simplified network management using Network Management using Omnivista 2500
Mission critical network using IP/MPLS
In most organizations, a sub 100ms convergence time in case of fault is acceptable, however, there are specific cases where a faster re-convergence in the core of the network is required. MPLS (multi-protocol label switching) has been designed for service providers and larger mission critical enterprises, such as rail.
MPLS provides a highly scalable, highly flexible, secure, robust multi-tenant network with a sub 50ms convergence time, and a high level of traffic engineering. It also supports legacy protocols such as SDH or analog, while providing true traffic and resource reservation across the network.

Digital Age Networking for ITS
Smart highways reduce congestion and save lives. The 20th century networks of DOTs will not be able to address what the 21st century requires ITS to be. A Service Defined Network is the network of the future for ITS.Download the whitepaper
