How do we help education customers?
Sharing knowledge: Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise’s 20 years of E-rate experience can help you extend your budget and receive the full E-rate benefits to your K-12 institution. Build a plan that is cognizant of product eligibility, status and technology to make your E-rate dollars go further.
Developing partnerships: A healthy vendor relationship during and after the E-rate process gets the most out of your budget and fulfils the needs of your students and faculty. We’ve built our whole business model on cooperative partnerships that support you beyond E-Rate season. We’re in the business of making education…and business…personal.
Leading technology: Efficient and cost-effective wired and wireless technology help stretch your E-rate funds.
High performance networking: Build a future proof network with LAN and Wi-Fi that supports 100 Gb/s and multi-gig ports. Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise networks feature IEEE 802.1aq (SPB) technology that enables all uplinks to transmit traffic and sub-second failover to eliminate Spanning Tree port blocking.
Centralized network management: Platforms that feature wizards to check configuration, create security policies and reduce errors are required for both physical and cloud-based deployment.
Alcatel-Lucent OmniVista 2500 and cloud-based OmniVista Cirrus, feature “one pane of glass” Wi-Fi and LAN management, and enable E-rate eligible managed services.
Automatic enablement: Accomplish more with OmniSwitches that support a wide variety of network automation standards (such as SDN and Python scripting), and Intelligent Fabric that automatically enables rapid network switch deployment and configuration (including OSPF).
Advanced Wi-Fi: OmniAccess Stellar Wi-Fi eliminates the controller bottleneck in your Wi-Fi network by decoupling management from the data path. It also enables mesh design installation without cabling.
Hardened switches: OmniSwitches and OmniAccess Stellar access points turn any space into a learning space by providing network access to outdoor locations, such as athletic fields and green spaces.
