Mission critical networks provide organizations an optimized, resilient, reliable, highly secure and scalable infrastructure.

Mission critical networks

Network outages are unacceptable for many 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.


Shortest Path Bridging networks enable automation and resiliency

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.


Does your mission critical network need 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.
