LAN Switches:
Alcatel-Lucent OmniSwitch 9000 Family

Alcatel-Lucent OmniSwitch 9000 Chassis LAN Switch series is comprised of full featured layer-2 and layer-3, high-performance 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GigE) switches that provide advanced security, IPv4 and IPv6 routing, quality of service (QoS) and power over Ethernet (PoE) support. Its industry awards, benchmark-setting performance and high reliability, makes it an industry best value for next generation networks.


Alcatel-Lucent OmniSwitch 9000 Models:

  • OmniSwitch 9600

    The OmniSwitch 9600 (OS9600) is the smallest chassis of the award winning OmniSwitch 9000 product family. The OS9600 is ideal for the aggregation tier of a 3 tier enterprise network and the wiring closet where support for converged applications and PoE is a requirement. The OS9600 delivers industry leading quality of service (QoS) for multi-media applications and voice-over-IP (VoIP), wire-rate first packet, multi-layer security with 802.1x and native IPv4 & IPv6.

    The OmniSwitch 9600 is a five-slot chassis supporting one CMM and four network interface (NI) modules. The OS9600 uses the OmniSwitch 9700 CMM and shares a common set of network interface modules with the rest of the OmniSwitch 9000 family. The wide range of GigE and 10GigE interfaces offered by the OS9600 facilitates the industrys most flexible combination of Ethernet in a wiring closet switch.

  • OmniSwitch 9700

    9700The Alcatel-Lucent OmniSwitch 9700 switch addresses the evolving needs of the enterprise: high availability, wire-speed performance, high density GigE and 10GigE and dramatically improved network response time. These capabilities ensure an easy and economical way to upgrade or deploy a new Ethernet network.

    The OmniSwitch 9700 is a high-density, 10 slot chassis. Two center slots are dedicated to chassis management modules (CMMs) allowing redundant configurations and 8 slots for network interfaces supporting an aggregation of up to 192 GigE ports or 48 10GigE ports. The OS9700 is engineered to be deployed in the core, data center, aggregation layer, or wiring closet and was recently named as Network Computing's Editor's Choice for its superb manageability and ease of use.

    The large number of ports makes the OmniSwitch 9700 suitable for two or three-tier network designs. This is possible because of the high performance capability and density of GigE and 10GigE. With native and full support of both IPv6 and IPv4 protocols, the OS9700 future proofs the enterprise, ensuring worry-free, wirespeed, phased migrations to IPv6.

  • OmniSwitch 9800

    9700The Alcatel-Lucent OmniSwitch 9800 (OS9800) expands the award- winning OmniSwitch 9000 family (OS9000) with a larger chassis featuring twice as much capacity than the OmniSwitch 9700 providing improved enterprise LAN core switching. Of the OS9000s, the OS9800 is the best fit for the larger core of an enterprise network, providing enough capability/connectivity to eliminate the need for the aggregation tier.

    The Alcatel-Lucent OmniSwitch 9800 model is an 18-slot chassis supporting two chassis management modules (CMMs) and 16 network interface (NI) modules. The OmniSwitch 9800 shares a common set of network interface modules with the OmniSwitch 9600 and 9700 family and offers a wide range of GigE and 10GigE interfaces, facilitating the industry's most flexible combination of Ethernet in a switch.

    The OS9800 satisfies current requirements such as availability, performance and density for both GigE and 10GigE and sets a new expectation regarding the network response time.
