Alcatel-Lucent OmniSwitch Ethernet Switches Primary Use Case

James Ashby
Assistant Traffic Engineer at City of Modesto
We used them for our traffic signal network. We used the switches to communicate our traffic signal data and any type of data from the controllers through fibre and twisted-pair copper to backhaul to the traffic management center at City Hall. We are able to change signal timing, see if the traffic signals were going into flash, etc. We have communications from City Hall out to each of our traffic signal cabinets. View full review »

Alcatel is a good switching solution. I have not had any serious issues with the product in the last 10 years. I'm the direct contact of the administration so I would know. I don't remember if one or two times there was some little complication. But the issue is not actually from the switch side. The actual problem was in our fiber switch. So there were some very minor issues but nothing like a failure. As far as the rest of our infrastructure, we use no particular VPN device because now we have a separate firewall device. So we have configured the VPN in the firewall devices directly and for the storage, we are using HP solutions. View full review »

We primarily use the solution for our intra-site network. It's like a ring between our group sites. We also use the solution for the access switches, to provide links to PCs and printers on the client-side. View full review »
