Alcatel-Lucent OmniSwitch Ethernet Switches Valuable Features

James Ashby
Assistant Traffic Engineer at City of Modesto

The fibre ports that are 10 Gb capacity helped with the travel of a lot of regular as well as video data. Fibre can handle a lot more virtual data than copper twisted-pair, so we got a lot more data and a lot more traffic signals back through the fibre ports, faster, than with copper.

The switch provides an edge solution for campus networks running many devices and the management of this edge solution is very user-friendly. The edge solution is great for high availability. With the edge solution, each traffic signal has several items that need to be plugged into the traffic signal switch that we're testing, and with all the ports being used, the switches worked fine. We also didn't have any security issues with the edge solution; that part was great.

The speeds the switch provides are excellent. I don't know the exact speeds, but they were fast enough for internet communications through the switches when sending data and receiving data.

We are not using many of the extended features of the product because our network here in this company is a very standard network. We are using optical fiber connectivity in all our departments, so the aggregation is good. The VLAN feature is very good and easy to manage. We have multiple VLAN and because the Alcatel product is easy to use, it is easy to manage and configure them through the switches.

The solution has a very good web interface. It makes it easy to manage everything.

The command-line interface is very powerful. 

We can do most of what we need to do within the web interface. It allows us to view or to configure certain changes.

The most valuable feature of this solution is the wireless access points that enable direct access to clusters. This is also a very stable and scalable solution.
