Alcatel-Lucent Converged Network Solution High-Quality User Experience with an Application Fluent Network
23 May 2012
With the increased adoption of multimedia applications such as video, Unified Communications, collaboration suites, and the rapid adoption of next-generation devices and mobility, it is imperative to have a robust LAN infrastructure that is always-on and provides sufficient bandwidth, switching capacity and automatic adjustments to support unpredictable traffic patterns. The Alcatel-Lucent Converged Network Solution provides a reliable and high-quality end-user experience with an intelligent network that can automatically adjust its behavior based on the context of the users, devices, and applications involved in what Alcatel-Lucent terms a“conversation”.
Tolly measured failover time and its effect on multimedia applications in the event of possible failures in the network - including power supply, core switch, and link failures. Tolly found the Alcatel-Lucent Converged Network Solution provides a sustained, high-quality user experience for video and voice, recovering from failures within 55ms, on average, when deploying the OS6900 and OS6450. Tolly also verified the network’s capability to adjust automatically based on the context of the user or device connected, as well as possessing functionality which facilitates operations, management and administration.
Tests were conducted using the Alcatel-Lucent Compact Core Architecture™, featuring a selection of the recently-launched OmniSwitch LAN Switch Series.
