The adoption of cloud services and the ‘BYOD’ phenomenon are driving an increase in the number and type of applications that are being used in business. As a result, IT teams need to be armed with new tools and capabilities that ensure business goals are met and the network remains secure.

In this launch, Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise offers enhancements to the Unified Access wired and wireless portfolio and network management system to provide more visibility and control of applications traversing the network. With the introduction of a new, innovative access switch – the OmniSwitch 6860 - and additional network capabilities, IT departments gain more visibility and control of the network, while employees and customers gain flexibility to use the applications they need.

Adding deep packet inspection at the wired and wireless access layer expands Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise’s Application Fluent Network capabilities. Information can now be consolidated with network analytics tools that help IT teams gain improved visibility into the applications, and also create policies and enforce them at the edge of the network to secure and optimize delivery of applications to employees and customers.
An end-to-end SDN architecture is completed in this launch with the support of SDN interfaces reaching across the access, to the core and into the data center, providing customers investment protection and enabling interoperability with third-party solutions.
