Alcatel is planning to power its OmniSwitch stackable product line with Intel’s Media Switch IXE2424 device. The Layer 2-4 switch/router device will enable Alcatel to support high bandwidth voice, video and data applications at wire speed.

"The Intel Media Switch Device complements our traditional ASIC-based switching solutions," said John Bailey, Alcatel senior vice president of product development. "The Media Switch enables us to bring low-cost, highly functional switching products to market more quickly by coupling it with Alcatel's Operating System, which by design we have made portable to multiple hardware platforms."

Intel’s device features four Gigabit Ethernet ports and 24 10/100 ports and is also capable of supporting traffic prioritization, MPLS tagging and Quality of Service.

"Alcatel's selection of the Intel Media Switch enables it to deliver cost-effective, high- performance, and highly scalable stackable solutions to meet the current and future switching requirements of their customers," added Joe Jensen, general manager, Embedded Intel Architecture Division.

Alcatel’s products will also incorporate Intel’s LXT9785 10/100 8-port transceiver to simplify multi-port switch designs.
