Alcatel-Lucent has unveiled new software defined networking (SDN) technologies for its OmniSwitch Ethernet LAN portfolio.

Alcatel-Lucent is expanding its Application Fluent Network vision to help enterprises build SDN-based solutions in an affordable manner. These additional SDN capabilities, featuring automation and provisioning, support practical use cases which solve real world issues in the enterprise, making SDN the foundation for a new and improved user experience.

The new capabilities, in combination with other solutions, will enable abilities such as dynamically routing traffic for optimal performance on a wireless network; enhancing security for application traffic flows through detection of unwanted application or traffic patterns; and improved delivery of applications in software defined data centres.

"These capabilities ensure that OmniSwitch solutions are open and will work seamlessly with the company's partner ecosystem and industry SDN leaders' solutions," said Stephane Robineau, general manager and vice president, Enterprise Networks business, Alcatel-Lucent.

OpenFlow support and OpenStack integration are available now on the Alcatel-Lucent OmniSwitch product via a free software upgrade or at no additional charge when a new system is purchased.
