Avaya unveils new offerings for fabric-enabled networking

Wednesday 17 April 2013 | 17:33 CET | News
Avaya has unveiled new offerings including a fabric-enabled multi-service edge device and a new model for IP Multicast that improves efficiency, reliability and scalability over traditional approaches. These new offerings will be showcased at Interop 2013. Based on an enhanced implementation of Shortest Path Bridging, an open, standards-based, extensible fabric technology, Avaya VENA Fabric Connect delivers an array of network services, including Layer 2 and Layer 3 virtualisation with optimised routing and now, fully integrated support for IP Multicast. Avaya VENA Fabric Connect allows customers to gradually phase out multiple complex legacy technologies and enable all services through a single, new technology. The IP Multicast over Avaya Fabric Connect uses a single protocol as opposed to several complex  protocol overlays, supports tens of thousands of streams, provides sub-second failover, enables single command configuration on end-points, drives network traffic through the shortest latent path and is designed for multi-tenant functionality to support virtualisation. IP Multicast over Avaya Fabric Connect is currently available on the ERS 8800 platform and later this year on the VSP 9000 and the VSP 4000 platforms. 

The VSP 4000 is a fabric-enabled multiservice, multitenant edge device that further extends the Avaya VENA Fabric Connect across the entire network to the campus, metro or WAN edge. The VSP 4000 is delivered on a Gigabit/10Gigabit access device, equipped with full multi-service functionality, a carrier-grade operating system, PoE+ support and AC/DC power options that can deliver the following deployment models: smaller enterprises, distributed enterprises, secure traffic separation and IP video surveillance networks.
