LGS Innovations Provides Service Router Platform to Meet DoD Unified Capabilities Requirements
Herndon, Va. — July 22, 2014 — LGS Innovations, a provider of next generation networking solutions and the exclusive reseller of Alcatel-Lucent products in the federal government marketplace, announced today that its Alcatel-Lucent 7705 Service Aggregate Router and 5620 Service Aware Manager have been certified for use in Department of Defense networks and placed on the Unified Capabilities Approved Products List (UC APL).
The Alcatel-Lucent 7705 Service Aggregation Router (SAR) is optimized for multiservice adaptation, aggregation and routing, especially onto a modern, economical Ethernet and IP/MPLS infrastructure. Leveraging the powerful Service Router Operating System (SR OS) and 5620 Service Aware Manager (SAM), it is available in compact, low power consumption platforms delivering highly available services over resilient and flexible network topologies. Strong Quality of Service (QoS) capabilities ensure service-level awareness and the effective management of multiple traffic streams.
Equipment footprints and energy costs are largely reduced. Industries, enterprises and government organizations can deploy with confidence, achieving reliable and resilient support of legacy and advanced services
“The certification of the 7705 portfolio gives the DoD access to the same network technology that has helped the world’s largest service providers lower operating costs, improve resiliency and simplify management of their networks,” said LGS Innovations Products, Solutions and Applications Division President Paul Selby. “The certification of the 7705 further demonstrates Alcatel-Lucent’s commitment to serving Department of Defense customers. The 7705 portfolio delivers industry-leading IP/MPLS and pseudowire capabilities in compact platforms that can reliably and securely aggregate multiple media, service and transport protocols on an economical packet transport infrastructure.”
The Office of the Secretary of Defense Information Infrastructure (OSD-NII) has mandated that all DoD Program Managers purchase products from the UC APL. The Unified Capabilities Interoperability and Information Assurance Certification was administered by the DoD Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC), which validated data analysis, conducted product testing, and evaluated the service router platform for conformance and interoperability to UC requirements.
