The Alcatel-Lucent OmniSwitch 6850E Stackable LAN Switch (SLS) is a versatile solution that can be positioned at the edge of mid- to large-size enterprise networks, at the aggregation layer, small enterprise core, and is suitable as advanced CPE in Ethernet access metro deployments. It is available in 24- and 48-port configurations and provides wire-rate layer-2 and layer-3 switching simultaneously for IPv4 and IPv6. Providing fine-grained controls for quality of service (QoS) and for security including network access control (NAC), the OmniSwitch 6850E offers full support for 802.3at-compliant power over Ethernet (PoE). It stacks with the existing OminSwitch 6850 family, allowing for smooth expansion of existing installations where PoE+ or SFP+ is needed.
The OmniSwitch 6850E family offers an extensive selection of gigabit fixed-configuration switches with up to four 10GigE uplinks, PoE and power supply options that accommodate most needs. All models are in a 1RU form factor and have two 10GBase-CX4 ports that can be used either for stacking or as a connector to a plug-in module for two additional 10 Gigabit SFP+ ports.
