Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise Demonstrates Practical SDN Use Cases for Businesses, Joins sFlow.org
-- Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise is moving solutions forward with inherent application intelligent SDN capabilities on its OmniSwitch platform
-- Creating standards-based solutions with sFlow and OpenFlow to deliver scalable SDN solutions
-- Becomes latest vendor to join sFlow.org in support of sFlow standards and enhanced SDN development

SINGAPORE, May 27, 2014 - (ACN Newswire) - Software Defined Networking (SDN) is on the minds of most businesses these days as a way to transform networks that deliver virtualized services, while saving costs. As such, SDN sits at the core of the Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise Application Fluent Network (AFN) vision enabling enterprise data centers to adapt to new application intelligent services.

Most SDN solutions disrupt IT and business operations since they require a complete revamp of the infrastructure and services. Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise offers a scalable solution that enables inherent, application intelligent SDN capabilities, keeping the CAPEX-OPEX budget under control while meeting business objectives.

This week Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise is announcing further development of its AFN vision by successfully having demonstrated interoperability using standards based sFlow and OpenFlow initiatives with InMon for enterprise scale SDN analytics.

Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise, with hybrid OpenFlow capabilities enabled on the OmniSwitch platforms, and InMon, with their sFlow-RT, provide enterprises the benefit of deploying practical scalable SDN solutions.

-- When network convergence creates challenges like competition by different workloads for network resources, SDN can help. In particular, large "elephant" flows due to virtual machine migrations, storage, backup, and replication can interfere with small "mice" flows such as web requests, database transactions, and social media actions that are sensitive to delay. The Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise and InMon demonstration shows how elephant flows can be identified and controlled so that both types of traffic obtain optimal performance.

-- Security detection and enforcement is an on-going challenge for enterprises. The Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise and InMon solution enables enterprises to extend security policies throughout the network with distributed enforcement. The demonstrations show how a denial-of-service attack can be detected and enforced in a distributed fashion across the network in real-time.

Also of note, Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise is the latest vendor to sign up with the sFlow.org. sFlow(R) is an industry standard technology for monitoring high speed switched networks. It gives complete visibility into the use of networks enabling performance optimization, accounting/billing for usage, and defense against security threats. sFlow.org drives the widespread adoption of sFlow by end users, network equipment and software vendors.
