AlcaLu Extends SDN, DPI in Enterprise Gear
MAIDENHEAD, UK -- The Enterprise division of Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) is today unveiling new technology to address the challenges created by pervasive mobility and the explosion of new applications being introduced within enterprises.
As part of its Unified Access approach for both wired and wireless networks, Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise is to introduce an innovative access switch and additional network capabilities, giving IT departments more visibility and control of the network, while employees and customers gain flexibility to use the applications they need. Fueled by cloud services and the BYOD phenomenon, the number and type of applications used in enterprises is growing, requiring IT teams to be armed with new tools and capabilities that ensure business goals are met and the network remains secure.
Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise is adding deep packet inspection at the wired and wireless access layer expanding its Application Fluent Network capabilities. It can now consolidate this information with network analytics tools that help IT teams gain improved visibility into the applications, and also create policies and enforce them at the edge of the network to secure and optimise delivery of applications to employees and customers.
