By CBR Staff Writer

Telecommunications company Alcatel-Lucent has upgraded its data centre switching application or ‘fabric’, the Alcatel-Lucent Mesh with 40 gigabit Ethernet (40 GigE).

The Mesh now sports 40 GbE links throughout its architecture, which will increase data centre responsiveness and flexibility when deploying bandwidth-intensive applications such as VDI and video, the company said.

The company has also added 40 GigE capabilities to its OmniSwitch 10K Modular Ethernet LAN Chassis, a move coupled with the use of the shortest path bridging technique. This enables companies to transform their data centre networks into private clouds, with the flexibility to reconfigure resources.

Alcatel-Lucent Mesh has been verified as Citrix Ready, helping customers identify third-party application that enhances networking and cloud computing application from Citrix.

The telecom company will also announce its partnership with virtualisation giant Citrix, which will see the two working on to support the demands of mobile workstyles, cloud services, new applications being delivered across enterprises wide area networks (WANs) and desktop virtualisaiton.

Citrix Cloud Networking Group vice president and general manager Klaus Oestermann said with the Citrix cloud networking portfolio including NetScaler 10 and Branch Repeater 6 the company is giving enterprises the same cloud platform capabilities to power their business similar to large public cloud.

"As a charter member of Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise’s ecosystem program, we will be able to give our enterprise customers the confidence to deploy full interoperable Citrix Ready solutions," Oestermann said.
