Alcatel OmniSwitch 7000 Series

OmniSwitch 7000 Series
Carrier Class for the Enterprise
The OmniSwitch 7000 series, consisting of the OmniSwitch 7700 and 7800, are intelligent,
multi-layer switching platforms that provide unmatched availability and intelligence. These new
platforms are part of Alcatel’s next generation OmniSwitch 6600/7000/8000 product family,
designed for IP Communications and mission-critical environments. The OmniSwitch 7000 series
delivers carrier-class features and performance with simplified management for a wide range
of enterprise environments. These new switching platforms are optimized for voice and data
integration and provide non-blocking multi-Gigabit Ethernet capacity, multi-layer security,
carrier-class availability, and intelligent switching and routing services – all at wire speed.
The OmniSwitch 7000 series offers an extensive set of features making them ideal for a variety of
network environments such as:
• Enterprise core and edge applications
• LAN aggregation/distribution
• IP telephony/LAN wiring closets
• Gigabit Ethernet MANs
OmniSwitch 7700 and 7800
The OmniSwitch 7000 series product family consists of two switching products: the OmniSwitch 7700
and 7800. The OmniSwitch 7700 is a 10 slot, modular chassis that supports an aggregate switch
port capacity of 192 full duplex Gigabit Ethernet. The OmniSwitch 7800 is an 18 slot, high capacity
modular chassis that supports an aggregate switch port capacity of 384 full duplex Gigabit Ethernet.
These platforms are built from the ground up for IP Communications and converged environments,
featuring advanced QoS capabilities, and in-line power distribution for IP phones. They are designed
for continuous operation, with two center slots dedicated to chassis management modules (CMM),
with the OmniSwitch 7700 providing a CMM fabric capacity of 64 Gbps, and the OmniSwitch 7800
providing a CMM fabric capacity of 128 Gbps. They are available in redundant configurations with
an extensive array of Ethernet interfaces and port densities.
Key functionality includes:
• Smart continuous switching
• Multi-layer security
• Dynamic mobility
• Wire-speed intelligent switching/routing
• Wire-speed ser ver load balancing
• In-line power distribution

Carrier-Class Availability
D
Today’s successful business needs to have a network that can deliver continuous operation and
provide carrier class availability to support the demands of IP Communications and mission-
A
critical applications. Carrier-class availability ensures that users have access to resources and
services at all times. To ensure availability, the OmniSwitch 7000s have been designed with a
C
distributed architecture enabling carrier-class features, including full redundancy and resiliency.
A unique feature of the OmniSwitch 7000 series is smart continuous switching, which provides
B
continuous operation in the event of a failure. With smart continuous switching, all source learning,
Spanning Tree functions, and established routes are distributed throughout the network interface
modules instead of a central engine. In the event of a management module failure, the system
automatically switches over to the hot standby module with no loss of connections or fabric

capacity. Existing L2/L3 traffic, including voice conversations, will continue seamlessly without
interruption. Plus, Alcatel’s OmniSwitch 7000s are capable of creating new connections during this
failover – an industry first.
Network resiliency is a critical part of network availability and the OmniSwitch 7000s provide
extensive support including advanced routing redundancy protocols, load sharing, and mechanisms
for fast reconfiguration of links between switches, servers, and other network devices. The
OmniSwitch 7000s provide fully redundant and resilient system components to ensure continuous
operation. This includes:
• Redundant chassis subsystems
• Hot swappable modules
• Load-sharing components
• "Hitless loading" of optional software, such as advanced routing, without re-booting
• Downloadable bootstrap
• Image rollback to automatically re-load previous configurations and software versions
Alcatel’s OmniSwitch 7000s are leading the industry, delivering carrier-class availability and
functionality – all at an enterprise price.

Multi-layer Security
Enterprises are becoming borderless as they open their networks to e-business and external users. This
requires the network to provide easy user access yet have extensive security that can be managed
across a global enterprise. The OmniSwitch 7000 series provides multi-layer security with a vast
arsenal of features that can be implemented at the edge, the core, and throughout the network.
These include:
• User authentication
• VLANs
• Access control lists (ACLs)
• Authenticated switch access
• Encr yption
• NAT/PAT
• Denial of ser vice protection
Multi-layer security enables the building of sophisticated hardware and software-based solutions
that can be integrated with policy-based management and other technologies such as smart cards,
PKI, and biometrics for enhanced security implementations. For secure management there are
many features integrated into the architecture including authenticated user access, SNMPv3 and
SSL for encrypted sessions, and partitioned management for multi-tiered access and granular
network administration.
Distributed Intelligence
Distributed intelligence ensures that users and applications get the priority and performance they need
with ease-of-use management that extends across the enterprise. The OmniSwitch 7000 series features
state-of-the-art ASIC-based technology for intelligent, wire-speed everything including switching,
routing, ACLs, load balancing, and QoS. The switches provide application-aware switching for layers
2, 3, and 4 and the most advanced classification, prioritization, and queuing schemes. They also
support industry classification standards including 802.1Q/p, TOS, and DiffServ, and are enhanced
with complementary features such as extensive QoS mappings, and re-tagging of prioritization.
The OmniSwitch 7000s are well adapted to server connectivity offering embedded server load
balancing (no specialized hardware or software is required) and operates at wire-speed. This
flexibility makes them a perfect fit in small or medium core applications where server connectivity and
backbone functions are collapsed.

OneTouch Manageability
OmniVista, the Alcatel voice and data network management platform, features OneTouch
manageability allowing network managers to quickly configure and manage the switches in their
network. For example, OneTouch QoS, a feature of Alcatel’s policy management software
PolicyView, allows network managers to quickly assign QoS priorities to network traffic based on
the characteristics of different applications. With "one-click," every Alcatel switch in the network is
automatically configured.
The OmniSwitch 7000s also offer service-level and policy-based configurations with support for
LDAP directories enabling flexible integration with existing platforms and allowing extended
offerings. RMON support is also included with a choice of interfaces for administrators – a
command line interface (CLI), SNMP, a fully editable text-based configuration file, and standard
Web-browser interface.
Dynamic Mobility
Users are becoming increasingly mobile creating challenges for administrators. The OmniSwitch
7000s feature dynamic mobility, which simplifies the task of managing remote and mobile users.
Dynamic mobility allows users to move anywhere in the network without having to reconfigure
each time. Users can change locations, connect to a new network port, and have access to all
their resources without administrator intervention. Dynamic mobility can be fully integrated with
authentication to provide secure mobility across an entire network. The OmniSwitch 7000 series
provides the industry’s most extensive VLAN capabilities enabling flexible support for mobile
user environments.
