Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise

Where Everything Connects

Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise is a leading provider of enterprise communications solutions and services, from the office to the cloud. Building on an established heritage of innovation and entrepreneurial spirit, ALE operates globally with 2700+ employees in 100+ countries worldwide, with headquarters near Paris, France. ALE also has offices in every major country in Europe, the US, as well as across the Middle East and Asia-Pacific regions.

Sol Distribution is Alcatel-Lucent Enterprises leading distributor in the UK for its data networking solutions.  ALE can offer networking products in key areas:

Wireless LAN

ALE can provide a wide variety of indoor and outdoor access points including Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) and Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) technologies support versatile deployments in any size network.

Controllerless Architecture

ALE WLAN products do not use controllers, they use a distributed intelligence model, where the tasks that would have been performed by the controller are distributed across the access points, and if one goes down, they can intelligently reroute traffic to maintain coverage. This architecture can support up to 4,000 APs in a single deployment (10,000 by the end of 2020)

Advantages of ALE WLAN Architecture:
• No single point of failure
• No Bottlenecks
• Simple deployment
• Improved security, resiliency, performance
• Simplified operations, low TCO

LAN Switching

ALE manufacturers an extensive range of fixed, chassis-based, and hardened switches, to provide flexible, enterprise-grade solutions from the access, to the distribution and core:

Campus Access Switches

Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise provides a, complete set of stackable LAN access switches with market-leading resiliency, embedded security, and dynamic network performance tuning for real time application delivery.

Campus LAN Core Switches

A new generation of wire-rate 10GbE/40GbE core switches, with market leading port density and switching capacity, reduce the need for oversubscription and prepare your network for future growth.

Hardened Ethernet

ALE’s hardened ethernet range offers a range of DIN rail and 19” rack mountable fanless switches that can be deployed and operate reliably in harsh environments and can withstand electromagnetic fields, high vibrations, dust/dirt and high humidity. These switches are ideal for a wide variety of Industrial applications such as Intelligent Transportation, Rail, Smart Cities and Utilities.

Data Centre Switches

Low-latency, SDN-ready, high-capacity, modular Ethernet LAN switches, field-proven in enterprise, service provider and data centre environments. ALE offers a high density, multi-Terabit modular platform offering linear scaling, excellent redundancy, resiliency and high availability.

Intelligent Fabric for Data Centre Networks

Intelligent Fabric (iFab) is the ALE solution for a high-performance, fully automated Data Centre architecture. A traditional Spine & Leaf architecture has some limitations. The ALE solution offers a POD and MESH network fabric architecture based on Shortest Path Bridging, an IEEE standard protocol which eliminates Spanning Tree Protocol (STP). It uses all links simultaneously, is extremely scalable and simplifies network configuration and management tremendously.

Comprehensive Unified Management

ALE OmniVista offers a “single pane of glass” management solution for both LAN & WLAN. This single platform enables operators to easily provision, manage and maintain all network elements, with alarms, unified security policies, and virtualisation. It also provides advanced network analytics for a full visibility into both wired and wireless devices, IoT endpoints and applications, as well as predictive analysis for forward planning.
