OmniSwitch 6450-10

The Alcatel-Lucent OmniSwitch™ 6450 Stackable Gigabit Ethernet LAN value switch family includes a series of 10 port models (non-PoE, PoE, Fast and Gigabit Ethernet) for classroom, workgroup and small enterprise segments. Designed with an optimized size, low-power consumption, fan-less operation and a rich software feature set, the OmniSwitch 6450-10 models provide a highly available, self-protective, easily managed and eco-friendly collocation solution.

Service providers offering managed services have the option to install the Metro Services license enabling a set of Metro Ethernet features. This allows the OmniSwitch 6450-10 port models to be quickly integrated into the provider's network as advanced customer premise equipment (CPE) devices.

Small Cell providers will especially like the OmniSwitch 6450-P10S especially built for indoor Small Cell deployments requiring higher PoE power and 1588v2 precision timing protocol.

The Alcatel-Lucent OmniSwitch 6450-10 models use the latest technologies and AOS innovations.

Solutions benefiting from the OmniSwitch 6450-10 switches are:

  • Classroom and workgroup networks
  • Small Enterprise or Branch office networks
  • Commercial and residential managed services

Models available:

  • OmniSwitch 6450-10
  • OmniSwitch 6450-P10
  • OmniSwitch 6450-10L
  • OmniSwitch 6450-P10L
  • OmniSwitch 6450-P10S

Benefits: OmniSwitch 6450-10

  • Small form factor and fan less design (zero noise output) make the OmniSwitch 6450-10 models ideal for workgroup, library and classroom environments
  • Start with the fast ethernet models (10L/P10L) and later migrate to gigabit user port speeds with license upgrade
  • The –P10 PoE model offers 120W of PoE power and are 802.3at compliant.
  • The –P10S offers 280W of PoE power, is 802.3at and 4 pair PoE compliant with Power over HDBaseT
  • Create advanced managed services CPE when adding the Metro license option
  • The low power consumption reduces operating expenses and cooling costs, lowering OPEX and resulting in faster return on investment (ROI)
  • Leads the industry in price/feature-performance ratio and offers customers a cost-efficient advanced layer 2+ network technology solution either in fast ethernet or gigabit ethernet options
  • Provides outstanding features and performance for supporting scalable, real-time voice, data and video applications for converged networks
  • Allows existing AOS customers/users immediate familiarity with the product from day one, reducing their total cost of ownership (TCO) and training costs. New users may choose the method of switch access most beneficial to their needs
  • Limited lifetime hardware warranty eliminates service program costs and ongoing service renewals, lowering TCO and allowing customers to reach ROI targets more quickly
