EDGE 2020 Goes Virtual
<p>Alcatel OmniStack 6300 Series Gigabit Ethernet Switch offers superior value in high-availability, secure and easy-to-manage workgroup connectivity</p>
<p>Sydney, Wednesday, July 14, 2004: Alcatel (Paris: CGEP.PA and NYSE: ALA) today announced a “Buy ten get one free” promotion for its latest Gigabit Ethernet Switch.</p>
<p>The buy ten, get one free promotion starts now and runs until August 30, 2004. There’s no limit to the number of free switches so for every 10 Alcatel OmniStack 6300 series switches purchased, customers will always get one free.</p>
<p>A fixed configuration triple-speed Gigabit Ethernet switch, it delivers the industry’s best value in highly-available, secure, and easy to manage workgroup connectivity.</p>
<p>The OmniStack 6300 delivers more capabilities than workgroup switches twice the cost and offers superior network performance, faster application response times and enhanced user productivity.
It is ideal for the wiring closet, edge deployments and branch offices, layer 2 aggregation, and data centre server clusters. It also satisfies enterprise requirements to support large video and graphic files, CRM/ERP database applications, data storage and backup, and emerging unified communications applications.</p>
<p>The OmniStack 6300 provides far stronger security than similarly priced switches with many security features switches twice the cost do not have—supporting Alcatel’s CrystalSec model for strong switch security.
“Network infrastructure is vital to next-generation business applications,” said Simon Rachowski, product marketing manager, data, for Alcatel’s Enterprise Solutions in Australia.</p>
<p>“Pairing high-end features and value lets enterprises protect current investments and migrate seamlessly with Gigabit Ethernet to take advantage of new, business-enhancing applications.”</p>
