SPB-M Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise
Enterprise network managers are being forced to do more with less. Their networks are growing in size and complexity. They need streamlined solutions to improve the performance and simplicity of their networks. Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise has added many new technologies to address these needs. Key among them is Shortest Path Bridging MAC in MAC mode (SPB-M). SPB-M helps improve network performance and stability while offering great exibility.
SPB-M offers many improvements over older bridging and routing technologies including greater scalability, better bandwidth through improved improved link utilization, automa- tion, while being compatible with existing technology. SPB-M on the OmniSwitch works in conjunction with Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise smart network edge and access features while providing MPLS like scalability and service separation.
