Communication Server (CS) offers business communications designed for the digital age. It connects the entire enterprise and provides organisations the freedom, quality, and agility they need to grow their business.
OmniPCX Enterprise CS Purple is the next generation of business communications solution, featuring advanced and flexible
calls management, multimedia conversations, cloud openness and hybrid cloud connectivity with Rainbow™ by Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise to integrate mobility, video conferencing, and secure group messaging into your business applications.
Rainbow is an enterprise-grade, cloud communication platform fully developed in Europe with services delivered from secured data centres across the globe.
Depending on your needs, Rainbow can be deployed on-premises, hybrid or from the cloud. The open architecture and rich-telephony feature support allow for connecting your existing telephony system and integration of Rainbow into business processes and other SaaS solutions.
The ALE Autonomous Network architecture provides automated service provisioning between users, devices, and applications and ensures a robust network infrastructure by automating moves, adds, and changes, reducing the time and effort it takes to maintain and operate a network.
The Autonomous Network ensures a seamless experience between wired and wireless networks. It provides a high-performance network with ultrafast convergence, secure access control and hardened switch OS. Our Alcatel-Lucent OmniAccess Stellar WLAN portfolio is coupled with our comprehensive Alcatel-Lucent OmniSwitch LAN portfolio that supports deployment ranging from access, to core, and data centres.
A single network management system (NMS) provides an additional level of integration between wired and wireless networks. The Alcatel-Lucent OmniVista NMS provides unified service management and network-wide visibility, improving IT efficiency and business agility.
Automation from the edge to the core
The Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise Autonomous Network architecture operates from the network edge to the core.
Unified edge. Users, devices, and IoT can connect to the Local Area Network (LAN) and/or Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) with a consistent connection experience and performance capabilities. Switching from fixed LAN to wireless LAN with the same device is simple and secure.
Unified fabric. LAN, WLAN, core/data centre, and soon, a branch portfolio with cloud management and embedded security.
Network services automation. This is the key layer in the autonomous network that enables network automation through programmability, provisioning, analytics, the Rainbow by Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise workflow engine, as well as third-party integration.
The latest and greatest Wi-Fi technology to be heading to market is 802.11ax, or as it is also known, Wi-Fi 6. What the “6” means is that it is the sixth generation of Wi-Fi technology, which is a lot easier to remember than the various letters placed after 802.11!
Wi-Fi 6 offers many benefits, however the most significant are:
1. Better raw performance. The multiple user, multiple input, multiple output (MU-MIMO) downlink/uplink and ability to scale up to eight streams help increase throughput by up to four times, and support for 1024 quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM) packs more bits further increasing capacity.
2. Better dense client environment support with orthogonal frequency division multiple access (OFDMA), for the massively connected world of users and the Internet of Things (IOT).
Lower latency which translates into better performing applications.
