Build your own private cloud infrastructures from the data center to the corporate campus with Avaya Virtual Enterprise Network Architecture. This open virtualization solution helps dramatically simplify the design, deployment, and management of networks by enabling a network fabric within and between data centers and campuses. The virtual services fabric—based on Shortest Path Bridging—creates a multipath Ethernet network that relies on the Intermediate System-to-Intermediate System (IS-IS) protocol to dynamically build a topology between nodes.
Since provisioning is only required at the network edge, administrators can more quickly deploy new services. "Avaya's architecture greatly simplifies the deployment of vital business applications, potentially reducing delivery times by days or even weeks and taking human error out of the equation," says Mike Kincaid, Manager of Network Services and Telecommunications at UC Health. With Virtual Enterprise Network Architecture, the chance of an outage due to human provisioning errors—traditionally a significant cause of network downtime—can be virtually eliminated.
Additional benefits from this architecture include:
  • Add or turn on new services 25 times faster than traditional spanning tree networks, according to a 2011 Miercom report
  • Build the network core only once without redesign or reconfiguration
  • Deploy services wherever they are required, without constraints on the physical topology
  • Easily implement virtual machine migration, storage convergence, and business continuity/disaster recovery plans
