Avaya Extends Network Virtualization to the Campus
Avaya VENA simplifies the deployment of next-generation applications and services by providing the critical network infrastructure needed to create private clouds. Whereas traditional deployments require significant manual provisioning, Avaya VENA enables simple, one-touch provisioning across the network. It helps increase network performance and efficiency, ensures resilience and reliability, and provides users with access to an always-on service that empowers communication anywhere, anytime, without interruption.
Avaya VENA delivers the next-generation enterprise network. It features a Virtual Services Fabric, built on the IEEE Shortest Path Bridging (802.1aq) standard, which acts as a single, unified backbone—allowing traffic to take the most optimal path through the network. Virtual Service Networks run across this fabric, providing an on-demand infrastructure that reduces costs, significantly improves time to service, and can virtually eliminate human error. It optimizes connections between application servers and end users, and allows for secure end-to-end traffic separation. Avaya VENA provides simplified provisioning, network authentication, better utilization of network resources, and streamlined tools for network management.
The Avaya ERS 8800 and ERS 8600 are resilient, flexible, and highly scalable modular Ethernet switching solutions that deliver versatile network virtualization for exceptional value. Unlike conventional ASIC-based hardware, the Avaya ERS 8800 and ERS 8600 feature unique field programmable network processors for all Interface Modules. This allows them to maintain full hardware-based performance and receive software upgrades, such as Avaya VENA, which take advantage of new features and functionality.
