Avaya Virtual Services Platform with Compact Form-Factor

The New Best Practice for Mainstream Networking

A midsize network core traditionally uses oversized Chassis-based Ethernet Switches that can deliver port density, reliability, scalability, and performance—but this solution can also be expensive, complex, and time-consuming to operate. The Virtual Services Platform 8000 Series, with its Compact Form-Factor, brings watershed innovation. Gain a higher port density, a better price per port, and a much lower entry price. Get operational simplicity and reduced operational costs. See the benefits typically associated with large Chassis-based solutions, but none of the penalties.

Avaya's Switch Cluster Technology Virtualizes Multiple Devices

Reduced Costs and Improved Resiliency

Always-on networking is delivered by a unified solution, not a single hardware feature. Avaya’s Switch Cluster technology virtualizes multiple devices, making them appear as a single logical system, and providing a physical resiliency aspect to high availability. This helps assure that no single point-of-failure can disrupt dual/multi-homed connectivity, extending high availability across your network and enhancing your resiliency posture. In addition to the various high-availability features offered by premium Chassis-based products, a Switch Cluster solution delivers physical independence and isolated control planes—for process separation, isolation, and greater protection—and supports in-service software upgrades.

Avaya Switch Clustering, Add Network Switches as You Grow

Pay as You Grow

Large Chassis-based solutions often are noted for supporting expansion and scalability—but the assurance comes with costs, including an initial capital outlay, everyday operational burdens, and future expansion components. Instead, leverage Switch Cluster—start with the capacity you need today, and add more Virtual Services Platform 8000 Series Switches as demand grows, integrating multiple devices into a unified system. You’ll have an ultra-cost-effective solution that lets you scale up by simply adding capacity when and where you need it.

Virtualize Your Network with Avaya Fabric Connect

Replace Complexity with Capability

Traditionally, to provision a new service or to change existing ones, you had to touch every device in the path, configuring each device to enable both active and redundant links. Leveraging Avaya Fabric Connect technology to virtualize your network delivers fundamental change. In provisioning, you touch only the specific device that is directly providing service to the application end point—all service attributes are immediately propagated to nodes within the Fabric Connect cloud.

Software Defined Networking and Software-Defined Data Center

Your Future-Ready Network

Part of Avaya’s SDN Fx Architecture, the Virtual Services Platform 8000 Series delivers support for key enabling capabilities. Fabric Attach facilitates the automatic attachment of end-point devices, empowering businesses to dynamically deploy services and devices in a highly virtualized world. Fabric Extend supports the interconnection of the Fabric Connect private cloud over any IP-based network. This enables Fabric Connect’s Ethernet-based value proposition to extend wherever IP connectivity is available.
