Components

The Alcatel-Lucent DCC solution comprises a set of pre-defined use cases that provide different architectural scenarios for interconnecting data centres or large blocks of servers to other servers in one or more data centres. The use cases are based on the Alcatel-Lucent Service Router (SR) and Alcatel-Lucent 1830 Photonic Service Switch (PSS) portfolios as well as the Alcatel-Lucent 5620 Service Aware Manager (SAM).

Alcatel-Lucent service capabilities are a key part of the Alcatel-Lucent Data Centre Connect solution. In addition to products, the solution includes services for network design, planning and, most important, a data centre automation offering. The automation offering is the Relevance platform, which is provided by ReachView Technologies™, an Alcatel-Lucent company. Our services team can use the Relevance platform to integrate multiple management systems within a customer’s environment.
