Core Switches

Dice Communications offers a precise portfolio of network infrastructure solutions for Enterprise networks, data centers, campuses and small businesses.

While there are many products around, what enables Dice Communications and our Alcatel-Lucent product portfolio to dominate the market is that we offer sufficient back-end infrastructure and support for enterprise users. Our portfolio creates the network foundation for your next-generation unified fabric data center and campus core. Our portfolio delivers a comprehensive feature set and open source programmable tools for software-defined network (SDN) deployments. It offers high density with application awareness and performance analytics.


The Intelligent Fabric technology in selected Alcatel-Lucent OmniSwitch products provides a powerful and flexible set of tools to accelerate and automate network setup and expansion. Intelligent Fabric technology delivers the Auto Fabric functionality in the OmniSwitch. Auto Fabric is very flexible; it gives the advantage of reduced deployment time by automation and reducing mistakes made during manual configuration. When specific custom configurations are needed, automatic configuration can be used as the base for further customization. On the other hand, automatic configuration can be completely switched off for total customization.
