As a fully-featured Layer 3+ operating system, AlliedWare Plus includes an extensive array of features that delivers the performance and functionality required by the most demanding environments. Some of the innovative features that can be found within AlliedWare Plus include:
Allied Telesis Management Framework (AMF)
Based on Software-Defined Networking (SDN) principles, AMF is an embedded technology native to Allied Telesis switches that delivers real and immediate value to businesses. Many enterprises see SDN as the “silver bullet” to simplifying and optimizing the management and performance of their environment. But many applications of SDN today are relevant only to very large data centers. However, IT’s most pressing needs demand a single, converged infrastructure that can be managed as a single entity, reducing complexity and TCO and allowing more to be done with less.
Virtual Chassis Stacking (VCStack™)
Using Allied Telesis VCStack in a network allows multiple switches to appear as a single virtual chassis. VCStack and link aggregation provide a solution where network resources are spread across the virtual chassis members, ensuring device and path resiliency. Virtualization of the network core ensures uninterrupted access to information when needed.
Ethernet Protection Switched Ring (EPSRing™)
Allied Telesis EPSRing solutions provide high performance, high reliability, flexible, scalable distributed network cores. The core can be as small or as large as is needed, connected by copper or fiber, or even copper and fiber in the same ring. The core bandwidth can be anything from 100Mbps to multiples of 10Gbps. The recovery time when links or nodes go down is extremely fast — as low as 50 ms, making this solution ideal for the provision of converged voice, video and data services.
