"The sense of digitization and 'Smart City' initiatives is driving Avaya for its new line of next-generation stackable Ethernet switches, the ERS 5900 series, optimised for Avaya Fabric Connect, allows companies to support new and emerging technologies as well as existing ones."

The ERS 5900 series enables enterprises to "smoothly" migrate to next generation architectures that unify the wired and wireless network while preparing organisations to adopt new Internet of Things strategies.

The series supports MACsec for enhanced security; supports Power over Ethernet Plus (POE+) for 802.11ac deployments; extensible to support 60W of Power over Ethernet (uPOE) for emerging IoT deployments such as smart lighting, medical systems and high-end video surveillance; and extensible to support the emerging 2.5GE and 5GE standard for 802.11ac Wave 2 deployments, as is the Avaya WLAN 9100 series.

“India is at the epicenter of innovation, digitization of technology is core to the development of the country. Avaya has a significant role in the Digital India initiative, SDN Fx is our core technology that delivers effortless networking infrastructure. By some estimates, it’s expected that nearly 25 billion devices will be connected to the network in just four short years. The ERS 5900 takes a major step towards delivering the simplicity and transitional ability needed as Unified Access for the Internet of Things moves into full force," said Priyadarshi Mohapatra, MD, Avaya India and SAARC.
