The progressive evolution of the data center has created a new networking environment, no longer simply an extension of the enterprise campus; the data center has developed into an autonomous network with specific requirements and challenges. The Virtual Service Platform 9000 Series is the future-ready and future-proof solution to deliver the sought-after combination of performance, reliability, and scalability.

With mission-critical application demands increasing networks are required to ensure uninterrupted business operations and a quality user experience. Most networks are now called upon to provide 24/365 access, helping to drive business agility, accelerate time-to-service, respond to the needs of new applications and increase efficiency - all while IT budgets are being pressurized to deliver more and more efficiency.

Individual business imperatives will continue to evolve and so too must the network; cost-effectively adapting - forklift upgrades cause excessive disruption. The need is for a platform that is flexible and versatile, easily
accommodates both growth and change - a platform that delivers support for new applications ahead of the pack. Equally important, that platform must be space and energy efficient. The right communications solution is critical to
your success; the Avaya Virtual Services Platform 9000 Series is that solution.

The Virtual Services Platform 9000 (VSP 9000) Series is a next-generation solution for mission-critical data centers and cam- pus core networks, designed for the needs of large enterprises, and other such as multi-tenant operators. The VSP 9000

Series rises to meet customer require- ments for a future-proof, ultra-reliable network that easily and cost-effectively facilitates services integration; it provides a less complex, more agile virtual network infrastructure. It simplifies the network and helps reduce the cost of deploying new services; the VSP 9000 Series enables the building of a dynamic data center, helping to deliver 24/365 uninterrupted access to enterprise applications and services.

The VSP 9000 Series delivers industry- leading performance and scalability, with immediate support for very high-density 1 and 10 Gigabit Ethernet, high-density 40 Gigabit Ethernet, and future-ready for 100 Gigabit Ethernet. The fully scalable architecture helps ensure that network capacity seamlessly scales in line with performance requirements, without complex or expensive re-engineering.

The VSP 9000 Series transforms the net- work and, as a result, the business, providing an ultra-reliable foundation for services such as communications-enabled Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Customer Relationship Management (CRM) business processes, and unified communications. It not only simplifies the core network archi- tecture but also offers enhanced flexibility and scalability to enable faster time-to- service in both data center and very large campus core deployment scenarios. By enabling the virtualized compute infrastruc- ture to be more mobile, predictable, and available, the VSP 9000 Series fully delivers on the promise of centralizing services, all without compromising the high availability and performance, that’s required in an enterprise environment.
