Wouldn’t it be nice…


Wouldn’t it be nice to seamlessly
deploy applications
across
multiple Data
Centers

in an instant..?

Have you ever been frustrated by delays in activating new
applications and services..?


Wouldn’t it be nice to never again having to configure the Core of
the network..?

Have you ever experienced an outage due to human
-
error fault
during change..?


Wouldn’t it be nice to remove entire layers of complexity and
deliver real business
-
centric agility..?

Have you ever wondered why, with all of this complexity, that IT
still struggles to respond to the increased rate of change..?

What is the ERS 8800..?


A new solution that consolidates the field
-
proven reliability of the ERS 8600
with the enhanced virtualized functionality and improved scalability that a
new generation of software delivers


Has been developed to match the transition occurring in Customer networks:
the progressive move to emerging, highly
-
virtualized networking
infrastructures from what was largely a single dimension environment


Is simply the latest evolution of the venerable ERS 8000 Series: which has
already delivered the ERS 8100 Edge Switch, ERS 8300 Edge/Core Switch,
and of course the ERS 8600 Core/Edge Switch on which the ERS 8800 is
based


Is the go
-
forward solution for new Customers seeking the most reliable and
versatile Campus LAN Core Switch, additionally new software ensures high
levels of investment protection and continuity of service for returning ERS

Modular Competitive Landscape


6500
-
E has limited compatibility between Chassis,
Supervisors, Line Cards, & Software causing high TCO;
ERS 8600 provides excellent investment protection


4500
-
E lacks the performance, 10G density & scalability
compared to ERS 8300 that offers higher performance &
10G port density

Cisco: Catalyst 6500
-
E claims to
preserve investment for Core;
Catalyst 4500
-
E offers advanced
functions & performance for
Aggregation


It is true that 8200zl & 5400zl are priced lower than ERS
8600 & ERS 8300 but Customers pay big penalties for
getting less denser & resilient platforms as well as lower
performance


The 3Com acquisition will add more advanced products
but product rationalization in the progress

HP ProCurve/3Com: 8200zl &
5400zl claims to provide the
performance/density/scalability
combined with low pricing to
build their networks


EX 8200 is a year old platform that competes more with
our VSP 9000 & will ship in 2H10. VSP 9000 will offer
much higher switching architecture, 10G port density &
ultra
-
resiliency.

Juniper: EX 8200 claims to offer
high performance, line rate 10G &
common Juno OS

Stackable Competitive Landscape


Stacking capacity is limited, only 32Gbps for the 3750 and
marginally more for the 3750
-
E: compared to 1.152Tbps
for the ERS 5600, and even 32Gbps for the entry
-
level
2500


Cisco places a lot of emphasis on Layer 3 at the Edge: this
increases complexity, cost, & makes restoration more
difficult

Cisco: 3750 is the Stackable
option; the 3750
-
E offers
additional capacity; 2960 & 3560
are standalone
-
only


ProCurve doesn’t offer any genuine Stacking, just
consolidated Management


3Com products are more advanced, with real Stacking


But the acquisition will ultimately force product
rationalization

HP ProCurve/3Com: Broad range
offering typical but
unspectacular functionality;
3Com is more advanced but the
acquisition complicates things


Stacking capacity on the 4200 is good and Layer 3 is
strong across the board, however Juniper do not have any
unique high
-
availability solution


Emphasis on L3 increases costs, complexity, and makes
restoration more difficult


Warranty is very uncompetitive

Juniper: EX 4200 is high
