Alcatel-Lucent Unveils VitalQIP 1200 Platform

This week's release of the VitalQIP 1200 is the latest iteration of Alcatel-Lucent's IP management platform dating back over ten years. The company said the VitalQIP 1200 delivers more performance than its predecessors and offers dual power supplies for increased reliability.

On the DNS side, the VitalQIP 1200 can deliver up to 100,000 DNS queries per second. For DHCP services, it can deliver 12,000 leases per second. The VitalQIP 1200 is built on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and is also available as a software appliance.

The VitalQIP 1200 arrives as the market and need for IP and DNS management devices is likely to grow. Steve Wiggins, director of product management for VitalQIP at Alcatel-Lucent, said that often the way that organizations attempt to manage IP address allocations is by tracking them via a spreadsheet.

"When we look at IPv6 or large systems of 5,000 or more addresses it becomes too difficult to manage IPs without a system," Wiggins told InternetNews.com.
