Avaya Ethernet Routing Switch 8800 Series or ERS 8800, is a range of modular chassis products that combine hardware router and switch used in computer networking, designed and manufactured by Avaya.[1] When an ERS 8000 Chassis, a passive device in its own right, is equipped with the 8895 SF/CPU, this system is known as an Ethernet Routing Switch 8800; conversely, when equipped with an 8692 SF/CPU module (with SuperMezz) the system is known as an Ethernet Routing Switch 8600.


On December 2011 this system completed evaluation and certification by the U.S. Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC) testing center for use in the United States Department of Defense as an Assured Services Local Area Network (ASLAN).[2][3][4]
