NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. -- Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) is to launch a flexible and resilient hardware-based edge routing platform – the 7750 SR-a - to offer high density, high performance aggregation of mobile backhaul, business and residential services, in addition to rich service functionality, in a compact, modular design.
The new platform, which extends the company’s 7750 Service Router family, is being introduced to help fixed, mobile and cable operators, governments and enterprises to drive down costs even as they meet escalating traffic demands, a key factor highlighted by new modelling research from Bell Labs.
Network operators face a significant challenge in terms of satisfying the appetite for high-bandwidth multimedia services while also simplifying and converging networks in order to streamline costs. By leveraging Alcatel-Lucent’s FP3 400G Network Processor, the 7750 SR-a addresses this challenge, with a resilient platform that delivers scalability beyond its compact size. It allows providers to support the simultaneous delivery of mobile, business and residential services and creates new value through the delivery of innovative new services.
With its comprehensive router portfolio – which recently expanded to include the Virtualized Service Router (VSR) - Alcatel-Lucent is giving service providers both the specialized hardware and router software necessary to build a flexible network with the right performance and economics for the cloud era.
