Nokia said Deutsche Telekom has selected 7750 Service Router (SR) platform to significantly expand capacity across its edge/core routing network as it prepares for next-generation broadband and 5G services.
Deutsche Telekom has already started the deployment in Greece, replacing and modernizing the operator’s existing IP network. Deutsche Telekom will start the rollout in Hungary in Q4 2020.
Deutsche Telekom, as part of its network modernization, will replace the existing IP edge/core network that was reaching its end of service with a new network that can cope with 5G and ultra broadband access requirements.
Deutsche Telekom selected the Nokia 7750 SR-7s routers as they support the full spectrum of provider edge, gateway and core functions for advanced residential, mobile and enterprise services.
The routers, powered by the programmable FP4 network processing silicon, will enable Deutsche Telekom to boost IP network capacity with deterministic performace for a top-quality subscriber experience.
Deutsche Telekom can support 5G interconnectivity and an increasing growth in backbone traffic driven by an increase in mobility applications, video streaming, gaming and other high-capacity demands such as remote working, Bernhard Scholl, Technology Europe VP Access Core & Transport at Deutsche Telekom, said.
The 7750 SR-s is managed by the Nokia Network Services Platform (NSP). NSP supports 5G IP transport with automated slicing across IP and optical transport layers with end-to-end orchestration of network resource provisioning and assurance operations.
This simplifies operations so that operators can create customer policies/slices with different network performance, quality and routing capabilities to respond quickly to fast-changing subscriber demand.
Vassilis Kazatzopoulos, head of International Sales DT Global Customer Business Team at Nokia, said: “Nokia 7750 SR-s series of IP routers takes router performance to the next level by delivering the massive scale, comprehensive feature set and platform versatility needed to stay ahead of evolving demands.”
