Nokia, a leader in telecommunications technology, has unveiled its groundbreaking 7730 Service Interconnect Router (SXR) platforms, offering a groundbreaking approach to delivering advanced service routing into IP access and aggregation networks. These platforms are designed to meet the growing capacity and capabilities demanded by broadband investments and evolving cloud network architectures.
The 7730 SXR platforms, powered by Nokia’s new FPcx fully programmable network processing unit (NPU) silicon, represent the latest innovation in routing silicon optimized for service providers. They are designed to cater to the needs of smaller and distributed IP service edge network locations, complementing Nokia’s comprehensive IP routing portfolio.
These cutting-edge routers are purpose-built for service providers and network builders delivering mission-critical services. They aim to provide secure, assured, and sustainable IP services while simplifying service evolution and network automation.
Key Features of the Nokia 7730 SXR Platforms:
Powered by Nokia’s FPcx routing silicon, a new line of fully programmable network processors designed for next-generation IP access, aggregation, and edge applications.
Enabled by SR Linux, Nokia’s open, resilient, and extensible network operating system (NOS).
Support for MACsec, ANYsec, and DDoS mitigation with traffic inspection to ensure secure connectivity.
Deterministic performance, advanced Quality of Service (QoS) capabilities, and in-service software upgrades for assured IP services.
Power efficiency and reduced Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) through automation and support for efficient network designs.
Changing Network Landscape:
Modern networks are evolving to meet the demands of accelerated broadband access deployments, including fixed, fixed-wireless access, and 5G. This evolution requires more capacity and intelligence deeper into aggregation and metro networks. Additionally, the adoption of edge clouds and the proliferation of end devices have increased the need for agility, cloud-like functionality, and enhanced security.
Greg McCall, Chief Networks Officer at BT Group, stated, “With the new Nokia 7730 SXR routing portfolio powered by FPcx silicon and the SR Linux NOS, operators will continue to benefit from secure, assured, and sustainable IP routing for which Nokia is known.”
Thomas King, CTO of DE-CIX, emphasized, “We are excited that Nokia continues to invest and innovate in routing technologies that help operators like DE-CIX deliver not only high-performance IP services but also secure and assured IP connectivity services our customers demand.”
Ken Kutzler, Vice President of IP Routing Hardware at Nokia, concluded, “Nokia’s new family of routers enables service providers and network builders to get the benefits of service routing available today at the IP edge/core into the IP access and aggregation networks without performance compromise while ensuring the latest requirements are met.”
Nokia’s 7730 SXR platforms promise to transform IP access and aggregation networks by providing the performance, security, assurance, and sustainability necessary for the evolving network landscape. These platforms are poised to play a pivotal role in meeting the ever-growing demands of modern telecommunications networks.
