Nokia presents internet routing platforms for telecom networks

Nokia 7750 SR-s series routers
Telecom equipment maker Nokia has introduced internet routing platforms featuring Nokia FP4 chipset for modern networks.

Nokia 7750 Service Router (SR)-s series provides the industry’s highest-density routing platform that can support a 144 Tb/s configuration in a single shelf.

The Nokia 7950 Extensible Routing System (XRS)-XC, a petabit-class router, is the world’s highest-capacity router to date. It scales to 576 Tb/s in a single system through chassis extension, without requiring separate switching shelves.

“Innovations like Nokia’s new FP4 silicon and routing platforms allow us to maintain our commitment to our customers by balancing capacity, intelligence, visibility and security,” said Neil McRae, BT Managing Director and Chief Architect.

The Finland-based Nokia said its platforms are the industry’s first capable of delivering terabit IP flows, a 10x improvement over the existing 100 Gb/s links used to construct the internet backbone.

“This ensures modern networking systems of webscale companies and service providers can meet data demand, adapt to change, and scale cost-effectively and securely for the cloud, 5G and IoT,” said Basil Alwan, president of the ION Business Group at Nokia.

Nokia said FP4 silicon networking chipset features the world’s first 2.4 Tb/s network processor – up to 6x more powerful than processors currently available – opening the door to clear-channel terabit speeds and petabit-class routers.


# Nokia FP4 is the industry’s first 2.4 Tb/s network processor silicon

# Industry-first support for terabit IP flows

# Industry’s first petabit-class router with Nokia XRS-XC delivering 576 Tb/sof capacity

# Nokia 7750 SR-s platforms provide highest density. The single-shelf Nokia 7750 SR-14s supports a 144 Tb/s configuration, and can scale up to288 Tb/s in capacity

# Up to 6x increase in capacity of existing platforms provides investment protection for broadly deployed systems

Nokia Bell Labs forecasts IP traffic will more than double in the next 5 years, reaching 330 exabytes a month by 2022 while growing at 25 percent compound annual growth rates. Peak data rates will grow even faster, at nearly 40 percent annually.

“Operators will want to examine the new Nokia FP4 silicon and the systems that use it – as it delivers against this triplet of critical network capabilities – to support their offered services in this cloud age with IoT, 5G, and machine communications,” said Michael Howard, senior research director, Carrier Networks, IHS Markit.
