Alcatel-Lucent's technology solution for Telefonica
For the deployment Alcatel-Lucent is supplying Telefonica with its new 7950 XRS family - based on the 400G FP3 chipset – which brings a huge boost in capacity, efficiency and flexibility to the heart of IP networks, while slashing power consumption and total cost of ownership. Representing a new generation of IP core routers, the 7950 XRS is based on a compact, highly efficient system design that is built with the future in mind. The 7950 XRS family supports five times the density of today's core routers and, using the latest techniques in silicon and system design, slashes power consumption by 66 percent compared to typical core routers.
Telefonica also will benefit from a common operating system (SR OS) across the Alcatel-Lucent router portfolio - a highly available, feature-rich and field-proven software infrastructure that is trusted by more than 450 service providers worldwide. The solution also features a common network management system – the 5620 Service Aware Manager (SAM) – offering seamless support across the 7950 XRS family and the Service Router portfolio.About Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) The long-trusted partner of service providers, enterprises and governments around the world, Alcatel-Lucent is a leading innovator in the field of networking and communications technology, products and services.
