Alcatel-Lucent broadens IP Router family with cloud-ready platforms to increase capacity and performance, tailored for use closer to the customer
7750 SR-e series provides full IP edge routing in small to mid-scale applications while building on successful 7750 Service Router family in use with more than 700 service providers worldwide
Paris, France, September 22, 2015
- The series includes fully-featured IP edge routers offering the same rich suite of applications for which the Service Router is known, but in a smaller form-factor. Variants include SR-1e (400Gb/s), SR-2e (800 Gb/s) and SR-3e (1.2 Tb/s). Supports GE, 10GE and 100GE interfaces.
- The routers sit between the 7750 SR and 7750 SR-a. The SR-e series fills the demand for a lower end 100G-capable box but offers more capability than the SR-a variant.
- The 7750 SR-e is cloud-ready and a key element supporting the evolution of networking to NFV and SDN
- Has a unique chassis air flow design for efficient cooling and reduced fan noise while paving the way for future capacity growth. Higher capacity systems run hotter, so a future-proof thermal design is critical for continued investment protection. With these advances, the SR-e platforms have a fully NEBS-compliant design purpose-built for the most stringent central office and co-location facilities.
- Enables a converged IP-optical network with GMPLS UNI
- Like the rest of the Alcatel-Lucent Service Router portfolio, the 7750 SR-e leverages FP3 silicon, the highly reliable SR OS operating system, common network and service management with 5620 SAM for the Service Router and 1830 Photonic Service Switch (PSS), and multi-layer SDN control with the Network Services Platform.
