Alcatel-Lucent has introduced a 100 Gigabit Ethernet service routing interface for the edge. Through the introduction of a 100 Gig service interface on its 7750 Service Router (SR) and 7450 Ethernet Service Switch (ESS), the Alcatel-Lucent service router portfolio will deliver 100 Gig performance while continuing to support the full scope of broadband services essential for operators carrying premium managed services such as business VPNs and IPTV, alongside “over-the-top” traffic such as Web-based video.

At the heart of the 100 Gig Ethernet capability is Alcatel-Lucent’s FP2 silicon. Shipping since July 2008, the FP2 silicon now enables the 7750 SR and 7450 ESS to support 100 Gig. This means that operators who have deployed Alcatel-Lucent service routers since 2004 can simply add new line cards and immediately multiply capacity up to 100 Gigabits per slot without service interruption.
