Smart Services Routers (SSRs) support delivery of services across fixed and mobile networks, enabling faster introduction of new services to consumers. To that end, Ericsson has introduced its new SSR 8000 family, a key component of Ericsson’s 4th generation of IP networking launched earlier this year. As a consolidated platform for both fixed and mobile network applications, the SSR enables complete network convergence so subscribers can access services from any device or location.
The SSR 8000 product portfolio is developed in Ericsson Silicon Valley and runs the Ericsson IP Operating System, a modular OS. The SSR 8020 is a 16 Tbps system with 400G full-duplex slots combined with leading density (e.g. up to 800x1G or 200x10G ports).
The Ericsson SSR 8000 family includes:
- Ericsson SSR 8020, 20 slots
- Ericsson SSR 8010, 10 slots
- Ericsson SSR 8006, 6 slots
The Ericsson SSR 8020 will ship at the end of 2011. Other Smart Services Routers will be available next year.
