Japanese giant NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com) will introduce Alcatel-Lucent’s 7750 Service Router (7750 SR) multiservice edge router into its network to help facilitate business services in Japan and worldwide. The carrier says its business services used to be supported by independent networks, but the move to a single, converged IP infrastructure “will simplify and streamline network management, cut the cost of network operations and help lower NTT Com’s operational expenditure through a measurable decrease in energy consumption.” The 7750SR supports platform capacities ranging from 40 Gb/s to 2 Tb/s, with a processing structure adapted to the carrier’s service, QoS provision, and a range of protocols and interfaces like Ethernet and multiservice.
