The Alcatel-Lucent 7750 Service Router (SR), a superior multiservice edge router, is purpose built for service providers, cable MSO and enterprise customers looking to deliver a new wave of residential, business and mobile services on a single IP/MPLS network.
Optimized for the delivery of high performance data, voice and video services, the Alcatel-Lucent 7750 SR is available in three chassis sizes - 1 slot, 7 slots and 12 slots - all of which offer a wide range of interfaces with unmatched density and service performance.
Leveraging the strength of the Alcatel-Lucent Service Router Operating System (SR OS), the Alcatel-Lucent 7750 SR delivers the service flexibility to achieve the service continuity, service richness and service assurance critical to ensuring customer satisfaction and market leadership.
Increased revenues with innovative, differentiated services
Support for advanced networking services allows service providers to capitalize on information embedded in the network to provide subscriber-centric Internet and connectivity services. Subscriber, service, and application awareness can be used to provide differential QoS treatment of higher-value traffic streams and manage the online experience. Guaranteeing a superior QoE for certain applications and metering them separately for billing permits tiered pricing for different levels of service.
Reduced operational expense
By combining wireline and wireless services on a 7750 SR-based converged provider edge, network operations are simplified because all services run over a platform with consistent feature set, operational model, and management, while supporting the service scalability required to combine services. As legacy services are migrated to the new converged service network, the legacy networks that carried the service can be decommissioned, further simplifying overall network operations and expenditure. In addition, the 7750 SR has numerous features for automated provisioning of subscribers and services based on service templates and interacting with other operational systems for authentication, authorization, continually evolve in step with customer requirements providing an unprecedented level of investment protection.
From its introduction, the 7750 SR family has evolved with customer feature and scaling requirements.
The 7750 SR sophisticated and flexible hardware has a track record of allowing new features and enhancements to be introduced “in-place” in software, rather than through a rapid series of ever-changing hardware iterations.
The award-winning FP2 network processing silicon ensures 7750 SR platform capacity and service scale can continually evolve in step with customer requirements providing an unprecedented level of investment protection.
Pioneering advances in power efficiency are incorporated into each member of the Alcatel-Lucent 7750 SR family reducing the expense of both powering and cooling when comparing products with less advanced silicon technology. Combined with environmentally sensitive manufacturing processes, careful materials selection, and a view to sustainable product life cycle management, the 7750 SR family assists service providers in reducing their environmental impact.
Industry-leading 100 Gb/s FP2 silicon
At the heart of the Alcatel-Lucent 7750 SR is the Alcatel-Lucent award-winning FP2 network processing silicon. Clocking in at 100 Gb/s, the FP2 chipset enables line interfaces to scale to 100 Gb/s, while concurrently supporting processing-intensive edge routing and mobile gateway services without performance impact. Network processors are an essential element in the quest for no compromise, high-speed, intelligent services that can adapt to customer requirements.
Proven end-to-end Operating System
Alcatel-Lucent Service Router Operating System (SR OS) is a carrier-grade, highly fault-tolerant, and feature-rich operating system that operates across the entire Alcatel-Lucent Service Router portfolio. With a single operating system across all platforms, operators can be assured of consistent and reliable operations and management when deploying Ethernet (VLL, VPLS), IP/MPLS (IP VPN), legacy (ATM, TDM, POS), and/or mobile services and applications on an Alcatel-Lucent service router network.
Best-in-class High Availability
High availability is more than just redundant hardware. In addition to redundant common equipment and line card redundancy, SR OS supports numerous features that minimize service disruption like non-stop routing, stateful failover capabilities, in-service software upgrades (ISSU), and innovative multi-chassis features for service resiliency. Further, the 7750 SR supports service assurance and monitoring tools across IP, MPLS, and Ethernet domains. In short, with a comprehensive suite of high availability features, the 7750 SR is the industry’s most reliable platform for offering non-stop applications and services.
Advanced Hierarchical QoS
With today’s IP traffic streams including a range of services consisting of video applications, voice, best-effort Internet access, and mission-critical business services, QoS becomes a critical element for delivering both best-effort and SLA-based services on a common platform. The Alcatel-Lucent 7750 SR sets the standard with its advanced and highly flexible Hierarchical QoS implementation with hardware support for multi-tiered shaping and policing hierarchies. As it is designed as a service delivery platform, the 7750 SR provides the tools to define and deliver the most stringent SLAs for high-value, differentiated services.
Service Routing Specialization
Alcatel-Lucent recognizes that service providers need to be nimble and yet cost sensitive when introducing application-enabled services into the network. With service routing specialization, operators can add new services with higher-level processing requirements to the network wherever an Alcatel-Lucent 7750 SR is located, by simply adding an Integrated Services Adapter (ISA) or Integrated Services Module (ISM) to the node. Compared to using dedicated network elements to provide services, 7750 SR service adapters have tighter management integration, higher performance, higher scale, and consume less energy. They allow service providers to leverage the network design in deploying services where most cost effective, where most easily managed, and with appropriate scale. Applications supported include Application Assurance, which leverages deep packet inspection (DPI) technology to provide application-level traffic reporting and traffic management capabilities, advanced video services (Fast Channel Change/Retransmission or Ad Insertion), IPSec services, large scale Network Address Translation (NAT), and L2TP Network Server (LNS) services.
The 7750 SR family is managed by the Alcatel-Lucent 5620 Service Aware Manager (SAM) for assured, simplified and integrated operations across both network and service management domains. 5620 SAM is designed to manage services and provides service-level visibility into the network for small- and large-scale service deployments. The Alcatel-Lucent management offering includes additional tools like the 5650 Control Plane Assurance Manager (CPAM) and 5670 Reporting and Analysis Manager (RAM) that work in conjunction with 5620 SAM and streamline network operations and aid in the provisioning and management of all connectivity and advanced networking services.
