Telefónica to Deploy Alcatel-Lucent's 7950 Core Router

Telefónica will deploy the new Alcatel-Lucent 7950 Extensible Routing System (XRS) in Argentina and the Czech Republic.

Telefónica is one the first service providers worldwide to deploy Alcatel-Lucent's new core router.  Financial terms were not disclosed.

The new 7950 XRS family - based on the company's 400G FP3 chipset – supports five times the density of today’s core routers and slashes power consumption by 66 percent compared to typical core routers. Telefónica also will benefit from a common operating system (SR OS) across the Alcatel-Lucent router portfolio.  The solution  features a common network management system – the 5620 Service Aware Manager (SAM) – offering seamless support across the 7950 XRS family and the Service Router portfolio.

Enrique Blanco, Telefónica’s Global Chief Technology Officer said: “This collaboration with Alcatel-Lucent is part of a far-reaching network modernization effort which will give us one of the most powerful and efficient IP networks. In order for us to dramatically increase our network capacity and intelligence to address our customers’ fast evolving demands we needed the support of a new, truly disruptive solution. The Alcatel-Lucent XRS met this requirement.”

Federico Guillén, President Alcatel-Lucent Spain and Global Account Manager for Telefónica said: “We are gratified that Telefónica has turned to Alcatel-Lucent to play such an important role in the transformation of their IP networks around the world. With the introduction of the 7950 XRS core router, our IP portfolio offers truly best-in-class capabilities across the board, and we look forward to the opportunity to take Telefonica’s IP network to the next level.”
