Alcatel-Lucent Debuts 7750 SR-e Service Routers

Alcatel-Lucent introduced a new series of IP routers designed for smaller locations in large-scale IP networks, or to serve as a full-service router for smaller networks.

The new 7750 SR-e service router, which is based on the company's 7750 Service Router (SR) family, FP3 silicon and Service Router Operating System (SR OS) software , delivers full IP edge routing capability in a mid-size form factor. The new 7750 SR-e platform is also cloud-ready and a key element in Alcatel-Lucent’s portfolio supporting the evolution of networking to NFV and SDN.

Some highlights:

  • Three form factors are being introduced: SR-1e (400 Gbps), SR-2e (800 Gbps) and SR-3e (1.2 Tbps). Supports GE, 10GE and 100GE interfaces. 
  • The routers sit between the 7750 SR and 7750 SR-a. The SR-e series fills the demand for a lower end 100G-capable box but offers more capability than the SR-a variant.
  • The 7750 SR-e is cloud-ready and a key element supporting the evolution of networking to NFV and SDN
  • Has a unique chassis air flow design for efficient cooling and reduced fan noise while paving the way for future capacity growth. Higher capacity systems run hotter, so a future-proof thermal design is critical for continued investment protection. With these advances, the SR-e platforms have a fully NEBS-compliant design purpose-built for the most stringent central office and co-location facilities.
  • Enables a converged IP-optical network with GMPLS UNI

“We continue to evolve our IP hardware and NFV portfolio in anticipation of our customers’ requirements. Our ‘Network Function Optimization’ approach recognizes that virtualized and integrated routing solutions will be required for different applications, and that choice will be dictated by the economics and architectural preference of each network operator. The success of our 7750 SR-a series affirms that we are on the right track and that customers will require even higher-performance, high-function, QoS-intensive IP services on specialized hardware routing platforms. With our cloud-ready 7750 SR-e series, customers have even more flexibility to strike the right balance for their network,” stated Basil Alwan, president of Alcatel-Lucent’s IP Routing and Transport business.
