Alcatel-Lucent Enhances 7705 Services Aggregation Router

Alcatel-Lucent announced several improvements to its 7705 Services Aggregation Router (SAR) family aimed at the mobile backhaul market. The new power-efficient, small footprint, high-performance 7705 SAR-M models provide operators with additional network flexibility in addressing their requirements for mobile backhaul, business services, and strategic industries such as Smart Grids.

Alcatel-Lucent said its new 7705 SAR-M models support a variety of cell site access options including nxDS1/E1, Gigabit Ethernet, microwave, OADM, GPON and xDSL. The 7705 SAR-M xDSL module, with support for up to 8-pair bonding over VDSL2, boosts data speeds over copper access networks and provides a clear evolution path to even higher data throughputs with VDSL2 Vectoring technology.

The 7705 SAR product family, which has been deployed by more than 80 operators so far, supports 2G, 3G, and 4G/LTE.

Alcatel-Lucent also noted that it currently holds the position of leading vendor in the Ethernet cell site gateway and Ethernet mobile backhaul router markets for the first six months of 2011, according to Infonetics.
