Alcatel-Lucent Supplies IP Routing for Telefónica’s Fusión Red

Alcatel-Lucent is supplying its IP Routing portfolio for Telefónica Fusión Red project, which aims to collapse the traditional eight network layer architecture into only four. Residential and business services will converge on a single network and the IP service edge will move closer to customers, enabling Telefónica to use network capacity more efficiently and optimize data and video delivery, lowering latency to boost performance and reduce costs, while setting the stage for advanced services in

Under a three-year project, Alcatel-Lucent will replace older routers within the network, using its IP routing portfolio to perform core routing and layer two and three edge routing functions and act as a broadband network gateway for the provision of residential services. Alcatel-Lucent will deploy the 7950 Extensible Routing System, the 7450 Ethernet Service Switch (7450 ESS-MM), and the 7750 Service Router (7750 SR-12). End-to-end management will be provided by the Alcatel-Lucent 5620 Service Aware Manager. Alcatel-Lucent will employ its services expertise to manage the project, including installation and commissioning, systems integration, integration of nodes with the network and migration of current services to the new network architecture.
