Ericsson Debuts 240 Gbps Broadband Network Gateway Router

Ericsson introduced a 240 Gbps 1RU router which supports distributed Broadband Network Gateway (BNG), distributed cloud gateway, distributed provider edge and hyper-scale Open Flow switch with integrated inline high touch applications.

The Ericsson Router 8801 uses an in-house smart network processor SNP 4000 for enabling application-aware and subscriber-aware personalized services.

"Exponential traffic and the growth of over-the-top applications are forcing service providers to scale their network. Router 8801 is cost optimized for disaggregated deployment scenarios which makes it attractive for next generation distributed cloud architecture. With this deployment, network operators will get a solution to efficiently meet rapidly increasing demand for advanced services by supporting today's network requirements and also future growth in terms of speed, devices and applications," stated Arne Sjule, Head of Product Area IP routing, Ericsson.
