The Alcatel-Lucent 7710 Service Router (SR) is a feature rich multiservice edge router available in modular, compact form factors. It is ideally suited for locations where lower throughput requirements are required to aggregate lower-speed subscribers over a wide variety of interfaces.
Designed for smaller points of presence (PoPs), distributed hub sites and enterprise customer offices, the 7710 SR enables service providers to extend IP transformation to the furthest edge of their networks. The 7710 SR delivers unmatched service richness, service assurance and service velocity, giving service providers, cable MSOs and enterprise customers a competitive edge by allowing them to optimize their infrastructure buildouts with a fully featured router in a smaller footprint.
Optimized for the delivery of high-performance data, voice and video services, the 7710 SR is available in two chassis sizes to support up to 4 and up to 12 interface positions as well as a wide variety interface types and speeds.
As a member of the industry leading Alcatel-Lucent SR portfolio, the 7710 SR inherits the performance and reliability capabilities of Alcatel-Lucent's proven feature set and meets service provider requirements for IP/MPLS platforms that are future proof for innovative, profitable service delivery. Leveraging the strength of the Alcatel-Lucent Service Router Operating System (SR OS), the 7710 SR delivers unmatched service assurance, service richness and service velocity.
- Allows extension of service footprints closer to the end customer
- Full system redundancy and lower aggregation speeds in metro area networks and smaller points of presence ( POPs), distributed hub sites and enterprise customer offices
- Capitalizes on the all the hardware and software strengths of the 7750 SR product family
- Supports a broad range of interface types using 7710 SR Compact Media Adapter's (CMA's) or Service Router Media Dependent Adapters (MDAs)
- Supports the same applicable optical/electrical SFPs available on the 7750 SR product family
- Common operating system across all service routers for service and operational continuity minimizes approval for use certification testing, eliminates all issues around release and feature backward compatibility and allows for rapid fault isolation
- Service and network level OAM tools that minimizes troubleshooting time
- Advanced Services: Virtual Private LAN Service (VPLS), Virtual Private Wire Services (VPWSs), Virtual Private Routed Networks (VPRNs) based on RFC 4364 and IPv6 based services
- Service Tunneling: enables layer 2 and layer 3 services on a single platform with the flexibility of any service over any port over a wide range of interfaces including channelized DS1/E1, DS3/E3, Ethernet, SONET/SDH PoS and ATM interfaces.
- Multi-service edge: FR/ATM/Ethernet pseudowire services (VPWS), Ethernet/FR/ATM service interworking, Ethernet, FR and ATM access to VPLS, IP-VPN and Internet services with service aware quality of service (QoS) to maintain stringent service level agreements (SLAs) and ensure a seamless migration to emerging services.
- Quality of Service: service-based quality of service (QoS) allows for service-based queuing, which enables shaping, policing and marking of different traffic flows on a per service basis
- Hierarchical Quality of Service (H-QoS): Hierarchical QoS uses an advanced scheduling mechanism, with multiple levels and instances of queuing, shaping, policing and marking, to prioritize different services over the same connection and combine all services into overall SLA
- High Availability: non-stop services and non-stop routing that provide unparalleled availability and reliability. Non-stop services ensure that VPLS-based services and VPRNs are not affected when there is a CFM switchover on the 7710 SR. With non-stop routing, LDP adjacencies, sessions and the database remain intact if there is a switchover.
- OAM: Unmatched service-aware operations, administration and maintenance (OAM) toolkit and mirroring - service assurance capabilities needed to reduce mean-time-to-repair (MTTR) and ensure a predictable end-user experience
- Enhanced troubleshooting tools: in-service software upgrade (ISSU) minimizes downtime between minor release upgrades. Service Assurance Agent (SAA), which consists of OAM and debugging tools that allow network operators to collect statistics such as loss, jitter, latency, response time and packet loss. Multicast troubleshooting tools includes a full set of troubleshooting tools for multicast that allow network operators to assess the distribution of IP multicast traffic, to trace multicast paths in the network and to calculate performance metrics of the network.
- Security: service-based filtering using access control list (ACL) support on a per service or per interface basis
- Accounting and Billing: service-based accounting and billing collects statistics on a per service basis, not just a per port basis
- Network Management: The 7710 SR is fully supported by the Alcatel-Lucent 5620 Service Access Manager which simplifies the provisioning, management and troubleshooting of IP/MPLS networks
