7750 Service Router - Mobile Gateway

The 7750 Service Router (SR) as a mobile gateway is a high-performance, service-aware platform optimized to deliver the next generation of LTE-driven services with exceptional performance and scale.

As a mobile gateway, the 7750 SR provides deployment flexibility and service agility with concurrent support for Serving GW (SGW), PDN GW (PGW) and Gateway GPRS Support Node (GGSN) functions.  Operators can achieve additional network simplification and operational efficiency by consolidating many essential IP and mobile networking functions onto the same platform.

Based on Alcatel-Lucent’s purpose-built FP network processing silicon, the 7750 SR’s service edge architecture is uniquely suited for the rigorous demands of LTE by providing independent and concurrent packet processing in three dimensions: control, data and advanced data processing planes. The 7750 SR runs the feature-rich Service Router Operating System (SR OS) and has end-to-end service aware management with the 5620 SAM.

Benefits & Features

Deliver LTE-optimized mobile broadband services with scale and performance

Purpose-built, in-house designed FP silicon providing advanced high-touch treatment on each packet flow (classification, filtering, advanced QoS, charging, accounting, and so onetc)

Independent and concurrent packet processing in three dimensions: control plane (instructions), data plane (packet processing), and advanced data plane (Deep Packet Inspection)

Advanced data plane processing – called Application Assurance (AA) – provides application- and subscriber-level policy and enforcement capabilities, leveraging DPI technology

Simplify the network, reduce costs

Single platform providing concurrent support for 2G/3G/LTE  gateway functions: SGW, PGW, GGSN, Policy and Charging Enforcement Function (PCEF) and the Application Detection Controller (ADC)

Industry leading IP Service Router capabilities and support for  fixed-mobile convergence with the Broadband Network Gateway (BNG) on the same platform

Simplify the network by collapsing essential mobile IP functions such as the WLAN GW and IPSec GW

Flexibly grow and evolve the mobile network

SR OS and purpose-built FP silicon technology proven to scale 4G/LTE services with no performance deterioration across massive number of IP service packet flows

Evolve to virtualized, cloud-based approach
