The Alcatel-Lucent 7950 Extensible Routing System (XRS) portfolio is a suite of powerful core routing platforms that deliver scale, efficiency and versatility without compromises. The 7950 XRS portfolio revolutionizes the economics of delivering the Internet by offering up to 5 times the density of existing alternatives while consuming only one-third the electricity. The 7950 XRS shatters current density norms with up to 80 100GE and/or 800 10GE ports in a single 19-inch rack and can double this capacity in a dual-chassis, back-to-back system configuration. The 7950 XRS is designed to scale to 40 Tb/s in a single chassis with future expansion to 240 Tb/s system forwarding capacity in a multichassis configuration.
The port density, efficiency and forward-looking design of the 7950 XRS enable service providers to expand core network capacity for video, cloud-based applications and immersive multimedia delivered across an array of devices. At the same time, the cost of precious assets like space and power is reduced.
On only one platform, service providers can meet all IP core routing, MPLS switching, data center interconnection and VLL/VPN infrastructure service needs in metro cores and IP backbones for years to come – with maximum efficiency and low TCO.
