BT is deploying Nokia's 7750 Service Router (SR)-s platform to dramatically boost backbone network capacity in preparation for the continued rise in residential and mobile traffic driven by the traffic demands of FTTP and 5G.
Traffic across BT's core network is growing upwards of 40 percent year on year, driven by video and gaming over high speed fixed and mobile broadband. To stay ahead of this rising demand, and meet the increasing demand for high-performance, high-capacity routing across its converged networks, BT has chosen Nokia's 7750 SR-s platform.
Through this exclusive agreement, BT will be among the first operators in the world to introduce the Nokia 7750 SR-s in the backbone network, augmenting the existing Nokia 7750 SR and 7950 Extensible Routing System (XRS) based network, managed by the Network Services Platform (NSP).
Powered by the world's first multi-terabit network processor silicon (FP4), the Nokia 7750 SR-s delivers the highest 100GE density available on the market today among high-performance IP routers. FP4 silicon innovation also drives the industry's first platform capable of delivering terabit IP flows across the expanding backbone and peering points.
