Rethinking Core Economics of Network Growth
June 18th, 2012 By: Michael Potts
With growing broadband traffic projections, service providers are forced to balance network capacity and operational costs constantly, as mounting power and space requirements place significant pressure on service providers. The Alcatel-Lucent 7950 Extensible Routing System (XRS) ensures efficient network scaling by delivering density for 10GE, 40 GE, and 100GE interfaces as well as clear path to 400GE and terabit Ethernet interfaces.
This white paper from Alcatel-Lucent quantifies the operational cost advantages of the Alcatel-Lucent 7950 XRS in relation to traditional core routing alternatives in the form of a financial study. First, it outlines the case study, with charts showing the core routing nodes and subscriber populations served. Next, it defines the study, hoping the compare the cost of deploying the 7950 XRS with alternative solutions to two other incumbent core router suppliers. Lastly, it presents the savings associated with utilizing the 7950 XRS and the advantages to employing it within your organization.
