The need for speed in today’s networks is undeniable. The power of 100G service routing lies in delivering the services your customers are seeking at the highest speed possible.
Services drive all network revenues—raising the burning question for providers everywhere, “How can we deliver more services more efficiently?” Residential, business and mobile customer demands are expanding, as the expectations of cloud-based access to content and applications climb. The speed and efficiency of Alcatel-Lucent 100GE allows you to scale your network and leverage the full capabilities of your IP infrastructure in delivering innovative service offerings. Our 100G service routing technology delivers optimal performance in a compact footprint with industry-leading power efficiency—so you can trust your network to deliver the speed and performance you need while you focus on the creative new services that will grow your business.
Our versatile approach to 100G service routing is deployable in the metro, at the service edge, or in the core of your network.
The full promise of 100GE can only be realized if it can be put to work throughout your network. In some networks, higher-speed core router or datacenter interconnection is the critical requirement. In many other instances, 100G links provide headroom for handling high traffic volumes within a metro, or increase efficiency at the service edge of your IP network. In each case, Alcatel-Lucent 100GE rises to the challenge. Having delivered the industry’s first 100G service routing interfaces, we can help you benefit from 100GE speed and efficiency wherever your network requires it.
Minimize operational complexity, risk and costs by upgrading seamlessly to 100GE on service routers you’ve already deployed.
Alcatel-Lucent 100GE interfaces propel your IP service delivery infrastructure into the future. Deliver profitable business, residential or mobile services—with the assurance that your network will stay ahead of customer bandwidth needs. At the heart of our technology is groundbreaking silicon innovation that ensures your services can scale while delivering performance that exceeds your customers’ highest expectations.

The latest breakthrough silicon innovation from Alcatel-Lucent paves the way for scaling 100G networks. By quadrupling the speed of the most advanced network processors available today, it sets the stage for scaling the next generation of IP-based collaborative multimedia applications, entertainment and communications—while cutting power consumption by up to 50 percent.
Service provider deployments and field trials of Alcatel-Lucent 100GE service routing technology are well underway—with the benefits being touted by leading service providers around the world.
Service providers throughout the world are deploying Alcatel-Lucent 100GE service routing technology today. Implementations range from 100GE applications for IP peering and datacenter interconnection to 100GE in the metro and 100GE links in a converged IP service edge. Innovative service providers including T-Systems, Verizon, China Telecom, P&T Luxembourg and many others have already embraced 100G service routing.
Their deployment scenarios showcase the potential of 100GE across the metro, service edge and core—from scaling wireless backhaul and business service offerings in the metro, to expanding IP peering and datacenter interconnection capacity as cloud-based services emerge. In some cases, 100G technology from Alcatel-Lucent spans the IP and optical domains, integrating 100GE IP service routing with 100G coherent optics for long-haul transmission. In other groundbreaking networks, 100GE infrastructure serves as the catalyst for expanded collaboration between scientists in the midst of breakthrough research and visualization in areas of astronomy and climate change.
In an independent test, Isocore showed how 100GE on the Alcatel-Lucent 7750 SR met—and exceeded—real-world service delivery requirements.
Isocore conducted an independent wire-speed 100GE test of the Alcatel-Lucent 7750 Service Router using Ixia's K2 100GE test system. The objective was to determine whether an IP service router could demonstrate quality of service for mixed IP services at a 100G line-rate. Read the report to see how Alcatel-Lucent’s service router met and exceeded the real-world service delivery requirements at 100 gigabit speeds, bringing 100GE to the metro, edge and core of service provider networks.
“The FP3 will allow Alcatel-Lucent to reduce the cost, space, and power associated with 10GE, 40GE, and 100GE networks and will accelerate the scalable deployment of 100GE links. Perhaps more importantly, the FP3 supports platform evolution and customer investment protection as 100G networks evolve to 400G.”
David Krozier, Principal Analyst, Network Infrastructure Telecoms, Alcatel-Lucent: IP Infrastructure from Edge to Core,
“The FP3-based chipset will form the basis for higher-density 10 and 100G interfaces, and it is ideally timed to eliminate scale issues at the service edge, as service providers grow beyond the capabilities of currently available solutions.”

“Alcatel-Lucent is the only vendor today that can support 100G across both its IP/MPLS and optical networking products. The key here is the integrated management capabilities that work across both its optical and IP/MPLS platforms. Alcatel-Lucent IP/MPLS routers also have 100GE line cards that are based on unique, homegrown 100G silicon – which improves service flexibility and scale across the mix of business, residential, mobile, and cloud-based service delivery models.”
