With the presence of FP5 technology from Nokia, users will get higher performance and lower power consumption.
Nokia has just announced the launch of their latest network technology, the FP5. This technology is the fifth generation of high-performance silicon IP routing technology.
This technology builds on four generations of industry-leading network processors, plus support for high-density 800GE routing interfaces. This new technology also has a 75% reduction in power consumption, comes with a new embedded line rate, and flow-based encryption capabilities.
By introducing the fifth-generation Nokia FP5 network processing silicon to the industry, Nokia is presenting a suite of IP routing solutions that can help service providers transform their IP networks to meet new and evolving requirements.
There is also a layer of network protection by introducing ‘ANYsec’ in this FP5 technology, a new line rate with flow-based encryption capabilities integrated directly into the chipset.
ANYsec supports the secure delivery of IP services, including MPLS and segment routing, on-demand and at scale without impacting performance or power efficiency. Now service providers can ensure the integrity and confidentiality of all data flowing through their network.
This technology provides 1.6 Tb/s clear channel routing interfaces for applications including mobile transport, IP core, peering, BNG, and provider edge. The new FP5-based line card will support 14.4 Tb/s (19.2 Tb/s with Nokia’s intelligent aggregation capability).
The new series of 7750 Service Router-1 platforms will enable the continued use of the FP5 for use in smaller network locations.
The Nokia FP5 network processor can reduce power consumption per bit by 75%. This is because the FP5 is compatible with FP4 and fully integrated into the latest version of Nokia’s Service Router Operating System (SR OS), all existing features are supported from the start with the new hardware.
Through this strategy of integrated hardware and software evolution, Nokia provides investment protection to its customers. The FP5 enables the speed needed to expand networks as standards and applications change as a fully programmable network processor.
Its deterministic performance, combined with a wealth of telemetry information, can ensure network operators can drive IP networks that can be maintained and improved both now and in the future.
