Alcatel 7450 Technical Information:
The Alcatel 7450 Ethernet Service Switch (ESS) family of Carrier Ethernet switch routers is designed to deliver high-performance MPLS-enabled carrier Ethernet services. At the same time, it provides the ideal platform for metro Ethernet aggregation for fixed and mobile networks.
Leveraging Alcatel 400 Gb/s FP3 silicon technology, the 7450 ESS integrates the scalability, resiliency and predictability of MPLS with the bandwidth economics of Ethernet to deliver enhanced business services and enable the metro aggregation of mobile, business and residential services. Available in four chassis variants, the 7450 ESS supports comprehensive Ethernet, IP (IPv4/IPv6), MPLS and Provider Backbone Bridging (PBB) networking with advanced resiliency and synchronization capabilities.
Furthermore, the 7450 ESS is Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) Carrier Ethernet (CE) 2.0 compliant, enabling the delivery of CE 2.0 certified services across all four MEF service types – E-LAN, E-Line, E-Tree and E-Access.
As a member of the Service Router product portfolio, the 7450 ESS also utilizes the Alcatel-Lucent Service Router Operating System (SR OS). It is managed by the Alcatel-Lucent 5620 Service Aware Manager (SAM) for seamless integration into other IP/MPLS solutions by Alcatel-Lucent.
