DRIVING SCALE AND OPERATIONAL EFFICIENCY IN THE IP CORE
The Alcatel-Lucent 7950 XRS core router provides an integrated P-Router and Label Switched Router solution with high port and slot density per chassis to deliver increased scale and higher efficiency to meet the requirements of 100G configurations.
ACG Research analyzed the TCO of the 7950 XRS core router and other leading core switch/router solutions when deployed on a simulated large core network subject to high traffic growth rates. It found that the OpEx of the 7950 XRS is 43% to 56% lower than the competitions’ core router solutions. Capital expense also is lower by 22% to 26%.For more information about ACG Research's Business Case Analysis service, click here or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
