Alcatel-Lucent Takes Aim at Terabit Routin

When it comes to getting more routing power out of a routing platform, the key according to networking vendor Alcatel-Lucent (NYSE: ALU) is better silicon. Alcatel-Lucent is now out with a pair of networking platforms powered by a 100-gigabit-per-second silicon chipset called the FP2.

On a conference call with press and analysts, Basil Alwan, president of Alcatel-Lucent's IP business, explained that the FP2 allows users to have both services and speed on IP infrastructure. The FP2-powered Alcatel-Lucent 7750 Service Router (SR) and 7450 Ethernet Service Switch (ESS) can scale all the way up to a terabit of performance.

"Silicon is the foundation of these platforms," Alwan said. "In the past many people were speculating that this kind of silicon design would only be done at silicon companies," he said. "However, high performance routing is not only very complex, but for a chip company it's relatively low volume. So we find that the specialized designs required for high-performance networking chips are often being done by networking vendors."
