Alcatel 7670 RSP

Routing Switch Platform | Release 6.2

A multiservice IP routing and switching platform supporting new and established services

The Alcatel 7670 Routing Switch Platform (RSP) is a feature-rich,highly scalable, multiservice platform optimized to deliver IP/MPLS andATM-basedservices reliably and concurrently. The platform is ideal for service providers seeking to preserve and expand current services while transitioning towards an IP/MPLS infrastructure.

With separate control planes for IP/MPLS and ATM, the Alcatel 7670 RSP has been uniquely designed to support a wide range of services including IP-VPNs,Layer 2 VPNs, Ethernet, ATM, and frame relay. The Alcatel 7670 RSP also offers comprehensive network and service interworking capabilities leveraging standardsbased approaches over both MPLS and ATM. Furthermore, the Alcatel 7670 RSP supportshigh-density,channelized, multiservice cards that offer outstanding flexibility with the ability to support multiple concurrent services at different speeds on a single card.

Designed to accommodate traffic growth, the Alcatel 7670 RSP scales rapidly and without service interruption from 50 Gb/s to 450 Gb/s (full duplex, redundant). The breadth of supported configurations ensures optimal node deployments at multiple sites of varying size.

As a highly reliable, carrier-gradeplatform, the Alcatel 7670 RSP provides full common equipment redundancy. Facility protection capabilities include automatic protection switching (APS) for SONET/ SDH interfaces and link aggregation group (LAG) for Ethernet interfaces. With the addition of MPLS fast reroute (FRR),non-stoprouting,non-stopsignaling andnon-stopforwarding, the result is a highavailability architecture at all levels providing the foundation for trueend-to-end,non-stopLayer 2 and Layer 3 services.

The industry-leadingAlcatel 5620 Network Manager (NM) provides a single management platform to seamlessly manage both legacy and IP/MPLS services. Only Alcatel can provide a single tool for automatedend-to-endprovisioning of both label switched paths (LSPs) and VCs across multiple platforms, monitoring and enforcement of service level agreements (SLAs), and open interfaces that enable simple integration into any OSS environment.

The Alcatel 7670 RSP is deployed in over 110 of the world’s largest fixed and mobile service provider networks worldwide. Its unique platform enables the deployment of flexible, scalable, highly reliable and manageable networks capable of supporting both today’s requirements and tomorrow’s evolution.
