ALU's DPI Device to Get a 400GE Interface

Alcatel-Lucent's DPI product, the 7750 Service Router [See "Alcatel Lucent 7750 DPI Technology" - here], which was among the first to offer a 100 GE interface (here), will get a 400 GE interface later this year. 

ALU announced it is launching a ".. 1-port 400G IP line card for IP networks that will allow data transmission between existing Alcatel-Lucent IP Routers at speeds of 400 gigabits-per-second (400G) line rate over hundreds of kilometers.

.. The new Alcatel-Lucent 1-port 400G IP line card – which is powered by FP3 400G routing processor developed by Alcatel-Lucent – provides the communications industry’s first ‘clear channel 400G’ capability. This avoids the need to aggregate IP traffic over multiple 100G links, a more efficient method of transmitting ‘big data’ volumes from operators’ data centers, and between their metro aggregation networks and core networks, and at four times the speeds made possible by IP connectivity today ..  allowing operators to use it with existing 7750 Service Router (SR) and 7950 Extensible Routing System (XRS) gear.

Integrated tuneable DWDM (dense wavelength division multiplexing) optics allow direct interconnection between routers at 400G line rates on a single fibre over distances of hundreds of kilometers, or alternatively as alien wavelengths over a DWDM transport network.

The 1-port 400G IP line card will be available for use in Alcatel-Lucent’s XRS IP Core Routers and on its 7750 SRs in the second-half of 2015."
