Nokia, Elisa push network boundaries with ‘world first’ 1 Terabit deployment

By

Nokia and long-standing partner Elisa have completed a live commercial trial of a claimed world’s first 1 Terabit clear-channel interface deployment to efficiently scale Elisa’s network to support new applications and access technologies.

Nokia says it has achieved a major network capacity milestone with Elisa while preparing the operator’s network for the future.

According to Nokia the exponential demand for connectivity and bandwidth driven by cloud computing, video streaming, AI, IoT and 5G, coupled with changing internet traffic patterns among consumers, home workers and businesses is pushing capacity limits of communication service provider (CSP) networks.

And Nokia says that as CSPs look to combine gigabit capable fixed and wireless access technologies, the IP networks that carry this broadband traffic must scale in lockstep.

“Most networks are still operating a multitude of 100GE ports, with 400GE on the horizon. Nokia’s trial with Elisa is proving out terabit interfaces today,” said Nokia.

Elisa upgraded some of its Nokia 7950 Extensible Routing System (XRS) nodes with 1T interfaces powered by Nokia’s FP4 chipset, the “industry’s first” terabit capable routing silicon.

The new FP4 terabit linecard supports two 1T ports and demonstrated deployment readiness by carrying live traffic on Elisa’s network.

Besides a 10x boost in capacity, terabit links simplify operational complexity and overheads by avoiding the need to distribute terabit flows on high capacity routes over multiple lower rate interfaces in link aggregation groups.

Kalle Lehtinen, CTO, at Elisa, said: “Elisa continues its string of world firsts with this record-breaking IP routing capability achieved with Nokia, enabling us to leapfrog an 800G progression that other service providers are only strategizing about.

“This strengthens our position as a global 5G leader and gigabit broadband service provider, allowing us to stay ahead of the curve and maintain our commitment to our customers."

“Nokia is honored to have a longstanding partnership with Elisa. Delivering FP4-based 1T ports in the 7950 XRS is a testament to Nokia’s innovation and drive to push the technology envelope, maximizing investments for customers like Elisa,” said Ken Kutzler, Vice President of IP Routing Hardware at Nokia.
