Ericsson has rolled out the Router 6000 series in a bid to meet the need for high-performance backhaul and precise synchronization required today and with evolution to LTE Advanced, 5G and M2M.
The Router 6000 series addresses the end-to-end network security concerns and demand for higher operational efficiency. The advanced radio integrated transport along with Service Provider SDN functionality and Ericsson Network Manager enables application aware traffic engineering with plug-and-play installation.
The new router series is a key element in Ericsson’s next-generation portfolio, a comprehensive suite of platforms running one network operating system (IPOS), spanning from cell-site routers to edge, mobile core and data centers. When deployed together with the new Ericsson Virtual Router, the enhanced portfolio enables flexible introduction of distributed cloud applications. Service providers can now optimize transport and compute resources for superior end user experience.
The Ericsson Router 6000 series responds directly to operators’ current challenge, to support the requirements of a Networked Society, with its dramatic increases in the numbers of connected devices of all types, and the video explosion driving the demand for traffic scale and higher quality of experience.
The gadget is also integrated to the company’s radio system that supports a multi-standard, multi-band, multi-layer architecture. This combination provides an ideal platform for operators to support their business today and on the road to 2020.
The Ericsson Router 6000 series consists of the Router 6672 for access, the Router 6675 for pre-aggregation and the Router 6274 for metro aggregation. Router 6000 series addresses the exponentially growing need for more capacity and higher density of 10GE/100GE interfaces in a compact form factor. The Ericsson Router 6000 series introduces the industry’s first access router with 100GE interfaces in a single Rack Unit (RU).
Cutting edge technology like Segment Routing in the Ericsson Router 6000 series provides an evolutionary migration from IP/MPLS to SDN, offering user-defined policy routing, faster roll out of revenue generating services and optimal usage of network resources.
