Nokia launches 5G routing silicon

Nokia has announced the launch of its fifth generation IP routing silicon which it claims will set new benchmarks for IP network security and energy efficiency.

The Finnish telecoms giant’s new FP5 will enable service providers to “efficiently scale network capacity and enable new higher speed IP services”. The new routing silicon adds support for high density 800GE routing interfaces and new embedded line rate, flow-based encryption capabilities as well as offering 75% reduction in power consumption compared to its predecessors.

Nokia has said its fifth generation FP5 network processing silicon was especially created for service providers that require mission critical IP networks to be increasingly secure, agile and sustainable. Alongside the routing silicon, Nokia has also launched a new suite of IP routing solutions to help service providers “transform mission critical IP networks in the face of growing threats from network-level attacks and security breaches”.

The company worked alongside Orange France, NTT Docomo and BT on the development of the FP5, which reportedly “brings a generational leap in router network capacity”. The service router platforms are the first to support high-density 800GE and 1.6 Tb/s clear channel routing interfaces for applications including mobile transport, IP core, peering, BNG and provider edge. Alongside this, a new series of fixed form factor 7750 Service Router-1 platforms will enable FP5 to be used in smaller network locations.
