Isocore, Ixia validate Alcatel-Lucent 100-Gigabit Ethernet service routing

JULY 28, 2010 -- Alcatel-Lucent (NYSE: ALU) and Ixia (NASDAQ: XXIA) have announced that Isocore has tested and verified the Alcatel-Lucent 7750 Service Router’s (SR) 100-Gigabit Ethernet (100GbE) performance using Ixia’s K2 100 GE test platform. The results validate the 7750 Service Router’s ability to support the scaling of high-touch service connections at 100-Gbps line-rate speeds, the companies say. The test results also demonstrate the viability of 100GbE for broad deployment throughout carrier networks, extending beyond the IP core and into the service edge and metro, Alcatel-Lucent and Ixia say.

The test is the first 100GbE demonstration of line-rate, loss-less transmission using a diverse mix of service traffic types with thousands of queues and service attributes, according to the companies. Ixia’s K2 and IxNetwork were used to emulate the Ethernet and IP traffic seen on business virtual private network (VPN) services. The results confirmed that the Alcatel-Lucent 7750 SR’s 100GbE interfaces supported and sustained 100-Gbps speeds while delivering residential broadband, subscriber management, business Ethernet and VPNs, and wireless 3G/LTE services . 

The test emulated both customer edge (CE) and provider edge (PE) routers with OSPF (Open Shortest Path First), LDP (Label Distribution Protocol) and MP-iBGP (multiprotocol-Interior Border Gateway Protocol) sessions. The Alcatel-Lucent 7750 SR was configured with 8,000 IP-VPNs, 4,000 virtual private LAN service (VPLS) links, and 20,000 Layer 2 VPNs.
