Hyperoptic chooses Nokia for IP core network upgrade

Oct. 4, 2022
Hyperoptic will leverage Nokia’s 7750 SR-s routers. The platforms can support 800GbE thanks to their use of Nokia’s FP5 routing silicon.

Nokia says it will supply routers to UK alternative broadband network operator Hyperoptic as part of the wholesale infrastructure provider’s IP core network upgrade initiative.

Hyperoptic will leverage Nokia’s 7750 SR-s routers. The platforms can support 800GbE thanks to their use of Nokia’s FP5 routing silicon (see "Nokia unveils FP5 fifth-generation routing silicon for 800GbE support"). The FP5 enables a capacity increase of more than 3X in the same space and power envelope as Nokia’s previous FP4 generation – which Hyperoptic already has deployed in its IP core network. Nokia points out that the transition to the capabilities of the latest silicon is made easier by the fact that the FP5 and FP4 can concurrently operate at line rate in the same SR-s system.

“We have had a long relationship with Nokia, and they were the natural choice to help us evolve our IP network to match our growing customer base. This upgrade will allow us to balance capacity and sustainability to deliver the best customer experience,” commented Dana Tobak, CEO and co-founder of Hyperoptic.

“We’re pleased to expand our relationship with Hyperoptic to help them deliver on two strategic priorities – future-proofed capacity and sustainability. Nokia’s IP routing solutions offer best in class scalability and efficiency, helping Hyperoptic sustainably manage their growth initiatives,” added Vach Kompella, vice president, IP Networks Division, Nokia.
