Nokia announced it will enhance NTT DOCOMO’s nationwide IP core backbone and enable transport network slicing as it rolls out new 5G mobile services.
The enhancement will allow granular SLAs, network scale, capacity and agility, along with increased power and resource efficiency.
DOCOMO deployed Nokia’s 7750 SR-14s core routers, powered by its ground-breaking FP routing silicon. FP5 line cards provide future-ready 800GE capability, increase capacity by more than three times with a 75 percent power savings over previous generations, and simplify network evolution with concurrent line rate FP4 and FP5 line card operation in the same system. This will extend the life and sustainability of the systems as DOCOMO’s customer bandwidth needs increase in the future.
