Alcatel-Lucent introduces 7750 SR-e series of IP edge routers

Alcatel-Lucent plans to introduce a new series of IP routers that will give service providers and enterprises an economically optimised platform for smaller locations in large-scale IP networks, or as a full-service router for smaller networks.

The new 7750 SR-e service router will expand Alcatel-Lucent’s highly successful 7750 Service Router (SR) family, extending the benefits of service routing further into the network to give service providers and enterprises IP routing technology scaled to their needs at different network locations.
