Ericsson announces router 8801


Ericsson’s new Router 8801, the latest addition to Ericsson’s flagship subscriber management portfolio, is designed to accelerate the adoption of cloud and video services in today’s increasingly connected environment.
Router 8801 is a high performing ultra-compact 240 Gbps 1RU router which supports distributed Broadband Network Gateway (BNG), distributed cloud gateway, distributed provider edge and hyper-scale Open Flow switch with integrated inline high touch applications.
Router 8801 runs powerful in-house smart network processor SNP 4000, delivering open platform with application aware and subscriber aware characteristics that enable personalised services for additional revenue streams.
Arne Sjule, head of product area: IP routing at Ericsson says: “Exponential traffic and the growth of over-the-top applications are forcing service providers to scale their network. Router 8801 is cost optimized for disaggregated deployment scenarios which makes it attractive for next generation distributed cloud architecture.
“With this deployment, network operators will get a solution to efficiently meet rapidly increasing demand for advanced services by supporting today’s network requirements and also future growth in terms of speed, devices and applications.”
