Nokia said a suite of new IP technology launches has been designed to prepare businesses and operators for a complete rethink of how their internet infrastructure is set up.

The Finland-based vendor unveiled three key pieces of tech that aim to keep networks up to speed amid what it predicts will be a more than doubling of IP traffic – to 330 exabytes a month – over the next five years.

A new routing platform, the 7750, supports a 144TBps configuration in a single shelf, while a new router, the 7950, scales to 576TBps, making it the world's highest-capacity router.

Both are backed by the world's first 2.4TBps chipset, the FP4 silicon, that Nokia claimed is six times more powerful than processors currently available.

The new kit also features “enhanced” packet intelligence and control technology, Deepfield's IP network analytics, and software-defined networking capabilities.

It will begin shipping in Q4 this year.

Basil Alwan, President of the ION Business Group at Nokia, said: "The internet platform is set to fully subsume HD on-demand video while simultaneously expanding with connectivity to billions of new devices.

“Stepping forward demands an immense performance increase, vastly improved insight and security and, of course, compelling economics.”

The launches have got the backing of BT.

The UK-based operator’s Chief Architect Neil McRae said: “With demand continuing to rocket, together with more cloud-based applications, innovations like Nokia's new FP4 silicon and routing platforms allow us to maintain our commitment to our customers by balancing capacity, intelligence, visibility and security, so we can transform to an insight-driven, automated networking approach for building and operating our networks.

“And because these innovations also work with existing platforms, we can gracefully evolve our existing networks to complement new builds to prepare for the next wave of ultrafast broadband, 5G, IoT and machine communications."
