7950 Extensible routing system

Stay a step ahead of evolving service demands on the IP core


The Nokia 7950 Extensible Routing System (XRS) is a next-generation routing platform that can help you sustain profitable growth in a highly competitive and constantly changing market. It delivers the scale, efficiency, and versatility you need to address evolving service demands driven by the cloud, 5G, and the Internet of Things.

Drawing on our proven silicon, software, and systems integration innovations, the 7950 XRS lets you build a core network with enough headroom to meet capacity demands well into the next decade. On one common platform you can cost effectively address your IP routing, internet peering, Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS), and infrastructure service requirements.

The 7950 XRS has been deployed by telecom, cable, mobile, utility and private network operators of all sizes. It is also the trusted routing platform of major Web-scale operators and internet exchange providers around the world.

Benefits and features

Supports all services on one platform

  • Addresses the full range of core routing requirements on common hardware
  • Enables you to build a versatile, reliable, and converged core network that evolves with your needs and protects your hardware investments
  • Leverages our resilient and feature-rich Service Router Operating System (SROS) and industry-leading 3.0 Tb/s FP4 routing silicon
  • Features a flexible, pay-as-you-go software licensing model

Scales efficiently

  • Uses a modular and extensible hardware design that ensures granular and economical scaling up to 96 Tb/s HD capacity in a standard 19” rack
  • Delivers up to 120 400G clear channel interfaces or 480 100GE ports in a single chassis, with flexible 10GE and 40GE break-out options
  • Scale out Gigabit and 10GE capacity using 7210 SAS-S Ethernet satellites

Eases IP/optical integration

  • Eliminates the need for optical transponders with tunable 10GE and 100GE DWDM optics that interface directly with the photonic transport layer
  • Leverages a standards-based GMPLS user–network interface to efficiently coordinate IP routing and transport requirements and dynamically set up optical segments and end-to-end transport connections

Enables cross-domain management and carrier SDN integration

  • Model-driven network element management and carrier SDN integration through CLI, NETCONF and gRPC/gNMI using YANG models
  • Works with the Network Services Platform to unify service automation and network optimization across the IP, MPLS, Ethernet, and optical transport layers

A proven platform with extensive market validation

  • Globally deployed by fixed, mobile and cable operators, including 9 out of the top 10 largest telecommunication companies and the world’s largest internet exchange
  • Proven versatility with references in IP/MPLS core routing and switching, metro core and aggregation, Internet peering, data center interconnect and IP video distribution
