FP Network Processor Technology
Designed to expect the unexpected
Nokia FP network processor technology provides breakthrough silicon innovation that powers the industry’s biggest, highest-density and most advanced IP routers. Our FP5, FP4 and FP3 processors enable service providers, webscale companies and enterprises to seize new opportunities by building high-performance IP networks that are scalable, secure and cost-effective.
These processors build on our legacy as the leader in IP router silicon design. We were the first to deliver 10 Gb/s, 100 Gb/s, 400 Gb/s and 3.0 Tb/s chipsets. With the 4.8 Tb/s FP5, we provide more capacity than any other network processor in the market, without sacrificing the performance or feature breadth. FP5 is the first network processor with line rate encryption capabilities and it drives down power consumption by 75% over FP4. With FP4, we offered the first 3.0 Tb/s network processor and set new standards by supporting terabit speeds, network-integrated security, and lowered power consumption by 50% over FP3. FP3 was a groundbreaking 400G chipset deployed in hundreds of IP networks worldwide.
Each generation of FP silicon supports seamless backward compatibility and quick adaptation of new features and protocols, providing the best investment protection in the industry.
