FP Network Processor Technology

Raise your Xpectations with breakthrough silicon innovations

Continuous innovation unleashed with routing silicon

Nokia FP network processor technology provides breakthrough silicon innovations that powers the industry’s biggest, highest-density and most advanced IP routers. Nokia believes that custom, in-house design of silicon is essential for more demanding roles and scale networks efficiently, reliably, and sustainably while minimizing TCO. Our FPcx, FP5, FP4 and FP3 processors enable communication service providers (CSPs), webscale network operators (WNOs), industries and enterprises to seize new opportunities by building high-performance IP networks that are deterministic, scalable, secure and cost-effective.

Nokia FPcx: 5.0 Tb/s network processor

Nokia’s newest family of fully programmable routing silicon, the FPcx brings the value of Nokia’s high-performance and feature-rich FP silicon into a compact and extensible package optimized for IP access, aggregation and smaller edge applications. It allows you to deliver secure, deterministic and resilient IP networking services at the right economics, while offering unmatched flexibility to quickly adapt to new requirements.

Key benefits of IP routing platforms powered by FPcx for CSP and mission-critical enterprise networks include:

  • A fully programmable NPU to maximize network lifespan and minimize TCO
  • Fine QoS granularity of SLA enforcement for new levels of assured services
  • Enabling ISSU on platforms with a single NPU with no packet loss, revolutionizing how simplex systems are upgraded and maintained
  • Unlocking the benefits of 112G SerDes technology to drive higher density, more energy-efficient optics (including coherent pluggable optics)
  • A precise attack sensor and mitigation element for DDoS protection without impacting performance

Nokia FP5: 6.0 Tb/s network processor

FP5 is designed specifically to ensure your IP network continues to thrive in these increasingly uncertain times. FP5 delivers a no-compromise approach, adding more capacity, integration, security capabilities and size reduction, all while significantly reducing energy consumption. With FP5, you gain the agility to quickly evolve your services, neutralize new or escalating network security threats and satisfy growing capacity needs while maintaining optimal efficiency, performance and scale.

Key benefits of IP routing platforms powered by FP5 for CSP, webscale and mission-critical enterprise networks include:

  • A fully programmable NPU to maximize network lifespan and minimize TCO
  • Muti-dimensional scale with fully deterministic performance
  • Support for 112G SERDES enabling 800GE interfaces and a new generation of power-efficient optics
  • A precise attack sensor and mitigation element for DDoS protection without impacting performance
  • Ubiquitous, line-rate MACsec/ANYsec encryption services with no performance penalty
  • Energy-efficiency, delivering capability + capacity + power efficiency without compromise

Nokia FP4: 3.0 Tb/s network processor

The FP4 chipset delivers unprecedented scale, security and functionality without sacrificing performance. It is fully programmable and designed for a longer lifecycle with unique architecture innovations that provide unmatched economic benefits and investment protection. FP4 also features a very high degree of component integration. This integration significantly reduces the chipset footprint, leading to lower complexity and power consumption.

With IP routing platforms powered by FP4, service providers, webscale, industries and enterprises can:

  • Support multi-dimensional scale without compromising performance
  • Adapt to transient conditions with real-time network telemetry and network control
  • Secure systems and data with network-integrated DDoS mitigation
  • Get maximum value from existing network investments with routing platforms that deliver hardware and software extensibility

Nokia FP3: 400 Gb/s network processor

FP3 was the world’s first 400 Gb/s network processor. Today, it powers the industry’s most scalable and high-performing portfolio of IP edge and core router platforms. FP3 silicon continues to coexist with FP4 routing silicon within our IP router portfolio.

With IP routing platforms powered by FP3, service providers, webscale, industries and enterprises can:

  • Deploy high-density 10GE, 40GE and 100GE interfaces
  • Scale bandwidth without sacrificing network performance
  • Increase port density and enable more efficient services and applications
  • Reduce footprint and power consumption with high-capacity line cards
