The Finnish company has just presented its new FP4 chipset that will be included in two of its network products.


Nokia is still betting on the hardware field and this time it does with the release of its new silicon chipset baptized with the name FP4 .

Among its features, it stands out for offering six times faster speed than current chipsets, since it allows to reach 2.4 terabits per second .

This is the first multi-terabit network processor made of silicon that allows to work with loads of IP data in terabits , and will be installed in the service router (SR) Nokia 7750 , as well as the expandable routing system (XRS) -XC .

Thanks to the F4 chipset, the Nokia 7750 can be configured to reach 144 Tbits / s , and can scale up to a capacity of 288 Tbits / s , while the routing system provides a speed of 576 Tbits / s .

Steve Vogelsang, CTO of Nokia IP and Optics, stressed that the chipset was created to deliver the speed that emerging technologies need .

In that sense, from Nokia’s Bell Labs laboratories they point out that IP traffic will be more than double the current one over the next five years , driven by technologies such as autonomous cars, machine learning, and Internet of Things sensors.

Another important section in the Nokia FP4 chipset is security, as it is specially designed to offer protection against DDoS attacks .
