N okia has partnered with TOP-IX (Torino Piemonte Internet eXchange) to provide 400GE network IP routing platforms. This will allow the ISP, based in north-west Italy, to increase the capacity of its network services in the face of an increased geographical footprint.

Under the agreement, the TOP-IX Nokia 7250 Interconnect Router (IXR) -X1 will deploy platforms with a 400GE network for enhanced network infrastructure thanks to better network automation and operational capabilities.

The Nokia 7250 IXR platforms are based on the Service Router operating system (SR OS). The scalable operating system supports a wide range of physical and virtualized routers. The latest move is likely to be extremely beneficial for Nokia and TOP-IX to meet the dynamic preferences of consumers and businesses.

The 7250 (IXR) -X1 platforms are designed to support emerging 5G technologies such as Multi-access Edge Computing, distributed core, and centralized and cloud-based RAN. The platforms provide multi-terabit connectivity across data centers and large-scale networks. Thanks to its pioneering network performance and reliability, the offering enables web and enterprise networks to meet growing traffic requirements. In addition, they are specifically designed for access and aggregation of critical enterprise applications and fixed-to-mobile convergence.

The agreement will allow TOP-IX not only to strengthen its regional interconnection, but also to modernize its peering infrastructure, directly and through alliances across Europe. In addition to seamlessly expanding the network capacity of its regional Internet Exchange Provider, Nokia's avant-garde technology provides TOP-IX cloud services through its IP routing solution while maintaining data sovereignty.

Guided by such a positive endeavor, the latest network modernization move is likely to benefit both entities. This will improve the visibility, operational efficiency and time-to-market of the TOP-IX network and strengthen Nokia's position in the thriving 5G era, driven by growing technological innovations and partnerships. Nokia is well positioned to benefit from the growing demand for next-generation connectivity. Significant progress has been made on the three-stage path of value creation. Focusing on capital allocation and technology leadership in 2021 is likely to drive growth in 2022 and beyond. The Finnish-based telecommunications equipment manufacturer aims to further the timing and cost competitiveness of its products through further 5G investments. All of these factors are good for long-term growth.
