    Alcatel-Lucent prepares a new core router for battle

    Alcatel-Lucent introduced its 7950 XRS router this week, addressing the ever-evolving needs of today’s core networks invaded by video, mobile devices and cloud-based services. Alcatel-Lucent aims to break the core router duopoly created by Cisco and Juniper, and then tap into a $4 billion dollar market. With 100G Ethernet ports, a 400G FP3 processor and an elegant power-saving design, the Paris-based hardware maker wants to “modernize the global backbone of the Internet.” Verizon is applauding. But are enough service providers willing – in such a critical area – to give Alcatel-Lucent their core networks based simply on performance specs.
    It’s a tough racket. Grizzled, entrenched and highly methodical, the core router market will be difficult for ALU to penetrate, even with a top-shelf product.
